NEW YORK — When Janice Levin-Krok learned Poleci's flagship on West 14th Street would have to relocate because the landlord wanted to redevelop the building, the creative director of the Los Angeles-based contemporary brand saw it as an opportunity to redefine its retail image and develop a new store prototype.
Poleci's 5,000-square-foot flagship at 32 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District, which opened earlier this month, shows the results of Levin-Krok's new ideas. It's expected to do more than $2 million in sales in its first year.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
