SEAPORT DISTRICT—Menswear brand Defend Brooklyn is the latest to head downtown to set up shop in the South Street Seaport (aka the "Seaport District"), according to Tribeca Citizen. Next month, the shop will make its debut at 193 Front Street, joining stylish neighbors like Northern Grade, William Okpo, and Brother Vellies.
COBBLE HILL—Handbag maven Clare Vivier looks to be opening a new location in Brooklyn, according to two job listings posted by Fashionista (one is for a "monogram specialist"). The brand has a Manhattan store at 239 Elizabeth Street.
NOHO—Haircuts and manicures aren't the hot ticket items at John Barrett's Bond Street salon, its first standalone NYC location outside of Bergdorf Goodman — accessories price tags boasting as many as five digits are. Things like Tom Ford fragrances, Assouline coffee table books, and vintage Rolex watches are attracting attention, CEO Jim Hedges told WWD of the company's aim to encourage customer interaction "with things they don't normally get in a beauty environment."
SOHO—Further proof that it's just too damn expensive in Soho? According to Page Six, the Chanel store at 139 Spring Street just sold for a record-breaking $112 million, which breaks down to nearly $25,000 per square foot. "Spring Street is one of the most expensive and coveted retail addresses in New York City," said a real estate principal involved in the deal. "The value of the property has been greatly enhanced by the prestigious fashion house of Chanel."
