Portobello Road Market

Today I want to share one of my preferred places with you: Portobello Road Market. It is one of the largest markets in the world and it has food, fashion and numerous antiques and collectibles.

It is open every day, however Fridays and Saturdays are the best! Starting with fruits, vegetables and amazing food, further down the road you can find amazing vintage clothes, new fashion, antiques and the most breathtaking accessories.  The best way to end the day is at one of the local cafés and patisseries!

My favourite bit of the market is the corner with military equipment. Geoffrey Walsh sells World War I and World War II items such as medals, badges and even used gun cartridges. It’s an insightful stroll in time and I never get tired of exploring it!

One tip though: the earlier, the better! On the busiest days with most of the stalls, the crowd can be pretty tiring and overwhelming.

Market opening times

09:00 – 18:00 Monday To Wednesday

09:00 – 13:00 Thursday

09:00 – 19:00 Friday and Saturday

Hope you’ll check it out!

Scoop, a MUST-SEE

Scoop, a contemporary womenswear and accessories trade show, returned to its home this year bigger than ever before. Based in the exquisite Saatchi Gallery, the show hosted over 250 international contemporary designers, introducing new talents and showcasing collections from Nobis, Woden and many more.

Being a jewellery fanatic, I suddenly found myself in heaven. Not to bore you with too many details, here are most elegant yet electric brands:

DECADORN

Their ‘wearable earth collection’ consists of beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind, piece. The used minerals are breathtaking and handpicked mostly from Brazil and Uruguay. Polished and finished in the heart of London, I strongly recommend checking out their products.

S A N S O E U R S

Founded by two Spanish sisters, Sansoeurs jewels have unique shapes that express power and elegance. If you are looking for classy piercings, bold necklaces or diamond earrings, this is as far as you need to go!

XTRA-STAR

Because coloured gemstone jewellers are ageless, XTRA-STAR was hard to miss. Using beautiful coloured materials and contemporary designs, their collections are the embodiment of the modern woman: elegant, strong and beautiful. As they like to say, “Every woman is worth the gem!”

Hand in hand with fashion is food, and Scoop made sure we had the best experience! We enjoyed the shows while savouring a glass of bubbly and some delicious canapés.
