SW3 – Where London meets class

As one of the estimated 400,000 French citizens living in London, it’s no surprise that I like wandering around the streets of South Kensington.

This particular area of the capital does feel like walking around Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, with a good mix of restaurants, bars, cafes and luxury and premium fashion stores.

Lately, though, shall I dare say it is even better than walking in Paris? With the latest additions of great stores such as Carven, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Acne Studios, it is literally like being on a real size Net-à-Porter website.

Where else in London do you see Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Stella McCartney and Ralph Lauren along from brands like Joseph, The Kooples or Zadig & Voltaire?

South Kensington – Brompton Cross in particular – creates a unique destination for shoppers – offering them a choice.

This does not only apply to fashion. You also have a great selection for food whether you fancy a gastronomic dinner or a more informal lunch. Even the architecture is full of surprises. Look at the iconic Michelin House building, built in 1909, which is now a great example of modern design and style.

But if those brands are different in terms of price they are all equal in terms of quality and style. And this is what South Kensington is all about.
