Guinea Guide to London - What's Down in Town

Posted in on

Are you off to London anytime soon? Following our recent fashion shoot we thought we would piece together Guinea London’s must see, eat and shop places along with a peek at the trends for the next year.

For a day in the capital then comfort is key. Here at Guinea London we work with lots of stylists, and time and time again it comes down to layering, and looking good for all eventualities whether it's shopping or dinner. This is where one of our Guinea London Cashmere Fur Wraps is a winner because it's stylish, goes with anything and can be folded or rolled and popped in a bag if the sun makes an appearance.


 

Top London Style Trends & Key Pieces for AW19/20

  • For SS19, it's been all about the key trends of print clashing, classic white tops/blouses like our Silk Ruffle Blouse, and statement jewellery .

  • Camel was huge at London Fashion Week being the dominant colour for MaxMara, Burberry and Balmain. This timeless shade can be paired with anything keeping it firmly at the top in terms of investment pieces.

  • So thinking about investment pieces we are tipping the classic camel coat as a key basic essential for every wardrobe. Guinea London has two classic camel pieces to see you through the season,so check out our beautifully tailored Melton Trench and merino wool Alice cardigan with velvet trim.

  • Lace detailing proved popular, and insiders are saying that this will be replaced with velvet for AW19/20...you heard it here first!

Top Spots To Eat

  • The Wolseley is our favourite spot for brunch and a buzzy atmosphere - the Eggs Benedict are a firm favourite

  • Bluebird Café in Chelsea with its wonderful dining options both indoors and out, is a top spot and a lovely place to watch the world go by.  We can't resist the absolutely yummy spring pea and avocado dip with tortillas

  • Motcombs is just a hop away from the Kings Road, and with fab pavement street side dining, it is perfect for people watching - breakfast served from 8am

For us, no trip to town is complete without a visit to Partridges, not only does this food emporium have an incredible deli counter, but it also has a fab little café. Perusing the best selections of food from around the world is such a treat – great for expats in London who might be missing their staples from home like Kraft Macaroni Cheese or Welches Spreads.

Hampstead Village is a great place to head on a nice day, very chic and cosmopolitan. A sedate and relaxed place to shop away from the hustle and bustle of central London, it has everything including stunning views over London. When in Hampstead pop along to Designs , a must for vintage high-end designer pieces at superb prices and spoil yourself.
