Oscar de la Renta

Ideal for those who are a little taller.  The shoes and earrings worth looking at. Think billowing kaftans in loose silks, as much as show-stopping evening wear. 130 Mount St, London W1K 3NY

Pringle of Scotland

Menswear and womenswear - traditional Pringle style v neck knits, but also a beautiful pastel palette of really sumptuous cashmere for those who want something a little less recognisable.

Bright, bold and vibrant art work style to this brand. More of a loose, cool cut.  The famous Marni sandals, wide leg cropped pants, or the much admired Trunk handbag that never dates. Very popular with Japanese and Chinese, would be relevant for late teens and early 20s seeking out something in Mayfair.

London style, that comes in exuberant puff-ball skirts, but also stunning pearl-embellished t-shirts. Worth asking what's hanging behind the scenes! 93 Mount St, London W1K 2SY
