But it’s not just bargains that bring Sophie to London. It’s the famous style that the city is known for. In particular bespoke tailoring and craftsmanship, from fine shirts and suits to custom-made shoes, that range from the staunchly traditional to modern and chic.
Sophie also went to London to follow in the footsteps of the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond. The man is known for tailored suits and shirts from London’s famed Savile Row, Swiss-made Omega watches and for his most famous drink, the Vesper Martini (“shaken, not stirred”). It’s a sort of super martini that combines vodka, gin, and a product no longer available, Kina Lillet, a French aromatized wine that gives the Vesper its distinct, bitter edge.
