Tyler, the Creator's Golf Wang Seoul pop-up opened its doors last September and stunned Korean fashion fans with its mix of quirky and colorful merchandise. In addition to color-coded baseball jerseys and Tyler's signature candy-colored t-shirts, the shop was also home to collectible mugs, notebooks and baseball caps inspired by the star's Cherry Bomb album release.
The successful pop-up showcased Golf Wang's growing collection of alternative streetwear and stayed true to its designer's personal sense of style -- always playful while retaining a sense of comfort and wearability.
More than 500 people visited the South Korean pop-up and enjoyed a live DJ set as well as an appearance by Tyler, the Creator himself who participated in a meet-and-greet with fans.
