Downtown's Arts District has landed yet another cool concept space, this time in the form of one artfully curated collab from our city's top cerebral creatives. New pop-up shop-meets-gallery Objects Collected is the brainchild of the folks behind fave boutique IKO IKO, designer-loved vintage shop Storefront and the Young Guns talents at Building Block, who've all teamed for one insanely inspiring (and very aesthetically pleasing) retail experience.
The uber minimalist 2,000-square-foot museum-like store is "a shared shop experiment that we're trying for a couple of months in transition to a permanent space," IKO IKO owner and designer Kristin Dickson-Okuda tells us. In addition to stocking her conceptual clothing and accessories line Rowena Sartin, the shop's inventive inventory also includes handmade wood furniture from her husband Shin Okuda's line WAKA WAKA, vintage treasures from Parachute Market curator/Storefront owner Coryander Friend, geometric-inspired jewelry from Hannah Keefe, Building Block's chic structured bags, found objects from Japan and much more.

Objects Collected is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 12pm to 7pm and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm.
