We're still one month away from the debut of New York's second & Other Stories store —this time in midtown, right next door to COS — but the H&M-owned brand is already on to the next one. In an article about the Fifth Avenue store, WWD reports that it'll debut at the World Trade Center shopping hub at some point in the future, and we're assuming that means the Westfield shopping hub. The store size and an opening date (the whole project is delayed right now) has not been set.
But in the meantime, there's Soho, plus 9,700 square feet on two floors overlooking Fifth Avenue filled with clothes, shoes, handbags, jewelry, and beauty products to look forward to on October 30th. An opening date for its neighbor
still hasn't been confirmed [Update: COS is opening even sooner!]. Now we're left to wonder whether COS will head all the way downtown, too, where H&M is rumored to be going as well.
