Christian Lacroix Christian Lacroix (Designer Shop)

My favourite designer. I actually stayed at the Petit Moulin. The shop integrates serious style into the pieces, with its vibrant colour contrasts. Will definitely come again to this store. Made my trip a pleasure.

What I love about this shop is how discreet it is. Very quiet, but with staff at hand at any moment. Very well laid out, with more stock to be tried on.

The most down-to-earth shop I've visited in London.

Giorgio Armani Giorgio Armani (Designer Shop / Menswear Shop)
10 April 2008

This shop differs greatly from other shops in the haute couture line. Staff are in no way pretentious, and were happy to help me without even questioning if I was going to buy. I walked out with a smile on my face. A true gem, and the suits are absolutely stunning.

Burberry Burberry (Designer Shop / Children's Clothing Shop / Handbag Shop / Menswear Shop)
10 April 2008

Why do people insist that Burberry has always been chavy? From the image on the right, I'm guessing a chav has never so much as set foot through that door. Burberry is a classic representation of modern and antique England, keeping traditional clothing simple and comfortable. If you can't afford the prices, then don't buy; if you think it is chavy, then don't buy. It's as simple as that. It doesn't take a genius NOT to shop somewhere. Lovely shop, simple in design, fabulous quality clothing. Will definitely shop there again.

Paul Smith Paul Smith (Menswear Shop)

Nicely situated, and a fantastic tie selection downstairs, this shop hosts the best of Paul Smith, in atmospheric surroundings. Staff are mostly male, and actually have a clue about fashion. Highly recommended, but keep it quiet though!

Pretentious staff, but when you actually buy something they seem to take much more interest.

Dolce & Gabbana Dolce & Gabbana (Designer Shop / Handbag Shop / Menswear Shop)

Absolutely LOVELY staff. Really helped me pick out some shoes. At one point I had two staff members helping me. Really good service. Although, I will always love shopping at Harrods D&G more. Just a better atmosphere.

Moschino Moschino (Designer Shop)
06 April 2008

A change from the pretentious snobbishness of some designer shops. This shop hosts a fabulous selection of clothing, from a variety of lines such as Haute Couture and Cheap and Chic, whilst having a relatively simple layout.

All staff are happy to help, and you are not judged on how much you are willing to spend. The staff are down-to-earth and don't let you leave dressed like big bird.

I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants an enjoyable experience buying fantastic quality clothing.

Christian Dior (Designer Shop)

Nice layout to shop, clothing and fragrance is exquisite, but staff actually have the nerve to look at you as if they could afford anything in that shop.

Chanel (Designer Shop / Handbag Shop)
06 April 2008

Staff seem only friendly if you are buying something for over £1000. It's strange, as a lot of the people even browsing that shop will have more money in their pocket than the staff will earn in a month. Very sullen and rude staff, who changed their tune when I bought a tie and a pair of sunglasses.
