Dover Street Market

25th March, 2014

I rarely find myself in the city on a Saturday, so this past weekend’s in-town adventure was the first chance I’ve had to check out the three-month-old NY outpost of Dover Street Market (on the corner of 30th Street & Lexington Ave). A concept shop with preexisting locations in Tokyo and London, DSM is curated by Rei Kawakubo and stocks otherwise hard to find indie labels out of Europe and Japan, alongside exclusive collaborations with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Prada, Alaia and a whole lotta Comme des Garçons (my favorite of late!).

It’s a seven-story, treehouse-like space filled with playful, childlike interior touches, plus stacks of serious, advanced fashion. It makes shopping feel like an artistic experience, renders luxury unintimidating and big-brand-browsing feel refreshingly fun.DoverStreetMarket2|ABOVE| a playground for fashion-minded grownups!
