Did you know that Dover Street Market is a project by Comme des Garçon’s founder, Rei Kawakubo? Honestly, I didn’t know too.
Dover Street Market, if you don’t already know, is a Singapore boutique that carries a deluge of brands, from high end, up-and-coming designers to cult streetwear. It is a fashion haven for those who can afford it and an inspirational ground for those who can’t.
Either way, Dover Street Market is the perfect place to shop for specially curated fashion goods.
Two standout items from their latest collection would be the Gucci x DSM Women’s Hooded Laminated Jacket (Gold) and NikeLab DSM’s Yellow Gold Nike Air Force 1.
Perfect for a very gold Chinese New Year.
If you’re a lover of this shiny colour, you would absolutely die at the sight of this gold Gucci jacket. Never get lost in a crowd with this metallic gold hoodie.
The jacket features a front zip closure and pockets for you to store your ang baos. Had enough interaction with your relatives? Sure, just pull down the drawstrings of the jacket’s hood to hide your face from the world.
Of course, Gucci would not be Gucci without its signature interlocking Gs. On the Gucci x DSM Women’s Hooded Laminated Jacket, we can see a stripe of the interlocking G design running down each sleeve in brown threading, a noticeable contrast from the metallic gold.
Just noticeable enough for that humble flex.
Up next is NikeLab DSM’s Yellow Gold Nike Airforce 1 (AF-1).
We already know that AF-1 is an undeniable classic shoe, but this metallic gold colourway completely changes the vibe of these kicks.
The metallic gold A-F1 is a complete stunner with the interior lining and laces matching the exterior of the shoe. Making it an undeniable attention grabber if you were to stomp around in these sneakers.
Imagine sporting these metallic garbs this Chinese New Year, it would definitely be a conversation starter, to say the least.
Price: Gucci x DSM Women’s Hooded Laminated Jacket (Gold) – S$2,600, NikeLab DSM Yellow Gold Nike Air Force 1 – S$229
