Neapolitan – New Location ‘Perfect Fit’


The transformation of this 80-year-old building is astonishing to see. From grocery store to sporting goods to now the pinnacle of chic women’s fashion. If you are in the area and ever ventured into the former T.L. Fritts you will be amazed to see the new luxury shopping experience. A new limestone façade sets the appropriately sophisticated expectation for what lies behind the custom glass doors.

The original bow truss structure was revealed to provide an airy feel and used as the visual organizing tool for the interior layout. A series of alcoves and tailored vignettes showcase individual designers and fashion categories. The painted diamond pattern on the walnut floors compliments the angular forms of the trusses above.
