I have always loved the shopping of Notting Hill. Whether it’s the great finds on Portobello, the trendy restaurants on Westbourne Grove, or the great boutiques along Ledbury Road, Notting Hill is one of those areas that has it all. But in the last few years, it has become the place to shop for your trendy tot in need of a fashion fix! I was already thrilled about the arrival of Caramel Baby and Petit Aime on Ledbury Road, but then I took a stroll down Kensington Park Road a few weeks ago and discovered yet another favorite find: Couverture!
Couverture is the kind of shop that makes you want to run straight home, replace your dingy pillows with new ones, hide all your cheap, plastic toys, make your home a bit more chic and minimal, AND give your wardrobe a re-think!
You’ll find great women’s fashion, stylish home décor and cool (even vintage) children’s clothing and toys. They stock all the great European kid’s brands like Quincy, Simple Kids, Isabel Marant, Finger in the Nose and Album di Famiglia. It’s also a great place to find unique and beautiful toys and design pieces for the nursery.
Even if you don’t buy anything, a stroll through this shop (or a browse on-line) will encourage a home/clothing/nursery design Rx, which is never a bad thing…
Couverture & The Garbstore, 188 Kensington Park Road, London, W11
