while the seasonal fashion hoopla unfolds in berlin, the city's leading avant-garde fashion emporium darklands celebrates creativity with a cool opening party all its own. on tue - jan 15 [6pm-10pm] it will reveal an intriguing new store installation by acclaimed artist jesper waldersten. one of sweden’s most in-demand illustrators and cutting satirist, waldersten rapidly made quite a name for himself with a distinct style that blends words, photos, music and drawing. this style is unpredictable, ingenious and can be unsettling at the same time, and very often provokes an instantaneous response from the viewer. on display at darklands is an emblematic series of the artist's work. this showcase will be accompanied by another installation for cherevichkiotvichki's collection of shoes, bags and accessories, created by london-based design practice studio toogood. location: heidestrasse 46-52, building 7 [tiergarten].
