EVERYTHING ESPLANADE

In a world of mass production and market saturation, finding a diamond in the rough is, well, like finding a diamond in the rough! But just within the walls of the Esplanade shopping center, you will discover a gem of a jewelry boutique. Rarity and purity are two promised qualities you will encounter in the jewelry display cabinets of Irene Lummertz.

In the commercial rush to introduce the shiniest thing to the market, novelty is sold as beauty. The market prioritizes manufacturing a kind of beauty rather than discovering beauty itself. Not so for Irene Lummertz. Each of her pieces are truly organic, ne...

“The people recognize themselves in their commodities; they find their soul in their automobile, hi-fi set, split-level home, kitchen equipment.”

These words were spoken by a man who understood what luxury branding really offers.

So, I’d like to share one of my favorite Cinderella stories with you that live on Worth Avenue, and it happens to be about Louis Vuitton, one of my favorite designers.

Lifestyle is tied to destination.

As your fashion, beauty and lifestyle specialist at the Esplanade I’ve learned that one’s lifestyle is anchored by their surroundings. 

In several of his paintings, Renoir captured a way of life by the sea. Leisure, coupled with luxury was the lifestyle that manifested as La Belle Époque. A time where a stroll down the breezy promenade was an avenue to see and be seen.We believe you will experience all of this and more at the Esplanade.

In his photo album, A Wonderful Time, there wasn’t a movie star, a member of the Social Register, or a titled European who escaped famed...
