When I knew that Marc Jacobs opened his first UK boutique in London, I just had to go there and have a look.
It is not on Bond Street or Sloane Street, where fashion boutiques cluster. It is on the quiet and quaint Mount Street in the center of Mayfair, although it is not too far from the hustle and bustle of Bond Street and Oxford Street.
The approachable staff members were exceptionally friendly and helpful, answering all my questions, as I was browsing all the luxurious handbags. The atmosphere was very easy and relaxing.
Just as I was going through to the men’s clothing section, I noticed some funky T-shirts with bright colors and catchy prints. To my surprise, they were only 14 pounds. (Some of them were made for charity.) I was not planning to buy anything, but if I could find something I liked at 14 pounds by Marc Jacobs…why not? And I did. I found a salmon-pink top with nice subtle patterns. There were also some affordable hats and belts (around 30 pounds) to choose from.
Overall it was a very good experience. I didn’t expect to stay for almost 45 minutes and I didn’t expect to buy something without seriously damaging my bank balance. I will definitely go back again. Even though I still won’t be able to afford any quilted handbag, at least I know the service and atmosphere will be enjoyable.
