Nothing stokes the fire of desire like the prospect of unavailability. That is, when Gallery Dept. founder Josué Thomas announced that the brand would be closing its doors a few months back, we began writing a list of all the pieces we have to own before we don’t have the possibility anymore. Luckily, Gallery Dept. stockists continue to sell stock but make no mistake, once it’s gone, it’s really gone.

One such stockist is Luisaviaroma. The Italian retailer still has some of the label’s best work to date in stock, including a bunch of pieces from the Lanvin x Gallery Dept. collaboration that signaled the climax of this brand’s shortlived story arc.

Founded in 2017, Gallery Dept. covered a lot of ground in very little time. Dressing names like Migos, LeBron James, and Virgil Abloh in its signature paint-splattered pieces, the brand grew to renown quickly despite its opaque PR tactics: in the sense that there wasn’t any, really.

If you knew, you knew. That was always the philosophy for Gallery Dept., a philosophy that’s all too rare nowadays. So, in honor and remembrance of this enigmatic label, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best Gallery Dept. sneakers and pieces still available at Luisaviaroma.

While most of the brand's clothing features bold painted details, this jersey polo cuts against the grain with a simple finish. Just a text logo to the reverse calls for attention.

It's harder than you might think to make a perfect cap. This is it. Chenille detailing to the front complements the clean white cotton construction for a retro varsity feel.

Small Leather Bag

Buy at Luisaviaroma

While Gallery Dept. sneakers often stole the limelight, we were always attracted to the brand's accessories. This small leather shoulder bag combines Lanvin's traditional leather know-how with the masterful detailing GD was known for.

Silk Scarf

With the number of colors and bold aspects that characterized the collections, working GD into an outfit can be difficult. Opting for a small flash of energy like this silk scarf is a nice way to ease open the styling door.
