A spate of new stores are timing their arrival to capture the post-holiday gift-return crowd. Among them is Stella McCartney (above), relocating from the meatpacking district to a two-story, 5,200-square-foot loft with sculptural brass racks and herringbone-patterned floors in Soho (112 Greene St., nr. Prince St.; 212-255-1556). Nearby, Spanish footwear brand Camper tapped renowned Japanese architect Shigeru Ban (best known locally for the Metal Shutter House condos in West Chelsea) for its third local boutique. Ban’s design includes a vertical garden of 32 aspidistra plants and perception-bending cubby shelves filled with footwear collaborations with fashion names like Bernhard Willhelm and Romain Kremer. And on January 9, 97-year-old eyewear brand Moscot will make its first foray into the designer-glasses hotbed of brownstone Brooklyn (159 Court St., nr. Pacific St., Cobble Hill; 212-647-1550). The store will include an on-site optometrist, loads of vintage-inspired acetate frames, and antique photos, letters, and knickknacks from the Moscot family archive on the walls.
