The latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown: The massive sign covering 1435 Broadway for the past three years, which proudly proclaimed that the building would one day contain the "future world headquarters" of Canadian fashion designer Peter Nygard, has finally come down?and holy cow, NYGARD! Is this guy a super villain or something?
2) The Clic Gallery is not-so-slowly taking over Soho, and will soon be dispensign books and photographs from a trio of locations. Joining the Lafayette location is a Clic at 424 Broome Street (between Crosby and Lafayette) and another at Broome and Centre Street. Writes Racked, "The three shops are situated in an area relatively overlooked by retail, making them something akin to a Clic clique."
3) FiDi: Was The City socialista Olivia Palermo spotted shopping at the Strawberry's store at Worth and Broadway? Probably not, but it's a funny mental image. Next we'll hear that Whitney was flipping through the racks at the Rainbow in Stuy Town.
