In celebration of common interests, Brain Dead and Dover Street Market come together on an exclusive collaborative collection and a new in-store installation at DSM’s London location.
The theme of both the collection and installation centres around the pairs shared passions in various trends and emerging subcultures from music, culture and art, and the space in-between these worlds. Although it’s their most diverse offering so far, it’s not the first time the two parties have come together on a collaborative venture, with Brain Dead putting their artistic direction towards an exclusive t-shirt collection towards the end of last year.
The new “World Update” installation is set to host exhibitions, as well as showcase zines, records and extremely limited art pieces that align with Brain Dead’s aesthetic. The main focus of the space will be the latest Brain Dead x DSM collaborative collection which features a monochromatic selection of unique graphic tees, crewneck sweatshirts, custom headwear and the stand out ‘Jumanji’ jacket. Capping it all off, there will also be a scarf exhibit displayed on the walls of the space, featuring the work of Clay Arlington, Kevin Harris, Tim Head, Chris Oh, Jen Shear and B. Thom Stevenson. Each piece is unique and arrives in editions of 5. When purchased each scarf will come with a hand-signed certificate from each artist and will be presented in a collectors box
You can shop the Brain Dead x Dover Street Market collection over on the DSM website now. If you’re around London over the next two weeks, be sure to head down to the store to check out the space.
