The Reed Krakoff store set to open in the former Miu Miu space on Madison Avenue remains tightly under wraps, but now we've got an official launch date: Thursday, August 19. The storefront is still boarded up with signs announcing the fall 2010 opening and what little activity can be seen amounted to some hammering from behind the walls. From our snooping, we deduced that the interior is finished and they are simply doing some final touches before the upcoming reveal. We can definitively say the store should be open just in time for you to get your hands on some luxe fall wardrobe staples.—Rachel Traub
