English King's Road

King's Road or Kings Road (or sometimes the King's Road, especially when it was the king's private road until 1830, or as a colloquialism by middle/upper class London residents), is a major street stretching through Chelsea and Fulham, both in west London. It is associated with 1960s style and with fashion figures such as Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood. Sir Oswald Mosley's Blackshirt movement had a barracks on the street in the 1930s.

German King’s Road

Die King’s Road ist eine Hauptverkehrsstraße in den westlichen Londoner Stadtteilen Chelsea und Fulham. Sie erstreckt sich vom Sloane Square in Chelsea bis zur Wandsworth Bridge Road in Fulham und setzt sich anschließend als New King’s Road bis zur Putney Bridge fort.

In den 1960er und 1970er Jahren war die King’s Road eines der Zentren der Hippie- und Punk-Kultur mit Geschäften wie „Granny Takes a Trip“ und „SEX“, dem Kleiderladen von Malcolm McLaren und Vivienne Westwood. Mittlerweile ist die King’s Road etwas weniger rebellisch, und viele kleinere und unabhängige Geschäfte haben den großen Marken und Ketten Platz gemacht. Die King’s Road ist immer noch eine der populärsten Einkaufsstraßen Chelseas.

Italian King's Road

La King's Road è una delle strade principali di Londra. Attraversa il quartiere di Chelsea sino alla Sloane Square.

Da sempre via di collegamento dal suo quartiere periferico a Westminster, la King's Road ha assunto maggiore importanza con l'espansione urbanistica della città e negli anni sessanta è divenuta uno dei maggiori centri della moda. Qui la stilista Mary Quant, che possedeva e possiede tuttora un negozietto di abbigliamento, creò la minigonna e sempre presso questa strada oggi risiedono le più famose firme stilistiche e grandi "stores" della moda. In questa strada, in un negozio di elettronica, s'incontrarono Neil Tennant e Chris Lowe da cui nacquero i Pet Shop Boys.

English King's Road

One of London's smartest fashion streets, having evolved from the cutting-edge of bohemia and innovative fashion in the 1960s to a more genteel place to indulge in retail therapy, albeit with a notable presence of trendy young Londoners (including many so called Sloane Rangers). It is a very attractive street that retains the atmosphere of a small town whilst being in the heart of a huge city. There is a huge range of fashion stores from upmarket chains to one-off boutiques, as well as variety of other shops, complimented by cafés, restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs. There is an obvious affluence to the road without any bling or snobbiness. King's Road stretches south-west from here for miles, though the best of the shopping is in the first mile.

L'une des rues les plus élégantes de Londres en matière de mode, ayant évolué dans les années 1960 entre la Bohême à la pointe de la mode et la mode innovante, elle est devenue un lieu des plus distingués. C’est une rue très attrayante qui conserve l’atmosphère d’une petite ville tout en étant au cœur d’une grande ville.

Il y a une richesse évidente sur la route sans bling-bling ni snobisme.
