I had heard about the new Ralph Lauren mansion at the top of Madison Avenue through one of my contacts and naturally had to go and take a look for myself. This store is stunning. This new mansion house houses the womens wear collections and mirrors the Ralph Lauren mansion opposite which houses the menswear. Apparently a 1960's building was here before this store was built in its Beaux Art style I believe, and it took three months just to install all of the decorative plaster work. This really is a grand old place with merchandise placed strategically around the store while maintaining the sense that the space was once a home. Of course, it never was, but fabulous seasonally decorated chandeliers and gorgeous garlands this really is place to view.
