What's the new Dover Street Market of London like?

 

Londoner “avant-gardism” temple, Dover Street Market has just launched a new address in Haymarket, at Burberry's former head office.

Dover Street Market Raf Simons corner

 

 

Comme Des Garçons creator Rei Kawakubo and president Adrian Joffe's concept store, opened in 2004, hasn't lost anything of its original vitality.

It is now over five floors and 3000 m2 that high fashion brands and labels from young and promising designers coexist: from Dior to Loewe, not to mention Alessandro Michele's Gucci, Jacquemus, Gosha Rubchinskiy or Vetements... There's something for everyone. Abandoning its historical location in favour of Burberry's former head office, the most liberated duo in the fashion world proves once again that the element of surprise is one of their many strong points.

Among the myriad of different creations imagined specifically for the occasion, Burberry restored a collection of twenty of its famous trench coats.
