Shoe lovers, the Brian Atwood New York flagship boutique is open for business! With its arched entryway (carved from a single piece of marble), custom satin seating and mirrored walls, 655 Madison Avenue is a shopper's dream. "I wanted a closed environment, sort of like a Faberge egg—to give just a little hint of what's inside from the outside," he told as he gave us a tour of the Manhattan space. "Then when you come in you have a chic haven for women who love shoes and handbags to just come and go crazy." The designer collaborated with decorator William Sofield of Studio Sofield on the luxurious interior. "There's that balance of very Old Hollywood glamour with gorgeous sexiness," said Atwood. Adding to the unique experience, all the shoes in the designer collection—including exclusive store styles—will have a 655 Madison Avenue metal plaque on the soles (left). We're ready to run over in our stilettos, how about you?
