Early Retirement will feature exclusive event merchandise as well as Andy Warhol and Fragment [email protected] collectible toys, ‘80s Walkmans and more.
During the three-day festival, Early Retirement will feature a host of exclusive collaborations, event merchandise and Tokyo-sourced goods, all of which will be available in specially imported, automated retail vending machines.
Select highlights from the vending machine concept shop include Andy Warhol and Fragment [email protected] collectible toys, 8-Bit music composers, original 1980’s Walkmans, hip-hop tapes and much more. It will also feature exclusive merchandise created by Sole DXB including a 13-piece apparel collection as well as a two-piece collaboration with the lifestyle brand Wacko Maria.
“Object and space take on a new meaning in this visual piece for Sole DXB 2017, when a mystery object appears down alleyways of Al Rigga’s iconic China Sea restaurant, a Deira petrolstation perfectly preserved in a ‘90s Gulf chic and even the suburban outskirts of the Al Qudra desert,” says Amirah Tajdin, director, Sole DXB. “Thus, through a series of surreal juxtaposition, the viewer is transported across Dubai, following the zen like journey of what seems to be a vending machine.”
Sole DXB will take place Dec 7-9 in Dubai.
