The good news? The release date for Virgil Abloh’s MARKERAD collection with Ikea is set for the 31 October release in Singapore. The bad news? You will most likely not be able to get your hands on anything, since there will probably be a queue 1000-strong by the time you show up in the morning.
And while the collection will only be available at both Ikea stores in Singapore (Alexandra and Tampines), you might still have a chance since everyone will only be allowed a 2-piece quota (plus 4 dining chairs) each from the MARKERAD limited-edition collection.
What to buy, you ask? Well, the “WET GRASS” for starters, the dining chair, the toolkit that says “HOMEWORK”, the LED lightbox featuring Mona Lisa’s mug and of course, the clock that has “TEMPORARY” on it, which is quite poignant since our time on this earth is temporary after all.
