On & Around the Street

Celebrate LFW With London Designers On Sloane Street

Backstage at JWAnderson SS17

London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2017 kicks off this week, with the crème of the city’s design talent primed to show their visions for next season on catwalks and in jaw-dropping presentations.

London is known as the city where creative talent is at its acme, with schools like Central Saint Martins producing designers like Christopher Kane, Peter Pilotto and Roksanda Illincic, who are now as lauded for their directional collections as they are for the stylish wearability of their clothes.

There is nowhere better in London to explore what this talented group are capable of than on Sloane Street, where designers like Anya Hindmarch and Emilia Wickstead have standalone stores and boutiques like Browns and the newly opened Boutique 1 join Harvey Nichols in offering a refined edit of collections by some of the capital’s most celebrated talents.
