This is more because it's such a fab place than for the clothes, as sadly, very little actually fits me. I have a 40" waist, a stomach I have carefully invested in over many years of beer-quaffing, and an 18+" collar and I am 6'2" tall. Not your typical raver size. Trousers rarely are found in sizes over L though occasionally you pick up the odd T-shirt which is XL which just about fits me (although I can look a bit sausagey in certain lights).
I tend to buy only sale items largely because I'm a bit of cheapskate when it comes to clothes. I baulk at the idea of paying £50 for a pair of plastic trousers, even if they do look kinda cool under UV lighting. As for shirts, well £30 seems excessive to me. However, go during the sale and you'll pick up some fabulous stuff from as little as £5. So, amazingly, I actually have about 10 Cyberdog shirts in my wardrobe, and they all get quite a lot of wear. But it's only on those odd occasions that there is something XL that actually fits me and is in the sale!
This is more than a shop. You have pounding dance music, people in cages dancing on the walls, several floors of all sorts of things you never thought you need, a sex-shop for those people who enjoy watching their anal love-beads glow in the dark, and it seems to get bigger and bigger every time I go there. My main criticism is that in their music section they appear to be stocking a lot less psytrance than they used to, and their flyer selection has gone downhill.
Part rave club, part shop, Cyberdog is a unique and crazy institution of Camden market! I usually come here to buy Manic Panic hair dye if I’m in the area, and for a good browse around at the wares. Of course, due to the loud music, it’s hard to talk to anyone in there, much less the sales assistants when you want help!
I LOOoooooVE CyberDog. Its clothes are amazing and so different to any other cyber wear range out there.
I am a fellow raver so i can appreciate the clothes fro many different levels. Even if you are NOT a raver you will still LOVE the gear in the shop.
Everyday wear, crazywear, raverwear and Superduper stuff for everything else!!
I recommend you go there / here if you are in London and havent heard of it before.
DO IT!! :)
Can't say that I've ever bought anything in Cyberdog because I'm not blind, German or in a perpetual 90s rave.
BUT I love going in here to gawp at people dancing violently to bad techno, watch tourists thumbing gimp masks and generally feeling a bit ill under the UV lights.
It's certainly one of the most unique and eccentric shops in London and a mecca for cybergoths but if you're shallow and judgmental like myself you won't be that enamoured.
I am afraid to say that this place doesn't really string my Stradivarius. Maybe it's an age thing, but the intrusive music is so lacking in soul that, by comparison, it would make Chris de Burrrrgh seem like Smokey Robinson.
Meanwhile, the variation on vomit-themed colour schemes evoke traumatic memories of a chemically heavy night in Dalston, c.1991.
When I'm in the manor, I tend to give Cyberdog a swerve usually uttering avuncular-like words such as: "I remember when house music was...."
Like I said, maybe it's an age thing.
Boom, Boom, Boom, tss, Boom, Boom Boom
Expect Hard House blaring at you, fluro costumes and cyber gear all around, robots, dancing girls in fluffy mini skirts and bras. Space, flashing lights and loud, loud music.
Cyberdog is great, it's more like a club than a shop, except without quite as many gurning casualties.
I wouldn't go for the clothes but it's definitely on my list of places to pop in if I'm up at Camden Market, and it certainly wakes you up after wandering through patchouli scented fabric emporiums.
Cyberdog is less of a shop and more of a tourist attraction. I have to admit that although I’ve been in there several times, the only thing I’ve ever bought is a babygro that said 'Pimp My Pram’ for a friend. There are certainly some unique items in there, not all totally impractical pieces that no-one would wear, but you pay for the privilege. Nonetheless, they look very well made. What gets me everytime is how I enter thinking how awful the music is and leave almost dancing to it!
Ever since I was old enough to remember smoking pot under the lock, getting into rave music and bandying around glow sticks like sparklers I have affirmatively loved this shop.
You'd bring your mum here when you were trying to explain bizarre teenage tendencies, you'd bring visiting tourists here when trying to show off the diversity and ubiquitous fashion of London, you'd bring your lover/partner/kiss chase buddy here when trying to sneak a cheeky session in one of those futuristic, cylindrical changing booths that were never kind to unshaved legs or badly pedicured toes.
Although it's fair to day they haven't updated their centralised website in light years, this site http://www.cyberdog.net/about.html still gives a broader indication of the virtual frenetic world of Cyberdog, its cult following and the robotic clothing/random accessories and music this outfit bring to the stratosphere. With earth stations in São Paulo, Manchester, Ibiza, Basel and of course battlestation Camden Town, you'd be ill-advised to stay on planet earth and miss this experience.
As a brief aside, I tried to blag a part time Sales Advisor job at the Covent Garden branch (negative, not enough piercings). I've popped into past stores in Amsterdam and Leeds (which really didn't work), but for a true taste of London, whatever your musical and lifestyles preferences, it would be criminal not to immerse yourself in this virtual reality.
Cyberdog is located in the heart of the Camden Market. Where you are near you can hear the music coming from inside. Once inside this shop is really a different experience. The staff is dressed with colourful clothes and nice haircuts and the clothes are difficult to define. I like more the men collection that has some nice, punk clothes with neon colours and nice designs. The women clothes are more cheesy but there are some items that are really nice as for example the trousers. They have a range of t-shirts that had an screen displaying different images.
The dressing rooms are capsules very impressing.
The prices are not cheap but they have sometimes reductions.
A great shop selling some great clothing. They have t shirts that light up and clothing that glows under uv light. They have some good music playing. They have lots of uv lights in the shop so you can see what the t shirts look like under the light. There is also a dark area with the light up t shirts. I enjoy going in to this shop even if I am not planning on buying anything.
It’s certainly worth a visit-particuarly in Camden and has the weirdest clothes and accesories, all slightly overpriced in my opinion. I’ve never bought anything there myself, but I still go back to check it out, purely because of it’s amazing music and the occasional dancer. If you like clubbing, then look here first.
