British brands to buy

Traditional or modern, luxe or high street, vintage or cutting-edge, backstreet boutiques or big department stores and vast malls, London has become a unique shopping city with some of the best brands in the world.

collapsedshowBond Street

Around the Bond Street area, you will find established labels such as Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Victoria Beckham recently opened her first store nearby on Dover Street, opposite the influential retail space Dover Street Market – don’t miss a trip here, to pick up pieces from the Brit-pack stars, such as Phoebe English and JW Anderson, alongside those, like Erdem and Mary Katrantzou, who trained and work in London.

On the high street, TopShop is the leader in affordable fashion, with regular collaborations with London style champions such as Kate Moss, and emerging new designers, such as Marques Almeida; the London-based label is the most directional name in denim for those in the know.

Many historic brands bring a rich heritage to London’s fashion scene. Veterans of British design, such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Mulberry continue to influence global style trends. The best-known is Burberry, whose history sits comfortably with its beautiful modern take on design, but the city has a wealth of others – tailors have been working on Savile Row since the 1840s, and names such as Barbour (founded 1894) and Smythson (founded 1887) are quintessentially British.

collapsedshowVintage

The vintage hunting grounds of Portobello and Shoreditch add another dimension to the city; try the weekend markets, or for a more upscale experience, try House of Liza in east London and Merchant Archive in Notting Hill which stock carefully edited quality vintage.
