DESIGNER STYLE: BRIX TALKS FAVOURITE LONDON MARKETS, SECRET SHOPS, RESTAURANTS & INTERIORS
Designer Brix gives us the lowdown on her latest projects and favourite London haunts.
Holland Park & Nottinghill are lifetime favourite hangouts...ithey are little villages within London. Portobello Road [ one of her favourite London markets ] is close by too. All three house fabulous boutiwues which always have one-off pieces just waiting to be found. Paul Smith opened his flagship store on Westbourne Grove in 1998 and became instant neighbours with many more internationally aclaimed designers, including Diane von Furstenberg on Ledbury Road in 2003. Other notable stores include:L'Appartement Sézane, Westbourne Grove
Folie from Guillaume Depoix on Soho’s Golden Square recently opened and quickly became a firm favourite. The much admired interiors from the amazing Studio KO, the Parisian agency behind a Brix + Bailey family favourite Chiltern Firehouse, catapults you back into the old school glamour of the French Riviera from days gone by. 37 Golden Square, Soho, London W1F 9LB
Sexy Fish, designed by the internationally acclaimed architecture & design studio Martin Brudnizki Design & based on Berkely Square hosts installations from Damien Hirst & Frank Gehry. Serves incredible Japanese-inspired sushi, sashimi, seafood, fish and meat cooked on a Robata grill all washed down with some of the best Japanese whiskey in the world!
Neptune is a seafood lovers paradise...perfect for lunch. Cnr of Guilford Street and, Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE
The Wolseley is a firm favourite amongst the Brix + Bailey team. London’s culture and fashion lot, and always great for celebrity spotting. The best place to go for breakfast before hopping in a taxi to the first shows of the day – if you can get a table. 160 Piccadilly, London W1J 9EB
