MIDTOWN—The former Gucci store at 685 Fifth Avenue and 54th Street has emerged from its cocoon of plywood and will soon become Diesel's NYC flagship. First, though, a lot of limestone has to come down. A tipster sent in this shot of the facade being demolished, writing "Zoom in for battered Gucci logo." [Racked Inbox]
WILLIAMSBURG—Get excited: Starting today, A.P.C. is selling last fall and summer's very French, very cute merchandise for 50% off at their Surplus annex at 33 Grand Street between Kent and Wythe. The sale opens at 1pm and closes at 7pm, meaning this would be a excellent week to be one of those Williamsburg-based freelancers who always seem to be having lunch at Dumont on random weekday afternoons.
