John Varvatos opened his new store in style. The designer unveiled his Detroit flagship this past week, featuring notable attendees like supermodel Kate Upton and a special live performance by rock legend Alice Cooper, who is from the city.

“Detroit is well past its tipping point, and I’m thrilled to be playing a role in the city’s ongoing transformation,” Varvatos said. The designer is also set to show at New York’s first men’s fashion week in July, a sort of homecoming for the designer, who usually presents his collections in Milan. “We’ll start making plans for the show starting in May,” Varvatos said. “That’s always fun and exciting.”
