Now that French brand The Kooples is set to coolify Robertson Blvd sometime this year, who will keep its hipper-than-thou vibes in check on the ritzy shopping stretch? Landing just kitty-corner from the Parisian label's first-ever U.S. store is luxe bohemian boutique Babakul, which quietly took over trendy clothing shop Sara Marco's former digs at 8811 Alden Dr a few months back.
Just like its second location at Malibu Country Mart, the cozy, coastal-inspired space stocks the beachy brand's hippie chic apparel, super soft basics, outerwear, accessories and more. On top of that, the store's unloading their fall merch (including leather jackets, loungewear and more) to make way for spring arrivals, so head over now to snap it all up for 50 to 70% off.
Babakul is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10am to 8pm and Sundays from 11am to 6pm.
