The idea of a boutique-slash-gallery sounded suspect, but we have to hand it to the agnès b store in SoHo, which has managed to pull it off. And we strongly suggest you beat the early-winter blues by stopping by for an exhibit (that's luckily been extended through Jan. 26th) of Massimo Vitali's amazing, large-scale photographs of crowds of people in resort-y settings throughout Italy, Turkey and Germany. His bird's-eye photos of pastel-clad vacationers are so pitch-perfect that they seem like they've been meticulously choreographed. Check out a selection above, and stop by the store (50 Howard St.), or Bonni Benrubi Gallery (41 E. 57th St.), who are presenting a concurrent exhibition, "Arcadian Remains."
