When storeowner Kristi Paras announced she'd be closing the last remaining Zachary's Smile in Manhattan, she did so while also mentioning she had a new, upcoming project in the works. Over the weekend, New York Magazine reported on what that is.
The former Zachary's Smile on Greenwich Avenue will become a Personnel of New York on May 16th, a boutique that "specializes in men's and women's designers from both coasts," including brands like the cheeky Dusen Dusen, Mara Hoffman, Generic Man and California's Industry of All Nations.
