Cartier watchWhether travelling for business or pleasure, take the time to indulge in some serious retail therapy at Heathrow this Autumn. Catering for your every want and desire, the airport is home to a wide collection of premium brands including Paul Smith, Prada, Harrods, Gucci and Sony – all at airport prices.  Here are their picks for the ultimate in luxury and opulence this season. Enjoy travelling through time with the elegant Cartier Ballon Bleu watch. Available to purchase from Harrods Heathrow stores for £23,000, the 18 carat white gold timepiece features a case set with round-cut diamonds and Cartier calibre 057 quartz movement. Put pen to paper with the limited edition Montblanc Skeleton A380. Made with 750 white gold and adorned with 42 diamonds, this investment scribe is available to purchase from The Pen Shop and costs £11,086.95. Add the colourful characters of The Dalmore (home to the oldest maturing stocks of any single Highland malt) to your drinks cupboard with the The Dalmore Sirius 1951 available exclusively from the World Duty Free store in Terminal 5 for £10,000. Relish the aromas of intense citrus and honeyed chocolate followed by roasted coffee, crushed walnuts and hints of liquorice spice. With just twelve bottles made, and five already sold, ensure you don’t miss out by going online to World of Whiskies where a limited number are available to pre-order. With thigh-high boots remaining the must-have footwear for Autumn, be sure to check out the sumptuous Paulitta boots from Bally. A step above the rest, these black stretch suede and leather boots cost £1,435 and feature a 130mm brass lace ‘cage’ heel and gilt edge platform. For state of the art eyewear, look no further than the new Pit Boss sunglasses from The Oakley Elite Collection.

There are three lens and frame colour combinations to choose from each costing £425 per pair.

  1. wow heathrow!

    i living in london from last 6 years and i travelled to many airports but heathrow is the best as far as i think,

    any ways thanx a lot for the article . . .

  2. i love the duty free in terminal 5 at heathrow so many shops to choose from and all at duty free prices. makes it worth going through the terminal for that alone. to be fair the rest of heathrow is pretty darn good too, i can’t believe how much better the UK airports duty frees are compared to their american counterparts.
