Fortitude Valley's Fallow Boutique Has Opened an Art Pop-Up

Is it a store? Is it a gallery? In Fallow's case, it's both. The brooding Fortitude Valley boutique has been lining its Brunswick Street shelves with fashion, accessories and other artful items since it was founded in 2008, however, now their rejection of conventional retail has undergone a slight metamorphosis. Meet Fallow [art space], the collective's foray into the gallery world.

Fallow's home away from home brings more than just cloth and curiosities to a new, short-term pop-up at 60 James Street — it dives head-first into the experimental creative realm. Open every day of the week until the end of the year, it boasts a curated showcase ranging from ceramics and jewellery to paintings and light installations. Christmas shopping, anyone?

The aim? To not only let Fallow's customers wear art from their main store, but experience the collection firsthand in its many forms. That includes taste, sight, sound and smell. And if you're wondering where the edible part of the equation comes in, just hope you drop by when the gallery is handing out champagne truffles.

Other than delicious treats, you'll also find concrete sculptures by Luke Mansini, pieces by renowned local jeweller Luke Maninov, and handcrafted leather sculptures by Lyn and Tony on display. Add artisan ceramics inspired by the Aussie landscape thanks to Made of Australia, and unisex fragrances by Mad et Len, and you won't look at shopping the same way.

Find Fallow [art space] at 60 James Street, Fortitude Valley, until December 31, 2016. Visit their website, Facebook page and Instagram feed for further details.
