The way we shop in stores is fast evolving in many different ways. 'Experiential' may be an overused word in the retail industry, but it is crucial to attract and engage with modern customers today. By introducing pop-ups and interesting partnership with labels, stores like Dover Street Market Singapore provide a new form of shopping experience for their customers by inspiring them with a world of art and storytelling. Just step into their store at Dempsey Hill, and a Rei Kawakubo installation will greet you with neon lights. There is also a pop-up section featuring every skaters' favourite brand Stussy. Other labels that are launching exclusively with an SS21 limited-edition collection include DSM Converse Jack Purcell CDG x Vans Old Skool, LX Dada x D’heygere, Converse x Carhartt WIP, Gucci DSM Specials, i-D 40th Anniversary, Stüssy Laguna Beach Parfum and Year of the Ox SS21 collections. SS21 collections and new arrivals are now available in-store at Dover Street Market Singapore and on the DSMS E-SHOP.
Given how often it gets mentioned by sports commentators, it’s remarkable that Hadrian’s Wall has never actually marked the Anglo-Scottish border. Indeed – although it comes within an eloping couple of Gretna – at other points it lies over 60 miles distant. More remarkable still is that many south (and even north) of the border don’t realise that Scotland has its own Hadrian’s Wall in the shape of the 39-mile Vallum Antonini. The Antonine Wall stands alongside its more illustrious sibling on Unesco’s World Heritage list; unheralded, begging exploration. As a Scot I am ashamed to admit I had traced the Romans from Amiens to Zurich, but not delved deep into ‘our wall’; not until the Covid cage enclosed us all, forcing more local adventures. Of course I knew the Romans from school. Unlike the World Wars they were not black and white, their blood-red tunics seared in my imagination. I learned of wolves as unlikely parents, but never dreamt the very northern frontier of the Roman Empire – the last frontier wall the Romans ever built – lay largely ignored a few miles from my front door.
