Proof that when one door closes, another one opens: Just after Three Sirens announced they’d be closing after eight years on North 3rd Street, Marlton’s Erdon boutique announced the opening of a second location in Old City. The high-fashion boutique (which you may recognize from Philly Mag Shops) is opening in the Ligne Roset space at 162 North 3rd Street in spring of this year. The boutique has a Joan Shepp feel in terms of the designers it carries (think: modern, voluminous silhouettes by the likes of Ivan Grundahl and fashion-forward shoes by Robert Clergerie), but the avant-garde aesthetic is a welcome one on North 3rd. Co-owner Eric tells me it’s been a work in progress for months (how he didn’t let it slip during our prep for Philly Mag Shops, I’ll never know), but with lines like Acne and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela finally available in Old City, I suppose it’s worth the wait.
