MONSTER HIGH: French department store Printemps is joining forces with Kenzo for a pop-up store at its Boulevard Haussmann flagship from Aug. 28 to Oct. 18.

The atrium space will sell about 30 exclusive products and prereleases from the Kenzo fall collection designed by creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. They include a unisex Tiger sweatshirt priced 335 euros, or $455 at current exchange, and a Multi Icons tote bag that retails for 195 euros, or $265.

Five of the store’s windows will display the collection, inspired by the films of David Lynch, in what the store promises will be a “deliberately disturbing, offbeat atmosphere” offsetting its key Monster and Broken Floor prints. Printemps will also host gourmet and cultural happenings in tandem with the brand.
