A High-Fashion Oasis
Shopping for exceptional pieces and couture is always interesting. Between the unique pieces and the experience the boutique creates. However, no place is like Dover Street Market New York. They have seven carefully curated floors of endless fashion. They partner with major brands such as Gucci, and have a huge collection of the punky brand Comme des Garçons. No floor is the same. Each one reflects the mood of the clothing on display. Higher up in the building, you will experience the more known designers and high-fashion couture pieces. As of now, they have an incredible Gucci installation on the 7th-floor, check that out here. They have great pieces fro Loewe, Hood by Air, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, and more. You won't find too many everyday basic pieces here, but funky avant-garde fashion that will add a kick to any outfit.
It is recommended to start from the top of the building and working your way down to the ground-level. As you go through the different levels, you will begin to notice the different moods the floors portray. On all the floors, the decor is aggressive in the most beautiful ways. It feels as if you are walking through an art museum vs. a store. You want to touch everything, and your eyes wonder from one thing to the next. And, that is exactly how shopping should be.
On two of the middle floors is where you will begin to feel like you are in a shopping paradise—or wonderland—due to the overgrown flower wall and outlandish structural details that perfectly reflects the clothing.
This is probably one of the coolest shopping experiences one will witness, and we fully recommend taking a trip to one of their four locations around the globe. Dover Street Market proves that fashion is art.
