It’s Open House time (and the first birthday of Dover Street Market Singapore)! And really, what better way to throw a bash than to literally have a party?
For one day only (28 July 2018), the multi-label concept store has converted a range of cargo shipping containers into actual retail spaces, housing a series of product launches, including exclusive merchandise, from friends and collaborators, along with special outdoor events.
Likewise, Paris Saint-Germain Football Club has created a special capsule, which comprised of limited edition Nike Air Force 1 sneakers and a skateboard designed by local artist Mark Ong of SBTG as well as the 2018/19 away jerseys (we spotted a Neymar jersey), training top, jacket, pins and a cap.
On the more streetwear side of things, Samuel Ross, the founder and creator of label A-COLD-WALL was also in town to launch the exclusive DSMS merchandise; a tough-looking paint-splattered jacket, amongst other designs, as well as soundscapes scored by him for DSMS’ 1st Anniversary installation.
Not forgetting, a quirky embroidered sweater from Edison Chen and KB-owned brand Emotionally Unavailable.
That being said, the socially-inducing open-space concept was also the grounds forAvi Gold’s Better™ Gift Shop in the form of a pop-up hot dog stand, filled with tongue-in-cheek t-shirts and DSM merchandise.
Those heading to the beach anytime soon would have loved Potato Head Bali‘s capsule – delightfully-printed shirts and bermudas from Mezcal Circle Club and Green School, housed in a container made from recycled waste and natural materials.
Other highlights of the day included a ‘live’ sneaker customisation by Mark Ong of SBTG from 2pm to 7pm at Paris Saint-Germain Football Club container, WERK Magazine‘s limited edition poster for the launch of DOMINIE-WERK No.26: Béton Brut aka “The Brutalist” Magazine, with a special installation in-store, a t-shirt screening activity with local artist Sam Lo’s graphics at 11am at Nike container, and Masayuki Ino‘s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection in a specially-designed container installation.
