When Jacques Ferber closed the doors of its street-level flagship store at 1708 Walnut Street—where it’s been since 1911—in January, smack dab in the middle of a cold winter, it seemed like poor timing. They set up a temporary shop for repairs and storage up the street, with promises of spring reopening. (Vans is taking over its former street-level space at 1708 Walnut.) And now, just as we turn our sights to fall, and then to winter, the store has reopened, in a light-filled second-floor space just above its former location—one that was totally worth the wait.
The Ferber team preserved details of the historic building (take a look at the wide wood frames around the mirrors—those were designed by Frank Furness). The final result? A modern space with plenty of character, just like the collection itself.
The salon still features its covetable selection of furs, along with Moncler and Herno outerwear and Longchamp bags. Head there now to get a head start on fall (fur—both real and faux—is huge this year), and stay tuned for details about a grand opening celebration in October.
