109-125 Knightsbridge, Knightsbridge
Shopping the Harvey Nichols flagship is one of life's great pleasures as it's often quiet and crowdless. Beyond having the most well-curated selection of contemporary lines in London and a shoe department that is never disappointing, the seasonal sales are legendary. As if that weren't enough to make you want to move in forever, there are also salons, spas, and the Fifth Floor—a sort of high-end cafeteria with great food and cocktails.
42 Hans Crescent, Knightsbridge
Feathers is the kind of well-respected, family-run institution, that even after 40 years, still manages to stay on the cutting edge. The brand assortment isn't as deep as other boutiques of its caliber, which is precisely what makes it so easy to shop—the stuff that does make the cut (Paula Cademartori accessories, Mawi jewelry, Sacai Luck separates) is all exceptional. Their recently launched online shop is the next best thing to an in-person visit.
227-229 Brompton Rd., Knightsbridge
From copper pots to the best selection of electric kettles (an English staple), you'll find pretty much every essential for outfitting a kitchen here. It's the big stuff, and the small stuff, including a variety of French presses, the best ovens, and great salt and pepper shakers.
87-135 Brompton Rd., Knightsbridge
Sure, it's the city's most legendary, over-the-top shopping destination and it stocks all the upscale brands you'd expect (the markdowns at sale time are ridiculously good), but it's the food hall and ice cream shop that keep us coming back, particularly because littles go wild for the tastes-better-than it sounds spaghetti ice cream. The variety, presentation, and quality really are unsurpassed, though the price tags mean that it's only an occasional indulgence. It’s also just a beautiful and majestic space.
