This week, Jon Caramanica heads to the newly-opened Lanvin's men's store on Madison Avenue. In addition to a silk tracksuit, one of the things he thoroughly enjoyed was his fitting room: "It is large and intimate, with a giant mirror on one wall. You could get comfortable in there. You might be inclined to take some selfies. And why wouldn't you: almost everything in the store feels like a tremendous costume you could still conceivably wear out into the street." [NYT]
