Boho style-inclined travel addicts will soon have a new place to dwell in Venice. Figue, a luxury e-shop catering to stylish jetsetters, is set to open its very first LA pop-up shop on cool-kid playground Abbot Kinney. Located across from beach bum haunt Aviator Nation, the space is set to be unveiled on Saturday, May 17.
We first caught wind of Figue's global treasures when our sister site Racked NY previewed their debut storefront in New York's Nolita neighborhood. Founder Stephanie von Watzdorf reveals to us that the brand's 1,300-square-foot West Coast home will feature "Moroccan and European design elements" charmed by hand-embroidered kaftans, tunics, dresses in worldly prints, one-of-a-kind military jackets, handbags, shoes, jewelry and small leather goods. There will also be "a curated assortment of limited-edition accessories sourced from [Stephanie's] travels" in the mix.
Running through July, Figue's LA pop-up will be open Monday through Sunday from 11am to 7pm.
