The last few months have brought several new stores to the trendy Soho neighborhood. The American Eagle Outfitters flagship store at 599 Broadway opened Nov. 9. A week earlier, the Kardashian sisters opened a new clothing boutique called Dash at 119 Spring Street. More than 20 stores have recently opened up in the area, from indie boutiques like Wendy Nichol at 147 Sullivan Street and Realm at 98 Greene Street, to global brands like Chanel, which renovated its location at 139 Spring Street, Moncler at 90 Prince Street and AllSaints Spitalfields at 512 Broadway. “There’s a new energy in the neighborhood,” said Julie Haus, a former magazine editor turned runway designer who opened her first boutique on 458 Broome Street in September. “Things tend to be moving toward Canal. There are lots of other independent designers coming in. The spaces here lend themselves to the gallery-style look and feel, which we love.” [NYT]
