Dover Street Market, London

Window reflection or game of my overactive imagination: Karl, the unique, would join me here in London, in the Dover Street Market’s window, Rei Kawakubo’s smart concept store, the stylist of Comme des Garçons.

Intrigued I get inside: yes that’s Karl! Focal length problem, not one, two: numerous Karl in life-size. I work too much. Rub my eyes, to be 100 % sure… the hall dotted with some Karl, here near carryings at the first floor, second floor…

Vertigo, rain of… Yes it’s raining some Karl at the Dover Street Market! What a headline! Focus on the small carrying dedicated to Christopher Kane, the ultimate “darling” designer of the Brit fashion journalists. I wanted to see and touch “for real” his creations. And I confess, I really like them. Especially this white chiffon dress, absolutely fabulous.

Already another Karl comes up, then a battalion of Replicants. How do they do to increase so fast? Reloads of Karl! I beat a hasty retreat in the Victorian room, decorated with immaculate white Tudor axes on a wall and a recycle (I hope, my “green” side) cardboard fireplace. It’s the shoes and bags corner, you can find some Pierre Hardy…

I go up onto the roof, having some fresh air. Two, three… a Karl triptych receive me, mechanically I answer:

– No, I’m not a number!

So surprised to ear me playing “The Prisoner”.

– A glass of water, Mademoiselle Le K ?

– Thanks… Karl !!!

One response to “Dover Street Market, London

  1. For those who love fashion, creativity and aesthetics, it is a true pleasure to discover the latest colletions on the catwalk and to have a preview of the winter collections through those original and off the beaten track photos, suggesting and proposing a do it yourself combination of clothes that gives you that personnal touch and unique style -yours! We start already dreaming of the next season and travelling to London, Paris and other hustling cities in Europe and all over the world for our next shopping spree and to find that unique outfit, accessory or object that will become our piece of art for ever….
