NorthPark is Madewell

Mickey Drexler, the man who made the Gap (and Banana Republic) a household name and resurrected J. Crew from its punch line status, is bringing his newest venture to Dallas before anywhere else: Madewell, which sounds just like...uh...the Gap and Banana Republic and J. Crew and every other store that sells under-a-hundy chinos and jeanos. (J. Crew insists that ain't the case, and given the amount of ink given this story today, biz folks apparently think Madewell's debut is a big deal.) It's scheduled to open--where else?--in NorthPark Center in August. --Robert Wilonsky
