Market Report

Nearly a decade after cult label Comme des Garçons descended on London with its Dover Street Market—housing a podlike array of similarly moody brands—the Epcot of concept shops finally lands Stateside on December 21 (160 Lexington Ave., at 30th St.; 646-837-7750). Pierced by a transparent elevator and three massive columns, each designed by a different artist, the schizophrenic space populates Kips Bay’s fashion desert with seven floors’ worth of designers both niche (Craig Green, Gosha Rubchinskiy) and not (Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton), several of whom created exclusives like this Nike Air Python DSM Destroyer jacket ($600). Another novelty: The Rose Bakery, which sits atop DSM’s London and Tokyo locations, is on the ground level here, so shoppers can fuel up on quiche and carrot cake straightaway.
