Ai Wei Wei x COMME des GARçONS   Dover Street Market Window + T Shirt Collection

Chinese contemporary artist, Ai Wei Wei, has recently opened an exhibition at Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, and in celebration of the show, Rei Kawakubo’s COMME des GARÇONS has partnered up with the artist to rework the coveted Dover Street Market window space for the artist. The window space will be designed by Kawakubo herself, and the installation tribute will feature hundreds of Ai Wei Wei T-Shirts, portraits, art work and statements on 36 washing lines. Also, the duo will be releasing special collaborative t-shirts to commemorate the exhibition and the occasion, and they will be on sale for £15 on October 13, the day after Ai Wei Wei’s exhibition opens at Tate Modern.

In the mean time, check out Ai Wei Wei’s collection of profound tweets on Dover Street Market, and do look out for a special pamphlet to drop next Wednesday alongside the t-shirts and the new window!
