We've come to expect a lot of stunts from Dover Street Market—crazy collabs, international debuts, and even top-to-toe revamps—but they still manage to surprise us. On Saturday, September 6th, WWD reports that the Japanese brand Vivsim will bring a trailer to the quirky department store, which will be filled with a collection of naturally-dyed apparel.
The pop-up, which will run through September 9th, is based on the brand's recent Paris exhibition entitled "Indigo Camping Trailer." It'll feature the same restored Boles Aero vehicle that was originally built all the way back in 1948.
"The idea of a flea market is very natural in the U.S., but I wanted to present a re-interpreted version," designer Hiroki Nakamura told the paper. "The pieces that I have designed for this event are inspired by a Japanese aesthetic. It seemed natural to present this concept of a new type of flea market with Dover Street Market."
Expect to find menswear, men's shoes, and unisex items retailing from $150 to $3,500.
