Dover Street Market Beijing opened its doors to the public on February 3.
I.T Beijing Market has been converted into Dover Street Market Beijing.
News of a Dover Street Market China store was first teased sometime in November 2017. Most people thought the store would be located in Chengdu, but it turns out DSM China’s first store will be located in Beijing instead.
Last Thursday, DSM took to Instagram to announce the launch of its Beijing store (previously known as I.T Beijing Market, a fashion emporium created by Comme Des Garcons and Bape). In addition, according to the post, this will be “the first of a three-part transformation”.
A quick look at the new DSM Beijing website reveals that the freshly minted store will carry brands such as Play Comme des Garcons, Acne Studios, Peace Minus One, and Bape, to name a few.
The new Beijing retail space will be decorated with vibrant colors, with graffiti collages adorning the walls containing Gosha Rubchinskiy apparel (reference here). Other artistic decor pieces include large installations such as an adorable Kewpie sculpture (image below).
