there are no words to describe dover street market. i know i lost mine halfway through the comme des garcons pieces on the first floor and was bordering on dilussional by the lanvin and celine-clad fourth floor. you must understand that in between there was demeulemeester, rick owens, alaia, margiela..... scattered amongst animal bones in an innovatively designed interior.
dsm is a concept high fashion store in london that considers art, fashion, and creative existence. the selection of brands, particular pieces, and the art and design that surround the objects work together to create a space that inspired me in a very new way. it was like going to fashion disney world.. imagination takes over (so much so that i forgot to take any photographs, these are just old ones i found through google). i am always searching for ways to marry fashion and art (theoretically and in life), and this store just makes it happen. you start looking at the clothing in the same way you are looking at the artifacts, the art, the chunks of red yarn hanging from the chandeliers... the features worked together to offer a creative experience and inspire visitors to live creatively and choose clothing as carefully as they would art.
