The June/July issue of Details sheds some light on the special new J. Crew men’s store in TriBeCa. So far we know that the space –an old liquor store on West Broadway –is spectacular and sort of Edward Hopper-esq. What we learned from the Details article is even more exciting. One of the ACL’s idols Mr. Andy Spade and his new creative firm Partners & Spade, has been retained to add his retail genius into the mix. This makes me think that we could have an American interpretation of Paul Smith on our hands. I can’t wait to get a first hand look at this store and I am excited to be able to finally buy Birdwell Britches in person.
