Pedestrian square, W1 For individual shop details, see pp222-5 Opposite Bond Street Tube station, a narrow alleyway leading off Oxford Street Gees Court widens into a hidden square with shops and eateries. This appealing enclave features a modern fountain and is dominated by a large branch of Italian gourmet cafe chain Carluccio’s. Drinkers from the pub opposite spill out onto the pavement, and you can often catch live jazz on summer nights. Shopping highlights include a branch of Mulberry 11-12 Gees Court; see also p6g and the spacious flagship of women’s chain Whistles 12 St Christopher’s Place, which stocks hot designers alongside the shop’s own-label – signature styles include bias-cut dresses and modern tailoring. Next door, Osprey is the place for mid-priced, classic British-designed handbags structured shapes in mock croc are a key look, while across the way at Nos. 20-21, former theatrical shodders Anello & Davide, who made Dorothy’s ruby slippers for The Wizard of Oz, sells a range of men’s and women’s shoes, hand-crafted in Italy.
