Next Tuesday, July 25, G-Dragon—the South Korean superstar musician and fashion plate—will bring his arthouse engine, Peaceminusone, to the U.S. for the very first time with a six-day pop-up at Miami Beach’s Alchemist boutique.
Peaceminusone, which G-Dragon runs with his close collaborator Gee Eun, acts, essentially, as a working extension of the singer’s image—a manifestation of the style and aesthetic that has garnered the man tens of millions of fans in his home continent of Asia, and a growing base here in the States. Apparently, G-Dragon has as much fashion clout as Kanye West or Kate Middleton—if he wears something, it sells out by day’s end.
“This dude is literally more powerful than anyone I can think of,” says Alchemist’s Roma Cohen, who, cleverly of late, has tampered with the convention of what it means to run a high-end boutique by launching an Alchemist clothing line, creating more “experiential” shopping models, and trimming way back on brands stocked. Peaceminusone will take over Alchemist’s Miami Beach space—housed five floors up in a neo-Brutalist Herzog and de Meuron parking garage—for the duration of the event, wrapping its windows in color sheaths and installing artworks.
Of course, too, there will be product for sale, including one-off tie-dye pieces alongside a selection of hoodies, pants, caps, bucket hats, and jewelry. G-Dragon is currently in the U.S. as part of his Act III, M.O.T.T.E World Tour—syncing nicely with the pop-up launch, he will perform at Miami’s American Airlines arena on July 25. Says the man of the hour with typical brevity: Peaceminusone’s goal, in Miami and in all of its projects, is about turning “the imaginary into reality.”
BIGBANG | Their Dancer s/o Does Sexy Choreography With Another Idol Group
Big bang (+ vixx if you aren’t busy) reaction to their dancer s/o being apart of a sexy choreography with another idol group? :) i really love your blog! All your stories are great xx
G Dragon/Jiyong: He wouldn’t even be paying attention to the fact that it was a sexy choreography, he’d more so be questioning why you were dancing with another group. “Who approved this? Last time I checked Y/N only danced for BIGBANG and on my solo tours….”
“Ji…what’s with the face?” you questioned, seeing him looking around very confused.
“You’re doing choreography with Mino…and a sexy concept?” he questioned.
“Oh…yeah…one of his backups was sick and I was randomly chosen,” you said, “Luck of the draw…”
“Right…luck of the draw.”
T.O.P./Seunghyun: *pouty glare* “Y/N never told me about this…his hands seem a bit low…”
“Oh, you’re watching the performance from last week,” you said, walking into the practice room and seeing Seunghyun on his laptop, “Sorry I didn’t tell you about that…”
“He seems a little too handsy,” he said.
“It was part of the choreo, don’t think too much on it.”
Taeyang/Youngbae: Since you convienietly forgot to tell him this, as his “payback”. He pays a little closer attention to one of the other one of his backup dancers.
“If I had told you, you would’ve gotten all protective and not wanted me to dance with another group…but since I didn’t you’re being a giant pain in the ass and paying more attention to one of your other backup dancers,” you said.
“I was just checking the other talent that I had…ya never know…you might decide to spend more time dancing for iKON…”
“Green is not a good color for you Youngbae…it was just a dance.”
Daesung: “I got an offer to do some choreography with another group…I know I normally just BIGBANG and your solo tours, but this is a chance to spread my wings a bit,” you said wanting to break your good news gently to Dae, saying as he might not take it as well.
“That’s great, Y/N…who are you working with?” he questioned, feeling excited for you.
“Well…I’m being loaned out for one of Jay Park’s videos,” you said with a smile. His smile slightly faded from his face and you grew concerned. “You okay?”
“Yep, I’m great,” he said, forcing a smile, “I’m really happy for you, Y/N.”
Seungri: “Y/N! Hey, hi, how’s the choreo going?” Seungri questioned, showing up at the MV set to spy on what was happening.
“What are you doing here?” you questioned.
“I brought you lunch,” he replied, holding up the take-out back, “Whaaaat are you wearing?”
You looked down at your outfit, or lack there of and rolled your eyes. “It’s not like I’m flashing anyone so will you-”
“If that skirt goes up any further, you will be…now would you put some clothes on?”
