Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

On top of scoring a creative concept shop, Chinatown has landed one of LA’s minimalist-cool accessories brands. The Young Guns sister duo behind Building Block is relocating its luxe leather goods shop to Broadway this Friday.

Landing is space 104, the boutique will offer Kimberly and Nancy Wu’s full line of utilitarian-meets-playful carryalls (like their bestselling bucket bags, duffels, totes, and rucksacks), sleek footwear, and more artful accoutrements. They’re toasting BB 2.0 with a grand opening bash this Friday — and you’re invited.

Swing by from 6 to 9pm and enjoy Hakutsuru sake, bites by Carey Chiaia, and fortune cookies by Su Wu. Into it? Do the brand a favor by RSVP’ing for the cool-kid party via its Facebook event page here.
