In fashion

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.
