At one end of the spectrum is luxury goods company William & Son
, stocking traditional fineries such as handcrafted guns and rifles, cashmere-lined leather gloves and wooden walking sticks. At the other sits jeweller Stephen Webster
, whose diamond- and opal-encrusted skulls or spiders are courageously contemporary.
Fashion has played a vital role in forming the distinctive character of modern Mayfair, and since a pioneering Marc Jacobs
lifted the veil on his Mount Street boutique in 2007, other designers have followed suit.
Jackets by Lanvin
, red-soled shoes by Louboutin
and exquisite gowns by Jenny Packham
: today’s Mayfair is a temple to all things luxury. International luminaries are joined by niche names, too, including costume jeweller Gripoix
and the ever-imaginative shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood
Once you’ve had your fill of fashion, you’ll find that Mayfair’s streets have plenty more to offer, from furniture at Vitsoe
to rare wines at Hedonism
, and from fine art at Sadie Coles HQ
to perfect pastries at Pure Waffle
