And now the latest from Racked, covering shopping and retail from the sidewalks up.
1) Williamsburg: There are now some very cool bags available in the Burg at 555 Metropolitan between Union and Lorimer. The new tenant of the space is a handbag company named Anavaa Kisasa ("she dresses in fashion" in Swahili). Racked believes it has a chance to thrive.
2) All Around: For those who weren't invited to the New York City preview of Comme des Garçons for H&M, the retailer has rolled out an online interactive lookbook of the collection, in stores November 13th. Click around the photo gallery for a look.
