And now, the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown: Racked has a look inside the crazy-huge Armani store at 717 Fifth. All the lines under one room, plus "some sort of restaurant/bar, flower shop, candy shop and beauty area in the same building."
2) East Village: The Chocolate Bar, forced from its Eighth Avenue storefront, has found a new home in at 127 East 7th Street, between First and Ave A. Opening day is May 3rd.
3) Central Village: There is joy at 48 Bond as hair maven Eva Scrivo has opened her second full-service salon at 50 Bond. Racked calls the 3,000-square-foot space "a stunner" and has full photo gallery treatment.
4) Soho: It's too late to catch the Kate Bosworth CK billboard on Houston Street as it's been replaced by an image of model Ali Stephens wearing sunglasses. So tame, but perhaps some Eva Mendes lingerie shots soon?
