Gentle Monster and Fendi debut a café pop-up in Seoul, Korea: Of stylish Instagrammable interiors and cute pastries
These days, the mention of a pop-up triggers the harmartia in our state of nonchalance. Add to that, a famous duo of luxury and street: Fendi and Gentle Monster, and our attention peaks. In lieu of Gentle Fendi peepers, which rolled out recently, much to the delight of the fashion cognoscenti; comes a stunning food and drink pop-up — Garden Café.
While the stunning stark white building isn't erected in our city, it's reasonably close. Centered in Seoul's vibrant district, Gangnam, the collaborative pop-up chimes of New Mexico nuances with statement cactus plants, lavender soil and summery daybeds. A dream for the 'Gram and of course edible merch in the form of Gentle Fendi popsicles and desserts crafted by the in-house pastry chefs of Gentle Monster.
Of course, while you're there, peruse the collection — within the store that's just behind. We're pretty sure squeezing in a trip to Seoul this summer wouldn't be too much of an issue. Not for Gentle Fendi's delectable treats, that is.
The Gentle Monster x Fendi cafe will open from May 8 to July 29. Closed on Mondays.
