Hornets shops in Kensington Church Walk are in a unique setting

Hornets shops in Kensington Church Walk are in a unique setting

The bluebells are in the churchyard, opposite the church is a pretty little park, with flowers and benches. Opposite Hornets shops is a formal garden (we always have cushions on the low wall in front of it) All of this country like setting is in the middle of the Royal Borough near the Palace and Kensington Gardens.

 

With all of this and the pub, restaurants and coffee shops, shopping at Hornets isn't just shopping, it's a day out.

The Major's Shoes

The Major's Shoes

A beautiful pair of bespoke shoes by Amesbury. Co London.

With the original hand made trees.

Size 9 1/2 approx.

 

Jason Amesbury is possibly the greatest living bespoke shoe maker. A dapper Bon Vivant and habituate of some of the more interesting Soho watering holes, such as 'The French House'.

He is very much what people call an eccentric, he's not. He is like many of Hornets other customers, a very English and original gentleman, with immense style and dash. Also he has a beautiful and charming lady, who knows about shoes.

If shoe makers could be called artists, he would be one. He is in effect a great craftsman and already a legend.
