If forced to name one place where you might find underwear in a vending machine you might be at a loss, however there is one place where this can be found inside a very unique building on Dover Street. It opened in London in 2004アンダーウェアを売る自動販売機があるこのショップに、驚いてしまうかもしれない。ここは、ドーバー・ストリート沿いのとてもユニークな建物の中に位置するドーバー・ストリート・マーケットだ。川久保玲による全く新しいディレクションのもと、2004年にロンドンにオープンしたこのショップは、6階からなるフロアでファッションとアートのコンプレックスとして、見ごたえのあるブランドのショッピングだけではなく、アートインスタレーションを楽しむこともできる。

under the unparalleled direction of Rei Kawakubo which saw its six floors becoming a mixture of fashion and art, since then Dover Street Market has become the place to be for not only buying an impressive range of brands but also just for the experience of seeing its art installations.

In 2012 it opened a new branch in Tokyo as well, hopefully marking the beginning of a revolution of stores around the world which aren’t just about selling clothes. Every January and July it closes down completely for three days so that the new season’s collections can be installed and so that the spaces that house them can be redeveloped.

On every floor there are different brands to be bought as well as different art to be seen, a common theme on all floors are furniture or walls made out of rough materials, on one floor clothes might be hanging from rails that have been made out of ladders and on another floor the cashier can be found in a roughly made corrugated steel hut. A new approach to mannequins can be seen with not only different colours but also set in often playful poses. Every floor represents a well thought out layout with the magical effect that the clothes blend in with their surroundings and seem to be almost part of the art installations.

After perusing every floor, admiring the art and purchasing your items, the last and topmost floor has a bakery where you can relax and marvel over what you have just seen.
