LONDON — The Dover Street Market store here marks its 10th anniversary next week, and, to celebrate the milestone, Rei Kawakubo’s retail emporium is staging a series of events and installations and launching a raft of special products, which all made their debut on Monday.
Alongside a space dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s fall collection, which opened on the store’s first floor in August and will remain standing for the entire fall season, there is a Nike Lab space carrying an edited range of sneakers, including the store’s collaboration with the activewear brand on a Blazer Low shoe, done in plain white with a Dover Street Market logo at the heel. There is also a Good Design Shop in the store’s basement, a collaboration between Comme des Garçons and the Japanese homewares firm D & Department, which carries simple and functional stationery and home items. The London Good Design Shop follows the opening of a similar unit in Dover Street Market’s New York store.
