[***UPDATE 2005...CLOSED!] concept shop from tokion magazine, the world's favorite japanese-english bilingual art, fashion, music, culture magazine. the store sells limited-edition double-name goods from such select brands as x-girl, balance wear design, and gravis as well as t-shirts designed by a cadre of hip young "disobiedent" designers. the store's exterior is a rotating gallery space which has featured work by brazilian graffiti artists os gemeos, japanese abstract graffiti artist kami, and photographer stefan ruiz.
