Just in case you missed it in the fine print of yesterday's WWD, British designer Matthew Williamson, who only just got his first NYC store in the Meatpacking District barely one year ago, will open another pop-up space across the street next month.

But just wait a sec, because the Matthew Williamson shop will only be around from May 12 to 16 on West 14th Street, as it celebrates the launch of Belvedere vodka's new pink grapefruit flavor and?we're assuming?gets Hamptons-bound ladies in the mood to buy some brightly patterned kaftans. It's one kaftan in particular, actually; a Matthew Williamson for Belvedere vodka $1,540 kaftan.

The item will only be available at Williamson's NY and London stores, and apparently Leigh Lezark already has hers, because she'll be modeling it as a DJ at some of the events held in the space.
