Italian designer Domenico Vacca celebrated the grand opening of his new flagship destination at 15 West 55th Street on May 3.
As previously reported by MR, the two-level store is part of 10-story building owned by Vacca that includes 30 long-term stay furnished residential units designed by Vacca himself. The store’s amenities includes a bespoke atelier, an Italian espresso bar & café, barber shop, beauty salon, rooftop terrace, art gallery, and private members-only club.
Following a red carpet arrival complemented by a beautiful Maserati display, guests were able to explore the various elements of the store, while enjoying specialty cocktails by Disaronno. VIPs were later invited to a party in the exclusive DV Club for dinner that featured live entertainment by the Umberto Smalia Band.
Among the notable guests were singer Maxwell, dancer-choreographer Savion Glover, actor Shaun Toub, film director Paul Haggis, Broadway producer Jordan Roth, and NFL athletes Pat Morrison, Chris Houston, Steve Manerei, and Dale Moss.
