Back in the Retail Groove

On April 12, New York’s well-dressed men will have a store all to their own. Nordstrom will open its first location in Manhattan at 235 West 57th Street. “This is our first stand-alone men’s store, and we want to create an entire experience that reflects the best of what we have to offer,” says Nordstrom spokesperson John Bailey. The store will feature details like complimentary personal stylists and a clubhouse for cocktails, as well as services that connect online shopping with the personal experience of the store. 

Nutritional Chocolate

Healthy chocolate? Oui! Available May 23, Bien Être ushers in a new age of nutritional snacking. Crafted by Chef Nicolas Cloiseau, the collection features fruit purées, fruit juices and nectars to boost the antioxidants, polyphenolic compounds and vitamins in chocolate. Among the more surprising ingredients? Aloe vera. “By adding aloe vera to our green apple ganache, I wanted to achieve a taste that was fresh and light. To my surprise the aloe vera also served to intensify the taste of the chocolate itself,” says Cloiseau.
