Buzz: Dover Street Market New York

January 13th, 2014


Next time I go to New York (though I don't know when that will be because according to Chinese astrology I have been warned against traveling north, northeast, northwest this year)  I'll be checking out the new Dover Street Market, where every brand has its own unique tableau:

When I was in Bangkok, malls were also set up this way, with clear differentiation of brands. It really adds to the shopping experience, though I got lost many times because the boutiques are not set up in typical American mall grid style. You just wandered from one "set" to the next.

It's at 60 Lexington Ave.

Sean Combs presents Instagram fashion show

Sean Combs launched his latest men's collection with an Instagram Fashion Show, with images released beginning 10 a.m. this morning, Feb. 8.  Viewers will be invited to check out images from the latest collection at, with pieces only available at Macy’s.

The multi-media star claims the Instagram fashion presentation is the first in social media history. Although I'm sure smaller showcases have taken place—there have been many an Instagram art show for instance—he may very well be the most high-profile personality to make use of the service in such a timely way.

I think it's a great idea for a small company with no budget, but a bigger company can't discount the electricity and energy that comes from a physical display, even if it's just a walk-around presentation.
