There is a sense of magic as you walk down Chiltern Street in Marylebone. The Portman Estate has invested to date some £700,000 to transform the street into a specialist shopping destination. It has been revived into a luxury hub of culture, fashion, beauty and lifestyle following the arrival of a number of distinctive specialist boutiques that have been chosen to open their businesses and enhance its natural charm. While it has been modernized for a new generation of cosmopolitan visitors, Chiltern Street retains a timeless quality and the atmosphere lent by its historical features. Several long–established businesses remain, with a loyal local and well as international clientele.
The street is awash with style and the ultimate destination for bespoke menswear at the height of trend, Chiltern Street boasts a coveted array of London’s best designers to cater for the sharpest of dressers, including the eponymous menswear label Archer Adams and unique international store Trunk Clothiers. These boutiques sit alongside Sunspel, a brand, which has revamped itself over the last few years and pops up in some of the most trend-led destinations. Chiltern Street is also home to Pauline Burrows, a bespoke menswear and womenswear designer, and Mouki the womenswear concept store, sets the fashion crew’s pulse racing. It is no surprise Chiltern Street was recently named ‘London’s coolest street’ in Condé Nast Traveller.
There is a buzz on the street as several new tenants take position. We are proud to welcome Cox and Power, a well known contemporary jeweller who works in precious stones and metals and of course the Chiltern Firehouse, the first UK hotel from hotelier André Balazs, a fabulous addition to his infamous US collection. The Chiltern Firehouse boutique opens on the 16th of February and will house 26 stunning rooms. Executive Michelin star Chef, Nuno Mendes operates the large open kitchen which is one of the main features of the hotel; it is his honour to provide you with exquisite plates that will dance on your palette and the most pleasurable New York style dining experience.
It is obvious Chiltern Street attracts the most prestigious and unique traders, some are new and some have been part of the destination’s journey for over 30 years. Cire Trudon, the luxury candle store is a key destination for anyone who enjoys the art of fragrance. If you have an eye for art then Atlas Gallery will be a stop for you. Music Lover then Howarth of London is one for you; for a more alternative sound then its Jas Musicals.
