Say Hello to Christopher Bettig’s Installation in Pac Height Boutique


Bay Area boutique Candystore Collective has a knack for innovative in-store installations. Their original location in the Mission incorporated one of the first uses of Woolly Pockets I’d ever seen–and the result is a lovely verdant facade greeting passersby on an otherwise plantless strip of 16th Street.

At Hello, their new fashion outpost in Pac Heights, customers get another design treat–this time courtesy of artist Christopher Bettig. The man behind Los Angeles design studio The Mountain Label is known for his hip graphics gracing fabric, posters, and more, but this time his medium of choice is wood fashioned into a giant explosion of diamonds on one of the boutique’s walls. Part of me would love to reimagine this into a DIY version in my apartment, but patching up all those nail holes on moving day sounds like a nightmare. Instead, catch the giant installation in person at Hello’s grand opening party tonight at 2226 Bush Street.
