The FT chooses its top four London boutiques
…Lucia Silver’s L Boutique is unique in another way: it makes you feel like an extra in an Agatha Christie movie.
Her designs have a strong retro feel: Silk “Butterfly” tops with lace trim at the neck (£285), cowl- neck slip dresses and tops can be made in up to 70 colours from £275; Mao jackets in embroidered velvets (£395), 1940′s-style silk underwear sets (£195); piano shawl-style throws that can double as skirts (from £995).
These are sold alongside a selection of vintage jewellery and head pieces that can be made to order.
