She’s not afraid to experiment, boldly matching seemingly un-matchable elements, just like her everlasting inspiration – London. If you’d like to visit AlicePoint’s favourite stores, all you have to do is follow London fashion blogger shopping route.
Alice wants you to start from her favourite department store – Liberty London. That one-of-a-kind retail temple is not only filled with the latest fashion and hard to find anywhere else alternative designers’ clothes, but also makes a splendid example of old British architecture. Did you know that this department store has been constructed with parts of two ships? (More details here)
After spending a half day on browsing racks at Liberty (and getting lost couple of times in this maze-like interiors) transfer to the picturesque Notting Hill area. First stop: Club Monaco
This American label has nothing to do with Monte Carlo – it’s a sister-brand of Ralph Lauren but its aesthetics became a favourite of minimalistic urban girls. Monochromatic palette with sharp cuts makes it an alternative of power-suiting for the fashion-conscious working young women.
Your second stop would be Alice’s favourite drugstore, Aesop. Even if you’re not so much into potions and fragrances it’s worth peeking inside since design of all Aesop boutiques is legendary. See yourself:
If you are an office girl but with a soul of a rocker – this is your place! Expect slim suiting, funky patterns, and unexpected use of the lace – a certain reminder of Kate Moss’ style.
This French brand is anything the fashion girl could ask: up-to-date with current trends, good quality and quite affordable prices. Mix and match their separates in rich colors with edgy detailing.
Looking for current it-bag? It’s the right place! Anya Hindmarch launches at least one incredible piece every season. Her quirky designs are recognizable from the first sight. And the clothing line is awesome, too.
This list wouldn’t be complete without a proper multi-brand store. Matchesfashion stocks a variety of womenswear, shoes and accessories from famous brands. Example? A Balenciaga bag Alice has been hunting for!
