Olympic Shopping: London It-Girls Edition

As Olympic fever hits the UK—and Lucky releases its definitive London shopping guide—we wondered: where do the real British girls shop? How do they deftly manage that enviable British magpie style?

We quizzed three of London’s coolest girls and asked them to share their favorite places. Click through to see where model Poppy Delevigne, designer Saloni Lodha and The Outnet's Stephanie Phair get spenny.

Poppy Delevigne's Pick: The Village Bicycle

Often spotted in the front row at London Fashion Week (and pretty much every Chanel show ever), Delevigne loves mixing high street pieces from Topshop and J.Crew with fancy items from Thakoon and Richard Chai.

The socialite loves The Village Bicycle for its variety. She can pick up a Helmut Newton coffee table book, a skull jewel encrusted telephone, a tee dress from House of Holland, and a vintage velvet jacket by Wondaland all in one trip. She loves the art on the neon lit walls and thinks the play station area for boyfriends is genius. Ask for Willa, the owner.

Stephanie Phair: Alfies Antiques Market

An ex-New Yorker, the director of Theoutnet.com moved to London three years ago.

Phair loves Alfies Antiques Market for inspiration. She's currently renovating a Victorian house in the London neighborhood of Kensington. The place is full of great finds, including very unique collection of chandeliers from the 1970s.

3-25 Church Street, London NW8 8DT


Saloni Lodha's Pick: Juno Says Hello

Lodha is the Indian designer behind one of London’s coolest labels, Saloni. She's known for her fabulous print dresses and loves nothing more than hunting for vintage.

Lodha loves Juno Says Hello for its incredible vintage archive, ranging from 1920s pieces to 1990s Carolina Herrera cocktail dresses. She pops in when she needs a special party dress and asks for Rebecca Rose, the owner, who always finds something perfect the occasion.
