Caught the art bug? In this issue we speak with Rei Kawakubo about the new Dover Street Market Ginza, where brand names are banned and the shopping experience places as much emphasis on culture as consumerism.

We visit a cash-strapped but creative house in Belgium (by De Vylder Vinck Tillieu Architects) and a shrine to Savile Row in Singapore (by Upstairs). In Tel Aviv we check out the low-budget design scene of a city that’s as complex as it is creative. We finish it off with three meals at London’s newest ‘temporary’ restaurants, which represent the changing face of the UK capital’s dining scene.
