St James's London - Fashion, Festivals and Father's Day

Draped in Style 

June in St James’s is always extra special. Last Saturday, heads were turned at the St James’s London Fashion Week Men’s catwalk show, where global style icons and savvy shoppers alike had a chance to see the latest trailblazing looks under the runway spotlights. If you missed it, don’t fret, you can join us until Sunday evening in St James’s Market for the St James’s Edit by Esquire to get a closer look at the key pieces for this season.

The ideal place to treat Dad

With Father’s Day upon us this Sunday, there is nowhere that compares with St James’s for the range of gifts and experiences to celebrate the occasion. There's still plenty of time to pick up a thoughtful surprise from the likes of Jigsaw St James’s Emporium or Ettinger in Fortnum & Mason. Alternatively, visit on the day itself and treat him to a special dining experience from the world class selection of international cuisine such as newly opened Wild Honey or the established Rowley’s, followed by exploring one of the area’s remarkable exhibitions.
