Dover Street Market, an edgy fashion retail and concept store conceived by Comme des GarçonsRei Kawakubo, will be opening its first Singapore outlet in Dempsey.

Kawakubo’s conceptual multi-brand retail outlet will be setting up shop in the near future as COMO Lifestyle recently purchased two blocks from the Singapore Land Authority and Singapore Tourism Board. Based on the plan laid out in COMO’s bid for the location, the DSM outpost will be incorporated alongside a bevy of food and beverage establishments as a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant and bar, local Peranakan restaurant Candlenut and new COMO Cuisine concept will all be located on the site.

A timetable for an opening is currently unknown so stay tuned for further details as they become available.

COMME des GARÇONS (Japan) Tote Bag

COMME des GARÇON has re-released its signature tote bag after selling out of all stock at the start of 2015. Made of PVC, the tote has the appearance of a paper bag and is upholstered on the inside for additional reinforcement. The bag’s charm intensifies the more it is worn, as the PVC creases like a real paper bag.

Able to brave all sorts of weather, it is set to retail for $60 USD and will be available from the Dover Street Market in Ginza as well as select stockists online.

Ai WeiWei x Dover Street Market x V MAGAZINE “Children of the Comme”

The latest project from Chinese artist Ai Weiwei comes courtesy of a box of designer pieces from emerging brands stocked at Dover Street Market to photograph for V Magazine. Given free reign to shoot “in whatever manner he chose,” the thought- provoking artist chose to stand the models on pedestals while wearing items from the likes of Hood By Air, Gosha Rubchinskiy and more, as buckets of paint were then poured onto their heads. These images were taken mid-pour and thus the chaotic yet beautiful nature of the splashes were frozen in time to create a compelling fashion editorial for the publication’s latest issue.

Enjoy the images and keep an eye out for the print to hit stockists on November 13.
