The curated concept is aligned with Sole DXB and d3’s ongoing efforts to support local and independent communities.

We hope to give visitors a unique experience and introduce them to an even larger selection of urban wear.”

The specially curated d3 Marketplace brands represent global talents from Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, Russia, the Netherlands and India. Focusing on emerging brands, each with their own flair, the Marketplace concentrates on new, breakthrough talent coming from all corners of the world.
