Ritual Ritual, the new incarnation of NoLibs jewelry boutique Concrete Polish, officially opens Friday, September 13 (spooky!). Angela Monaco, the designer behind the popular Concrete Polish jewelry line, has partnered with local labels Couture Vulture, Amber Noelle Designs, and Steadfast Honey to transform the North Third Street store in a collaborative effort between the four emerging designers. In addition to the apparel and accessories from the Ritual Ritual owners, the boutique will showcase a rotating cast of other independent artists from across the globe.
Along with a name and inventory overhaul, the boutique's received a head-to-toe makeover, now sporting a black and white color scheme. Check it out for yourself on Thursday, September 12, from 8pm to 10pm, during Ritual Ritual's grand opening soiree.
