At Costume National, Bigger Is Better

-------

Costume National has been a Soho mainstay for years, first on Wooster Street, then on Mercer. The brand recently made its third move within the neighborhood, to a sprawling 4,000-square-foot flagship on Greene Street. The new, larger space maintains the minimal decor of its predecessors, with freestanding plinths for display—according to a longtime employee, designer Ennio Capasa considers his footwear like miniature sculpture—and graphic white walls with flashes of black. A bit of news came along with the new location: A label rep revealed that the upcoming CN campaign will star punky model Eliza Cummings in a New Wave-inspired shoot.

Costume National is now open at 150 Greene St., NYC.

Stella Takes Soho

-------

Stella McCartney was one of the Meatpacking District’s early designer supporters, but her reign in the hood has come to an end. Today, McCartney opens her new, 5,200-square-foot, two-level Soho shop on Greene Street, where she’ll offer her main line collection as well as kids’ wear and her Adidas range. (In honor of the opening, there’s also an exclusive dog leash and collar in black grosgrain, pleather, and brass on sale for $495.) The designer is in town to present her pre-fall collection today, and this evening, she’ll host a dinner in the new shop—which is only one of the two she’s bowed in 2012. Over the weekend, a new McCartney store also opened its doors in Bal Harbour.

Stella McCartney is now open at 112 Greene Street, NYC, (212) 255-1556.
