Womenswear boutique Otte is gearing up to open two more stores, which will bring the total count to six. A Nolita location is coming at the end of the month, and according to WWD, it'll focus on designer/storeowner Kay Lee's line.
Another shop is planned for Brooklyn, which is where Lee opened her first store back in 1999. (It was in Williamsburg, and it closed in 2009.) The article doesn't mention which neighborhood she's headed to now, though Williamsburg would make total sense—especially with the recent boom of retailers signing leases, like Sandro, Urban Outfitters, and Gant Rugger.
