Saks Fifth Avenue is officially taking over Greenwich Avenue, and we could not be more excited! Their latest store, THE COLLECTIVE, opens February 2nd. Greenwich International Film Festival 2017 supporters received an exclusive preview of the store at the Grand Opening Party on February 1st. Guests were treated to live models wearing looks curated by fashion industry influencers as well as a deejay, Boomerang booth, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Guests shopped and mingled while taking in the new Tom Ford beauty counter, exclusive to THE COLLECTIVE on Greenwich Avenue.

THE COLLECTIVE joins the original Saks Fifth Avenue location as well as the recently opened shoe boutique, 10022-SHOE, to form The Saks Shops at Greenwich. The new space, featuring 14,000 sq. ft. of retail, brings everything you loved about the contemporary collections of the original store to a larger space, allowing more designers and pieces to be showcased.

THE COLLECTIVE offers a unique opportunity for moms to shop with their tween to teenage daughters, offering styles that will appeal to both tastes, while still having a distinct point of view.

The new space has a chic, downtown vibe. Everything from the lighting to sunglass nook screams contemporary, but still feels like the aesthetic fits with the main Saks store and 10022-SHOE. Each store has their own unique identity, but they fit together perfectly to create the ultimate shopping experience.
