Dover Street Market Gets Creative With Felix Art Fair Merch

Attendees of next week’s Felix Art Fair at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel can anticipate seeing much more than blue-chip art on the walls. Dover Street Market is teaming up with the fair to offer an exclusive lineup of apparel, accessories, and footwear that matches a star-studded roster of visual artists with the high-fashion retailer’s range of labels. The collaborations, set to be released daily throughout the fair, are nothing short of compelling. David Hammons teamed with Denim Tears on a pair of Converse that fuse his African-American flag design with Marcus Garvey’s pan-African flag. Parley for the Oceans teamed with artists such as Jenny Holzer and Julian Schnabel to produce limited-edition tote bags made from ocean plastic. Perhaps the biggest draw: Comme des Garçons’ transient Black Market will make its fourth appearance outside Japan inside an Oscar Tuazon intervention located in the hotel’s ballroom. —Ryan Waddoups

Brandon Zech, Leslie Moody Castro, and Gabriel Martinez talk about the 2024 editions of the Dallas Art Fair and the Dallas Invitational.
