Ask any It-Brit her fashion destination of choice and chances are she’ll say Alex Eagle Studio. For the past eight years, Eagle, who honed her eye while working at Harper’s Bazaar and Joseph, has been delighting discerning shoppers with her London gallery-inspired space. Inside its cheerful red doors, she stocks an expertly curated mix of luxury cosmetics, hard-to-come-by homeware, and subtly chic sartorial staples, including her own collection of elevated essentials made just floors below.
But retail therapy isn’t all the design aficionado is known for: last spring, Eagle, who is expecting her third child next month, debuted the Sporting Club at 180 The Strand (with another location set to open this spring). “I wanted to create a place where the emphasis was not on burning calories but coming together,” she says. The numerous holistic offerings—IV drips, infrared saunas, Pilates, jujitsu, gardening workshops—are best enjoyed in Eagle’s straight-leg joggers and classic cotton polos, which look (and feel) as good during a workout as they do after it.
Here, Eagle shares her Studio must-haves of the moment, from Venetian Murano glasses to the bodysuit she's worn throughout her pregnancy.
"At the moment, the Varsity Jacket is my go-to outerwear piece, paired with our brand new Prince of Wales Suit, Ribbed Vest, and Mayfair cap. It’s smart but relaxed and can take you from day-to-night easily."
"I love a Jo Riis Hanson earring to add to any outfit. Each one is so unique, interesting, and beautiful to look at."
"The importance for me in beauty is ease. I can’t live without Baby Cheeks Blush Stick in Chouchette. It is the best all-rounder. I use it on lips and cheeks, and it fits perfectly in my pocket or bag. I also love the new Complexion Drops, which feel so amazing on your skin and give a beautiful, glowy, even complexion. They’re great for a no-makeup makeup look."
"Our Eagle & Hodges Marble Cubes are one of my favorite discoveries at The Studio. Luxurious and versatile, they can be used as a coffee table, bedside stool, or just as an art piece!"
"I’m eight months pregnant and wear our exclusive halter-neck swimsuit in black or brown as a bodysuit almost daily."
"Frédéric Malle perfume is a very special new addition at Alex Eagle. I have been wearing Portrait of a Lady for years. It has become a part of me."
"Some new Murano Hexagonal Tall Glasses have just arrived at The Studio. I’ve been collecting glasses for years, and these are so beautiful. Everything tastes a bit more special out of Murano glass!"
