Shop Alert: Newbury Street Update

I was back in town last week. Here are the changes I noticed on Newbury:

Le Tigre is open. Since when did they become relevant again?

Judi Rotenberg Gallery is closed. It’s too bad; they had some great work.

And right downstairs, Shu Uemura has shuttered too. Probably because they were so rude. [NOTE: A reader was offended by this comment, so I’ll clarify.] I found the service at this boutique to be unprofessional and unresponsive each time I stopped by or contacted them. By contrast, the service at MAC (112 Newbury Street) is always impeccable. PS – I use products from both lines and love them.
