Fashion in Seattle – Escada vs. Gucci

March 2, 2009

 

escada Gucci  for Escada –   Located directly across from louis vuitton Washington sees the opening of it’s first Gucci retail store, 1 of 16 within the US.   Retail specialists believe Gucci will be more succesful than Escada, primarily due to the cultish obsession buyers have with their handbags.   Accesories decadent with Gucci print costing hundreds of dollars vs. thousands of dollars womens outfit (Escada), tend to be more aggreable with the Pacific Northwest shopping demographic (makes sense to me).   Interestingly enough, Gucci had been considering opening shop East of Seattle, in Bellevue where Neiman Marcus will be opening.  However Bellevue Nordstroms’ in-store mini Gucci-eria kept Gucci Retail west of 520.  How’s that for proof that fashion is budding in Seattle?  Or, is it just lack luster designer driven appeal where 150K earners buy fashion for their logos and status – and the 20k earners…like you and me 🙂
