DOVER STREET’S NEW LOOK: London’s Dover Street Market has some new residents for fall. On Monday, Rei Kawakubo’s Mayfair retail emporium unveiled its twice-yearly change around of the concessions and spaces in the store, which it calls tachiagari, the Japanese word for “beginning.” Among the new spaces is an Yves Saint Laurent area designed by Stefano Pilati, which marks the first time the YSL mainline collection has been sold in the store. The space, which features gray velvety carpets contrasted with minimalist black and white units, also carries a bag that’s exclusive to Dover Street Market. The handbag, called Borsa Muse Two, is made from army surplus-style fabric and retails for 1,380 pounds, or $2,100 at current exchange. Meanwhile, a new shoe and bag space has opened on the store’s third floor. The area, created by set designer Andy Hillman, is designed to look like a charred ballroom, with luxe shoes and bags by Fendi, Maloles and Delvaux placed on burned wooden pianos or in distressed glass cabinets that stand on burned parquet floors.
