When Coclico in Nolita opened a few years ago, the idea was to sell the brand's shoe selection among ready-to-wear lines from designers Rachel Comey, Iro, and a handful of others. Now, WWD reports that the boutique is planning to drop all the other lines when it undergoes a revamp in July.
Sandra Canselier, Coclico's founder, explains: "The Coclico brand has been growing tremendously. I have enough styles that I can fill up my entire space with the Coclico collection. We're pushing the brand rather than [remaining a] multi-brand space." It appears that the store might close down for a month in preparation, since WWD adds that the boutique will "showcase the full range of Coclico footwear when it reopens in August." However, the brand's website will also relaunch in July, so you can still get your shoe fix over the summer the e-commerce way.
Update: Coclico has just explained that they'll still stock outside shoe designers, but that they're eliminating the ready-to-wear collections.
