Dover Street Market reopens with an all-new storefront and installations for their AW’19 collection.
The collections available include Nike x Stranger Things, CDG Play and a special Gucci x Dover Street Market collab.
Dover Street Market has revamped its store for the AW’19 collection with a new storefront installation specifically chosen by Rei Kawakubo. The installation complements the new collection which comprises some new hyped pieces and more avant-garde outfits.
Here are some of the new items and installations you should definitely check out.
Comme des Garçons
It’s hard to miss the Commes des Garçons presence at the entrance of the store. The giant black statue of the installation contrasts the hard lines of the racks with the soft flow of the apparel. This section features monochrome black pieces from the recent CDG collection that focus more on fabrics and cuts.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, a second CDG installation showcases a mix of colorful, comic art inspired T-shirts mixed with black, punk outfits. The contrast is intended to highlight the fun and joy that can come from dark spaces, by playing with differing cuts, materials, and accessories.
DSM is stocking two new prints featuring the new CDG Play logo. A take on the original, the new logo features two hearts – one small, the other big. The designs are available on both long sleeved and short sleeved tees, in both grey and red. The collection also includes accessories like wallets.
Nike x Stranger Things
A collab between Nike and Netflix’s Stranger Things brings a collection of Nike staples that pay tribute to the 80s. DSM has brought in the Air Tailwind and Cortez from the collaboration to help you step back into the summer of ’85. The sneakers feature custom colors reflecting Hawkins High School and the popular colorways of the era.
At the back of the house, there is a new T-shirt bar that features a bunch of new brands – like Aries, Awake and Bianca Chandon – curated for this season. From simple, monotone designs to full acid washed tees, there is a variety of designs to fit any taste or outfit. It’s worth checking out to find a new brand to fall in love with.
Gucci x Dover Street Market
The Gucci x DSM collection is primarily streetwear- and tennis-inspired. Beyond the usual Gucci Rhyton, the collection also includes Gucci sandals and hiker sneakers in bright colors.
The exclusive DSM collection features denim jackets and dresses embroidered with the DSM logo. The logo fits perfectly and thoughtfully into the designs – the dress in the collection bears the logo in hand-stitched sequins. Check this collection out if you are looking for something more exclusive from the Italian designer.
As is usual with DSM, keep an eye out for items with a red tag – hidden gems that are exclusive to the store. Dover Street Market’s AW’19 curation brings nothing but heat and can contribute some new pieces to your rotation whatever your style.
