Sloane Street re-opens

After months of purchases being limited to that of essential items only, the simple please of shopping for luxurious (in)essentials has once again been permitted – Sloane Street’s luxury fashion boutiques reopened their doors on 15 June 2020.

Drawing on their experiences across Europe, luxury brands including Hermes, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and Fendi have put in place a range of unique and carefully considered measures that prioritise the health and wellbeing of staff and visitors. Exceptional customer experience is at the heart of the Sloane Street experience and returning clients can be confident that they will be looked after; from directional pavement vinyls in keeping with the character of the area to being provided with branded hand gel on arrival made in the in the Maisons’ own perfume factories.

Many have reduced opening hours and are open at a reduced capacity to ensure social distancing can be maintained between you and the staff. VIP services will be offered to everyone; private one-to-one appointments both inside and outside the store opening hours should you prefer a more intimate and personal experience with the brand.

Chauffeur services are also provided by some of the boutiques, and kerbside collection is available, allowing for contactless delivery – waiting cars may pause for up to 20 minutes on the Street’s single yellow lines. Additionally, home delivery within London will also be a new service offered by the brands and some even offering consignment service whereby a curated edit of products can be delivered and customers only charged for those they keep.

Less densely populated than more centrally located shopping areas, Sloane Street is a delightfully uncrowded one-kilometre long stretch of the world’s most exclusive and luxury boutiques. With its wider than average pavements and spacious layout, Sloane Street is uniquely and naturally conducive to social distancing.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Chelsea has gone alfresco

Chelsea is home to some of London’s finest restaurants, bars and cafes and, this summer, Chelsea has gone alfresco. Our door spaces across Chelsea have been transformed to ensure your favourite eating and drinking hot-spots were able to reopen safely post-lock-down. Here’s what you need to know:

Duke of York Square has taken on a continental al fresco atmosphere, inspired by the terraced squares of Paris and Italy with seating for 120 additional people. The running track in front of the Saatchi Gallery opens each Saturday for socially-distanced picnics. Marked picnic bubbles help visitors picnic safely whilst enjoying delights from the Duke of York Square Fine Food Market, nearby Pavilion Road artisan food quarter, or local restaurants – many of which introduced takeaway options. The Fine Food Market, curated by Partridges each week, now hosts over 20 stalls offering artisanal and locally produced meat, game, fish, bread, cakes, chocolates and more. Vardosituated at the heart of the Square, features the UK first fully retractable 360-degree wall to floor windows. Naturally conducive to social distancing, the lines are blurred between the outside and in, delivering visitors a unique dining experience with extended outdoor seating.

Throughout the summer months, Sloane Square has been transformed into an outside restaurant, bar and leisure area. Royal Court Theatre has created a “Court on the Square”, an outdoor pop-up bar and cafe. Colbert has partnered with Pernod Ricard to deliver a ‘Pastis and Petanque’ themed bar and cafe. Who can resist a spritzer and came of French boules?

Pavilion Road, the picturesque mews and recently completed artisan food quarter, is now car free and pedestrian friendly – lined with outdoor tables and chairs which can be enjoyed by diners of The Sea The Sea, Granger & Co and Hans’ Bar & Grill. For oyster lovers, visit The Sea, The Sea’s Oyster Terrace Bar which is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 1-9pm, offering champagne, wine, oysters, sashimi and other light bites. Pavilion Wine have also introduced tables and chairs for conoissuers to enjoy their favourite wines in the sunshine.

Ugly Butterfly Adam Handling King's Road

Ugly Butterfly to open on the King’s Road

The latest arrival on the King’s Road will enable you to indulge and do your bit for the planet at the same time. This November, Adam Handling will open Ugly Butterfly; a sustainable casual restaurant and sustainability conversation hub at 55 King’s Road.

Making zero-waste luxurious, Ugly Butterfly will make chicken feet and banana peel glamorous as the dishes are created from ingredients usually thrown out. The collaboration between award-winning chef Adam Handling, Cadogan, Quintessentially Foundation and The Felix Project will open on 13 November.

Open for walk-in diners from lunch until late evenings from Wednesday to Sunday, enjoy a delicious menu of snacks and small plates alongside a Champagne list (by the glass) from the region’s top wine makers. All dishes will be made from the parts of ingredients that are usually discarded, most of which coming from Adam Handling Chelsea, with an emphasis on the four most wasted foods; bread, milk, eggs and bananas. Adam has created some daring dishes which he hopes will inspire you to think more carefully before you throw away your leftovers; deboned crispy fried chicken feet with caviar; Adam Handling’s iconic cheese doughnuts made with leftovers from the cheeseboard; banana bread and chicken butter; lobster shell soup; broccoli stalk Ceasar salad, retired dairy cow tartare and crispy potato peelings and reformed doughnuts (made from leftover bread) and overripe fruit jam.

As well as a great place to eat and drink, it is set to become a hub for business and community sustainability hub with pioneers in sustainable food and drink, restaurants, fashion, technology, and art and craft, holding free conversations and experiences for drop-in diners twice a week on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 7pm.
