The costume jewellery range, for which the brand is famous, is at ground level, along with original pieces by Stanley Hugler. But to the left of the jewellery showroom, a gated stairway leads to vintage heaven. Up here, rails of beaded dresses that once shimmied to the charleston are ready to party once more. You’ll also find ultra-feminine Edwardian white lace dresses, bought by brides-to-be. And if you’ve ever fancied delivering the line ‘I’ll just change into something more comfortable’, then one of the exotic silk kimonos should do the job. There are later vintage surprises here too. Collectable 1950s novelty bags – such as raffia animals – are another Butler & Wilson strength.

My favourite shop ever. The shine brings you in

Great selection of unique fashion and costume jewellery by Simon Wilson. There's something for everyone

I'm an American who has lived in London for 17 years and long ago ran out of unique and unusual places to take visiting friends and relatives--until I discovered this quirky and gorgeous store. Forget taking people to Selfridges and Harrods if they are interested in very modern or retro fashion, especially clothing, jewellery and handbags. Come here instead. The Christmas and summer sales are amazing, and I still get rave reviews when I wear a gorgeous embroidered jacket that I bought on sale here years ago. I also managed to find earrings that match a green rhinestone 1950s necklace that my mother wore when young. It's no surprise that costumers buy items here for films and tv shows or that the company now sells on QVC (although I'd rather that the company kept the place secret so I don't have to share my finds). I absolutely love browsing this store, and it's just around the corner from Bond Street tube station, so go somewhere unusual before it becomes ordinary.
