Browns Brook Street

The 1970s was a bold and overstated era in the fashion department, giving us hippie chic, power dressing, glam rock and even punk – all within an exceptional 10-year timeframe.  We haven’t even paid homage to Bo Derek’s braids (shout out to Bo). But the most exceptional fashion moment of all?  Well, that’s a no-brainer: Browns launched into the London scene in 1970.

At a time when there were no multi-brand boutiques, Joan Burstein and her husband Sidney bought the first of five Georgian townhouses on South Molton Street and changed the course of retail and fashion history.
