Unbranded Opens at The Statler

Unbranded, Downtown’s innovative pop-up shop, quietly opened its doors at The Statler in Downtown Dallas on February 5th. This time Unbranded will feature one brand exclusively for two months. Dallas-based brand OETL Co., a long time Unbranded merchant, will be featured in the space through March 31, 2018. In addition to its own line-up of globally sourced, handmade goods, OETL Co. will feature collaborations with local brands Boulevard East, Ryan Raschbaum, Modern + Soul, and artist Ruben Burgess Jr. (@sartorialnolift) celebrating and supporting the growing community of Dallas-based organizations who are committed to artisan traditions.

“At its core, OETL Co. is about preserving global artisanship and bringing it into people’s daily life. There are so many designers and artists around the world who are creating incredible wares, using traditional techniques. The resulting products are each a unique work of art with a soul and a story,” said Gisela. “As compared to our online store, the physical pop-up at The Statler will allow us to interact with our customers, to personally share the story of each product and celebrate the artisans behind them.”

Long-time Unbranded partner Downtown Dallas, Inc. (DDI) took over operations of Unbranded during the 2017 holiday season and featured over 30 local brands at the Dallas Power & Light Building. DDI hopes to operate Unbranded pop up shops in available otherwise-vacant space year round to serve as a retail incubator. Unbranded’s co-founders, Matt Alexander and Bryan DeLuca, have remained closely involved in an advisory and editorial capacity. As always, Unbranded provides free retail and event space to a curated group of entrepreneurs, designers, photographers, artists, chefs, and more.

The Statler is situated next to Main Street Garden, Downtown’s neighborhood park that plays host to a variety of music festivals, movie nights and other community events. The Statler features 219 luxury residences and 159 hotel rooms and is currently home to six restaurants and bars, Over Easy, Scout (open Feb 19th), Bourbon & Banter, Waterproof, Fine China (open in March) and R&B (opening soon).

The Unbranded pop up store will be open Monday – Saturday 10am – 8pm and Sunday 10am – 5pm at 1914 Commerce Street.
