At some point toward the end of this summer, I decided to sit down and write a round-up of all the stores that had opened in NorthPark Center. But then I realized what a wild thing that would be to do. There were so many new stores, and so many new stores still to come. So I waited, patiently, until the final month of the year to reflect on the many changing doors of the high-end shopping center, and my favorite museum in Dallas.
Let’s do this.
LIK Fine Art
Opened: May 26
A perfect fit for NorthPark’s museum-like atmosphere, LIK Fine Art showcases Peter Lik’s photography in a gallery situated between Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s.
Opened: June 8
The Los Angeles-based brand’s first standalone Dallas store offers a clean-lined space to shop for vintage-inspired frames co-signed by celebs like Johnny Depp and Jennifer Aniston.
Opened: June 9
The made-in-Italy brand’s first Texas store (and only third American store) opened between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom this summer, with an understated design to match the clothes’ unfussy glamour.
Opened: June 15
Until this year, Favor the Kind was one of the few spots you could find Johnny Was’ Cali-cool tunics, blouses, and kimonos. Now, the luxe, bohemian designs can be found in a standalone store between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom on level one.
Rodd & Gunn
Opened: August 1
With roots in New Zealand, Rodd & Gunn is a veritable dream closet for sartorially-minded men who dig the outdoors.
Louis Vuitton Men’s
Opened: August 3
The first Louis Vuitton store in Texas dedicated to accessories and ready-to-wear for men is also one of NorthPark’s most beautiful new spaces.
Opened: August 22
The beloved Los Angeles-based denim brand’s first local boutique features a thoughtful interior design that blended Paige’s California roots with a touch of Dallas style.
Opened: August 23
The Australian skincare brand has a tradition of making each retail location aesthetically unique, which they’ve continued by enlisting Canadian architect Alain Carle to design Aesop’s third Dallas store.
Opened: October 13
Funded by MUAs and influencers in Los Angeles, Morphe brought their extensive (and affordable) selection of palettes and brushes to their second standalone location in Dallas this fall.
Opened: October 27
When you want to pick up a Karl Lagerfeld- or Marc Jacobs-designed onesie or hooded coat for your little one, this kid-friendly boutique is your spot.
Opened: October 31
Brittany Merrill Underwood’s non-profit jewelry company has had several homes in Dallas, including its first brick-and-mortar in Deep Ellum, but the luxe vibes of NorthPark match beautifully with the brand’s high-end (and life-changing) pieces.
Scotch & Soda
Opened: November 23
The Amsterdam-based retailer’s first Texas store is filled with men’s and women’s apparel that doesn’t shy away from color, and some seriously elevated outerwear.
Opened: December 7
Historically, the Austin-based activewear brand has avoided shopping centers for their brick-and-mortar locations, but they made an exception for NorthPark. Outdoor Voice’s first permanent Dallas space is reminiscent of a retro arcade, from a basketball hoop (perfect for “doing things” and testing leggings) to a mechanical bull in the heart of the store.
