American skincare supremo Kiehl’s London

The company’s excellent products, based on natural ingredients, are instantly recognizable in their no-frills packaging. Be warned, however – they’re far more expensive here than in the US. Poste Mistress at Nos. 61-3 has the feel of a 1970s boudoir, with designer shoes from the likes of Angelo Figus and Pucci perched amid kitsch, framed photos and burgundy velvet pouffes. The talented buyer at Koh Samui Nos. 65-7 always selects exciting pieces from well-known designers Dries Van Noten, Miu Miu, Clements Ribeiro, plus cutting-edge offerings by up-and-coming talent. The jewellery and accessories are especially creative. Across the street at aQuaint No. 38, Ashley Isham’s grown-up, tailored-yet-feminine womenswear hangs side by side with neat modern clothing by British designers Emma Cook and Boyd, and exquisite, expensive frocks by Lanvin.
