And now, the latest from Racked NY, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) MePa: We're liking the interiors of Owen, a new Meatpacking District boutique decorated with 25,000 paper bags. A seven-worker crew needed nine days to complete the Jeremy Barbour design.
2) UES: Too hot out to think about holiday windows? Never! Barneys is already thinking about how to beat last year's Lady Gaga theme. And Barneys is thinking Disney.
