The latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: You may have heard something about a little UK store named TopShop opening its first U.S. location on Broadway next week. And when that store opens, the facade will look like the above. Not bad. No Nygard, but not bad.
2) Chelsea: Was the lighter-than-usual turnout at the big Hermès sale a result of these harsh economic times? Perhaps. Or maybe the market for $1,770 snakeskin heels just isn't as widespread as thought.
3) NYC: You burned last year's bonus on a new FiDi condo, and now comes the hard part. Where do you go to furnish the ultimate bachelor pad? Better yet, what are the "5 sexiest places for a bachelor to shop?" Racked readers let you know!
