World-renowned for its luxury retail emporiums and haute couture boutiques, there’s nowhere quite like Mayfair for some rewarding retail therapy. Home to the finest British heritage brands and international designer flagships, as well as Savile Row, which is lined with some of the most prestigious men’s tailors in the world, the well-heeled neighbourhood has something to please the most discerning shopper. Guests staying at The Chesterfield Mayfair, right in the heart of the area, can enjoy easy access to London’s most exclusive shopping district.
The evolution of Mayfair as London’s premier shopping destination began in the 18th century, when much of the land in the area was acquired by the Grosvenor family. With the help of master builder Thomas Barlow, the family set about transforming the streets and squares into a chic enclave inhabited and frequented by the city’s polite society. The city’s finest tailors began setting up shop in the area in the early 1800s, with the iconic H. Huntsman & Sons moving into Savile Row in 1919.
Five minutes’ walk from The Chesterfield, Mount Street is a well-established destination for fashion devotees. It’s the chosen location for the prestigious flagships of a number of British brands, including fine jeweller Stephen Webster, designers Christopher Kane and J&M Davidson, and perfumer Creed. Exclusive international brands include Christian Louboutin and Balenciaga among many others.
New Bond Street, a short walk from the hotel, holds similar prestige and is lined with illustrious fashion boutiques. Among them is Emporio Armani, whose ready-to-wear fashion and accessories are emblematic of exquisite Italian tailoring. The store invites The Chesterfield’s guests to tailor their wardrobe for the season ahead with an exclusive personal shopping appointment. The ultimate bespoke experience, appointments are available either in store or in the comfort of your hotel room, and include a consultation with the fashion house’s experts. It’s an intimate opportunity to browse the latest collections in privacy, with a professional picking out the best pieces for you.
