Shopper’s Diary: Iko Iko in Los Angeles

Located on Sunset Boulevard in Angelino Heights, Iko Iko is the brainchild of clothing designer Kristin Dickson (who designs her line, Rowena Sartin, in a workspace behind the shop). The wares include an eclectic range of crafts, curiosities, and clothing (as well as pieces of Shin Okuda’s Waka Waka custom furniture). Iko Iko is also a venue for various artistic endeavors, including music, readings, and felting sessions. Dickson and Okuda recently took a trip to Japan, and the store is currently featuring many of the finds brought back from their travels.
