My now pretty regular, Saturday visit to number 35 in Highgate is a highlight of the week, whether it is with a mission to buy, explore the new collection or just have a chat, it is always a pleasurable experience. I have to admit that I usually end up parting with far more money than I intended, but I have never been disappointed by any of my purchases. Andrea’s designs are classics, but with a “twist”, be it the now hallmark, orange lining (sounds horrendous, but works wonderfully) or an unusual sleeve or peplum to a jacket. The fabrics are always of excellent quality and carefully chosen. However, if I had to single out just one aspect where number 35 excels, it would be the level and friendliness of the service. The fact that an item can be made effectively to tailor fit or re-designed to accommodate a particular request (I have a preference for three-quarter sleeves !) is, I believe, unique, in a ready-to-wear collection. I have no hesitation in recommending number 35 to my most discerning of friends and colleagues. Well done and long live number 35!
