A Peek Inside Rag & Bone at 73 East Houston

Posted on: July 20th, 2010 at 6:11 am by

Rag & Bone is slowly inching toward the finish line with its new Lower East Side outpost at the corner of East Houston and Elizabeth.  Within the last few days, the trendy boutique shop briefly peeled away its protective brown paper to reveal the current state of its interior.  As of this morning, however, the windows are covered up again.

The most noticeable change since the recent paint job and mural homage is the snazzy new namesake leafing on all the windows.  Behind the glass, though, the decor is beginning to take shape. When we passed by yesterday, a few workers were busy assembling shelving units and such.  And it appears as though the tiled floor from Cafe Colonial will remain.

Plus, there looks to be a Rag & Bone branded shoe shop in the adjoining space which was formerly a greasy kitchen. Still no word yet on a conclusive opening date.

The shop is currently looking for help, as evidenced by the job listing flyers in the windows.  If you are interested in positions email here.
