Dallas can be known for having the stereotype of being big (too big) and fancy (too fancy). And while it can be big and fancy at times, locals are typically put together in an effortless way. The two of us we’re surprised when Vince moved into a spot at Highland Park Village (a cozy outdoor shopping center in the heart of the city) – it was a long time coming that the brand make its entrance since to us, their casual, elegant pieces align perfectly with the aesthetic of the city.
One of the fun projects Vince has implemented with each of their store locations is going on-site and shooting the city and locals of each spot. The “Neighborhoods” concept already features four stores and the Dallas Highland Park Village neighborhood just made its debut on the site…you might recognize two familiar faces (cough, cough – us). Aside from showing and talking about favorite spots around the city (HP Village, The Perot Museum, SMU’s Campus, Bishop Arts District, The Dallas Museum of Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Center), many of the summer collection pieces were styled and all the ensembles are perfect for Dallas. From the non-traditional denim on denim separates, to the easy dresses for day and night, each look is something that would easily be spotted on locals no matter where the location in Dallas.
We’re a bit biased in thinking that the Vince’s Highland Park Village Neighborhood is the best of the bunch but it’s really fun to take a look at the other features and see how the vibe of other neighborhoods influences what locals wear and how pieces are styled. It’s obvious that the Vince aesthetic isn’t constrained to one location, the brand works across all lifestyles.
