Profile

Vintage clothing from L.A., French-inscribed totes, delicate antique teacups, and kitschy Japanese postcards converge in this quirky boutique and gallery. Buyer Takeshi Iida scouts Japan, Western Europe, and the States for new and used additions to his 2,400-square-foot shop, and the adjoining gallery in back holds regular open calls for local artists, whose work also covers the entryway’s white-brick walls. Formerly a warehouse, the store makes efficient use of its ample space, packing tables near the front with an eye-catching array of tea sets and glassware, and grouping apparel by style in the back. Experienced vintage-prowlers snap up Vivienne Westwood handkerchiefs in space-age prints, Comme des Garçons jackets, and Yohji Yamamoto shirts, which hang among plentiful men’s plaid button-downs and boxy blazers on rods suspended from the ceiling. But in a neighborhood saturated with vintage boutiques, the store sets itself apart with its eccentric Japanese influence, offering cutesy illustrated cards and prints from Propeller Studios, Amifa’s intricate gift wrap, knee-high BRG combat boots, and colorful neckties from Tokyo.
