Anyone else miss The Limited here in NYC? This Gen X favorite and current day beloved store for all things fashionable hasn’t had a presence in Manhattan for ten years, which has caused the shopping equivalent of a Quest for Fire for me as I hunt down store locations when I travel. The shopping treks can cease, Manhattan shoppers, because The Limited is coming to our beloved Soho for four fabulous days next week!
Recreated as a pop-up store (i.e. temporary retail boutique), The Limited will have live window installations and daily in-store experiences that will not only draw on current offerings, but the rich history of the store as well. Oh yes, ladies, the pop-up store will hail the return of the iconic 80’s wardrobe staple, the Forenza collection. Write this down: be one of the first 84 customers each day to purchase a Forenza Collection piece at the original price from the Collection launch in 1984.
