The Library represents a distinct vision that brings together artisanal and avant-garde designers in a private environment.

The heart of the boutique is written in its name: an extensive fashion library that grows and evolves with its wearers.  From coats and dresses to leather boots, The Library has that piece that never gets old - that piece that matures and changes with you.


For over two decades, The Library has been the go-to treasure trove for those who seek something unparalleled. Nestled in the heart of Kensington, London, the luxury boutique is an exclusive retreat into founder Peter Sidell’s thoughtfully curated collections. Although amidst a plethora of change in the city, in fashion, and in times, The Library remains true to its roots in the unconventional and in pieces and wearers that care. 


Just as people have individual personalities, items too have their own characters born from a process and a place. The Library’s collections are categorised according to the Dewey Decimal System, reflecting the various distinct approaches or genres designers undertake in their process of creation. Whether you like to browse Travel, Architecture, or Literature, the store’s own librarians are a tight knit team knowledgable in finding the perfect piece for you. 


The Library has always, and continues to provide a quiet refuge where individuals can explore and discover the finest avant-garde and artisanal labels. We strive to help you find pieces that speak personally to you, offering a personalised service every time.
