Today's the day that Michael Stars opens its doors in New York City—albeit temporarily. The California-based brand that you were probably obsessed with in middle school has finally established a pop-up shop at 32 Gansevoort Street, where most of its 2,000 square feet will be dedicated to its latest, NYC-inspired womenswear collection.
Boyfriends, husbands, brothers et al. should come along too to check out the new menswear offerings, plus bags from the likes of Will Leather Goods; denim from DL1961 will also be available for both sexes. This is part of a major "east coast push," according to the brand (whose only tri-state area store is in East Hampton)—let's just hope their moment hasn't passed.
