Next Stop LDN

Cris (mfl) has asked me for my picks of the best shops and cafes you have to visit in London so i've made a small list for everyone.

Maison Bertaux
french cakes, I-D editors and alexa chung sipping away at hot chocolate. If the cute decorations don't force you in, then the eclairs will.

A small piece of Selfridges without the big crowds, great range of brands including Lulu Guinness and Paul Smith, there is a great selection of sweets too.

The Royal Art Academy
The exhibition GSK is a must-see and if not, there is william broome stuff for sale in the shop which is the same guy who did the T-shirts for Colette, Marc Jacobs and Topshop. Oh and limited edition t-shirts.

Since Baileys been there, the house that brought us the trench has never been the same. You must see the new collection in person and maybe you'll even walk out with something especially with the low pound. Go to the regent street branch for the best buys.

The Wonder Room at Selfridges
A room full of limited edition luxurys you wish you could buy, the wonder room is everything from Hermes to Viktor&Rolf harlequin dolls.

Go to the one on Marylebone High Street, 50% sales means Missoni dresses for half the price and Herve Leger for a few hundred quid.

Japanese well-cute mid-price clothing, great colours and amazing furs. The only place to go if you are in Covent Garden.
