Since opening on London’s King’s Road in 2004, Austique has become renowned for stocking a selection of secret, luxury and feminine labels from around the globe. From beautiful gifts to fashion and accessories for women, the fashion-forward store stocks everything the contemporary woman could need. Taking a personal approach to their business, Austique have created a unique, friendly retail experience.
Alongside well-known brands such as Markus Lupfer, Alice + Olivia, Goldsign and Zimmermann, Austique also supports young and upcoming designers, with many of their labels unable to be found anywhere else in the UK.
Austique’s own clothing label is also taking the UK by storm, with their range of dresses and jackets supplying occasionwear perfect for weddings, garden parties, dinners and gala events. In block colours and vintage prints, the pieces are easy to wear and transcend seasons and trends.
In 2011 Austique opened their second store in Marylebone High Street. Founded on the same philosophy as their Chelsea flagship, it has soon become a new shopping destination on the much-coveted High Street. Austique’s Marylebone store also hosts their brand new personal shopping suite, where you can receive VIP treatment in the privacy of Austique’s exclusive showroom.
