DSM LONDON'S 10TH ANNIVERSARY
The celebrated Dover Street Market London opened on September 10th, 2004, and has marked it's 10th anniversary with renovations, new installations, artist-decorated fitting rooms, a grand event space by Louis Vuitton, and a whole host of non-stop events and special edition product launches throughout the month of September. As a multi-level store conceptualised by Rei Kawakubo, the legendary Dover Street Market London houses all COMME des GARÇONS lines, as well as collections by the world's most compelling brands, each accorded creative spaces to design and install as they please, which contributes to the most astonishing retail environment known the world over. The happy co-existence established within Dover Street Market has lead to many exclusive collaborations between the designers and the store, adding another layer of dimension to the destination. Like the icing on the cake, FABRIC favourites Rose Bakery can be found on the topmost level, offering treats to cure the needs of even the most dedicated shoppers. “I want to create a kind of market where various creators from various fields gather together and encounter each other in an ongoing atmosphere of beautiful chaos: the mixing up and coming together of different kindred souls who all share a strong personal vision.” - Rei Kawakubo. Take a look through (a portion of) the intricate new fit out of Dover Street Market London below.
