Jil Sander is shy. The store's staff closed the blinds on us today when we tried to grab a photo of the interior of their new Howard Street store, located within a high-heel's throw of Opening Ceremony. No matter—the glassy front doors afforded a full-on glimpse of the minimalist interior stocked with bot-like mannequins dressed in the label's finest neutral-toned attire. The scene there this afternoon seemed calm but busy, as workers bustled around putting the finishing touches on the place in lieu of a planned full reveal at tonight's Raf Simons-hosted opening party. You can be sure that all ladders and construction equipment will be removed from the scene before that begins.
