THIS WEEKEND IN: LONDON
London’s extraordinary sales started on December 26, and they’re on until January 31, so now’s the best time to visit the glamorous British capital. The sales are replete with coats, boots, handbags and gloves made from high-ticket materials like python, cashmere and mink: grab a Marni coat at half off (left), Prabal Gurung jacket at a 40 percent discount (right) or a Dior Homme coat at an incredible markdown (center). The winter sales in London are the time, and the place, to score a real deal.
There are two new places you have to hit while in London. Have dinner at Pont St, where chef Sophie Michell offers updated British classics (left) and follow up with drinks at Gin Joint, which specializes in gin-infused bespoke cocktails (right). thompsonhotels.com/hotels/london/belgraves and barbican.org.uk
While in London, also make sure to catch the Tate Modern’s “Paul Klee – Making Visible” exhibit, a major retrospective focusing on the artist’s time at the hub of modernist design, the Bauhaus. Runs until March 9. tate.org.uk
