Altogether Now

Here's what made me jump up and down and yell in my office last week because, well, I'm a little excitable:

"This is going to be Topshop in all its glory...It's not going to be Americanized. It will be London transferred to New York," said Sir Phillip Green, the retailer's owner....Green arrived in town this week for some advance publicity, and to prowl for other Manhattan sites. On his radar - 34th Street, and ________ and _______ Avenue in the _______. He said he's not close to securing a second site, but things could change during this visit. "I've got 10 sites to look at in three days. If the right deal comes up, I would do it," Green said. "If I find three, I will open three."

-WWD, Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Obviously ______ & _______is not a direct quote. But in order to keep the good Topshop karma coming 34th Street way, I cannot mention any other part of town in conjunction with the T word (karmic law). Not that I wouldn't love to see Topshops all over NYC, I'm just putting my psychic effort behind the ONE street (Topshop 34th Street, Topshop 34th Street). If I could, this post would be like a psychedelic record from the 60's and have subliminal messages. Play it backwards and it would say "Topshop, 34th Street" over and over in a scary voice.

So let's start the universal cosmic chant that Sir Philip Green and associated real estate bigwigs will be unable to resist: "Topshop 34th Street, Topshop 34th Street." Oh, I'm so overcaffeinated this morning.

Who shall be our chant leader? Of course, SwamiLeon!

It sounds great! Topshop opens a new one... However, Topshop in London has increases its prices a lot recently... I guess that you will get some exclusive collections as well :)

Cammila said...

The more Topshops the better! The more you guys get out in New York, the sooner we'll get one out where I live in the Midwest. I'll think good thoughts for you! ;)

I gotta be honest....I read this and immediately had to google Topshop to understand the excitement. Oooh-I totally get it now. I think you would have the same giddiness sans caffiene. I forsee some really fab fitting room photos!

lc said...

that would be AWESOME. sometimes soho is just too far away from where i am.

also, damn, cedar rapids! i've seen the pictures from the press-citizen (haha, i bet we're the only two people in the fashion blogosphere that's even heard of that newspaper). boyfriend's ok, his family lives on a hill or something. still, this stuff is heavy.

Subliminal messages are definitely an amazing tool if used correctly. I have benefited much from subliminal cds and similar products. Where do you get yours from? I buy mine from http://www.chargedaudio.com"

hey, lc, and now des moines, crazy, the levees are going all round the mississippi - my junior high is under water! not that i had any good memories there, but still...i don't remember the press citizen, but was very familiar with the Cedar Rapids Gazette. very happy to hear the bf's family is on a hill - same for my sister in Des Moines.

How great ;)
I wish I could have a Topshop here... but my island is so small.

enc said...

This only makes me jealous. I have to drive 50 miles to get to H&M as it is.

fashion herald said...

I forget, some do have to travel 50 miles to get to h&m. But to choose, topshop or small island? think i'd have to go with the island.

omg! I will aso get behind you karmically for this one. I'm psyched about the Soho one, but 34th street will be just steps away from my subway which means more time to get some shopping done!
