There’s a game of musical chairs brewing on Orchard Street between Grand and Broome of late. The music recently stopped, and it is fashion house James Coviello without the proverbial seat at 70 Orchard.

The three-year-old boutique recently shuttered and will henceforth operate from a studio space in the Garment District. And also through its online marketplace. The storefront might not be vacant for long, though. We heard rumor earlier this week that Kaight was to possibly move across the street. When reached for comment, ownership confirmed that nothing is confirmed.

Meanwhile, drastic rent hikes at 179 Orchard Street (in the shadow of Thompson LES) forced the temporary Delicate Raymond Jewelry to find a more permanent shop south of Delancey. Her accessories operation is relocating to number 73 north, which hasn’t hosted a commercial tenant in quite some time. It’ll soft open to the neighborhood on Friday.
