Every January and July, London's Dover Street Market holds a biannual Tachiagari to welcome in the new season. For those of you who do not know, Tachiagari means 'beginning' in Japanese. The store shuts down entirely for 3 days and re-opens its doors with a fresh, new and modern perspective, as well as showcasing new collections in innovative, curated spaces.
Each season the Dover Street Market works with a revolving group of artists, fashion and set designers to construct different displays / interiors. This year, artist Michael Samuels designed the new Dover Street Sneaker Space installation located in the stores' basement. Alber Elbaz created a chessboard for Lanvin and on the third floor you can find production designer Michael Howells' renovated Cabaret Space renaming it the 'Industrial Cabaret'. Husband and wife duo, Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe opened Dover Street in 2004, with the idea of creating an evolving store that frequently introduces new designers as well as intriguing interiors.
As of last week, Dover Street Market welcomed Prabal Gurung as one of its new designers. We could not be more thrilled to be a part of this incredible store amongst renown brands such as Lanvin and Yves Saint Laurent.
