Shop Hopping

You heard it here first: the collaboration between Atelier NY and YSL’s Stefano Pilati. Now we have more images from the much-anticipated capsule collection, due in a few short weeks. We don’t expect anything to really last on the shelves, but still, we’re calling dibs on the oversized bomber, on account of breaking the news and all… One of the highlights out of London Fashion Week comes courtesy of B Store. Following its men’s debut last season, the cult boutique is presenting its first proper women’s collection, designed by Natascha Stolle and hitting stores later this year. The Yank, Saint Martins’ grad and protégé of Peter Jensen has further articulated the store’s boxy nonchalance, but with a feminine eye… It might still feel like the dead of winter, but Marc Jacobs is already in full bloom, sprouting a veritable garden of outposts. First up, a palatial space in the Windy City at the base of the Elysian, a luxury tower that only vaguely sounds like a retirement home. But there’s nothing geriatric about the sleek art deco set-up, the perfect backdrop for spring’s frothy offerings, which, come to think of it, do have a Nurse Betty tinge. Keep an eye out for new spaces in Mexico City, Singapore and Hong Kong… A typically low-key Stella McCartney is going a bit decadent for her latest boutique, taking over an 18th-century building in Milan. Inside, zen-like ceramic tiles and recycled felt panels speak to her eco-friendly, animal-loving ways—quite the feat in a city sustained on a regular diet of animal pelts and exotic skins. One of McCartney’s largest outlets to date, the store will stock the full collection, skincare and Adidas lines… Never short of a dance partner, Opening Ceremony dropped into San Francisco for the weekend to celebrate its latest romp, a corduroy collaboration with Levi’s. The nostalgic and sonorous fabric provided the summer-time inspiration for Ryan McGinley’s campaign imagery. Available at Levi’s, SF and Openingceremony.com
