And now, the latest from Racked, covering retail and shopping from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown: There is little that one can say to describe the utter Robert Cavalli insanity at H&M today, except that the Racked photos convey the most insane retail scene we've seen in a long time. Of course, the tales from Racked's total Cavalli Saturation Coverage are pretty over the top too. For instance, the guy threatening, "Bitch if you grab that, I'm going to fucking cut you." The insane lines. Incredible.
2) Soho: What is it today with the lines? The cops were doing crowd control outside Supreme at 274 Lafayette Street in Soho, where people are waiting to get their hands on the new Nike Air Trainers TWII. Seriously.
3) Bowery: All we can say is the John Varvatos press release on taking over the CBGB's space is this week's required reading. Trust us.
4) Chinatown: Does your bank offer a 24K gold pig embedded in crystal? We didn't think so.
