Accessories, I am sorry to report, do not get a good shake from the Great Thinkers. Seneca, for example, said, “They that mistake life’s accessories for life itself are like them that go too fast in a maze.” John Lennon posited that drugs are accessories to normal living, in a society too cruel to be lived plain. Granted, neither of them was talking about bags and shoes, but let the points stand: In Utopia, we’d all be Zen master minimalists. But what’s the fun in that? If Utopia entails moping around in togas, surely we’d all rather indulge our flawed humanity at the Little House of Accessories, the new outpost for all things extraneous opened last week by Opening Ceremony. Adjacent to the Opening Ceremony store in L.A., the Little House puts accessories from the likes of Alexander Wang, Delfina Delettrez, Proenza Schouler, Linda Farrow, and Slow and Steady Wins the Race all in one place. If you’re dying to pick up the creeper-buckled wedge boots from the new Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony collection, this is the place do it (while supplies last.) Moreover, New York-based antique jeweler Kentshire Galleries has set up its first Los Angeles outpost at the shop, which O.C. founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have seen fit to decorate in surreal, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids style. Long story short—when it comes to Utopia, to each her own.
