a week before I have received the update from my friends Dennis, I was able to prepare thanks to his help. I hear the IKEA location will be releasing this collection. still some of his last few items like his carpet were released at an exclusive pop up event.,
the best thing I plan to do is be in the line earliest I can , I woke up around 4:30am and arrived around 5:30am and the line already busy.
It was a very chilling morning and I didnt prepare a jacket for the event. Many people are already lined up since mid midnight, they brought their chair ready to camp for this event.
Event was handling very well , the IKEA employee was checking everyone if they are doing okay or if they need go to the bathroom. They even had security to make sure of everyones safety.
By 7AM, people Began receiving the wristband for the event in line.
After receiving your wristband, you were able to walk around and get some food and drinks .
Saw this awesome sacai blazer in person. Really love the details in the design.
They only allowed a small group in for shopping in the 2nd floor. They made the event with a DJ in hand and some event staff to help answer any questions.
When you wait for the line, they also gave you a special treat.
First one that was gone was the Mona Lisa, an unique wall canvas with USB light up. For sure Virgil will able to reuse this world-famous painting on this collection. everyone is trying to get this one. They sold out as soon as we arrived.
The display furniture was something I really loved. The simple natural wood colors.
The chair frame is made of solid wood, which is a durable natural material. The clear-lacquered surface is easy to wipe clean. May be completed with FIXA stick-on floor protectors to protect the underlying surface against wear. $149.00
Another popular item was the “wet Grass” carpet. I love the texture and colors.
Testing a sneaker shoot, the color has some color depth from light to dark.
The toolbox set is next to the DJ, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take details pics.
Another item was a big rug with an IKEA receipt printed on it.
In person, the clock is very nice and the size was much bigger than I was expecting.
bag section. remember the Comme des Garcons did a SHIRT PVC Kraft Paper Messenger Tote Bag, is very close with this collection design, CDG one for sure will be better quality.
MARKERAD daybed is Virgil Abloh’s tribute to Scandinavian design and is a multifunctional platform for a home in constant motion. As he himself says: “Dreams come true when you don’t sleep” $130.00
Glass-door cabinet, pine, 31 1/2×31 1/2 ” With a glass-door cabinet, you can show off as well as protect your glassware or your favorite collection. Solid wood has a natural feel. We recommend you secure this furniture to the wall with the enclosed safety device to prevent it from tipping over.
Different wall materials require different types of fasteners. Use fasteners suitable for the walls in your home. $199.99
Finally I got everything I need. Time to go down stairs for check out. Check my cart.
During the shopping time, the Mona Lisa was gone. The person next to me has one and he let me check the details.
The person who is front of me has a nice Kanye bear custom Yeezy 350. He told me he customized by himself.
I think I got home around 11:30 AM. so I have time to relaxed and take a hot shower and nap.
So sure I got the MARKERAD 17-piece toolset, I think the box is nice with clear see-through plastic cover lids. the original set was from the Designer: H Preutz , you can get the same one with cheaper price for alternative
Comprises Hammer with separate rubber casing, adjustable spanner, combination pliers, bits screwdriver with bits for slotted, cross-headed, allen screws and bradawl. Designer: H Preutz/V Abloh
I was in the line most peoples are looking for Powder-coated steel, polystyrene plastic, and glass.MARKERAD wall clock, the simple minimal design. this original design by Virgil Abloh
Details of the clock: Time never stands still. You can’t stop it, it’s an endless moment of the present. This white wall clock with a clean design encourages us to reflect on time and what it means, Highly accurate at keeping time as it is fitted with a quartz movement.

The next item is the most hype item, The wet grass rug, high pile 100% polypropylene. W133×L195cm. many of them was shock after they find out the real retail price and some of them immediately lost their purchase interests.
Details: This rug embraces a playful twist of the notion of indoors versus outdoors that reflects the mobility of a modern home. The result is a functional product that is also a work of art, Use STOP anti-slip underlay under the entire rug for increased safety. $249
before the official release many IG post are posting the medium, natural, 9 gallons $19.99 Shopping bag, this design was adding quotation marks to words, Virgil Abloh takes them out of context in order to ironically challenge the viewer. What is the real difference between a handbag and a work of art?
Personally this bag size are much useful as daily bag, is much smaller and looks great.
I also cop the large size natural, 21 gallons Shopping bag, this bag also adding quotation marks to words. and was first time sneak peek in IKEAtoday event, he was hand build a prototype for this bag. most likely is samesize as Ikea blue shopping bag
The event was awesome! I was able meeting some local new friends who is interested in the hype stuff. Lots sneaker talk and street fashion. This reminds me of the old school sneaker line up and meeting new friends and supporting local street cultures. IKEA did a very good job for managing the event. Everything went very well . Everyone was chill and happy to cop their winning items.
