Operations Opens in SoHo


The clothes hang from meat hooks and the fitting rooms are industrial-size freezers, but the details on the clothes are the real draw at Operations (60 Mercer St., at Broome St.; 212-334-4950). The red trucker jackets with black shoulder and elbow patches ($225), gas-mask bags with antiqued leather and silk-screening ($77), and masonry pants with triple-needle stitching ($255) are a glam approach to the workwear aesthetic.

On March 21, high-end scent-maker L’Artisan Parfumeur is scheduled to open its first freestanding U.S. location (68 Thompson St., nr. Spring St.; 212-334-1500). The nature-inspired scents (in unusual combinations like almond milk, fig, and sandalwood) have only been in a few luxe stores until now, but this minuscule shop has the entire line (50-ml. eau de toilette starts at $75).

Andrianna Shamaris’s primitive home furnishings, which have an arty following in California, have come to the East Coast (121 Greene St., nr. Prince St.; 212-388-9898). Shamaris is known for retooling old pieces from exotic locales; here, she has 150-year-old coconut shells converted into bowls ($135 to $165) and containers made from palm-tree trunks ($590). There are also clothes, like a shirt made from a Balinese ceremonial sarong ($78), and paintings by Greg Lauren.

And Puma discreetly opened another 2,000-square-foot location to showcase its higher-end labels Mihara, 96 Hours by Neil Barrett, and Nuala (421 W. 14th St., nr. Tenth Ave.; 212-206-0109).
