Products are a reflection of the culture they are created in and one of the best parts of travelling is being able to bring home items from diverse foreign cultures. Tiger Beer was Singapore’s first locally brewed beer and they have brought some great products from across Asia together for a special New York pop-up store. Tiger Beer has turned the storefront of 343 Canal St. into Tiger Trading Co; a carefully curated pop-up with over 800 items that span design, fashion, artwork, and technology. The items include rare products from labels including Opening Ceremony, Undercover, Neighborhood, Head Porter and Snow Peak. The items originate from countries including China, Vietnam and South Korea. The best part about the experience is that visitors can take home something from the store absolutely free.
The Black Soft is best known for being a band, but the members Chase and Joey are involved in a variety of projects across disciplines. They worked with Nicola Formichetti on a MAC Cosmetics commercial last year. Recently they provided the artwork for the Religion UK pop-up on Broome St (which closed earlier this month). The black and white paintings caught my attention.
