C is by Comme des Garçons. The brand created Rei in 1969. The name came from a phrase in the song of Françoise Hardy: "comme les garçons et les filles de mon âge". In 1981, she travelled to Paris accompanied by Yohji Yamamoto to present her collections which changed the way she saw fashion and appropriated the "technique" of construction and deconstruction of the patterns, which was followed by the wave of Belgian designers years later. One of her best-known collections was Body Meets Dress, Dress Meets Body of 1997, which consisted of dresses placed on pads, referring to the modification of the body throughout history.
D is for Dover Street Market. Following the success of Comme des Garçons, and taking into account its focus on creating a unique customer experience, she decided to open Dover Street Market. A space that works as a space to host established designers like Raf Simons, Gucci, Céline and Rick Owens, and a platform for new talents like Jacquemus or Off White. "I wanted to create a market where people could enter and find beautiful chaos."
