C. Wonder is opening Saturday October 22 at 11 a.m. The flagship is located at 72 Spring Street at Crosby in Soho. This is Chris Burch's (ex- husband and business partner of Tory Burch) new baby. I am so excited about this fresh new retail concept because it is needed in the marketplace and will be welcomed by all. Products will be available online as well as additional stores to open later this year in Garden State Plaza (Paramus, NJ), Roosevelt Field Mall (Garden City, N.Y.) and Westchester Mall (White Plains, N.Y.). The store will carry the C. Wonder brand of clothes, jewelry, accessories, shoes, housewares, dinnerware, home decor, and in-house monograming. Below is a video introducing C Wonder and a collection of photos.
