SOHO—Cool Hunting gets a good look at Here/Nau/NYC, the pop-up shop so sustainable it's made primarily out of garbage ("upcycled materials," in the parlance of our times.) The space, which opens at 69 Mercer Street on Thursday, sounds amazing, with white walls and floor and exposed wood beams that showcase the unusual materials to their best advantage. Just look at that web of branches on the ceiling! When the shop finally opens, expect to see merchandise from Timberland, Malin + Goetz, and Loomstate, plus a miniature coffee shop and all sorts of live events. [Cool Hunting; Previously]
UPPER EAST SIDE—Lisa Perry recently announced her big move to the Upper East Side. The designer's flagship store is slated for a mid-November opening on Madison Avenue between 76th and 77th Streets. Confessing recently to WWD that she's "more of a shop girl" who loves interacting with customers, Perry looks forward to transforming the former Citibank space into a design and art studio (she even plans to keep the vault and glass offices). The boutique will also feature the launch of her lower-priced collection, Lisa Perry Play, in the spring.—Phillip Picardi [WWD, subscription req'd; Previously]
