The long-awaited Dover Street Market Paris at 35-37 Rue des Francs-Bourgeois 75004, has announced they will be opening their doors on the 24th May 2024. Designed by Rei Kawakubo, including the café Rose Bakery, you won’t be able to see any clothing from the outside. The design lends itself to a journey of exploration. Kawakubo has frequently stated that the more customers are forced to labor to find items themselves, the better their sense of fulfillment will be. For the opening, An installation and an exhibition entitled “Comme des Garcons for and by Paolo Roversi” is planned for the opening along with an installation created by Matty Bovan in BF-1.

The layout will see the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors to house the DSMP Brand Development division while the two basements (BF-1 and BF-2) as well as the courtyard will entertain art, literary, music, and community events. For the past three years, the now defunct Association 3537 has occupied the building, but in a similar spirit, DSMP plans on inviting artists to artists to invade the store itself with exhibitions.

DSMP is therefore an experiment in the un-understanding of the next steps in our journey. It will not be only another shop. It is in fact already a building in which we hope to build and open a new pathway ahead, building on everything we have accomplished and daring to tread in the unknown. A building that already contains a brand development division and spaces to do all kinds of actions to create an energy-synergy syntax. And then the store itself, wedged between the upper floors and basements of the building, will look different since Rei Kawakubo has designed the whole space. No brand will have their own space. There will be no event spaces within the modules where the clothes will be housed. Nothing will be seen from the outside of what might become known as the space ship shop.” Were some of of heartwords by Adrian Joffe shared by DSMP.

Exclusive brands to France will include  All-In, Hodakova, Marina Yee, Paul Harnden, Elena Dawson, Melitta Baumeister, Johanna Parv, Chopova Lowena, Torisheju, Duran Lantink, Denim Tears, Independantes de Coeur, and Ponte.
