Dover Street Market Opens In 1 Month
November 22, 2013
We have been waiting, and true to its promise that it would open beofre the end of the year, Dover Street Market will open its doors on December 21. The Saturday before Christmas is generally an odd date to debut a store what with it being right as pre-Holiday markdowns start to kick in, but Comme des Garçons, which owns the multibrand multi-level store, is clearly in it for the long haul, last-minute Christmas business be damned. We will soon know not whether customers will flock to the corner of 30th Street and Lexington Avenue for the store (We are pretty sure they will), but how, if at all, an exclusive luxury store will affect the surrounding, slightly sleepy Murray Hill neighborhood. Will there be a gentrifying DSM effect on Murray Hill?
Included in the announcement is a list of labels to be available at DSMNY, as this third iteration of the international chain will be abbreviated. Along with some of the usual suspects like all of the Comme des Garçons brands and other shoo-ins like Saint Laurent, Thom Browne and Azzedine Alaïa, there are a few intriguing, unfamiliar names on the list, which goes as follows:
A.P.C., Aganovich, Alex Da Corte, Alexander Wang, Andre Walker, Ann Demeulemeester, Arakawa and Gins, ATTO, Azzedine Alaïa, Bamford Watch Department, Black Comme des Garçons, Calxvive, Casely Hayford, Casey Casey, Christopher Kane, Comme des Garçons, Comme des Garçons Comme des Garcons, Comme des Garçons Homme, Comme des Garçons Homme Plus, Comme des Garçons Shirt, Comme des Garçons Shirt Girl, Daniela Gregis, DSM Bag Space, DSM Jewellery Space, DSM Showroom, DSM Sneaker Space, DSM Shoe Space, DSM Sunglass Space, DSM Wall Shop, Erdem, Ganryu, Giambattista Valli, Good Design Shop, Graham Hudson, Greg Lauren, Jil Sander, Jonathan Saunders, Julien David, Junya Watanabe, Junya Watanabe Man, Juun J, J.W. Anderson, Katerina Jebb, Lauren Kelly, Lena Lumelsky, Leo Sewell, Lewis Leathers, London Fieldworks, Louis Vuitton, Magda Sayeg, Mark Cooper, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Michael Costiff’s World Archive, Moscot, Nike, Nina Ricci, Noir Kei Ninomiya, Paco Rabanne, Peter Pilotto, Play Comme des Garçons, Prada, Raf Simons, Repossi, Rick Owens, Rose Bakery, Sacai, Saint Laurent, Simone Rocha, Supreme, Thom Browne, tricot Comme des Garçons, Undercover, Visvim, Yang Li and many, many more…
It's an interesting, eclectic mix. We can't wait to see how it all shakes out when it opens, so join us in marking our calendar for Saturday the 21st.
