Legacy West in Plano, open since 2017, is stepping up its retail with the addition of several luxury brands including a Gucci boutique, the fourth in Texas for the fashion house. The marble facade and the massive glass doors of the shop give way to a contemporary interior softened by velvet seating, beautiful wall finishes and vintage rugs throughout. The quietly luxe interior complements the discrete displays of goods for men and women including accessories, eyewear, handbags, shoes, leather goods and luggage. Gucci is located across from Legacy Hall. Coming later this spring and summer are Chanel Beauty, Tiffany & Co., Tory Burch and Louis Vuitton. Already making their home in Plano are Bonobos, Peloton and Tesla. See more openings online.

The Market at Ridglea
Amanda Wear has turned a drab former office building in west Fort Worth into a destination for those who love to support small businesses and shop local. The founder of Cowtown Couture — Wear formerly worked in surgical sales — has compiled a lengthy list of vendors to fill the 6,700-square-foot cooperative space near Ridglea Country Club. Along with clothing, accessories, housewares, plants and works by artisans, there will be grab-and-go food options and beverages, plus a tea bar. “The tenant list filled up in two weeks,” says Wear, who wants to make retail space affordable for small businesses, including her own. We think she has succeeded. The bonus? Fort Worth artist Kristen Soble’s Dolly Parton mural. Selfies are welcome.
