Leave it to Rag & Bone to take a once meat factory and turn its industrial setting into a splurge-inspiring mega store. Yes, the beloved label has just added another brick and mortar to its roster of NYC spots. And this time the meatpacking location is bigger, better, and more artistic than ever. The "General Store" is the first of its kind for the brand, and boasts custom and antique furniture sourced from the 1920s, Jack's Stir Brew Coffee (voted America's top brew!), and art on the walls (there's currently an exhibition from the Garis & Hahn gallery). Says managing partner David Neville, "It will serve as our official employee store and a place where we can conduct meetings, and of course, it's also open to the public... we're thrilled." Us too, David, us too. Just don't be confused by the "Dave's Quality Veal" sign that still hangs in the front the new MPD mainstay.
Rag & Bone, 425 West 13th Street (at Washington Street); 212-249-3331.
