West Thirty Six Golborne Road

This is the time of year when I get asked about my favourite London hangouts for all those guide-to-LFW type features. In truth, I’m a creature of habit. West London is my stomping ground and I’m loathe to venture East if I can help it. So here’s a new West London eaterie to add to the list – West Thirty Six.

WHERE: Situated in Golborne Road, a stone’s throw from Portobello, this characterful street is one of London’s unspoilt (for now) hidden treasures. Continue reading

Porter Magazine Ryan McGinley Natalia Vodianova

Porter has finally found its voice as a magazine for independent, cultured, grown up women. While it’s powered by Net-a-Porter, thankfully it’s not just another shopping magazine, the shoppable content is balanced with profiles and features on non-fashion subjects too. Continue reading
