Changes are in the offing at venerable Highland Park Village, after confirmation last week that Williams-Sonoma will close its store there. The ultra-luxe complex is reportedly making the move to welcome even higher-end stores than the cook's nook—which is all coming on the heels of the heralded debuts of Dior, Saint Laurent Paris and Alexander McQueen there last year.
