Sandro's first store in Williamsburg opened this month on N. 6th Street between Kent and Wythe Avenues. According to WWD, the store has a heavy focus on men's: though that collection makes up an even 50% off the offerings, it's merchandised in the front of the store and in the windows.
That may have a little something to do with Ilan Chétrite, the brand's menswear designer and son to cofounder and creative director Evelyne Chétrite—he was "instrumental in choosing the Williamsburg location." The store will soon be joined by Gant Rugger, which opens next month.
