If you are into fashion, London is the place to be. The most popular color that can be seen in the streets is black. The variety of styles London's UK shops is astonishing and even sometimes surprising: leather knee-high boots, tight- fitting pants, crotch less panties, silk scarves, and other chic clothing. London is considered one of the world's fashion centers and you can easily make sure of it by shopping on the famous Bond Street -- street of fashionable UK stores.
Bond Street is a major shopping street in the West End of London. It is one of the principal streets in the West End shopping district and is a more upscale area than nearby Regent Street and Oxford Street. It has been the home for fashionable UK shops since the 18th century.
At one time, Bond Street was best known for art dealers and antique UK shops, clustered around the London office of Sotheby's auction house. A few of these antique UK shops remain, but most of the territory is now occupied by fashionable UK stores and boutiques, including such world leading and premium priced designer brands as Donna Karan, Prada, Chanel, Hermes, Nicole Fahri, Armani, Versace, Valentino, Gucci and Ralph Lauren.
Conveniently located between Oxford Street and Regent Street, Bond Street is the place that by right is believed to be the home of the undisputed fashion labels leader. If you are not after high fashion and are not prepared to pay high prices, then window-shopping can in these UK shops can also be a glamorous pastime. So if you have enough money to buy extremely expensive products of art and different brand goods let's make a shopping tour of this queen of fashion -- Bond Street.
A good place to start might be at the Italian store Geox. The key production of Geox is "shoes that breathe" for both men and women. Chain stores such as Nine West and Pied a Terre can provide some more conventional options. A distinctive English style can be found at one of the most famous UK shops - Mulberry and Burberry's new store. Keep in mind the products are quite high and if the price tags are not to your liking you can find a lot of interesting and fashionable products at Browns on the lesser-known South Molton Street.
You can find a wide selection of designer men and women's wear, as well as some considerable rebates. This street also has a gob-smacked variety of shoe shops -- probably you'll need a new pair after all that UK shops walking tour. But let's return to Bond Street.
Some stores such as Proibito offer various designer labels in one location. There is also Fenwick's Department Store which has a variety of goods under one roof. Bang & Olufsen also have a shop here. So if you are looking for aesthetically and functionally designed audio and video systems here you can satisfy your desires. The production is highly thought of and is supplied from London Danish-based company.
Sotheby's landmark auction house can be found on Bond Street. Sotheby's allows public access to its galleries throughout the week. But before you get the universally known UK auction house and bid for anything at the auction make sure you have an appropriate look - the audience can be internationally known! As a result, various antique stores and markets have appeared in the area - Philips, the Fine Art Society, the Bond Street Antique Centre and Gray's Antiques Market which numbers around 200 dealers selling a wide range of stock.
If you still have any money to spend after all that then you can choose from jewelry, watches, unusual and exclusive gifts for the home at Cartier, Bulgari, Tiffany, Garrard and Asprey. ASPREY is best known to be the official jeweler to the Queen, the Queen Mother and the Prince of Wales. It is a store that is full of surprises, albeit expensive ones. If your budget is tighter, Follie Follie might be the place you are seeking.
And finally, if you need to buy luggage to put and carry all your shopping bags home then Louis Vitton and Samsonite both have stores to provide you with the appropriate suitcase or bag.
We hope you are pleased with purchases and if you are a real connoisseur of fashion, Bond Street is the place you'll come again and again.
