Karl Lagerfeld and 'Top Chef' Contestant Open Downtown Pop-Ups
Just in time for Fashion Week, couture legend Karl Lagerfeld has opened a pop-up store on Bleecker Street in collaboration with online retailer Net-a-Porter. The sleek temporary boutique at 375 Bleecker St., which opened Jan. 27 and will close in August, showcases a palette dominated by Lagerfeld's signature black and white. Shoppers can either buy items in the store or have them shipped home using in-store iPads, according to BizBash.com.
Across town, "Top Chef" contestant Ty-Lör Boring will open a one-week pop-up restaurant in NoLita. The restaurant hosted by "culinary salon" City Grit will serve up a five-course, farm-to-table meal at 38 Prince St. at 7:30 p.m. Mon., Feb. 6, through Sat., Feb. 11, according to City Grit's website.
The "light and clean" menu for the $75 meal will include an amuse-bouche that was one of Boring's winning dishes on "Top Chef," four "Pacific-Northwest-Asian-French" courses and dessert to go, Boring told Opening Ceremony's blog.
The design shop and SoHo stalwart Moss will close its 150 Greene St. shop on Feb. 17 because of low sales and high rent, owner Murray Moss told ArtInfo.com. The shop, which has been a design-world favorite for nearly 20 years, has become a "free museum," Moss said. The good news is that the store plans to relocate.
"Moss is MOVING, not closing," a posting on the shop's blog said. "We're going to an office/showroom in Midtown." The exact location will be announced soon, the note added.
