That London is one of the world’s most fashion-conscious cities is hardly news. The capital that was ‘swinging’ in the 60s has always retained its reputation as a centre of style, with best-selling brands that seamlessly combine an original mix of British heritage and cosmopolitan influence.

There’s always plenty to see in London, from the sights and sounds of the diverse neighbourhoods to the street style that creates a catwalk on every corner. So imagine taking a tour of the city and shopping the London looks without even the need to travel.
