As if Abbot Kinney couldn't get any cooler. In addition to hosting Sol Angeles' KCRW-backed pop-up, Caudalie's Parisian beauty haven and Satine's adorable Kawaii-themed hub, the westside shopping stretch might be landing its very own Rag & Bone boutique. Following the cult-favorite New York label's existing Melrose and Brentwood locations, this would be their third LA outpost.
A tipster tells us that "it's not official yet, but we are 99% sure it will happen. If they do take the Venice space they'll sign the lease on March 1st." Word on the street is that the new space may also include an in-store bar, which wouldn't be a surprise, considering they have a coffee shop inside their Meatpacking store in NYC.
No word on where exactly on Abbot Kinney, but we spotted this curious listing that notes a Rag & Bone store at 1601 Abbot Kinney Blvd, where Steven Alan Annex is currently located. (We doubt Steven is shuttering, so this might be a glitch.) Stay tuned for more.
