NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH: CHILTERN ST., LONDON
Little-known Chiltern Street is located in London’s Marylebone. Previously overshadowed by Marylebone High Street, Chiltern Street is now becoming a destination for savvy shoppers. Trunk carries the most desirable of menswear, with exclusive collaborations from leading brands. Their on-trend eye has just been cast further down the road, with a second store specializing in accessories, Trunk LAB. Grab a coffee with your morning politics at the geek-chic Monocle Café (above). Recently opened, Monocle magazine’s café offers the very best in locally blended coffee, Swedish pastries and Japanese chocolates. At the end of the treet is a stunning Victorian fire station, now being transformed into a 26-suite hotel by Mercer Hotel-owner André Balazs.
