Manolo Blahnik’s name has been synonymous with luxury footwear since it was established in 1970.
His longtime fans count tastemakers from Rihanna to Anna Wintour. The brand was even immortalised on screen when Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw was mugged at gunpoint for her heels.
Manolo Blahnik remains a family business today, with the eponymous designer as Creative Director and Chairman and niece Kristina Hulsebus Blahnik as CEO. Manolo still sketches every shoe himself and works with artisans in Italy to bring each collection to fruition. In addition to more than 150 new creations each season are permanent classics including the Hangisi, BB and Chaos styles.
In July 2018 a dedicated men’s store opened alongside the women’s boutique in the Burlington Arcade.
One of the longest-standing tenants of the Burlington Arcade, N.Peal was born in 1936 as a haberdashery store.
It started selling luxury knitwear after founder Nat Peal discovered a source in the Shetland Islands, where he was stationed during the Second World War. By the 1950s, Peal was considered Britain’s ‘King of Cashmere’, with customers including Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe and Princess Grace of Monaco.
Today, N.Peal sources its cashmere from sustainably run farms in Mongolia, and the Burlington Arcade flagship is a three-level showcase for the men’s, women’s and homeware collections. It also offers a bespoke service through which customers can have their chosen design hand-knitted to order.
In addition to many high profile customers, N.Peal are also an official James Bond partner and their sweaters have been worn by the secret agent in the films Skyfall, Spectre and No Time To Die. These featured styles are available in the Burlington Arcade store where you can learn more about the collaborative process of creating pieces for 007.
There’s a reason Ladurée makes ‘the world’s most delicious macarons’ – it invented the sweet confection back in the mid-19th century, and the recipe hasn’t changed since.
Its dazzling Aladdin’s cave-like space at the Piccadilly entrance of the Burlington Arcade draws you in with its rainbow of macarons. It also offers classic French pastries like religieuses and millefeuilles, as well as gift boxes of bonbons and tins of loose-leaf tea, while a street-side cart sells ice-cream in summer and chocolat chaud in winter. Look out for limited-edition collaborations from the likes of Charlotte Dellal and Marina Abramovič.
