And now, the latest from Racked NY, shopping and retail from the sidewalks up...
1) Williamsburg: Remember that Whole Foods that's been coming to Williamsburg for...forever? Well, it has a new batch of renderings (via Brownstoner)! Formerly a glass box design, it looks like the store has decided to go a little more brick-and-mortar. The North 4th Street and Bedford Avenue location won't be open any sooner than end-of-year.
2) Everywhere: It's fashion week, which means, despite the cold, the streets are crawling with the (next) season's hottest fashions. From inappropriate shoes, to bare legs, to capes, to Bane-reminiscent hat/face masks, this gallery takes a look at just a little bit of the street style that New York fashion week is coaxing out.
3) Everywhere: This NYFW, BdB has reaffirmed his commitment to the fashion industry as a creator of opportunity, a source of innovation, and an outlet for hard work. Earlier, de Blasio appointed Alicia Glen, his deputy mayor for housing and economic development, as his liaison to the fashion industry.
