Good news: You won’t have to travel all the way to Seoul to get some eyewear from Korea’s coolest cult brand Gentle Monster pretty soon. We announced some time back that the celeb favourite would be arriving on our shores soon, and now it has an official launch date. The store will open next Tuesday, 26 September, at ION Orchard, so you can head on over to explore the specially designed space. We were lucky enough to be the first few to experience the store sans crowd, but it’s very likely it won’t stay that way for long — grab your friends and head on down as soon as possible.
