Checking in on western Bleecker Street's luxury rampage, aside from some French boutiques opened farther east, we have two newcomers to the vulnerable block between 10th and Christopher.
Jo Malone fragrances opened in October, just a few doors from beloved Manatus. If you don't know Jo Malone, they sell "an exclusive lifestyle collection for the bath, body and home. From the refined, unexpected scents to the exquisite cream and black packaging, the timeless luxury of Jo Malone has captured the senses of discerning women and men around the world."
So now you know.
And into that plywooded space next to Comptoir des Cotonniers, which I thought would be "another Marc Jacobs or Coach or Ralph Lauren," comes Freemans Sporting Club. It has just moved from the other side of Christopher.
I'm not sure what to make of their window signage--which appears to be poking fun at stores that cater to the 1%--since the 1% are the people who can actually afford to buy anything at Freemans Sporting Club (along with everything else on this end of Bleecker). But we look forward to their Deli of Endangered Meats and human flesh.
