My London Address Book

October 27, 2013

BOUTIQUES: Browns Focus & Dover Street Market for high end fashion pieces or maxing out your credit card; Joseph Brompton Cross has a great selection of designer labels and really helpful staff; Aime stocks pretty, wearable separates by French favourites like Isabel Marant & APC; Trilogy for jeans and my weekend wardrobe; Heidi Klein & Liza Bruce for swim and beachwear.

VINTAGE: London Vintage Fair at Hammersmith Town Hall hosts the best vintage fair once a month on a Sunday; Rellik for vintage designers brands, lots of Westwood, YSL and Dior; Mairead Lewin is London’s best kept secret for really dreamy vintage finds (by appointment only +447968 940 293).

ACCESSORIES: Charlotte Olympia for my shoe fix; for jewellery Harrods has a really good selection of both fine and costume, for vintage try the shops in the Burlington Arcade or Grey’s Antique’s market; Liberties for everything else.

LINGERIE: Agent Provocateur for fun and sexy, Carine Gilson for classic and the highest quality silk and lace, otherwise Selfridges has a great variety of brands and they also stock a good selection of shape wear. For fittings i would take clients to Harrods.

HIGHSTREET: Zara…if you have the opportunity to shop it abroad the price, quality and fabrics are much better.

DRY CLEANERS: Jeeves of Belgravia, they have lots of services, including leather, fur and suede; they also are the best at getting out the trickiest of stains.

SPECIALIST DRY CLEANERS: Blossom & Browne for vintage and couture.

COBBLER: KG Shoes, are my favourite, they even re paint my red Louboutin soles!
