On Thursday 30th October Goodhood will be hosting a Heather Grey Wall Pop-Up event in the store. Heather Grey Wall is a destination store in Tokyo that houses and sells items designed by Kazuki Kuraishi, alongside his favourite everyday lifestyle products.
“The act of observing products has always inspired my creative output. I love shopping, and whenever I travel abroad or in Japan, I will go around checking out shops if I have time. Heather Grey Wall is also based on that mindset, and I want this concept shop to continue to introduce quality products extending to all my customers.”
Kazuki will be in attendance on the night, alongside artist Lucas Price, whom together run one of our favourite labels, A.Four. The A.Four fall collection will be releasing to co-incide with the pop up space, alongside a collaborative book, the A.Four x Ryan Gander collection and a Goodhood collaboration T-Shirt, all fully exclusive to us in the UK. Stay tuned to the site for more info in the coming days.
