Want This: Camper Parks Uptown

Camper shoes. We want them all.

CAMPED OUT: Three things to love about the new Camper outpost, the Spanish shoe brand’s second NYC address: One, the place is green to the hilt (the shoe displays? made from recycled shoe boxes). Two, white walls actually invite clever graffiti and other recording of inspired thoughts (with the red pens provided). And three, the footwear for men, women and kids that’s as witty and stylish as it is driven by comfort. Madison Avenue at 59th Street; 212-339-88600. More at camper.com.

JACKED UP: When’s the last time you were tippling away at L.E.S. bar Home Sweet Home and wondered, wouldn’t it be cool if Jack White opened a record store upstairs? This coming Thursday and Friday, the Stripe’s own Third Man Records label is set to open a two-day pop-up. You’ll be able to score the debut from his new band the Dead Weather, plus Third Man music and merch galore, all in brick and mortar form. How analog. 131 Chrystie Street at Broome Street.

X MARCS THE SPOT: At some point, they’re just going to rename Bleecker Street Marc Jacobs Street, right? Looks like the designer’s sixth retail venue on the street – purportedly something lifestyle-y – will be housed in the current Biography Book Shop (which is moving just down the street). More details at Racked.
