And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Everywhere: Thank God there won't be a court case about American Apparel founder Dov Charney holding meetings in his underwear and using vulgar language about women. The language was only "part of the creative process" and the underwear was modeling.
2) FiDi: There is more interesting information to report about the possibility of Barney's coming downtown and it has to do with Philippe Stark.
3) Park Slope: Everyone's favorite Brooklyn neighborhood is getting a new yoga studio and a new shoe store.
4) Red Hook: There are many, many more details on Racked about the warm and fuzzy Ikea approach to hiring that includes "a flexible workplace that emphasizes a work/life balance and provides professional opportunities to people from all life situations."
