Shopping at The Savoy
The new SHOP at The Savoy within London's landmark Savoy Hotel sounds very interesting. Open to residents and non-residents alike, the shop has a carefully edited collection of products that are slanted towards British brands, which certainly gets a tick from Tweedy. Some of the things that take my eye are the Cutler and Gross sunglasses, the Savoy library collection of 50 titles reflecting London in literature, The Savoy Cocktail Book, and china from our friends at The New English. With all those books, it would be tempting to become a semi-permanent resident - nice idea.
There will be a seasonal rotation of big names and hidden gems in the shop (another Tweedy tick). In addition, shopping services are available that include 'London Unwrapped' excursions. These can be arranged with distinct itineraries such as Bespoke Outings. Of particular interest to me is a trip to Savile Row that may be arranged escorted by Savile Row author and expert, James Sherwood. Ladies, perhaps that would be of interest to the special man in your life...or your husband.
