We have taken over the window at the Belgraves Hotel in Knightsbridge.
The ‘April Showers’ installation is based on the contrasting weather we experience at this time of year. As warmer air starts to build, the jet stream moves towards the UK bringing in strong winds and rain across from the Atlantic. These big temperature contrasts from the ground up, makes the air incredibly unstable. The bigger the contrast in pressure, temperature and humidity (the 3 main drivers), the more dramatic the weather. The result? Classic April Showers.
The window reflects the science of April Showers with 3 contrasting shapes of well-suited city gentlemen. Tailored in Tweed, Pinstripe & Herringbone with distinctly different body types. All 3 characters go about their day in the same way but all have their own style, taste & behaviour. The window will be on display for the duration of April.
We have launched a Personalisation Service with our new range of City Lux Umbrellas, with the option of Monogramming up to 4 initials on the special Leather Fastener.

If you’ve been to our Spitalfields store recently, you would have seen that we are currently exhibiting photographic works of East End photographer Chris Dorley-Brown.
Chris has lived and worked in the East End of London for the last 30 years. His photographs document the ever changing social structure of the area with it’s tradition of radicalism, experimentation and innovation.
Having produced and exhibited works with the BBC, The Whitechapel Gallery, ICA and The Museum of London, Chris has an exceptional back catalogue of stunning photographs dating back to the late seventies. It’s this archive that Chris kindly allowed us access to and together, created a small selection to display in our Hanbury Street Shop.
