KOREAN ADDITION: Seoul-based designer Lie Sang Bong in October will open his first boutique in New York’s Meatpacking District. The 2,000-square-foot space, at 30 Gansevoort Street, will offer both the LIE SANGBONG and LIE collections of women’s ready-to-wear and accessories, as well as lifestyle merchandise from other brands handpicked by the designer.
Lie has been raising his profile in New York recently. After a decade in Paris, he started showing at New York Fashion Week last season. His spring show is scheduled at The Salon at Lincoln Center on Sept. 6.
