A stone’s throw from London’s Bond Street, designer indie Dover Street Market offers a unique shopping experience with its exclusive array of high-end designer brands showcased across its six floors.

Founded about 11 years ago by Rei Kawakubo, the woman behind the launch of Commes des Garçons, Dover Street Market went global in 2012. The designer indie opened a six-floor store in Ginza, Tokyo, in March, and in December signed for a 20,000 sq ft seven-storey building at 160 Lexington
Avenue, New York.

It has also been reported that Kawakubo and business partner Adrian Joffe plan to open as many as five more stores.
