US designer Thom Browne has launched a pop-up Surf Shop at Tokyo’s Dover Street Market.

The pop-up installation, which has also featured in DSM in London last November, celebrates the inspiration for the New York-based designer’s s/s 2017 catwalk show, which was held in an indoor pool in West Chelsea on Manhattan.

The DSM Tokyo version inhabits the store’s Elephant Room and includes the distinctive pool-style blue tiling on floors and walls as a backdrop to the piece.

Male and female mannequins are displayed in lines, wearing pieces from the collection and holding the longboards that were carried around by models in the original show.

The surfboards are not just props for the pop-up showcase, they are special edition printed boards and all are available for purchase.
