If you love shopping London is one of the best destination in the world. From flea markets and huge department stores up to luxury shops, this is that kind of city able to satisfy all tastes and all budgets.
Personally, every time I visit the city I can’t miss Portobello Road vintage market, the exclusive Bond Street, Selfridges at Oxford Street and a long walk along Regent Street.
Regent Street connects St. James and Regent’s Park, passing through Piccadilly Circus.
Besides the beauty of the road itself, the street welcomes some of my favorite brands.
Down below a brief handbook with my bookmarks.
London means Burberry, therefore missing the historic boutique at 121 Regent Street is like a crime. The store, completely renovated a couple of years ago, combines tradition and future, tangible languages and hi-tech technology.
Nowadays you try to transfer real experiences on the web, here the reverse happens.
Who’s looking for casual-wear can not miss a visit to J.Crew at 165 Regent Street.
Italian fashion is the best but I have to admit that British people win in terms of men’s shoes. This is the reason why a stop at Church’s boutique at 201 Regent Street is inevitable.
If you are looking for perfumes stop by Penhaligon’s at 125 Regent Street. The fragrances are excellent and the boutique is a little gem.
Another great stop is Liberty at 208-222 Regent Street. The building, a perfect reproduction of Tudor style, includes numerous brands and sections but I recommend the home section on top floor.
I was able to discover all the secrets of Regent Street during “Regent Tweet” last May. Regent Tweet is an annual event born to unveil and share all the secrets of road.
together with me ten international bloggers and about a hundred – yes you read right – a hundred Made in the UK bloggers were invited.
Such a super cool event I attended with great pleasure!
Wish you a good day!
