The only thing important to me is making clothes.” (Rei Kawabuko, founder Comme des Garçons)
I’ve already mentioned my love of Comme des Garçons to you in a past post (here!). And, now that LM and I are definitely tootling off to Paris and London in September for a wee sojourn, I can really let loose on my retail fantasy world (because usually I am so circumspect about it, yes?). I gotta’ say, Dover Street Market is pretty high on my list (along with Liberty, Deyrolle, Epice), if for nothing else than to salivate over the ever-so-stylish wares.
The latest launch is the Comme des Garçons Shirt x Star Wars collaboration. It features iconic imagery from the legendary films. I’m really quite interested in having a look-see at the collection (despite not being a massive Star Wars fan). I find it an interesting partnership – I was 9 when the first Star Wars film was released, which makes me old, so there is a definite retro feel to this range.
Flicking through the Dover Street Market web-site, there are a few wee bits ‘n’ bobs I’m keen to see…
And, I didn’t even get started on the mens selection.
Dover Street Market can be found at 17 – 19 Dover Street, London W1S 4LT. If you aren’t in the neighbourhood, their online store can be accessed here.
