In September, Nick Wooster—menswear fashion director, advisor, consultant, and "sartorial badass"—bought a partnership slice of Atrium, with the idea rename the Noho and Brooklyn boutiques as Atrium Wooster.
Today, WWD reports that will never happen. "At the time [of the deal], the building in which Atrium is housed on Broadway and Bleecker Street was under scaffolding. The plan was to re-brand the store as Atrium Wooster when the renovation was completed. The scaffolding has been removed, but the name was not changed."
Wooster confirmed to the paper that he's no longer affiliated with Atrium, and his Twitter bio bills him as a Free Agent. Period. Not too long ago, he struck up a deal and then left a position at JCPenney after a similar short timeframe.
