Against the odds, a new leather vendor just moved to the fading Orchard Street “district.” It’s called DaRucci, and they hope to make a mark inside the boutique at 145 Orchard. The new vendor setup became operational earlier this week.
DaRucci specializes in fine leathers, furs, and accessories. Business owner Zohaib Rizvi tells us that their goal is to “help revitalize the neighborhood by bringing an upscale garment boutique” to Hell Square. That’s a nice sound byte, yet extremely difficult to accomplish. From an aesthetic perspective, though, it seems like a “less stuffy” take on the longtime vendors that remain on the block.
DaRucci is a retail subsidiary of PG Leather in New Jersey. The parent company supplies all the goods to the store, but also to other vendors in the vicinity under “private labeling” (items that can be re-branded).
This particular store at 145 Orchard was previously vacant for a super-long stretch. No business has operated here since Id America cell accessory shop called it quits in January 2013.
