The latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Soho: Shirtless surfer running amok in Soho? It can only mean one thing: the impending arrival of Abercrombie & Fitch spin-off store Hollister to the below-Houston region. Can Sohoites forgive the chain for painting over the famed DKNY mural?
2) Chelsea: The very hyped pop-up shop from Comme des Garçons' BLACK label has opened beneath the High Line. Step inside, won't you?
3) Upper East Side: When is a picture worth a thousand words? When it's of Rebecca, whose Street Scenes feature today has turned (in the comments) into an assault on everything the Upper East Side holds dear, including Starbucks, elliptical machines and the Dave Matthews Band.
