Going to London anytime soon? We’ve got some advice for you straight from one of the coolest designers we know: Rosie Assoulin. Assoulin recently hopped the pond to attend the British Fashion Awards, in partnership with Swarovski, where she bedazzled superstars such as Camille Charriere and Maggie Jiang in her Atelier Swarovski by Rosie Assoulin collection. See here for a moving example of the collection.

“London during holiday season [is a favorite of mine]! I wanted to ice skate at Hyde Park, but I kept leaving the hotel wearing Paul Andrew sling-back slides and no socks so it never panned out,” she told us the day after the awards.

Here, a list of her go-to spots if you happen to find yourself in London and in the mood for some chicness.


Ottolenghi for Miso Tahini.

Loulou’s for the cushy décor.

Chucs for eggplant parmesan and Cacio e Pepe.

Dishoom for Indian food.

The Ivy Chelsea for virgin Bloody Mary’s.

Mews of Mayfair for post-shopping cocktails.

The Swarovski Center for Learning at the new Design Museum. "The scope, scale and comprehensiveness of the abstract expressionist show at the Royal Academy were truly incredible."


The Chiltern Firehouse. "I am a sucker for a fancy, over-accessorized spot with cocktails, indoor plants and some eccentric décor."
