New signs in the the windows of 55 Greene Street inform anyone strolling through Soho that chic, laid-back French boutique Isabel Marant will be opening in April. Actually, what they say is this: "Mr Hatman and his brothers at work" and "Mr Hatman is proud to announce you the opening of the first Isabel Marant store in NYC." Mr Hatman's English might be slightly fractured, but Marant has been using him as a spokesperson for a while now, so it's only natural that she would have brought him to New York.
