The second location is a simple evolution from our first store" says Eunice Quan, co-owner with David Lin and Armin Tehrani. "We have expanded on our concept and began the move in representing art objects in the store. We created The Board of Trade Co with the notion that there are other consumers like us, who are looking for something fresh, unique and different."
It's a trading post of design, art and fashion.
"Too often we would walk into a boutique and see the same star-power brands carried time and time again" says David Lin. "Expanding on a current roster of local and international labels such as Painkiller, A Kind Of Guise, and I Love Ugly, The Board of Trade Co will focus on carrying useable objects that can be described as functional art."
Hand-built change rooms warm up their new heritage space. Young and burgeoning designers line the walls; Each piece has a little detail or accented quality to it that sets it apart. Drop crotch pants for men (by I Love Ugly), leather bralettes for women, and an array of dresses and shirts that all have unique silhouettes. They also have your basics covered with classic tees and chinos.
