Why have London this attractive that never we can´t resist go to shopping there?Napoleon Bonaparte said that Britain was a nation of shopkeepers. The History tells us a different thing for both of them … «Boney» was banished to the island of St. Helena by the British, where he died. And London being the world capital of luxury shopping turism with millions of Sterling Pounds growing year by year and being the place where there are more exclusive designers and luxury shops, the vanguard of fashion, and vintage shopping. London have the most famous department store and recognized specialized shops in world. Today I propose you a perfect outfit to do shopping at the best places in London.
I´ve chosen this jacket because it remember the André Courrèges designs in 60´s so innovators and uncomplicated, that were called Space Age. In fact it was being, we was living the first arrived a man to the moon, Laika … and so on. Courrèges and the British designer, Mary Quant have required for their the creation of mini skirt. Don´t hear the Beatles and their fans ? Sure yes. We are involved in the atmosphere of the trendy London. I love it!
And talking about Beatles and trends, Stella McCartney has designed this Short sleeved knit jumper in contrasting persian red and yellow rugby stripe. So British! It´s a colour combination 60´-70´ years, totally trendy. It suggests us walk along Carnaby Street, pure Soho. In Regent Street is the inescapable Liberty where you even can find designs by Stella McCartney. Sale points of Stella Collections you can find up to 7, only in London. The «headquarter» is in the exclusive neighborhood of Mayfair, at 30th of Brunton Street.
The Fendi peep toe are a definitive touch for this outfit so revival but created with pieces from the last collections of s/s even f/w 2015. I´ve wanted show what Anna Wintour says when she talks about London, Fashion, her own career and those years : You must be blind to don´t wise up the world was changing. This is the background idea of my post : You must to have the eyes and ears covered if you don´t have the notice to the world have done a total change again!
Talking about total changes, we left Soho and go to Bond Street where you can find the most exclusive firms in world. Here are shops like Bottega Veneta who have designed this bag, that is perfect for the outfit that I´ve proposed to you. Some of the shops in Bond Street, (fashion preferably) have more sale points in London but here is their principal store , because Bond Street is the most luxury and fashionable place for shops in London at the moment.
Fendi is in Bond Street too. This sunglasses has a very risky designed by Thierry Lasry exclusive for f/w Fendi 2015 collection. 4 different designs are shown in the website , they are so awesome that I have problems to decide, because I like all of them. I´ve chosen, this iconic ring by Cartier because it has a fabolous story about the love in friendship. But the Trinity have infinty of meanings that have been added from it have been designed to nowadays. Several of these meanings are very famous and other so privates like each lover of this piece.
If there something in Bond Street that make me fall in love are jewelrys. Cartier have two shops one in Old Bond Street and other in New Bond Street . But you can find shops so spectacular and awesome like that Harry Winston, Adler, Boucheron, Buccellati, Chaumet, Fabergé,….I wouldn´t finish ever.
Bond Street is very near from Fortnum & Mason, rest and regains strength with the wonderful delicatessens you can find here . Fortnum & Mason is one of the specialized shops more prestigious and recognized in the world. Cult place for the foodies from all the Countries.
