GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE: Dover Street Market just can’t get enough of Giambattista Valli. After the successful launch last month of Valli’s shop-in-shop at the retailer’s London headquarters, the designer will launch a three-and-a-half week pop-up shop at the New York location from March 28 to April 22.
Located on the ground floor of the Comme des Garçons-owned concept store, the pop-up — which will have pink walls like his Paris and Milan boutiques, as well as fixtures designed by Valli — will offer exclusive clothing, accessories and fragrances. Some items — like a demi-couture silk dress and an exclusive handbag style — will be customizable. The shop will also sell the designer’s iconic “pretty-ugly” sandal, for $995, as well as two Giambattista Valli by Cire Trudon candle scents, Positano and Rose Poivrée.
