Dover Street Market and Rei Kawakubo

Dover Street Market and Rei Kawakubo

I have been fascinated with a concept store in London, Also based out of Ginza Japan and New York USA.

Dover Street Market is a fashion retail store created by Rei Kawakubo of Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons. It is located in Dover Street, Mayfair, London, and offers all kinds of products born from collaborations between Comme des Garcons and different designers, but it also features products from Rei Kawakubo herself.


“I want to create a kind of market where various creators from various fields gather together and encounter each other in an ongoing atmosphere of beautiful chaos: the mixing up and coming together of different kindred souls who all share a strong personal vision.” – Rei Kawakubo


So far I received three CDG Play shirts from Dover Street market. This is only the beginning of a collection. The cool factor is that Rei and Dover Street Market have already done the pre-selection for me, by carrying items on which you really cannot demonstrate any lack of taste.
