The eyewear brand's latest work is inspired by alien life searching for a home in the universe

There are Korean concept stores, and then there's Gentle Monster. The label that's found major traction outside its home country sells experiences — by way of installations – as much as it does eyewear. The latest, 'Passenger', to occupy the ground floor of Dover Street Market New York (DSMNY). 

Inspired by life forms travelling in search of a new, inhabitable planet, the act of foraging for resources along the way and, landing in unfamiliar territory, 'Passenger' freezes in time the journey — inviting visitors to the installation to put themselves in such shoes. Along with the art, a range of Gentle Monster eyewear pieces will be available, including the DSMNY exclusive pictured below. 

Now till 19 June 2018. Located at Dover Street Market New York, 160 Lexington Avenue.
