New at NorthPark

Connecticut-based men’s athleisure brand Rhone opened last spring on the first level near Dillard’s. One of only two storefronts in Texas, Rhone carries everything you need to look stylish while golfing, running, commuting, or just lounging on the couch. If you’re looking to mix up your wardrobe, also stop into Todd Synder in the Nordstrom Court. The New York menswear line carries everything from sport coats to polos, cashmere to sweatsuits. Finally, Austin-based bootmakers Tecovas touted boots made for shopping at its buzzy grand opening on June 30. Located next to Vuori, the 5,000-plus square-foot store carries boots, Western apparel, and accessories, plus free boot-shining, personalized letter stamping, and complimentary beer. 

IKEA Is Coming to Southlake

Scandi-chic homegoods giant IKEA recently announced plans to open a third North Texas location later this year in Southlake. However, unlike the Grand Prairie and Frisco iterations, where you can while an afternoon away wandering the furniture mazes as the scent of meatballs wafts by, this store will be smaller. At just under 11,000 square feet, the Park Village spot won’t include a restaurant or product warehouse. Part of the brand’s “Plan and order point with Pickup” concept, the location is more about inspiration than shopping. Here, you can meet with a specialist and plan and customize your kitchen, bedroom, or living room spaces. When you’re done, order your desired pieces and come pick them up at a later date. 1041 East Southlake Blvd.

STAUD is Popping into Market 

Since 2020, Market has been welcoming fashion brands from across the country to take part in its incubator program. For six months (or more), these brands can take up retail space in the Highland Park Village store to test the Texas waters. The program has seen a fair amount of success, with five popups later opening permanent brick-and-mortars in Dallas. On July 21, a new brand is popping up in Market: Staud. Originally supposed to come to Market last August, the LA-based STAUD has made a name for itself thanks to its cool and relaxed women’s fashion. During the Market popup, locals can shop the brand’s ready-to-wear styles and accessories, as well as pieces from its Swim and Court (athletic wear) collections.
