Phipps Plaza has stores in the mall not found elsewhere in the city. Phipps and Lenox Square are both owned by Simon, so their owner sees fit to make sure that each mall is in its own niche. Lenox is more of a designer showcase, featuring concept stores from major designers and only recently has the mall turned completely upscale. Phipps, in contrast, holds to its status as New York, Jr. with locations of exclusive stores such as Barney New York and Tiffany's among its tenant roster. Armani, Gucci and Versace also are found among the clothing stores in the mall. A $1000 shirt can definitely be found in this mall.
