#Basic buyers beware! We advise you to steer clear of Murray Hill this Saturday, lest you be trampled underfoot by a hoard of Wang-wearing fashion groupies. Unless of course you are one, in which case we'll meet you on the corner of Lex and 30th sometime before the 11 am opening of Dover Street Market's new NYC outpost. We suggest you bring a venti, because the wait might be a while. What's the big deal, you ask? Well, the Comme des Garçons-run retailer, with locations in both London and Tokyo, is internationally infamous, and this weekend marks its first stake in American soil. The massive, 7-floor market is set to house high-end brands from A.P.C. to Visvim, multiple art installations, both a Louis Vuitton AND Prada pop-up shop, as well as the French-flavored Rose Bakery that's also featured in the other two locations. Add a weekend's worth of extended holiday hours to the mix and you've got yourself a total fashion free-for-all. Since we can barely contain our urge to shop until Saturday, we've already rounded up some must-haves from the DSMNY e-shop. Check out the pieces you need to see before the big opening!
