{ Dover Street Market }

DoverStreetMarket1I rarely find myself in the city on a Saturday, so this past weekend’s in-town adventure was the first chance I’ve had to check out the three-month-old NY outpost of Dover Street Market (on the corner of 30th Street & Lexington Ave). A concept shop with preexisting locations in Tokyo and London, DSM is curated by Rei Kawakubo and stocks otherwise hard to find indie labels out of Europe and Japan, alongside exclusive collaborations with the likes of Louis Vuitton, Prada, Alaia and a whole lotta Comme des Garçons (my favorite of late!).

It’s a seven-story, treehouse-like space filled with playful, childlike interior touches, plus stacks of serious, advanced fashion. It makes shopping feel like an artistic experience, renders luxury unintimidating and big-brand-browsing feel refreshingly fun.DoverStreetMarket2|ABOVE| a playground for fashion-minded grownups!

    Is your camera strap a wrist strap or are you just wrapping it twice around your hand? I am looking for something similar!

        Thank you so much!!! I also bought some silky pants this year because of your amazing Thailand sets! It’s like I’m turning into a fangirl or something. Terrifying ;)

    Thank you for sharing, I loved the interior decor, especially the ‘crying dummy’ , looks very cute as is the black chair, I liked its built in space, perfect to hide newspapers or magazines away :)

        I guess that’s one reason why you should avoid the city on the weekends! :-)

    fashion should always be an artistic experience. it’s a shame people overly mass produce it. takes the special out of it.

    love your minimalist outfit

    Great images. Don’t you just love a cool flea market? If nothing else, it should nourish the eye and fire up your creativity.

    Especially love how each designer has their own vignette-esque space in the store.
