Everyone loves a good shopping spree but with so many stores, both old and new, in London it can be difficult to know where to start. Here we have compiled a list of all the must-see womenswear boutiques in London that you just cannot miss. Whether you’re looking to shop in an environmentally friendly way, or want to get your hair done in between trying on that pair of jeans or that dress, we’ve got you covered.
This boutique on Broadway Market is a real must for those who value brands that are socially and environmentally responsible. The store brings together labels that have a shared ethos to make the fashion industry better, and employs a very strict policy on transparency with all the brands that they stock. 69b Boutique’s motto is “wear the change”.
69b Broadway Market, E8.
Aida is the place to be if you fancy more than just a shopping experience. They have such a wide range of brands for menswear, womenswear and home that you are guaranteed to find something you love, and there is also a vintage beauty parlour and café within the store, making it the perfect place to hang out on your day off.
133 Shoreditch Highstreet, E1.
If you are in need of some new trainers, Pam Pam is where you need to head. The store is the first female-only trainer shop in the UK and was set up by two friends who were frustrated by the male-dominated trainer world. Pam Pam stocks all the brands we know and love, such as Nike and New Balance, as well as smaller, more niche names.
129 Bethnal Green Road, E2.
This bijou Belgravia boutique is the home of Egg, a brand that has dressed Donna Karan, Tilda Swinton and even Theresa May. The Egg Shop used to be a dairy and still to this day retains the characteristics and features of its past, with wooden barn doors and blue and white tiles. The clothing is simple, sophisticated and timeless, and is a magnet those who eschew mainstream fashion but still appreciate great design. With the stock constantly changing, you are unlikely to find the same thing twice.
36 Kinnerton Street, SW.
The Third Estate is another eco-friendly store for you to explore. Based in Camden, this place is well known for its vegan-friendly leather shoes and, just like 69b Boutique, is stocked full of socially conscious brands. The store’s aim is to sell well-made, good-looking products which are free from any animal ingredients and which meet high social, labour and environmental standards.
27 Brecknock Road, N7.
LN-CC is definitely as much an experience as a store. Hidden away in Dalston, it houses art installations as well as hard-to-find vinyl and a rare books library curated by Claire de Rouen. LN-CC stocks items by the likes of Fendi whilst also supporting local, up and coming talent, and has a focus on sustainable and ethical products.
18-24 Shacklewell Lane, E8.
