That London is one of the world’s most fashion-conscious cities is hardly news. The capital that was ‘swinging’ in the 60s has always retained its reputation as a centre of style, with best-selling brands that seamlessly combine an original mix of British heritage and cosmopolitan influence.

There’s always plenty to see in London, from the sights and sounds of the diverse neighbourhoods to the street style that creates a catwalk around every corner. So imagine taking a tour of the city and shopping the London looks without even the need to travel.

Now this is possible as Marks & Spencer, founded in the UK over 125 years ago, brings the best of London style direct to customers in Germany at www.marksandspencer.de

In its Look of London collection, Marks & Spencer takes inspiration from a pick of well-known London hotspots. It includes everything needed to achieve a complete hip vintage look, a relaxing weekend away or a chic evening out on the town - wherever you are.
