London’s Dover Street Market is a hub of innovative and unusual fashion, but just as the collections chang,e so do the interior spaces.
Every January and July, the market operates a ‘tachiagari’ where the store shuts entirely for several days and then reopens looking like quite a different animal.
Designers are invited to host individual spaces, and many come personally during Tachiagari to re-work their areas.
For DSM’s latest incarnation, which opened yesterday, Phoebe Philo installed the Celine space on the second floor, Alber Elbaz has designed the Lanvin area, and a new Hussein Chalayan space has been created, inspired by traditional Japanese puppet theatre called Bunraku.
Here is a selection of our favourite parts of the new store.
Dover Street Market is open Monday to Saturday at 17-18 Dover Street, London W1S.
