A pop-up store in the Fitzrovia section of London that was only open for business Wednesday had no merchandise whatsoever—and that was by design.

Danish apparel company Kabooki, the company behind toy giant The Lego Group’s Lego Wear line, used the pop-up store at 55 Eastcastle St. to debut its limited-edition streetwear collection for adults.

However, fitting rooms were not necessary, as the store contained no clothing.

Instead, visitors who clicked on the one item in the store—a Snapcode on a plinth—were able to use Snapchat as a portal for entry into an augmented reality fashion boutique.

Lego Group and Kabooki worked with global digital agency We Are Social on the initiative.
