OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. Buzz Loewe Retail: The year 2023 was very eventful. We rejoiced at the openings of Loewe, Balmain, and Vacheron Constantin and were pleased to see the glorious expansion of Gucci at NorthPark Center and Louis Vuitton at the Galleria Dallas … In 2024, we can't wait to receive our invites for the slew of parties to herald the debut of Prada at NorthPark Center and the new expanded spaces of Chanel (adding a second story to its former location) and Dior (moving into the former Ralph Lauren) in Highland Park Village … Some intriguing pop-ups popped up. Augustinus Bader, the coveted skincare brand with a who's who of clients, has set up shop in West Village. Launched in 2018, the brand — you've likely seen their blue bottle on Instagram posts — is backed by more than 30 years of groundbreaking research by stem-cell scientist and doctor of regenerative medicine Professor Augustinus Bader. Renowned celebrity facialist Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine even came to town for the opening … Through Wednesday, January 31, check out Agua by Agua Bendita, the Colombian brand known for its lush prints and sustainability-minded swimwear, in Highland Park Village. They were recently included in the Gucci vault and have chosen Dallas as their first retail space in the U.S. Sports: You're probably seeing this and thinking, 'Sports?' Well, don't worry; this will likely be a once-a-year tradition. We all love tennis — the celebrity athletes, the outfits that the players and spectators are wearing. The Dallas Open is scheduled for February 3 through 11 at the Styslinger/Altec Tennis Complex at Southern Methodist University. If you enjoy an afternoon watching some of the hottest stars swing their rackets, you won't be disappointed: This year's lineup includes Frances Tiafoe, Tommy Paul, Ben Shelton, and Reillly Opelka. Social: If "Dry January" is noted in red in your Smythson datebook, we get it. However, once February begins, it's time to slip on your favorite Blahnik kitten heels. We start out strong with the Broadway Dallas Gala on Friday, February 2. This year's event features a full performance of Tina — The Tina Turner Musical. Join gala chairs John Quattrocchi and Joseph DeMartino for a rock 'n' roll evening, with proceeds supporting the nonprofit's mission of giving the gift of Broadway to more than 40,000 students and their families each year. That includes 3,400 Dallas ISD students and more than 5,000 students from 72 schools who participate in the High School Musical Theatre Awards … Next is an annual event we always look forward to: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Saint Valentine's Day Luncheon & Fashion Show. Set for Thursday, February 8, at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, this year's event celebrates 40 years of fashion for a cure with co-chairs Brooke Shelby and Samantha Wortley, along with advisory chairs Nancy Gopez, Maggie Kipp, and Melinda Knowles. Come together with fashionistas and corporate and community leaders to launch spring in the DFW area while honoring lives touched by blood cancers. Billy Fong W e adore being first. Dallas loves the distinction of having "it" before anyone else. For instance, Highland Park Village, developed in 1931, was America's first planned shopping center. And that quaint little retail hamlet has just debuted Texas' first Loewe boutique (located between Akris and Veronica Beard). The Spanish luxury house was founded in 1846 as a leathermaking collective, with craftsmanship still very apparent in the coveted handbags and shoe collections. Creative director Jonathan Anderson (who also designs for his own label, JW Anderson) has recently celebrated a decade with the house and is a darling of the fashion world. The Dallas store features a full offering of women's ready-to-wear and accessories in a space that's a thoughtful blend of art, craft, and fashion. You'll encounter blue and white tiles handmade in Spain that blend harmoniously with the smooth expanses of poured concrete and glass. Prepare to find coveted Puzzle Fold bags atop Loewe's signature podiums crafted from marble, have a seat upon an Angular Utrecht chair designed by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, and view a selection of the brand's collection of art, including Walter Price's acrylic gesso on wood piece, Starry Sky (2022). And, BTW, you might be pondering the biggest question of all: How do you say the name? Yes, perish the thought of looking incredibly provincial and mispronouncing. Go straight to the Loewe website for a tutorial — we've got to love that they understand the difficulty. Repeat after us in a sexy, in-the-know voice: "lo-weh-vay."
