Designer Jonathan Simkhai served up one of the most talked-about looks of the 2023 Met Gala, and now he's delivering for Dallas women, too. The very first SIMKHAIboutique in Texas has just opened at Highland Park Village.
It's just his third retail store in the country, after locations in Los Angeles and SoHo New York.
“SIMKHAI is thrilled to be joining the Highland Park Village community,” the designer says in a release. “The Village’s one-of-a-kind shopping destination offers a unique experience that SIMKHAI is so excited to connect with and share our offerings with the amazing women of Dallas.”
The new shop - located in the center of the Village next to Panerai - follows the company's yearlong success as a pop-up at MARKET Highland Park.
"The brand has established a presence with the Highland Park Village community, making for a timely store opening for the standalone location," Village officials say in a release.
A native of Tel Aviv, Israel, Simkhai founded his eponymous studio in 2010 and was a 2015 winner of the prestigious CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund. He says he "designs for the elevated everyday with innovative techniques and timeless craftsmanship."
Designs, he adds, take inspiration from architects and sculptors, "blending progressive construction techniques with intimate hand-detailing to create truly special garments and lifestyle design."
The Highland Park Village store carries women's ready-to-wear and swimwear alongside handbag and footwear accessories. The actual address is 91 Highland Park Village, and hours are 10 am-6 pm Monday-Saturday and 10 am-5 pm Sunday.
SIMKHAI is one of several high-profile openings at the shopping center this summer and fall, including Brioni, Balmain, and LOEWE.
