Tate Britain has the triennial on... and Tate Modern has a great permanent collection and cool exhibit space.

We are going to London on Friday the 14th, so we are only able to go to the market on Friday or the weekend.

Would you recommend going to the Victoria&Albert Museum, or The Fashion and Textile museum, or both? If anybody has some recommendations about other nice exhibits or galleries that would be great!

london!!
hi, this is probably the wrong place to post this, but i'm leaving for london on monday (yeeeey), and I was wondering if any of you stylish londoners (or frequent visitors) in here had any cool tips on what to do and see while in the city (i'm thinking some things that aren't too typical)? i am staying until next saturday so i have quite a while....thanks!

hmmm well id say shopping on portobello is a must and hanging out, eating lunch all around there. go on a friday is less touristy, is where sienna and keira K live, is really nice area. also around east london is pretty cool, a nice bar called cargo on rivington street and any bars around there on weekends are fun. primrose hill is nce, where kate moss and jude law live, also good for coffee,peoplewatching- all these places are quite expenisive and chic not really 'cool'! for cool id say bars and pubs around camden etc but i cant remember anyspecifics as havent been there for ages! hope this helps, of course shopping id say covent garden, notting hill, soho

I don't think Selfridges carries Superfine. You're best bet is either Harvey Nichols (which I know carry both) or probably Browns Focus on South Molton (about two minutes away from Selfridges)

Does Marc Jacobs owns a store in London? And what about Urban Outfitters in Oxford St., is it worth?

There is no Marc Jacobs store in London but it's stocked extensively in many many boutiques and of course in Harvey Nicholes, Selfridges, Liberty and Harrods.

The Urban Outfitters on Oxford Street is definitely worth a look-in, stocks lots of vintage labels, See by Chloe, Sonia Rykiel, Erotrikros.

^You're not likely to find ANY of those products in London..... don't they sell them in Singapore???

By suspender store, do you mean like braces? Or like garter belts? I have no idea what you mean....
