NEW YORK — Sir Philip Green doesn’t want to take over the U.S.— he just wants a piece of the action.
Green, owner of Topshop/Topman, one of the U.K.’s hottest retailers, was in New York last week to generate some buzz for the company’s first store, slated to open at 478 Broadway at Broome in Soho in mid-October.
One quarter of the 40,000-square-foot store will be devoted to Topman, the men’s wear component. It will include all of the brand’s offerings, starting with the trendy mainline collection and including Topman Design, its premium runway line that pushes trends even harder. Collaborations with up-and-coming designers will be featured in the Lens department, previously exclusive to the Topshop flagship store in London’s Oxford Circus and online.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
