Comptoir Des Cotonniers is coming to NYC!
Buried in today's WWD is the best news since Topshop: One of my favorite French stores Comptoir Des Cotonniers is opening a store in Soho. Because WWD is subscription only, I'll let the article speak for itself. Here's what it said:

Comptoir des Cotonniers, the Paris-based sportswear brand that's part of Fast Retailing, the Tokyo-based retail group that also owns Uniqlo, is set to land in New York. The brand, which is known for featuring real-life mothers and daughters in its campaigns, will open a 1,000-square-foot store at 155 Spring Street in SoHo in September. "We like being in Soho," said Nicolas Bertrand, communications director at Comptoir des Cotonniers, at a presentation of the brand's fall collection at its Notting Hill, London, store Wednesday. Comptoir des Cotonniers operates stores across countries including France, the U.K., Germany, Japan and South Korea. Bertrand said the company is looking to open two more New York locations in the future. And the brand has further openings planned for this year, in Bath, Kingston and Cambridge in the U.K.; Ibiza and Palma, as well as Majorca in Spain, and in Rome, Berlin and Hanover, Germany.

Yay! First of all, I was kicking myself for not having bought anything at CDC in Germany, so this makes me feel a lot better. Also, I had no idea that it was owned by the same company as Uniqlo, but that makes sense, come to think of it--both chains carry chic, well-made basics at reasonable prices (hopefully CDC's prices will be adjusted downward for the weak dollar). September can't come quickly enough...
