Established in 1969, by husband and wife team Helene and Barrie Rapaport, this independent boutique is located on Esher High Street adjacent to Sandown Racecourse. Originally one unit, it has expanded to three interconnecting spaces showcasing contemporary labels and a diverse selection of accessories.
Our buying team maintains a strong vision for the store. The emphasis has always been placed on carrying carefully edited collections consisting of beautiful unique pieces, highlighting the individual creativity of the designers. Because our buyers have such a clear direction, they are constantly searching for new brands that are unafraid to push the boundaries and express their true talents rather than being motivated by commercial success, moving away from products valued on status. A world for open-minded experimental thinking.
We aim to be a spiritual home for brave directional women who strive to be individual. The honesty and warmth of the staff encourage our clients to be open-minded and experimental with confidence. The unimaginable luxury of having so many edited brands under one roof means the client can always find the unexpected.
