S ince Joanne and Charles Teichman first opened Ylang 23 in 1985, the fine jewelry boutique has been a Dallas go-to for edgy, taste-making designers. But when their daughter, Alysa Teichman, left her job in New York City to join the family business, it was like rose-gold rocket fuel. She expanded the shop's footprint at Plaza at Preston Center, launched a competition to identify emerging designer talent, and opened Wildlike, a luxury piercing boutique with locations in Dallas and Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood. Mid-June, the sister stores will come together — quite literally — when Ylang 23 moves to a new location a few doors down from Wildlike in The Shops of Highland Park. The airy, 3,200-square-foot boutique is twice the size of Ylang 23's former Plaza outpost, allowing the Teichmans to reimagine the flow and feel of the store, assisted by a team that includes MAOarch Architecture, B. Russo Designs, and Wield Creative. "We wanted to let the jewelry breathe," Alysa says. Soft pinks, plants, burl wood, and bouclé define Ylang 23's residential- inspired interior, which includes a window to showcase an on-site jeweler. The store's focal point, a long red travertine table, sits inside a shop-in- shop designed with hosting in mind. The first featured designer will be Retrouvaí, an L.A.-based boutique jewelry brand discovered by Ylang 23 at its emerging talent competition, TheNextNow, in 2016. Ylang 23's move just felt right to Alysa, who opened Wildlike in The Shops of Highland Park in 2021, alongside tenants Avant Garden, Sachet, MiniLuxe, Layette, and Drybar. "The center caters to the way that women shop," she says. "We'll go to a restaurant, then get our nails done, then get our hair blown out, then pick up a baby gift." A bit of fine jewelry is a perfect addition. Y l a n g 2 3 , 4 2 5 2 O a k L a w n Av e . i n Th e S h o p s o f H i g h l a n d Pa r k , Caitlin Clark OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. The Family Jewels Round Top Film Festivals Screens M ove over, Telluride, H a m p t o n s , a n d Napa. Round Top Film Festival opens Thursday through Sunday, November 7 through 10, at an iconic Round Top spot: Festival Hill. The founders are mother and daughter, Shanna Schanen and Skylar Schanen, whose familial ties to the Round Top area go back generations. Shanna and husband Rob Schanen raised their family in Houston, then Austin, while acquiring a Round Top property in 2007 as a weekend retreat. Daughter Skylar is a filmmaker, who at the age of 17 produced her first screenplay Space Case, which was made into a film. Now 23, she's been on both sides of many cinematic sets; written, directed, and starred in indie films, garnering awards along the way. "Some films never see past the final edit," says Skylar. "Film festivals offer a vital platform for artists to create and exhibit their work, potentially launching careers in an industry hungry for fresh voices. We want to welcome the film community to the best little town in Texas, and are eager to cultivate opportunities for networking, and celebrate the beauty of storytelling." Come November, expect screenings alongside workshops, panels, and other cinematic events that highlight the uniqueness of Round Top. Festival submissions are open now until August 20 in five categories: Audience Award for Best Feature Film; and Jury Awards for Best Live Action Short, Best Comedy Short, Best Documentary Short, and Best Music Video.
