In the event that your mom sold all her old clothes and accessories without consulting you first, you can reclaim the keepsakes that should have been yours at Kokorokoko. Imagine a vivid flashback colored by geometric patterns indigenous to the 70s. Collages from 80s magazines fill Kokorokoko’s walls, along with a giant Swatch watch, Patrick Nagel portraits, and African cloth. On the bright green racks you’ll find everything from crop tops and board shorts to sequined dresses and patterned jumpsuits. As store partner Sasha Hodges says, “We wanted to make it like a teenager’s bedroom—the coolest teenager you’ve ever met.” For you couch surfers, Kokorokoko also sells online at etsy.com/shop/kokorokoko. —Taylor Goldenstein
