Knightsbridge is one of the finest luxury shopping destinations in London and has our Urban Chic Apartments nearby this luxury-filled area. For this reason, we have put together a list of some of the most incredible shopping facilities that are worth paying a visit!
Harrods is Britain’s most famous store and it is known by people all over the world. It truly is one of the most incredible stores you can ever imagine, with the phenomenal range of products including things such as pet accessories, jewellery, technology, and clothing by all the best brands in the world as well as a spa, hairdressers, restaurants and cafes all within one building! This store is really worth experiencing, even if it is just to have a look around!
Harvey Nichols is another fantastic store that you can find in Knightsbridge. Although Harrods and Harvey Nichols are often compared, they are both incredible in their own right. The difference between the two is the fact that at Harvey Nichols you have less of a variety of products. Harvey Nichols has several fantastic clothing brands by top designers, furnishings and some great restaurants! On the 5th floor there is a very trendy champagne bar that is always very busy, especially on a Friday evening.
Lulu Guinness is an incredible shop where you can buy beautiful handbags. Although Harrods and Harvey Nichols are also swarming with them, think of this as more of a candy shop for women. With its fantastic interior and colourful bags in all different shapes and sizes it is really an experience in itself.
Christian Louboutin is an outstanding shoe designer. Although you will find several of his designs in both Harrods and Harvey Nichols, we still think this shop is most certainly worth its own separate visit. It’s another candy store for women with the entire store covered in shoes! They also have men’s shoes, making it a great place to go with your other half. Whether it is to window shop or maybe you have saved up for these not-so-kindly-priced shoes, it is most certainly worth a visit!
Jimmy Choo is one of the most famous designers in the entire fashion world. The shoes are equally as delicious to look at as the Louboutins and also not in the kindest of price ranges; however they are also worth every single penny! Guys save up for these shoes for months. Just to be able to say that they own a pair is something that will impress women around the world. The shoes are available in Harrods but because of their fantastic name and reputation, we felt that they were worth a separate mention!
Gucci is another fantastic brand that does everything to do with fashion, from sunglasses to fabulous clothes and handbags. If you are looking for a store with the highest form of fashion for the entire family then this is the place for you! Being a world-famous brand, the prices are on the high side however this is most definitely made up for by their amazing collections which are sure to make you feel like a million bucks and turn heads on the street.
Zara is a great store to go for shopping with the latest clothing trends within a much friendlier price range than a lot of the other shops in the area. At Zara you can buy clothing for the entire family and you will be sure to walk out of there smiling with satisfaction about your new purchases!
Cutler & Gross is the perfect place to shop if you are looking for the best within eyewear. If you want glasses or sunglasses that are fashionable as well as functional, then this is the place for you to go! The glasses are absolutely lovely! There are also eye examination opportunities available by their specialist staff. With over 40 years’ experience with being a luxury brand, the staff will be able to assist you with whatever you may need!
Reiss is another great store that you can find in Knightsbridge. They do absolutely fantastic coats and dresses! They also do shoes and bags and much more including menswear. The prices in Reiss are not as high as you would expect but you will most definitely be leaving with something of good quality.
Hermes is the perfect place for you if you are looking for real quality leather products. There is a Hermes section at Harrods as well but there is more of a variety of products in the actual shop. This store is perfect for buying amazing bags, wallets, iPad cases, silk scarves, ties and much more!
