After 12 years in Mayfair, Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo’s ground-breaking six-storey Dover Street Market is no more, as the team have upped sticks and relocated down the road to Haymarket.
The beautiful new store, which opened on Saturday, is roughly three times as big as the old one – that means three times as many absurdly amazing clothes from the likes of Valentino, Givenchy and Rei Kawakubo protégé Junya Watanabe. The new space continues to house all 14 Commes labels, in addition to relative newcomers Molly Goddard and Simone Rocha, which we can but dream of owning. It’s not all impossibly unaffordable though, there will be some piggy-bank-smashing-worthy collaborations like DSM x Vans and DSM x Timberland.
The new address is 18-22 Haymarket, SW1Y 4DG. Find out more at doverstreetmarket.com.
