Apparently, Rag & Bone loves autumns in LA. The cult-fave label has opened a new outpost every year since invading our retail scene two years ago, starting with their Melrose shop in fall 2012 and a Brentwood boutique in fall 2013. It seems they're making a trend of it, as an insider tells us the Seinfield-loving NYC brand is slated to open their third LA location in Venice (as we suspected) in September.
With 13 stores worldwide, Rag & Bone's space at 1118 Abbot Kinney Blvd (a few doors down from Mona Moore) measures 4,200 square feet and is rumored to include a bar in the back. Given that Abbot Kinney retailers love a café-in-shop (Eater notes that caffeinated shoemakers TOMS and WILL Leather Goods also house their own coffee bars), we wouldn't be surprised if the style-stalked brand follows suit. No word yet on the exact opening date, but stay tuned!
