So, we decided to celebrate all things Chiswick by taking a tour of some favourite haunts for our last summer newsletter. To celebrate our sunny mood we're also offering 20% off our fabulous Spring/Summer 2023 fashion lines, including some gorgeous summer dresses from Aspesi, Gentryportofino and Evi Grintela. To go with them we have some super new accessories including the cutest Capaf wicker handbags, chic sunglasses from goodlookers and some smart summer jewels from Tess Van Ghert and Salvatori. Enjoy the browse and hopefully we'll see you soon on the Terrace.
Cafe culture is a big part of Chiswick life and we have plenty of places to perch on the pavement. Do it in high Italian style with Piazza Sempione's graphic summer trouser suit and Capaf's wicker boat bag.
May and June are the best months in Chiswick with front gardens bursting with the prettiest roses, wisteria and hydrangeas. Blend in with equally eye-catching TVG accessories in twinkling diamonds and the palest pastels.
We couldn't have planned it better ourselves: our new sunglasses from goodlookers come in some lovely summer colours, including the perfect matching pink for our favourite summer shirt dress from Gentryportofino.
This year's summer fair was a triumph with dozens of fantastic food stalls, great music and some thrilling fun fair rides. Salvatori's twinkling quartz earrings are equally fun and playful and match that blue summer sky.
One of the things we like most about Chiswick is that it manages to balance a relaxed vibe with a little chi-chi chic-ness. Its a nice combination and our classic Evi Grintela striped shirt dresses guarantee you'll look the part.
Who doesn't love the glorious mural outside Tamp coffeeshop? It brings a smile to our face every time we nip in for a smoothie. We also love the way the unusual apricot colour of Gentryportofino's linen dress stands out against the rich tones.
And where would we be without brilliant Lea & Sandeman, which is always packed to the rafters with delicious champagne and rose throughout the summer months. Just make sure you bring along a chic little bag of cash as you stock up for those garden parties.
Boy has it been hot out there this week. And aren't we lucky to have so many pretty parks and pubs to escape to when it's sizzling inside. One of our favourite corners is the wild flower meadow in Turnham Green park which makes our broderie Anglais dress look even more romantic than usual.
We can't not mention everyone's favourite florist, Wheelers. They do all our floral work and send me bunches of flowers every birthday. Capaf's skilfully made wicker bags fit perfectly with their relaxed natural displays.
A great Chiswick secret is Foster Books which is stacked to the rafters with vintage keep-sakes. It is a good spot for sourcing smart unconventional presents to match Evi Grintela's eye-catching and unusual green dress.
High Summer Drop
And, last but not least, here's a little peak at some of the last few high summer pieces that have just landed from Milanese brand Maliparmi. Just in time to pack for those longed for summer holidays...
