We've been paying so much attention to Manhattan's French retail invasion this past year that we almost forgot about the Swedes. Over the summer, Acne opened an impressive new flagship at 33 Greene Street, and soon, that'll be joined by another native retailer: Gudrun Sjoden.
The Post reports that the brand has signed a lease for a 3,600-square-foot spot at 50 Greene Street, and that they're just about ready to open. Once they do, expect to find things like earthy tunics and separates inspired by Scandinavian folk art hanging on the walls.
