MOLESKINE GROWS: As part of its global retail expansion, Moleskine, the company favored by many for its chic and functional notebooks, is adding two more U.S. units: 436 West Broadway in SoHo, and at 1,200 Morris Tpke., at the Short Hills Mall in Short Hills, N.J.

The Manhattan location, its second here after one at the Time Warner Center, is now open, while Short Hills is slated to start operating on Friday.

The 669 Square foot SoHo store comes with a special temporary exbhibition of work by students from the School of Visual Arts, including illustrated Marcel Proust portraits in Moleskine done in sketchbooks (it’s the centennial anniversary of Proust’s “Swann’s Way”).

In addition to notebooks, the shops also sell pieces from the brand’s Travelling Collection of bags, and limited edition items like special notebooks, planners, and iPad covers, as well as gift cards for the Moleskine Photo Books.
