DECKED OUT: Marlies Dekkers, the upscale Dutch lingerie brand whose sexy bras and undies are being bandied about by Britney Spears in her Circus Tour, closed its first boutique in the U.S. in early April at the Plaza Retail Collection in Manhattan. Dekkers, which opened the 1,400-square-foot shop at The Plaza in November, joins the exit of Manrico cashmere, whose former 850-square-foot spot will be occupied by Douglas Hannant this fall. Myrthe van Haren, a communications director for the Dekkers firm, said, “There was no traffic. It was always dead because there was no marketing or signage to bring people in. There were all of these odd jewelry, accessories and chocolate stores. If Marc Jacobs had a store there, it would have made a difference. We are now looking to open a boutique in SoHo and the collection will be launched at Bergdorf Goodman on May 1.”
