Before Totokaelo came Totokaelo.com the online shop and before that came Impulse the more casually minded sister store. The history of its rise runs parallel with the rise of a more fashion friendly Seattle. Now, in the gallery like space built out using reclaimed and salvaged materials the journey nears completion. On the long racks of clothing are represented several world-class avant-garde designers that are impossible to find in other Seattle boutiques. But name dropping is not Totokaelo's game. Each collection carried is boiled down to essential looks that are distinctive without looking overdone; that can worn to the point of being worn out. Neutral tones and subtly stylish silhouettes abound.
