If this isn't the busiest week of Bleecker Street swapouts then we don't know what is. Marc Jacobs has taken a cue from Ralph Lauren and reorganized his Bleecker Street stores yet again. The Shophound reports that both the men's store and the Little Marc children's store have moved back to their original locations, and the women's accessories store now inhabits the former men's store. But fear not: Bookmarc has remained untouched.
So why all the shuffling? The Shophound ponders that maybe Jacobs has just outgrown Bleecker Street, pointing out that the Marc Jacobs collection store on Mercer is much more "loftlike." For a guy whose been pretty busy lately, what with receiving that Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA and getting bashed by the Times, it's a wonder he was able to fit in reconfiguring his entire West Village monopoly.
