A short walk from Victoria station and Sloane Square, Elizabeth Street is a high street like no other. Chic and sophisticated, it’s packed with niche luxury brands and one-off shops, from high fashion to artisan foods.
Wander the street to discover Philip Treacy’s only London store, where he quietly produces showstopping creations for any event. Visit the fashion designer described by Vogue as ‘Queen of the red carpet gown’, Jenny Packham has two stores on the street, one devoted to bridal wear and the other to accessories. Jeweller Erickson Beamon has long created stunning signature pieces, alongside other independent jewellers Kim Poor and De Vroomen. Allegra Hicks has also recently opened her flagship store here. Even animals can accessorise glamorously thanks to Mungo and Maud, with a stylish line of leads, collars, baskets and organic treats.
And for the foodie, specialist French baker Poilâne bakes its artisan bread freshly on the premises every day. TomTom stocks delicious freshly ground coffee and gourmand Cuban cigars to accompany it. The Thomas Cubitt, Oliveto and Baker & Spice provide further escape from the daily grind of high fashion shopping.
Elizabeth Street is home to Henry Stokes, in business for 150 years, specialising in personal printing of invitations and writing paper, including holding the agency for the leading American brands, Crane and William Arthur.
For a little piece of the street’s green serenity to take home, pop in to celebrity landscapist and gardener Stephen Woodhams. Or pick up a sophisticated scent to ensure memories of the blissful experience linger, from Les Senteurs.
