You may have heard that there’s a new beehive buzzing on New York’s west side called Hudson Yards, noted for a suspended (and picturesque) walkway and the largest mall in the city. At this newest shopping destination one will find everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to couture stores, and even specialty boutiques. If SoHo and 5th Avenue really needed competition as French store hubs, it’s here, and all in one place opening doors to international stores and diverse activities. We’ve compiled some of the French locations within Hudson Yards to stop by.
The French maison de parfum based on eau de cologne has transformed the way we perceive scents, their intensity, and particularities. As one of the first perfume houses at Hudson Yards, Atelier Cologne is a sure scent destination. Check out Rose Anonyme (the rose that really, really smells of rose) and California Clementine that is essentially summer bottled in a flacon.
The renowned luxury house set up its newest outpost at Hudson Yards featuring all their exclusive collections and of course, menswear designed by Virgil Abloh.
Thomas Keller, Michelin-starred American chef, offers an addition to Hudson Yards: a perfectly manicured bakery. While there is also a Maison Kayser in the mall, it is at Bouchon where you will feel the intricacies of French patisserie and feel perfectly at home drinking a café crème.
You can find one of a kind, St.Tropez swimwear at Vilebrequin — especially for the guys as the brand specializes in men’s trunks.
The other luxury house offers an array of sophisticated French-wear ready to elevate fashion at Hudson Yards to the levels of Parisian haute couture.
Hailing directly from Place Vendôme, Van Cleef & Arpels offers a poetic selection of jewelry accessories. It is also perhaps one of the most renowned houses for engagement rings, in case that’s on your mind too.
Hudson Yards does well in balancing both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear fashions. Cremieux is here, all the way from St. Tropez, to dress the dapper Frenchmen. It’s certainly time to elevate those Riviera vibes before summer comes in full swing.
