Patient will be immediately relocated to Khastoo and placed under the supervision of gallerist Leila Khastoo and denizen of design Quentin Smith of Smithshop and Stor.
There, patient will be subjected to three weeks of experimental exposure to a controlled group of purchasable objects that were once available only online. Course of treatment will include vintage clothing (see: Sander, Jil; Van Noten, Dries); housewares (see: Saarinen, Eero; Brastoff, Sascha), art (see: Smith, Greg Parma; Hyde, James); and other carefully curated miscellany including books, music, jewelry, and accessories.
A trail known as champagne brunch will be conducted on Sunday at 1200 hours, in which said beverage will be offered accompanied by homemade scones and marmalade.
This particular retail therapy is highly recommended.
