Old Bond Street
On the hunt for signs of Christian Dior in London, the Old Bond Street offers the modern equivalent of luxury. You can go window shopping and admire the stunning displays at Louis Vuitton and more as well as the stunning architecture. One highlight is the »Royal Arcade«, built in 1879, and the first arcade of its kind that was built for commercial purposes only. The saddle roof, richly decorated stucco-arches and iconic columns have hardly been changed over the past 138 years. The original elements have been kept and make it one of the most prestigious Victorian arcades. Take a stroll there after sunset to enjoy the beautiful lights.
A TREAT FOR HOME
Buy a box of chocolates at Charbonnel et Walker. The company was founded in 1875, when the reigning Prince of Wales, Edward VII convinced two ladies Virginie Eugenie Lévy, born Charbonnel and Minnie Walker to start their own confectionery and sweets shop. SISTERMAG 46 | 03 / 2019
