This Valentines Day, ahead of the first large-scale presentation of his ongoing project, The Casual Pleasure of Disappointment, artist Bjarne Melgaard will be giving away his $500K personal collection of designer fashion and streetwear FREE of charge to the public, on a first come, first serve basis.
Shoppers will have 5-10 minutes to fill their custom MELGAARD garbage bags with as much as they can carry. Once their time is up, shoppers will be immediately evacuated from the premise. The hoard includes scores of pieces by Supreme, Margiela, Lanvin, Huff, Eckhaus Latta, Yohji Yamamoto, Stussy, Issey Miyake and Comme des Garcon — as well as 100+ pieces from the new MELGAARD streetwear collection, which makes its world debut within this purge. Here are the details:
