Sarah Burton has officially taken over at the house of McQueen, but not too long before his death, Alexander created his finale Fall collection — and Browns just got it in. Even if you don't have a few grand to fork over, behold the intricacies, the regal details, the beauty in each piece. And if you do, here's your chance to be part of a genius that will live on forever.
TheOutnet.com has some stiff competition coming its way. London's Browns boutique just launched its version of discount shopping with a subsite called LabelsforLess. The name says it all: the new site stocks an abundance of designer clothes and accessories — from Christian Louboutin, Marni, and Donna Karan — marked up to 70 percent off. Sweet. If I had the extra cash, I would jump on these rad Dries Van Noten Print Pumps ($339, originally $561), but they're still too rich for my blood.
London designer Osman Yousefzada is open to collaborations. If you recall, he designed a collection for Mango back in March and now he's collaborating with Browns. Buying director Erin Mullaney sums it up best: "Osman has created the perfect capsule collection comprised of his best-selling shapes in pale pink, coral, indigo and black jersey," she said of the collection, inspired by Edwardian tailoring and architectural shapes.
The Shoe Goddess reports on the opening of a Browns concept store that will benefit shoe lovers worldwide.
Is there such a thing as a trendy classic? I say yes. The camel coat is back in full throttle. Designers have taken this hue and turned it into a variety of cozy styles. Take a look at Keira Knightley. The actress recently showed off her chic camel trench on the set of Last Night. I like how the longer length lends instant drama. This toasty color can be little tricky so choose a hue that complements your skin tone.
Luxury lovers, this one's for you. Browns is one of London's most important fashion destinations and has been around since 1970. If you can't get yourself to the UK, find your way to this online shop, pronto! You'll see stunning clothing and accessory items from Matthew Williamson, Missoni, Alexander McQueen, Fendi, Diane von Furstenberg and more. There's even a special section for brides.
