“I love the area around the Frieze offices in Shoreditch. Things are always changing, so there is usually something new to discover, but I have some long-term favourites here, too, like Labour and Wait for homewares, Mast Brothers for fantastic chocolate and the tiny Santa Maria Novella pharmacy for soap and other beautifully fragranced products. Artwords bookshop is also tiny, but extremely well-stocked with great art books and magazines. I often go there to buy gifts and end up buying something for myself as well. And then for lunch there’s Rochelle Canteen; the menu is brief and seasonal and chef Margot Henderson’s food is always fantastic. Plus, in the summer you can sit outside and straw hats are provided.”
