MEATPACKING—The Ted Baker store in Meatpacking is also pretty excited about the Olympics. Their windows currently feature mannequins wearing gold medals, and they've even created a special clothing line inspired by the occasion. Plus, if you make a purchase of $150 or more, you'll receive a special "London Born and Bred" tote while supplies last. [RackedWire]
SOHO—Tomorrow at 12pm on the corner of Mercer and Princes Streets, Johnny Cupcakes and Junk Food Clothing will make their first stop on the national Tastemakers Truck Tour. If you just so happen to be there, you'll be able to partake in some free ice cream, and have the opportunity to shop the collaborative line of apparel. In each city, shoppers will also have the chance to purchase a unique "flavor"—a limited-edition product sold in a collectable ice cream-inspired packaging. [RackedWire]
