An installation on the first floor of the SSENSE store in the Vieux-Montréal district of Montreal commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Tabi boot. The north window display and door are covered with white acrylic latex paint, while a white neon tube sign hangs in the centre window. The lobby area features plastic covered mannequins, painted wood pallets, analog televisions, storage boxes, muslin wrapped chairs, and a vitrine displaying a pair of original white painted black Tabi boots (Spring/Summer 1989) from the Maison Margiela archive. In the main room, a partition wall structure is wrapped in a house gauze fabric that partially conceals a large podium presentation of the exclusive capsule collection.
