There’s no shortage of places to see Rei Kawakubo’s genius on display (the Met’s exhibit on the Comme des Garçons designer remains open until September 4), but for a more shoppable version, fans might head to Dover Street Market (160 Lexington Avenue). Kawakubo opened a hybrid of a store and art space in 2013 with her husband and business partner, Adrian Joffe. Twice a year, in January and July, the store gets an interior-design makeover, where some featured designers get the chance to reconfigure their areas. Dover Street Market just underwent its latest biannual refresh — see the slideshow for a mix of new and existing installation shots.
