Dover Street Market x House of Billiam
blcklistd was invited to an House of Billiam exclusive Spring/Summer 2012 Varsity Collection launch at the newly renovated ‘The Fox’ on the edge of East London. Dover Street Market (DSM) commissioned the champions of ‘cut and saw’ to design an exclusive capsule of eight reversible varsity jackets to coincide with the store opening at Ginza. The launch, which was on the 16th March also coincided with DSM’s resident brand Comme des Garçons’ PLAY label capsule release with A Bathing Ape and Supreme.
The exclusive range was crafted at Billiam’s East London studio, and features a range of materials and prints that have been sourced across the UK.
House of Billiam’s modus operandi has seen them gain a huge appreciation on the streetwear scene in which this has rippled its way to Japan where the street scene is massive. This has resulted in the collaboration with DSM and further cementing their status.
On the night, one of such jackets was raffled away to an avid fan and guest DJs The Correspondents, Piff Gang, DJ Cable and M Cuts ensured that the sounds of good vibration were flowing in tandem with the drinks. 30 pillows which mirrored the exclusive designs were available to take home as a token gesture.
The House of Billiam x Dover Street Collection Varsity Collection is now available exclusively at Dover Street Market in both the London and Ginza branches.
