Otto Tootsi Plohound's recently vacated space on Lafayette Street has a new tenant: Argentinian clothing brand Etiqueta Negra. "Our research found scant information about Etiqueta Negra, which means simply "Black Label". It appears to be a luxury brand with close ties to the Polo world. That's Polo meaning a sport involving men on horses, not Ralph Lauren. The sport is huge in Argentina, though this brand appears to encompass a full lifestyle collection with a elegant edge."
