Retail Porn: We Want to Live in Chloé's New SoHo Boutique
There's something special—something truly appealing—about Chloé's new SoHo outpost at 93 Greene Street. It's Manhattan's second Chloé store, but the first to be designed under the watch of creative director Clare Waight Keller. (The Madison Avenue location will be remodeled in the fall to better reflect her tastes.) What makes this spot so intriguing? Well, unlike most boutiques—cool or not—it's the kind of place you want to live in, not just visit.
The Grand Cafe: High Street Oxford
The first coffee house in Oxford was established circa 1650 in the same spot as The Grand Cafe and was called Angel. It's a very grand shopfront and is grade II listed, it used to be Cooper’s marmalade shop. The bus from London stops in front of this building and I did think of going in for breakfast but was keen to start exploring Oxford. I returned several hours later, the interior is disappointing and food is terrible. www.headington.org.uk/oxon/high/tour/south/084.htm Grade II…
