There's more shuffling on GQ's once-faved shopping block. Following that recent retail trio's trail from Abbot Kinney to Main Street is "demi-couture" clothing and acessories shop Koko, which is taking over Paris 1900's Art Deco-inspired storefront at 2703 Main Street. Swiftly filling Koko's barely-cold void is its Abbot Kinney neighbor, bohemian-cool boutique Burning Torch, which arrived at the Venice retail haunt three years ago.
The registry-worthy shop's new 1,000-square-foot home will keep the same business hours at its old outpost (Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from from 11am to 5pm). Expect it to stock founder Karyn Craven's own collection of eco-conscious, gypset-minded apparel, vintage-inspired jewelry, antique finds, and more. No word yet on the exact opening date; stay tuned for more.
