NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sam Edelman is opening its second New York City location today at Westfield World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan. The 2,046-square-foot space is the 12th store for the brand, concluding a major retail rollout which opened seven Sam Edelman doors across the country this year.

Designed by Dagnall Folger of Architecture + Information, the store stays true to the Sam Edelman aesthetic with a mix of materials such as reclaimed wood and raw concrete with rose-colored brass and black leather. Hints of the brand’s signature shade of green provide a pop of color, and vintage furniture pieces—curated by Sam Edelman himself—are mixed throughout for a personal touch. The full Sam Edelman assortment will be displayed in custom-designed fixtures.

“I was born and raised in New York and am proud to be opening our second Manhattan location as part of the exciting retail experience that Westfield is bringing to downtown. It’s another step towards the great revival of the World Trade Center,” said Sam Edelman, designer, founder and division president for the Sam Edelman division of Caleres.
