Shopping NYC: How to Find London Designers in New York

London is most often thought of as short stop on the fast-paced timeline of Fashion Month. However, in recent seasons the city has stood out as being at the forefront of fashion that pushes the limits and celebrates both historically revered design houses and emerging upstarts. Luckily, it’s quite easy to get into the London swing of things across the pond in NYC, as the city is host to some of the foremost British labels. Read on for some of our top British picks from the spring collections.

London Designers NYC: Topshop


1.) Somehow, Topshop manages to brilliantly toe the line between giving us a dose of British High Street fashion while also dishing up serious ready-to-wear on the runway. This hot-pink wool coat is a statement piece with a meticulously cut silhouette. Topshop, 608 Fifth Avenue.

London Designers NYC Anya Hindmarch

Anya Hindmarch

2.) The Brit Anya Hindmarch’s accessories are pretty much guaranteed to make us smile. For spring she bedecked her leather goods with bright, graphic motifs and emoji faces. This tote, with a detachable shoulder strap, has us dreaming of the sunny days ahead. Anya Hindmarch, 795 Madison Avenue.

London Designers NYC: Burberry


3.) For over a 150 years, Burberry has been a legendary purveyor of trench coats and is currently one of the fashion houses leading the way in the see now-buy now (shop straight from the runway) trend. Once their London Fashion Week show finishes, the entire collection will be instantly shoppable. For now, we recommend a classic gabardine cape to keep out the rain on either side of the Atlantic. Burberry, 131 Spring Street.

London Designers NYC: Simone Rocha 

Saks Fifth Avenue

4.) Simone Rocha has led the pack in London designers making romantic clothes that are also fit to be worn in the 21st century. Her laser-cut, floral high-top leather sneakers are a cheeky way to adopt the clean, white sneaker trend in a very high fashion way. Saks Fifth Avenue, 125 East 57th Street.

London Designers NYC: Smythson


5.) One of the top leather good makers in England, Smythson, has a Royal Warrants from the Queen for good reason. Their handmade notebooks continue to be a must-have with their whimsical phrases imprinted on flexible cross-grain leather. Smythson, 667 Madison

London Desingers in NYC: Christopher Kane


6.) The patchwork trend is a must-do this spring, and Christopher Kane does an impeccable job of translating it to easy-to-wear denim. His mid-rise boyfriend jeans feature lace, grosgrain and gingham cut-outs. Pair with a classic white button-up for a very of-the-moment ensemble. Barneys New York, 101 Seventh Avenue.
