Already earlier this summer we unveiled the plans of Japanese brand COMME des GARCONS to open a new Dover Street Market concept store in New York, after having started the concept in London and recently having brought it to Tokyo’s Ginza district as well.
The brand has signed a lease for a new 20,000-square-foot, seven-story emporium at 160 Lexington Avenue at 30th Street in Chelsea. Previously the New York School of Applied Design for Women and the Touro College, the new DSM location will open its doors December 2o13.
Dover Street Market is definitely a store that is missing in the NYC retail landscape. We will keep you posted on the project.
