AC. III.T Bowling & Pub
Still in the YG Republique in Jeju Shinhwa World, this bowling and pub alley is located just beside G-Dragon’s Untitled, 2017 café. AC.III.T (pronounced ACT), the Bowling Pub that G-Dragon also had a hand in planning and designing, recently opened at the end of March 2019.
Not only is G-dragon an influential figure in the music industry, but he also has a strong passion for fashion and style. He is known for his authentic style during performances, and he often speaks about the connection between his music and his fashion sense. He once said, “When I create a song, I immediately think about what I’m going to wear when I perform that song. I think about the music video treatment and about how I’m going to look on stage when I perform the record. The connection is so obvious that it’s a single package. An outfit, to me, is almost a tool to express the music.”
His involvement in the clothing design began in 2013 when he partnered with Ambush for a special collaborative release which included apparel and accessories. The collection highlighted G-Dragon’s signature crest by utilizing the design throughout the entire release. In the next year, G-Dragon partnered with Chow Tai Fook Enterprises jewelry and launched a collection designed by himself.
He opened his first art exhibition in 2015 under the name Peaceminusone: Beyond the Stage. The exhibition features 200 works of art from 12 domestic and international artists including Michael Scoggins, Sophie Clements, and James Clar. He prepared the exhibition for over a year, with the aim to bring modern art and pop culture together in order to “introduce domestic artists to the public, who are unfamiliar with art or who find art unapproachable.” The show was held at the Seoul Museum of Art from June 6th to August 23rd, 2015.
In 2016, he collaborated with the brand 8 Seconds, part of the Samsung C&T Fashion Group, designing his first street fashion collection. The collection featured innovative “genderless” designs, suitable for both men and women. In October the same year, G-Dragon launched his personal fashion brand, Peaceminusone, with his long-time stylist Gee Eun as an online store, with a collection that includes tees, caps, jewelry, and in-ear headphones. Later, the line was launched as a physical store at the Dover Street Market in London and in Seoul.
G-Dragon’s brand, Peaceminusone, collaborated with Ambush in November for a capsule collection of denim pieces, marking his third collaboration with the label.
In 2017, G-Dragon began doing pop-up shops for his brand which started in Seoul. He then teamed up with the boutique called Alchemist to launch a six-day pop-up in Miami. While on his second world tour (Act III: M.O.T.T.E) he continued to make pit stops, to do pop-up shops in places like Osaka and Hong Kong. Later that year he collaborated with Vogue to do another pop-up shop in Seoul, selling limited edition Peaceminusone X Vogue apparel. He also launched a collaboration with French retailer Colette which was made available to purchase on his online store.
On November 23rd, at 7 p.m. KST, G-Dragon officially kicked off his post-military activities by making a personal appearance at a private fashion event in Seoul, where he participated in a “Live Art Performance” with sports brand Nike.
There were around 50 celebrities in attendance of the event, including actor and G-Dragon’s new brother-in-law Kim Min Joon, iKON‘s Donghyuk, Kwon Hyun Bin, Bong Tae Gyu, Lee Sang Yoon, Lee Jin Wook, model Soo Joo, Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon, Lee Chung Ah, Heize, AKMU, Giriboy, and more.
With the powerful response to his new collaboration with Nike, G-Dragon has demonstrated his considerable influence and ability to impact the fashion scene. On top of receiving attention for the incredible popularity of his new sneakers and the frenzy over raffle tickets, his unique way of tying his shoes is also making waves.
