New Yorkers probably know Haute Hippie best from national chains like Saks and online retailers like Shopbop. But the line was founded in a Manhattan apartment, and later this month it will be returning to its roots with a Nolita store. Set to open on January 27, the space is located at 9 Prince Street between Elizabeth and Bowery. That's the former home of venerable clothing store Henry Lehr, meaning this news debunks last week's rumor that Lehr's daughter's boyfriend might be turning the spot into a coffee shop.
This is the
third fourth brick-and-mortar store for the high-end boho line, which also has locations in Tokyo and Southhampton. Above, check out a shot of the Hamptons store plus some images from the spring 2012 lookbook.
Update: Add Aspen to the list of already-open Haute Hippie stores. The brand launched there in collaboration with Colorado label Gorsuch in late December.
