From heavyweight canvas dungarees to bejeweled velour track suits, Mall of America plays up its range with two new stores.
Function is fashion at Carhartt, now open at MOA. Yes, that Carhartt—since 1889, maker of serious work wear, from lab coats to flame resistant bib overalls. Today, Carhartt continues to offer industrial gear along with active clothing for the entire family. It's durable, yet updated.
And then there's the uber feminine Juicy Couture, scheduled to open today, Tuesday, Aug. 28, just down the south corridor from Carhartt. The store is designed to resemble a jewel box, from the crystal chandelier to the stripe and floral print wallpaper and luxe rugs. Beyond those signature track suits, find fashion apparel for women, girls and baby, along with handbags, shoes, lingerie, swimwear, fragrance, accessories, jewelry and sunglasses. Started by two friends in Los Angeles, Juicy Couture is now owned by Fifth & Pacific (formerly Liz Claiborne).
