london - i gotta say, i really regret not checking out this legendary boutique when i was in london. dover street market really surpasses trendiness, the multi-level store which is owned by rei kawakubo of commes de garcon is pretty much an art-meets-fashion-gallery-space. one of the many elements, besides amazing high end merchandise by lanvin, chalayan, chanel, is the drastic makeover the store goes through several times a year. this past saturday they debuted a new look, above left, featuring retail exhibitions by chalayan, alber elbaz of lanvin and an installation by punk artist jamie reed. even the basement stocked wonders of it's own such as paris based artist, katerina jebb, vintage couture gowns, above right.
