Hurricane Sandy's reverberations are still being felt all over the New York area, including hard hit hub for art and fashion, Chelsea. For example, damages to the historic Balenciaga NY flagship store resulted in its temporary closure.
Today's timely opening of Seasonal Store SoHo at 138 Wooster Street will help to keep heads high. And the silver lining to this dreary cloud, surely, is the eventual establishment of a major Balenciaga presence in SoHo, which will culminate in the opening of the new flagship store on Mercer Street next year. How convenient for V (11 Mercer Street, if you didn't know)!
The Balenciaga Seasonal Store SoHo opens with Pre-Spring 2013 and carries all Balenciaga collections.
