London Diary: For the creatives
Hi Guys, I am back from a really inspiring trip to London. Unfortunately I already getting used to the daily Amsterdam life. Which is not bad though.
But why do I want to share this trip with you guys? First of all when ‘visiting another city’ it is really important for me that the trip is an inspirational one. I never visit only the famous tourist locations, but like to discover what’s out there in several districts. New concepts, delicious food and art. Almost all the items which I am wearing are from the Topshop Flagship store. Also, a must go in London.
For magazine lovers
You definitely have to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. It has a great bookshop and museum shop as well. Get some time to stroll around. The museum has free entrance. It is definitely worthwhile spending a morning!
The classic warehouses in London are much more unique than the warehouses we know. Harrods is one of these warehouses. The sales personnel with their costumes and wooden hats, the delicious food stands where you can take-away or sit, colorful sushi, fruits and seafood. The designers floor with Dolce& Gabbana, Celine, Gucci all separated in different rooms. Harrods is like a museum, a lot to see and to get inspired by. The designs, installations and the visual merchandising are exceptional.
87-135 Brompton Road
Rei Kawakubo, from Commes des Garçons opened a warehouse with all different kind of brands called Dover street Market. Unique installations build out of several materials. For every fashion lover a must see. Every floor is different. Not to forget, they also sell the famous designs from Comme des Garçons.
Sketch has the most beautiful interior I have ever seen. This restaurant includes several rooms where you can drink some tea or have a delicious lunch. The typical pink room called the Gallery is very populair, so make a reservation if you want to go there. This place is well known for its publications in World of Interiors. We decided to take place in the room next to the Gallery and enjoyed a delicious cup of coffee and pastry.
9 Conduit Street
If you like vietnamese food go the Pho. We experienced some delicious soups and salads in this small but cosy place. The people were polite and the food was really affordable. You probably know I am huge fan of this kitchen. It is colorful, healthy and fresh.
65A Long Acre
Brixton village is a food walhalla. This area is known for its multicultural inhabitants and this meets again the character of this sheltered market. In this hall you can choose out of several cute little restaurants; Asian, Mexican, Jamaican.
