Located in Dempsey, this nondescript-looking house – at least just on the outside – is home to some of the most sought-after brands. Inspired by the low-key stalls of London Kensington Market in the 80s, Dover Street Market is both art and fashion combined. Besides clothes from contemporary brands like Nike, Raf Simons and more, the interior of the store features embellished corrugated metals and geometric structures – great for the edgy OOTD you need for your Instagram feed. 

 

Shopping, Eyewear
