Dover Street Market, the inspirational luxury fashion concept store founded by Comme Des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo, has reopened on London’s Haymarket.
The new Dover Street Market at 18-22 Haymarket sits in a grade two listed building, which was built by Thomas Burberry in 1912 as the original headquarters of Burberry.
At 31,380 sq ft over five floors, it is more than double the size of the original 13,000 sq ft store, which opened on Dover Street in September 2004.
Opened under the creative direction of Kawakubo, brands including Gucci, Raf Simons, JW Anderson, Celine, Vetements and The Row were given the freedom to design their own areas within the store, resulting in an array of unique and inspiring spaces filled with a diverse mix of innovative and interesting fixtures and fittings.
There are two other Dover Street Markets, in Ginza, Tokyo and New York, alongside a franchise operation in China.
