The London Fashion Pub Crawl- Part II
- Published:15th Jul 2016
The punch tavern
Next was the Punch tavern on Fleet Street, which was named in honour of the founders of Punch magazine who met here. Although there has been a pub on this site since the 17th century, it was re-fitted as a Gin Palace and finished at the time of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, when she drove past on her way to St Paul’s.
Not a Gin Palace anymore but still the home of over 60 kinds of Gin. Freya got snuggled up in her statement piece aka fur coat and posed for us in the wooden doorway.
Crown & Sugar LoafNext door we stumbled into the beautiful Crown&Sugar Loaf. Stunned by its High Victorian grandeur, the cut glass, mosaic floor and period furniture, Freya had a pint of pineapple cider at the Bar. Pineapple?! Oh, and, no, you don´t need glasses; we were just asked to blur all the branding on photoshop.
Ye olde Cheshire Cheese
The next pub was an interesting one. Set over three floors, Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese has been rebuilt shortly after the Great Fire of London of 1666. There has been a pub at this location since 1538. 1538!?! Did you hear that, New York?!
Due to its lack of natural light and very low ceilings it created a very own special charm. Freya had a cheeky Whiskey by the fire. Scotch of course.
The Seven Stars
Next stop was the amazing The Seven Stars. Not only did they have the cutest bar cat in the world but also the whole place felt like a little Parisian refuge in the middle of London. Oh, and the food is absolutely delicious.
To give the grand exterior justice we shot Freya on the street just outside the pub.
Last but not least there was the gorgeous Princess Louise at Holborn. Famous for its rich Victorian interior, the pub was originally built in 1872 and was host to folk clubs run as part of the British Folk revival in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Oh, and many apologies to the gentleman in the far right of the image. We only spotted him in post. If you should ever see yourself, call us and we promise you a nice dress for your wife!
OK; that was our little fashion pub-crawl adventure. We highly recommend you to visit all of them. In one day …and don´t forget to have a pint on us…in each of them.

The elegant geisha - Figure skimming Benika's Bonsai dress cuts a flattering silhouette in a true Japanese fashion. Intricate panelling and a top stitched self-fabric tie belt gives this easy day-dress a beautiful and feminine look.

The stripy tom-boy - This tie-waist full skirt is an easy addition to your summer wardrobe and combinable with nearly everything. It sits at a flattering length just below the knee; with an elasticated waistband at the back it not only makes it a better fit but also adds more volume.
'The 1970's Boho' - Giving a nod to the 1970's, Madelaine's Marvel dress comes in floral-printed chiffons, detailed panelling on the bodice and flat piping. The flattering midi-length and self-fabric waist tie means you can cinch in the waist for some extra definition.
