NYT on Shen Beauty

The NY Times writes about  Shen Beauty [315 Court Street]:

NY Times: David Netto helped design the space, which is stocked primarily with organic products and exclusive British imports like the Lubatti Collection (the recipes of the 1920s skin-care specialist Madame Lubatti, revived by Jo Malone’s sister, Tracey); the London facialist Amanda Lacey’s line (she’s a close friend of Stringer’s); and Kate Logan’s potions, which are made from herbs plucked from her own garden. The original samples arrived stateside in Stringer’s hand luggage. “We’d rather someone buy one small item and then come back,” she says. “I think that goes with the spirit of the neighborhood.”

While Richards, a Cobble Hill resident, founded the shop as a resource for those living in the area, Shen Beauty has become a destination for city dwellers. Says the model Jessica Stam, “I take trips to Brooklyn just to shop there.”

    How can this be “destination”? This place literally just opened after the immediate prior occupant, Ola Baby, just closed. Somebody’s shilling somewhere.
