Iconic menswear designer Joseph Abboud enlisted award-winning luxury retail designer Jeffrey Hutchison & Associates to create his first free-standing retail store in New York City. Located at 424 Madison Avenue, the 4,300 square foot space will be a modern, American interpretation of a classic Savile Row shop, staying true to Joseph Abboud’s sophisticated brand and design aesthetic. The store was launched with a special night in celebration of fashion, art and design on April 14th from 6-9PM. Thanks to all who attended.

JHA’s Vision: “Joseph’s designs are rooted in a classic approach, but with modern updates and surprises. The longer you study his clothes the more you become aware of the thought and craft he has invested into them. We wanted to design a store that felt the same way.”

“In considering an architect for the launch of Joseph Abboud retail, Jeffrey was the natural choice given his track record in creating successful luxury menswear retail locations that have a sense of place. It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with him on reintroducing the Joseph Abboud brand, showcasing the full collection in an engaging environment.”

Joseph Abboud

Iconic menswear designer Joseph Abboud enlisted JHA to create his first free-standing retail store in New York City. Opened in March of 2015 at 424 Madison Avenue, the 4,300 square foot space is a modern, American interpretation of a classic Savile Row shop, staying true to Joseph Abboud’s sophisticated brand and design aesthetic. Rich wall coverings in grey Manila hemp, cream herringbone and taupe raw silk paired with gray washed oak and bronze metal line the interior, highlighting crafted details such as hammered steel and stitched leather table tops. The exterior of the building was restored; altering the facade color, adding grey tweed fabric awnings, and refurbishing the pre-existing bronze metal storefronts. On the first floor the customer’s eyes are drawn to a dramatic 15-foot tall Venetian plaster vaulted ceiling lit with brass and hand blown glass chandeliers. Large brass pendant lights hang down, illuminating an iron staircase at the center of the store. The mezzanine floor hosts the Joseph Abboud Custom clothing experience, featuring a wall of over 250 Italian fabrics on oversized swatches displayed on specially-made bronze hooks. The store features thoughtful residential touches throughout such as area rugs, limestone busts, round decorative mirrors, and framed pieces of hand- drawn charcoal artwork of Joseph Abboud designs by Bill Rancitelli.Joseph Abboud by Jeffrey Hutchison & Associates
