Locals all grumble about Singapore being one of the world’s most expensive cities, but the label does hold some allure on a global scale, particularly for luxury labels and major concept stores. One such brand that coming to Singapore is Dover Street Market. Established by Comme Des Garçons’ Rei Kawabuko, Dover Street Market is a cult high-end concept store that has outlets in four major cities – London, Tokyo, New York and Beijing. The population’s major spending power was cited as the main reason why Singapore breaks in as the first Southeast Asian location for Dover Street Market. Tentative details state that Dover Street Market will open in COMO Dempsey, a conceptual retail space.
