Harvey Nichols was originally founded in 1813 as a linen shop in a terraced house on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane Street in London. Benjamin Harvey passed the business on to his daughter in 1820 who went into partnership with a certain Colonel Nichols. The store began to sell Oriental carpets, silks and luxury goods alongside the linens. Harvey Nichols continued to expand until it eventually needed a new home. The existing Knightscridge store was opened in 1880 and has grown to become one of the most important and upmarket shopping destinations in the world.
Le Bon Marché in Paris is to host an event starting this Saturday (27th August), celebrating the eclectic style & culture of the British Capital. ‘So London‘ will play tribute to the city’s diverse range of fashion, music, art & food.

Any Old Iron is a new men’s boutique in New York’s Lower East Side specialising
in stocking rare and UK-specific menswear. Located at 149 Orchard Street between
Stanton and Rivington, the shop is the brainchild of designer/stylist, Andrew
Clancey and arts-entrepreneur, Christopher Melton.
The shop’s name is rooted in the olden cry of a scrap man collecting metal with his
horse and cart, and also hearkens to Clancey’s family scrap metal business which
was founded in 1872. “Any Old Iron” is also an Old English music hall song which
references a young man’s sartorial dandyism – a quality that is distinctly English
and ever-present in the shop’s design and the legion of British designers featured.
The full London Undercover range can be found in store, so pop in and send our best!
