I’ve never been to the United Kingdom but it’s a destination I have long dreamed of visiting someday (wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Europe too). When my sister-in-law brought back this LV piece for my wife, the big tag screamed “New Bond Street”. As it turns out, the original Bond Street is a landmark for all things sophisticated.
London’s famous Bond Street is revered throughout the world for its wealth of elegant stores, exclusive brands, designer fashion, luxury goods, fine jewels, art and antiques. Set in the heart of Mayfair, in London’s popular West End and encompassed by many of the world’s most outstanding hotels and restaurants, Bond Street is a landmark for all things sophisticated. Since its foundation in 1700, Bond Street has been the playground of society’s wealthiest most stylish and influential people. Past residents of the street include Admiral Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton as well as a number of renowned authors and poets. Today, over 300 years on, Bond Street remains a much-loved destination for celebrities, socialites and the international jet set. — Bond Street History
