Dover Street Market’s Tachiagari


Rotating with the fashion seasons to maintain its cutting-edge appeal, London’s Dover Street Market concept store has unveiled its latest Tachiagari (meaning ‘beginning’) – a biannual, full transformation of the store’s interior.

For spring/summer 2011, the four floors of the Comme des Garcons-owned retail space have been overhauled by a number of artists and designers, including Parisian fashion house Lanvin's artistic director Alber Elbaz, who curated the Lanvin display in-store.

Other contributions come from British designer Hussein Chalayan, fashion brand Egg founded by former Issey Miyake designer Maureen Doherty, and a window designed by Paco Rabanne.

There is also a memorial to late Tokyo-based fashion designer Christopher Nemeth, a new Sneaker Space by London-based artist Michael Samuels, and a revitalised cabaret space called Industrial Cabaret, created by production designer Michael Howells.

With no overarching themes to this year’s Tachiagari, there is something new to see round every corner.
