Dover Street Market, mostly feels a lot more like one giant art installation than like a regular shop, still it's hard to name a brand that is not offered at this eclectic store.

Peter Pilotto’s Rail at Dover Street Market, London by Martino Gamper
Rail by furniture designer Martino Gamper, commissioned by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

'Regarding the ideas behind the rail, I was inspired by Peter Pilotto’s 'The Stone Masters' collection, having grown up in the Italian Alps/Dolomites. I’m very familiar with rock climbing. The rail is about winding, stretching and movement in space, similar to a rock climber.” Martino Gamper 

Dover Street Market Concept and Direction by Rei KAWAKUBO

'I want to create a kind of market where various creators from various fields gather together and encounter each other in an ongoing atmosphere of beautiful chaos: the mixing up and coming together of different kindred souls who all share a strong personal vision.
We hope to make DSM more and more interesting. I enjoy seeing all the customers coming to DSM dressed in their strong, good looking and individual way. I would like for DSM to be the place where fashion becomes fascinating.' Rei KAWAKUBO
