Dover Street Market Ginza is celebrating five years in the high-end fashion district of Tokyo. The six-storey building is the home of some of fashion’s most progressive and innovative brands, changing the industry with their avant-garde concepts and futuristic designs.
Fashion heavyweight Gosha Rubchinskiy is imminently releasing an exclusive series of photographs and screen prints chosen from his own photo books from the past five years to further commemorate the store’s anniversary. Signed and numbered by Gosha, the images will be sized 16″ x 12″ and each collection is priced at around $800 USD, an unsurprising sum when you consider the almost palpable sense of mystery that surrounds the Russian personage and all that he touches.
Rubchinskiy’s propensity for post-Soviet activewear coupled with precise 80s tailoring can be seen in elements of his photography. Pieces from his renowned “Transfiguration” project are set to sell, wherein Gosha explored the youth in Russia, working at a skatepark in St. Petersburg. The photo series will also feature several fluorescent prints designed by Arseniy Kazimirov.
The collection is expected to hit DSM Ginza on March 18, followed by releases at the DSM stores in London and New York, COMME des GARÇONS Trading Museum and a handful of other elite stockists.
