Kurt Geiger, a London-based shoe brand, doesn't have an outpost in New York City yet, but all that will soon change once it moves into the empty storefront at 375 Bleecker Street. Most recently, the space was occupied by the Karl by Karl Lagerfeld collaboration (including the time it opened with clothes, and without), but before that, it was home to Tommy Hilfiger.
For a bit of background information, the Shophound writes: "Not unlike the Duchess of Cambridge's favorite L.K. Bennett, the brand is upscale but not irrationally expensive, so it makes sense to find it there as more and more contemporary labels find their way to the West Village." It also seems like the shop will include a plethora of options; on the brand's website, the women's bestsellers category includes everything from basic riding boots to studded sneakers.
