The rumbling of rumors can finally subside today as fashion house COMME des GARçONS confirms that its DOVER STREET MARKET New York storefront will be opening on Saturday, December 21. Located within the Murray Hill neighborhood of New York City, the 103-year-old Gothic Cathedral-like structure once housed the New York School of Applied Design for Women and more recently Touro College. Flanked by Indian restaurants, South East Asian marketplaces, and residential buildings of all sizes, the new store will likely to be the only fashion retail spot in the neighborhood, a fact that suits designer Rei Kawakubo just fine. With seven-levels and some 20,000 square-foot of space, the new DOVER STREET MARKET New York will be on the street corner of East 30th Street and Lexington Avenue.
