JAKARTA -- On the surface, Ageless Galaxy is typical of urban Indonesia's growing affluence. With its combination of stylish gray cement floors and soft, natural-looking lighting, the apparel-focused lifestyle brand's newly opened store looks more like an art gallery than a boutique, evoking exclusivity and style while its shirts, jackets, bags and other products act as design pieces.

Inside the store, located in Kemang, Jakarta's lifestyle and culinary center, items range from about $22 for a shirt to $280 for a tracksuit -- high prices in a country where average monthly salaries are around $200. In keeping with its austere style, the products are arranged with purposeful severity, with only one item of each design on show.
