One of the most famous fashion emporiums in London, Joan Burnstein's style mecca is still a force to be reckoned with. Every label is lovingly hand-picked, and you can choose from the likes of Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Alexander Wang and Yves Saint Laurent. More than this though, Browns is a complete shopping experience, where there is always something new and spectacular to see, whether it is a one off silk wrap from Indonesia or a precious gemstone ring from Rajasthan. And, of course, where you can find out which labels are hot, which are classics and which are about to get big quicker than you can say "fashion victim".
The Library is a store meant for men who actually enjoy the shopping experience, as opposed to those who just get forced into carrying their girlfriends' shopping bags. The store has many designer labels, from Alexander McQueen and Raf Simons to Carol Christian Poell. Interestingly, the store wasn't just given its name because the owner liked it; in addition to the clothes being arranged alphabetically like books in a library, there are also tomes on photography, fashion and art to be bought.
One of Portobello Road Market's many treasures, One of a Kind is paradise for lovers of vintage.

The pieces in this Aladdin's Cave, as it has come to be known, are rare designs by the likes of Alaia, Biba, Zandra Rhodes and more. Make a mad dash to this store for a beautifully fitted evening dress by Alexander McQueen, or a silk off-shoulder number by Ariella.
