LDNR Soho Kingly Sunglasses (Black & Gold Tort)

LDNR

Anyone who was ‘hip’ came to Kingly Street to hang out, and get kitted out in a vast array of brilliant boutiques. There was Lord John, Lady Jane, I was Lord Kitchener’s Valet and John Stephen – once known as the ‘King of Carnaby Street’ with his string of super cool shops under different names. As well as making the sharp suits for the 60’s Mods, Stephen’s clientele included the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, the Kinks, the Small Faces and Jimi Hendrix.

SOHO is an area of the City of Westminster and part of London’s West End. Long established as an entertainment district, for much of the 20th century Soho had a reputation as a base for the sex industry in addition to its night life and as a location for the headquarters of leading film companies. Since the 1980s, the area has undergone considerable transformation. It is now predominantly a fashionable district of upmarket restaurants and media offices, with only a small remnant of sex industry venues.
