Located just a few minutes walk from Paris’ Musée Picasso, Dover Street Parfums Market is solely dedicated to selling perfumes, make-up and grooming products.
This marks a change from the existing Dover Street Market stores, which only sell fashion collections and accessories.
Omitting any decorative backdrops or distracting colours, Kawakubo has left the white-painted surfaces throughout the store completely plain.
Kawakubo and Joffe opened the first Dover Street Market in London back in 2004. Since then the pair have gone on to open an additional five branches across the globe, including one in Singapore which is set inside former army barracks and another in LA where garments are displayed amongst art installations.
