LA’s Felix Art Fair, Dover Street Market Tap David Hammons, KAWS, Sterling Ruby, Lauren Halsey, and More for Collaborative Projects

Ahead of the opening of its 2024 edition next week, the Felix Art Fair in Los Angeles has announced a partnership with Dover Street Market, the retailer cofounded by Comme des Garçon’s Rei Kawakubo, that will see a selection of art-and-fashion collaborations sold at the fair.

The partnership will see closely watched artists partner with top fashion brands, including Oscar Tuazon with Comme des Garçons and Felix, KAWS with Sky High Farm Workwear and Nike, David Hammons with Denim Tears, Sterling Ruby with Vans, and the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts with Brain Dead. There will also be a collaboration between Levi’s and OTTO 958, a project by London-based fashion designer Kiko Kostadinov and LA art dealer Al Morán, who is also a cofounder of Felix.

At the fair, the DSM store will be located in a site-specific structure created by Tuazon in the hotel’s ballroom.

Similarly, Total Luxury Spa Artist Series will present T-shirts and hoodies with designs by the likes of Lauren Halsey, Cauleen Smith, Cyprien Gaillard, and Meriem Bennani, while Parley for the Oceans will offer tote bags made from ocean plastic by artists like Ed Ruscha, Jenny Holzer, Katherina Grosse, Julian Schnabel, Doug Aitken, and David LaChappelle.

The fair, which runs February 28 to March 3 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, will also feature a dedicated space, designed by Kawakubo, to showcase wares from Comme des Garçon’s Black Market, which sells the brand’s black-colored collaborations.

Also available within this curated shopping section are pieces from the Spring/Summer 2024 collections of several Comme des Garçon labels, as well as Barbara Sánchez-Kane, Rick Owens, JW Anderson, Marc Jacobs, Charles Jeffrey, Chopova Lowena, Adidas, and more.

“Dover Street Market has a rich history of integrating art, and artists, into its world and the thought of blending their community with our community felt very exciting to me,” Morán told ARTnews. “Every decision made throughout this process has centered around art. Specifically, in respecting Oscar Tuazon’s vision for his sculptural installation which is at the heart of this project. It feels like we are breaking new ground with this partnership, and I’m genuinely thrilled to welcome visitors to experience this collaboration between Felix and Dover Street Market.”
