In a throwaway line in an article about Rag & Bone's latest boutique opening in Boston, it's mentioned that the brand's founders are "searching for space in Los Angeles." There's no more info, but as always, we love to guess at where our favorite labels will land. Rag & Bone has boutiques in the West Village, Soho, the UWS and Nolita in NYC; a location in Georgetown in D.C.; and now an outpost on Newbury Street in Boston.
Stores that they call neighbors in those cities include A.P.C., John Varvatos, Rebecca Taylor, Unis, Barneys, Kate Spade, Reiss, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Agent Provocateur. We're betting that they settle on Melrose Ave near Croft by A.P.C., Vanessa Bruno and Marc Jacobs—or nearby on Robertson by Steven Alan and 3.1 Phillip Lim—but that's total speculation. Thoughts, anyone?
