While we may be nearing the end of summer, this September promises to be full of art, design and plenty of fashionable people. With London Fashion Week cropping up in the middle of the month as well as London Design Festival, there’s fashion and culture, art and design for everyone. If alfresco dining is more your thing, then there’s still time to sit outdoors by the Thames and bask in the warm evening sun on one of our beautiful summer terraces. Here’s to a colourful and creative September in London.
St Martins Lane turns 18!
Our beloved, youthful and charming London hideaway, St Martins Lane turns 18 on Thursday 7 September. Set in the heart of the bustling Theatre district in London’s Covent Garden, St Martins Lane is a dramatic and daring evolution on English luxury and makes for a truly hidden gem. St Martins Lane is loved by many - and is #NowLegal. Happy Birthday!
One Vintage Pop-Up Shop at Sanderson (15 - 19 September)
For London Fashion Week, Sanderson hosts 'One Vintage', a unique luxury brand that reworks antique textiles and relics to create contemporary and flattering new pieces. The brand's mission is to transform the old into wearable, contemporary new garments - caring about not depleting the world's natural resources, they purchase antique textiles from local vendors and transform them into unique, head-turning fashion.
London Design Festival (16-24 September)
As the design capital of the world, London knows a thing or two about art, architecture and all things creative. The London Design Festival includes hundred of exhibits, making it the perfect chance to explore craft and design as it’s very best. In celebration of these thriving scenes, we couldn’t be prouder to announce Mondrian London as a key partner, celebrating the festival with two unique events…
