What’s new on Sloane Street

The past year on Sloane Street has seen new shops opening and existing spaces reinvented. An eclectic mix of quirky pop-ups, exclusive boutiques, flagship stores and chic hotels make it the destination for luxury shopping and dining in London

Cult streetwear label Off-White’s only UK outpost is on Sloane Street 

As things start to get back to normal, Sloane Street is once again buzzing with locals and visitors browsing its many luxury boutiques and designer flagships, and sampling the delights of the neighbourhood’s bars and restaurants.

Those who haven’t visited the area for a while will no doubt notice some newcomers to the street, as well as some new and improved spaces from existing brands. During what has been a turbulent time for the high street, it’s been wonderful to see so many openings over the past year, with plenty more coming soon…

August 2020 saw the launch of the UK flagship boutique for 2020 Walpole Brand of Tomorrow, Anabela Chan – the ethical fine jewellery brand that champions laboratory-grown gemstones. In the same month, chic French menswear label Façonnable unveiled its first UK store, bringing a taste of the Côte d’Azur to the Street.

In September, it was the turn of Off-White, the cult streetwear label by Virgil Abloh, who chose Sloane Street as the site of his first standalone boutique in the UK.

While the country was in lockdown, many brands were busy expanding and reinventing their offering behind the scenes, in preparation for the high street opening up again. April 2021 saw the launch of the two-storey Ralph Lauren flagship on Sloane Square, designed to reflect its classic yet bold American style, while boutique hotel 11 Cadogan Gardens launched The Apartments by 11 Cadogan Gardens, six elegant apartment suites set in an adjacent townhouse.

In May, Anya Hindmarch’s highly original The Village opened on Pont Street. A retail first, the village comprises four separate boutiques and a café, all run by Anya Hindmarch, including sustainability focused The Plastic Shop and The Village Hall, an ever-evolving pop-up space.

In July 2021, storied British label Burberry opened its much-anticipated new flagship at 1 Sloane Street. And, following a £100million renovation, five-star hotel The Carlton Tower on Cadogan Place opened its doors once more.

Up on the Harvey Nichols fifth-floor outdoor terrace, luxe Russian vodka brand Beluga launched its summer residency, serving expertly crafted cocktails. There until the end of August, it’s the perfect spot to take the weight off your feet and enjoy a refreshing drink after all that shopping.

Watch out for further openings in the coming months, including all-suite boutique hotel Beaverbrook Town House ­– the London outpost of Surrey country house hotel Beaverbrook – a new flagship from French fashion house Balenciaga, and the relaunched Sloane Street Deli, from the team behind the brand-new Nomad Hotel in Covent Garden.
