CRYSTAL GALE: Baccarat is going big in New York, unveiling plans to open a 2,800-square-foot flagship at 635 Madison Avenue in May that will set a new retail template for the French brand. The two-story unit, designed by architect Rafael de Cárdenas, is to showcase tableware, lighting, jewelry and more.
Meanwhile, a Baccarat Hotel & Residences is slated to open off Fifth Avenue in 2014, the year the brand celebrates its 250th anniversary.
