Hippopotamus Clutches & Stalactites

Continuing its tradition of amazing window displays, multibrand boutique Dover Street Market (an initiative of Comme Des Garcons) in London has commissioned Paris based fashion designer Damir Doma to create a temporary window display for  for its Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Damir Doma, in collaboration with Parisian design and production studio Les Diplomates, using ancient cave formations as inspiration, have created a giant stalactite like structure made from wood that was burned by hand that will ultimately contrast against the pale linen and bright golden garments by the designer. There will also be a limited edition collection of 10 clutches made from rare hippopotamus skin exclusively available at Dover Street Market. You can see the window display February 24 to March 16 – DSM, 17-18 Dover Street, London.
