The football season is in full swing and Chelsea are at the top of the Premier League. So in honour of CFC, here is a list of my five favourite blues on the King’s Road
The Bluebird The Café or forecourt for lightbites and the restaurant for British dishes with a contemporary twist. The cocktail bar is the busiest on a Saturday night where you might have to wait a while at the bar. And of course, there is the Epicerie and Wine Shop.
The right hand entrance into the clothes shop is my favourite part. It is a museum of style and its current bestsellers include Isabel Marant, J Brand jeans, Woolrich Arctic Parkas (even though it is summer) and especially for the men, Orlebar Brown swim shorts.
There is also a wonderful spa, which sells Micheline Arcier, Ole Henriksen and Malin+Goetz products.
Facial Fuel Kiehl’s skincare range for men all wrapped up in blue. My boyfriend is a big fan of the Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men. For women, I recommend Midnight Recovery Concentrate also from Kiehl’s.
Made In Italy This is my favourite Italian on the King’s Road and there is nothing better than sitting on its terrace during a beautiful summer’s afternoon, next to those large blue ceramic plant pots, and devouring the tastiest pizza on the street.
Chelsea Library Through a set of blue doors, this is a wonderful building with plenty to offer including a first floor art gallery and an antique or fashion sale on the ground floor every now and again.
And finally, the Sir Carol Reed blue plaque on 213 King’s Road which I love.
So come on you Blues. Make us proud again!
