Luxury and contemporary labels alike are flocking to London’s tony Brompton Cross area, opening stores in the pretty South Kensington neighborhood to cater to its affluent, often international residents.
Over the past year, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Acne and Carven all bowed on Pelham Street in the area, while J. Crew opened on Draycott Avenue. They join Stella McCartney, who opened a store there in 2012, and longer-term residents like Chanel on Brompton Road and Joseph on the area’s Fulham Road.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
