And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Flatiron: The Brooks Brothers concept store is now open in the former Lord & Taylor building, going for a college student/young professional demographic. In design and layout, this translates to an "elegant library/lounge" look and a display of sportswear instead of shirts and ties.
2) Midtown: Gucci has a children's boutique on Fifth Avenue, and it sells fur coats for kids.
3) Midtown West: So much for the rumors of a Christian Louboutin sale today. It isn't happening.
