London Part 2/3

London Shopping

I already mentioned some of my must-go-to stores in my previous post - Sandro, Maje, Whistles, Theory, Cos and Comptoir des Cotonniers are labels that can usually be found in most department stores as well. So instead of heading to the super crowded Oxford Street, I usually just go to Selfridges (also on Oxford though) straight away. There is also the famous Shoe Galleries which is basically every girls' dream. I bought my Aldo Rise shoes from there (below).

Regent Street and Liberty plus Carnaby Street are super good for the high street lovers. Carnaby is maybe a bit more for hipsters and on Regent you can find everything from Issa, Reiss and Michael Kors to Gant and Hamley's toy store.



Marylebone is also worth checking and Marc by Marc Jacobs is located down from Selfridges. New Bond Street, South Molton Road and Brook Street have all also nice shops.

My personal favorite was King's Road and Sloane Street around Sloane Square. There were also super nice lunch places. And my favorite shoe store, Russell&Bromley.

In Knightsbridge are located Harvey Nics (Harvey Nichols) and Harrods plus some high street stores such as Cos. In Harvey Nics you can find Céline (also sunglasses) and Victoria by Victoria Beckham (except for the fact that everything was basically sold out when I went there).

If you like to shop in malls, then head to Westfield (the one in West is best). There's pretty much everything you can dream of.

ps. I've been to Camden as well which was worth checking but not really my thing... and if you like market places or vintage stores, head to East.









Kuten aiemmin jo totesin, Lontoossa riittää shoppailtavaa. Paras on siis valmistautua listalla, ettei runsaudenpaljous yllätä. Tehoshoppailijalle Selfridges on aivan mainio, sieltä löytyy kaikki kivoimmat brändit ja suuri Shoe Galleries, missä kenkäfriikin unelmat todellakin toteutuvat.
Perus high street merkkejä rakastavan kannattaa suunnata Regentille ja Carnabylle, ja vähän kalliimmista brändeistä tykkäävälle New Bond Street sekä South Molton Road tarjoavat liikkeitä Mulberrystä Brownsiin.
Henkilökohtainen lempparini on King's Road sekä Sloane Street, Sloane Squaren lähistöllä sijaitsevien katujen ympärillä on myös ihania lounaspaikkoja.
Ostoskeskushoppailijalle Westfield on sopiva, vintagea ja toreja rakastavalle idästä löytyvät parhaat mahdollisuudet.

  2. Kiitos paljon! Olen itsekin ihan rakastunut niihin! Kuulin myös Lontoossa asuvalta ystävältäni, että olivat juuri uusimmassa Graziassa :)
