Twice a year in January and July, Dover Street Market closes to the public for a few days as Comme des Garçons creative director Rei Kawakubo leads a project called New Beginning, where designers reconfigure and redesign their allocated space at the eight-floor, 25,000-square-foot store at 160 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, and fill it with new merchandise for the season.
