Our second home is located in Notting Hill on a central spot on Westbourne Grove. This particular store's location has an incredibly rich history, and around the time it was first journaled to exist it was contemporarily known as Westeburn. During the 1700s it was a rural area to have five main large houses, one known as Westbourne Place (or Westbourne House) which through the building's lifetime was home to many historical figures such as the famous architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell, and 1st Baronet Sir William Yorke. Throughout history, this area has remained a fashionable place to live, and in the past century, a hot spot for shopping. This store has a loft-style set up spanning across four different levels to explore. Our organic coffee is available here, and just like our Park Walk store, you will be greeted by our immersive Island Life feeling.
Now a bustling High Street for browsers, shoppers and locals, Westbourne Grove is a vibrant spot with a long list of popular brunch places, and a handful of great stores, it is also only a stone's throw away from the iconic Portobello Road, and its famous weekend market.
Our latest London pop-up store is located on St. Christopher's Place, in the heart of Marylebone. In an area which is dominated by restaurants, our newest home sits snugly in a quiet Place just minutes away from the buzzing of Oxford Street.
St. Christopher is the patron saint of travel, and the protection of travellers, Love Brand & Co. is a resortwear brand designed for the discerning traveller, and as such, we found the perfect spot for our newest store. Dating back to the late 1760s, this street has been the site of many different shops, restaurants and homes through its time. The name of the pedestrian street came from the social reformer and one of the founders of The National Trust, Octavia Hill, whose family owned multiple homes nearby, and reportedly "The world would fancy it was named after some old church; and I should hear the grand old legend in the name. Is it too fantastic a name?"
See you in store soon!
