On top of running approximately eight hundred different projects, Raf Simons is foraying into the all-consuming world of New York real estate. WWD reports that his company's CEO is in town this week "in search of a site for a future store and to promote the brand’s new focus on the United States."

Also in the works, by the way: The company's first US ad campaign.
