NEW YORK — Scoop, the hip specialty chain, on Monday will open a Scoop Street denim shop inside its Third Avenue and 73rd Street location, which is called What’s the Scoop.
In addition, "we’ll be opening a [free-standing] store that will be very similar to Scoop Street, for casual men’s and women’s wear, in November," said Stefani Greenfield, cofounder of Scoop. She declined to specify the location, awaiting conclusion of lease negotiations.
Greenfield said Scoop Street could become a free-standing denim concept or housed inside existing stores. She said the 500-square-foot Scoop Street space on 73rd Street was used for sale merchandise. Scoop Street has its own entrance, two full-time jeans experts, denim and related sportswear and accessories, and the same loft-like minimalist aesthetic as its sister locations, but with a blue poxy floor giving it a sense of its own space.
Greenfield said Scoop does over $1,500 in sales per square foot. "We turn our merchandise over 10 percent each week. Denim will be in the same range or better. It’s one of our best-selling classifications, but it’s a lower price point. The key to turning jeans fast is not only having the right styles and washes, but owning the sizes. We sell from a 24-inch waist to a 32-inch waist."
Scoop’s core denim lines are Seven; Paper, Denim & Cloth, Earl Jeans, Juicy Couture, Joe’s Jeans, Levi Strauss and Joie. The store also sells fashion-oriented jeans labels such as Habitual, Henry Duarte and Marc.
What’s the Scoop is casual sportswear and accessories driven. Next door is Scoop NYC, which sells designer collections such as Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors. And adjacent to that is the former Scoop Street, which becomes Scoop Men’s on Aug. 13. Scoop also has stores in East Hampton and Greenvale, Long Island, SoHo and Miami.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
