LONDON — Louis Vuitton is collaborating with Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market in London, New York and Tokyo to open temporary boutiques to showcase its fall collection.
The spaces, which all open Friday, will spotlight what Louis Vuitton described as “an edit of directional pieces” from the collection designed by its artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière. The boutiques will also carry runway accessories including leather goods, fashion jewelry, sunglasses and shoes. Adrian Joffe, chief executive officer of Comme des Garçons, said he believes the boutiques “will have a great impact, like all the events we have, although this one is particularly exciting.”
