Gucci Gets Upgraded Digs

9/03/2008 12:01:00 AM
One more shopping related post, and then on to something else. Apparently, Gucci is going to be moving from it's locale in the Copley Mall over to an even nicer one.

Gucci is ditching ritzy Copley Place for even swankier digs this fall at the new uber-luxury condominium and hotel complex Mandarin Oriental on Boylston Street.

Gucci is the highest profile tenant to move into the new boutiques at the Mandarin and will be joined by upscale yoga merchant Lululemon Athletica and Italian fine linens purveyor Frette. The $250 million project will also house French restaurants L'Espalier and Sel de La Terre which are scheduled to open in September, several months later than expected because of a fire that swept through the Mandarin's spa and fitness center on the fourth floor this year.

Nice collection of stores. High end to be sure. I don't think I own anything from Gucci, definitely nothing from Lululemon (not really the yoga type), but I have used Frette stuff before. One of the hotels that I stay at when I travel for work uses Frette products. The sheets are ok, but the towels are awesome.
