Dover Street Market
Time Out says
Posted: Wed May 2 2012
Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo’s ground-breaking six-storey space combines the edgy energy of London’s indoor markets – concrete floors, tills housed in corrugated-iron shacks, Portaloo dressing rooms – with rarefied labels. All 14 of the Comme collections are here, alongside exclusive lines such as Lanvin, Givenchy and Azzedine Alaïa.
Dover Street’s biannual ‘Tachiagari’ event sees the store close while designers make changes to their concessions, ensuring the space is constantly evolving. There’s a Chalayan area with exclusive pieces, as well as areas devoted to Celine, McQueen and Rick Owens to name a few. Pieces by edgy jewellery designer Noguchi, as well as Azature, Waris and Repossi, are available on the ground floor. Once you’ve taken it all in, have a sit-down in the Rose Bakery on the top floor.
Dover Street Market is number 6 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
