im not too familiar with edinburgh but if you look into the department store 'harvey nichols' they may carry a few of the lines you are looking for?

I'm going to Edinburgh in June, so this thread needs bumped
I know there is Louis Vuitton store, but is there a Chanel in Harvey Nichols?
Also I need Borders

No Chanel I'm afraid here in Edinburgh
The LV store is right next to Harvey Nichols.
Got plenty of Borders too! I love that place (lolimageek).

As an Edinburgh resident who shops there every weekend i'm prob best answering your questions!

There is no Chanel available in Edinburgh.

Harvey Nichols has alreaqdy been mentioned in terms of department stores. There is also Jenners... this has however gone down hill a little since being taken over from House of Fraser. Both stock designer clothes... although Harvey Nichols is def the place for the higher end stuff. Much more NOW than Jenners. Worth a mention is also Frasers and John Lewis... Again a step down the ladder in terms of High end stuff.

The next main street to consider is Multrees Walk just beside Harvey Nichols. Off the top of my head there is LV, Armani, Mulberry, Oscar and Fitch, CK, and a few more but cant remember... just google Multrees Walk.

After that is George St... Loads of High End High St here and a few designer names. Gant, Jack Wills, Hobbs, Whistles, Karen Millen, Jigsaw, Phase 8, White Company, Rohan, Crombie, Kinross Cashmere, Joe Mallone, LK Bennett oh and Cruise which is a designer store with Prada and Gucci for women mainly.

Lastly my fav shopping st is at the west end... William St... has alot of little shops with interesting 'nice' individual designer items... Ark Angel and Hellen Bateman are my fav's

Thanks for all this info. It is all very helpful

Is Borders easy to get to? Is it central?

We have a Cruise up here too but ours only deals with accessories,is it the same with the one in Edinburgh?

I agree about Jenners. I had really high expectations of it but it's no different to any other department store.

I've lived in Edinburgh all my life and i have to say the shops are pretty crap! I think Glasgow is so much better but that's just my opinion.

I think to be fair to Edinburgh it has got alot better in recent years with the addition of Multrees Walk... However... that said Glasgow is better for the shops... but at the same time they are so spread out... I dont know I just think im a bit of a snob and prefer the ambiance of Edinburgh!

Jenners is def well down hill now... it is such a shame as it used to be so fab!

Honestly though if you have not been to william st though you must go... its fab!

I can't wait to go to Edinburgh on Monday
Another annoying question: Does anyone know where I can get Vogue Nippon? Or any other Fashion magazines? I'm assuming there is a WHSmith?
