CANADA MIXES GUERRILLA RETAIL AND VIDEO ART IN BERLIN
A new pop-up just popped up in Berlin, and the website features some lovely video art from fellow Canadian Jesse Kanda.
Darklands is the latest menswear concept from retail ringmaster Campbell McDougall. Similar to the Komakino series of temporary shops he initiated in basements and abandoned spots around Vancouver, finding the store is part of the fun. In order to get to the Berlin shop on Gormanstrasse 7, you must enter through the Seven Star Gallery and make a few wrong turns before located the sleek selections of Italian and Japanese labels in the back.
