In an article published today by the New York Times, we find out that COMME des GARCONS is currently searching locations in New York City to open its next Dover Street Market multi-brand store. Most likely to open in 2013 earliest, this would mark the 3rd DSM store by the Japanese brand, after just opening the second one in Ginza, Tokyo. The first one is in London and its location also gave the name to the store series.
“““The New York DSM will be in an area where there are no other fashion stores so that we can give a totally new identity and hence transform the area — like we did in SoHo and Chelsea,” said Adrian Joffe, Ms. Kawakubo’s husband and executive partner, speaking in Paris.””
We will of course keep you posted as we hear more about the opening.
