Brandy Melville is quickly becoming one of the latest must-have high street label and is definitely a current favourite with fashion bloggers and Instagrammers.
If you want to see what all the fuss is about and pick up some laidback California-style fashion for yourself, there are four Brandy Melville stores to choose from in London:
1. Carnaby Street
Brandy Melville’s flagship UK store is located just off fashionable Carnaby Street, on pedestrianized Foubert’s Place. There are lots of other fashion shops in the area, along with plenty of European-style street cafes and coffee shops if you’re in need of a shopping break.
As well as the usual Brandy Melville clothing and accessories collection including pretty dresses, slouchy tees, soft knits and on-trend denim, there are also some Carnaby-only exclusive products here. There’s even a retro photo booth so you can pose with your friends and show off your new purchases.
This store has a big selection but can get very busy so if you’re after a more relaxed shopping experience and shorter queuing times at peak times (weekends and Friday afternoons), you may want to try one of the other branches.
The nearest tube station is Oxford Circus. Many bus routes also run to nearby Regent Street and Oxford Street.
11 Foubert’s Place, Carnaby, London W1F 7PZ
Open 10.30am – 7pm Monday to Saturday and 12 – 6pm on Sundays
2. Covent Garden
This Brandy Melville store opened in 2015 in the “Seven Dials” area that links Covent Garden with Soho. You’ll find plenty of other trendy fashion boutiques, beauty salons, cafes, and restaurants on the surrounding streets, making it a great location for a day out shopping.
The nearest tube station is Covent Garden, from where a 2-minute walk will get you to Neal Street.
Seven Dials London, 9-15 Neal Street, London WC2H 9PU
Open 10am – 7pm Monday to Thursday, 10am – 7.30pm Friday to Saturday, and 12 – 6pm on Sundays.
3. Kings Road
Brandy Melville’s first UK store opened on King’s Road in 2012 and offers 2,005 square feet of California-style retail therapy. This branch gets top reviews for its friendly staff, generous number of changing rooms, and little extras like free stickers at the checkout.
There are also plenty of other shops worth a look on King’s Road including Anthropologie, Orla Kiely, Toast, and Penhaligon’s perfume house.
Kings Road is well served by public transport and you can reach the Brandy Melville store in a 5-minute walk from Sloane Square tube station.

Open 10.30am – 7pm Monday to Friday, 10.30am – 7.30pm Saturday, and 12 – 6pm on Sundays.
If you’re in north London and don’t want to venture into the city centre, there’s no need as Brandy Melville have helpfully opened their latest branch on Hampstead High Street.
Shopping in leafy Hampstead makes a nice change from the hectic inner city and there are plenty of other shopping opportunities here including branches of Jigsaw, Kurt Geiger, and Oliver Bonas, alongside independent boutiques and plenty of pubs and cafes to provide refreshment.
Brandy Melville is directly opposite Hampstead tube station and the high street is a 5-minute walk from Hampstead Heath rail station.
