Bandier is bringing its A-game to Dallas. Last fall, the multi-brand luxury activewear retailer opened its first brick-and-mortar store outside of New York in Highland Park Village. According to founder Jennifer Bandier, the new neighborhood was a natural fit. “I visited Dallas for the first time last December and instantly fell in love with the city. It’s a beautiful place with great energy,” she says. Shoppers will be in good company: The store, known as the “Barneys of activewear,” counts Lena Dunham and Liv Tyler among its star clients. In addition to its well-edited selection of workout wear and accessories from emerging and established brands around the world, the 1,800-square-foot space will house a Beats by Dre listening station and lounge, as well as host wellness events, trunk shows, fitness classes and more.

It’s in the Bag
Luxury shopping center Highland Park Village is welcoming shoppers with a certain joie de vivre, thanks to the addition of luxury French fashion house Céline.

Inside, the lighting and bespoke furniture—a terra cotta flower pot, wood and concrete seating, a pink Portuguese marble display case—designed by Danish artist FOS provide a suitable setting for the swank bags, sunglasses, leather goods, shoes and ready-to-wear from creative director Phoebe Philo.
