Nordstrom Space announced an exclusive partnership with Dover Street Market Paris (DSMP) to highlight emerging global designers in curated concept shops. The collaboration will feature all seven individual brands under the Brand Development branch of DSMP, which will introduce its Spring/Summer 2021 collections in select Nordstrom stores and online at nordstrom.com.
With a common goal of championing up-and-coming creatives, the partnership combines Nordstrom Space’s
ongoing efforts to support diverse brands with Dover Street Market Paris’ unique roster of emerging and
independent labels. The brands to launch at Nordstrom Space under the collaboration include Vaquera, Rassvet, Weinsanto, ERL, Liberal Youth Ministry, HFD and Youths in Balaclava. Each brand brings in a variety of products across womenswear, menswear and gender-neutral styles and accessories.
This is the first time Dover Street Market Paris has partnered with a retailer for a shop-in-shop experience. For six weeks, the specially-curated edit of the seven brands will live in dedicated Space concept shops designed by artist and furniture designer, Marc Hundley.
“We started Space five years ago as a platform to support emerging designers, provide continued newness and
inspire a sense of discovery for the Nordstrom customer,” said Olivia Kim, vice president of creative projects and Home at Nordstrom. “We have a long-standing relationship with the Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market team, and when we heard that they had created a division to support emerging designers, we knew we had to approach them about this concept as it aligns so closely with our mission. With the help of artist and designer Marc Hundley, we are excited to bring this partnership to life by introducing these unique brands through a compelling visual story telling experience both in-store and online.”
