And now, the latest from Racked NY, shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Midtown/Midtown West: MoMA is coming out with an affordable new collection of New York City-made items that hits shelves May 15. The potentially perfect presents include Brooklyn toile wallpaper (pictured) and a watch produced via 3D printer.
2) Flatiron District: This week in streetside makeovers... along that lovely shopping-filled stretch of Lower Fifth, C. Wonder, Zara, and Club Monaco are all getting facelifts.
3) Koreatown-ish: Elite event planner Jung Lee has opened her first home goods store, and it's chock full of products both high and low ($95 beach towels and $21 goblets). Plus, there's a giant indoor swing. That's a gamechanger.
4) Summertime Everywhere: Bathing suit season can be a headache, but not with this handy list of 13 places to buy one and 10 artful one-pieces for the covered-up look. Remember, exposure attracts attention?an H&M ad of Beyonce in a bikini is stirring up controversy on the Lower East Side, and Stuy Town residents are complaining about side boob-showing sunbathers. Be careful out there.
