Let's check in on the site of the Yves Saint Laurent store on Mercer Street, shall we? Last month, when we listed the store as one of the most anticipated openings of 2012, the YSL website had no specifics on the launch date—just a teaser promising it would go live sometime soon. But if you look at the lower left-hand corner of the black-and-white plywood currently outside the space, you'll see a slightly more specific launch date. According to the signage, the store is due "in early 2012"—in other words, right now. Rest assured, we will be following up often over the next few weeks.
