Zac Posen Is Opening His First Store

Zac Posen.

Zac Posen may have decamped to the Paris shows for the past two seasons, where he is a member of the Chambre Syndicale and where people "respect" and "understand" his clothes, but he hasn't forsaken New York entirely. WWD reports that he's opening his first retail store in the meatpacking district, which will sell his lower-priced line, Z Spoke. Located on Washington Street between 13th and 14th Streets, the store will replace what is currently the Scoop Beach boutique, and is set to bow on August 25. [WWD]
