Best known for draping Hamptonites in luxe cashmeres (he has stores in East Hampton and Southampton), Christopher Fischer opens a Soho outpost on November 24 (80 Wooster St., near Spring St.; 212-965-9009). The minimalist space will showcase women’s, men’s, accessories, and home collections, plus the new “Little Christopher Fischer” baby line. Look out for Snowflake appliqué gloves ($120), reversible long-sleeve argyle crewnecks ($375), and pint-size wrap sweaters for tots ($119)—all in cashmere, of course.
After bliss opens its biggest spa to date, maybe that notorious waiting list will become shorter. Appointments can be booked now for the December 11 debut of a 23,000-square-foot space (double the size of bliss Soho) at the W New York (541 Lexington Ave., near 49th St.; 212-219-8970). If you can’t wait till then, a retail area opens on November 22, complete with a manicure and pedicure station whose booths are equipped with flat-screen TVs and personal headphones.
Other noteworthy openings: On November 15, Fragments’ ritzy uptown space (997 Madison Ave., near 77th St.; 212-537-5000) showcases exclusive pieces from Miguel Ases, Joseph Murray, and Shaill Jhaveri. And MoMA’s store inside the museum will reopen November 20, now with design objects as well as books (11 W. 53rd St., near Fifth Ave.; 212-708-9700).
