COMME DES GARCONS store in NY
At the first sight, a vast field of scaffoldings pipes on the frontage building for refurbishment! Who notices the beautiful store located in the trendy heart of the meatpacking district in New York… by luck, aficionados surf on familiar grounds and know exactly where they have to go, as the store is just amazing. It’s worth it!

Stroll down to 22nd Street then pass through the huge pivoting door and jagged aluminum tunnel into the cavernous home of Comme Des Garçons…

DOVER STREET MARKET New York

A shopping mecca in which street-wear and high-end design are intertwined, Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market is now open in New York.  The seven-floor luxury department store takes visitors on a whimsical exploration of avant-garde fashion design from designers such as Simone Rocha to Jacquemus, all woven into the story of Kawakubo’s own line, Comme des Garçons. With no clear differentiation between women and men’s collections, visitors are encouraged to explore the store with an unconstricted outlook. Non-fashion related attractions include specially commissioned artworks that can be found throughout the store as well as a Rose Bakery pop up on the first floor.  Kawakubo gave designers creative freedom to model their respective spaces in a manner that architecturally represents the designs; a key highlight being the permanent Prada space enveloped by large scale Pierre Mornet murals pursuant to the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. In Kawakubo’s own words, Dover Street Market will exist as “an ongoing atmosphere of beautiful chaos”.

Little Black Dress

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013



Organized by the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art and curated by Vogue contributing editor André Leon Talley, Little Black Dress charts the historic and contemporary significance of a singular sartorial phenomenon. Featuring approximately fifty garments from a selection of veteran fashion designers and those of the international Best-Dressed List (including Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Comme des Garçons, Miuccia Prada, Tom Ford, Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren…) The exhibition highlights the strength of individualism, charting the evolution of the little black dress from its native definition of invariable propriety, to new and distinctly contemporary explorations of texture, tone and silhouette.
