London Shops

Establishment neighborhood
Boutique 1
127/128 Sloane St., Belgravia
With shops in Dubai, Beirut, and Abu Dhabi, this Middle Eastern retailer has now arrived in London in a sprawling space that couldn't be more at home on tony Sloane Square. With a Nordic-concept-store look and a mini-department-store feel, it offers plenty of dedicated room for designers like Victoria Beckham, Elie Saab, and Isabel Marant, while more niche brands like Bella Freud, Malone Souliers, and Monreal London get their airtime on the surrounding racks and displays. Meanwhile, the Bistrotheque team serves up all-day snacks and drinks at the in-store April's Cafe. As a bonus, it has a leafy and secluded courtyard, making it all the more of a destination for West London's fashion crowd.
Viaduct
1-10 Summers St., Clerkenwell
The knowledgeable, friendly, and design-obsessed staff at this Viaduct showroom will introduce you to the work of all the up-and-comers, as well as the more established designers on the scene, like Patricia Urquiola and Japer Morrison. If they don't have what you're looking for, they can probably track it down. They're great for outfitting modern offices and much of their stock transitions easily into the modern home. GP's architect Al Martin even used Viaduct for the modern renovation of his London home.
