Fashion Geek has a peek inside new East Village boutique Cry Wolf, which is officially opening at 111 St Marks Place on April 3rd. "Cry Wolf is the rare store that carries chic, cooler-than-thou clothing but still maintains a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. That's mostly due to the owners, a husband-and-wife team consisting of Abiri Ward and Nina Wolff, whose welcoming demeanors are a nice break from the aloof attitudes that plague this city's boutiques...The store carries up-and-coming and established men's and women's designers including Unruly Heir, Nudie Jeans, Junk de Luxe and Morphine Generation, to name a few. The sneaker selection is also something special: Shoes from Gram and Clae are unique without resorting to peacock-like displays of wild color." [Fashion Geek]
