Hello, end-of-winter sales. We’ve missed you. Statement jackets, cashmere, fur, leather… If you’re smart, you’ll stock up on some amazing, keepsake pieces while the slashes are hot. Although it might be tempting to indulge in present-day trends, we suggest keeping your eyes peeled for timeless, top notch fashions. Here’s your guide on current sales featuring investment-worthy items that will drift amongst future wardrobes with ease.
Encompassing a strong focus on cashmere and luxurious yarns, Jac+Jack designs pieces with the highest quality and integrity. While fast fashion is dominating the industry, this contemporary brand is built on the notion of authenticity. Made of heavy silk georgette with a cotton voile hem panel, the scooped hem “Bosley Shirt” can be worn solo or under sweaters.
A modern fusion of geometrical elements and vintage-esque flairs, Shakuhachi focuses on precisely tailored pieces with strong attention to details and characteristic prints. Check out the brand’s sale for fitted, faux leather pants, oversized jackets, floor length dresses and more. Exclusive to Shakuhachi, this featured Marble Bustier Print reminds us of concrete. So, definitely a stable building block for your closet — if you will.
How can you not feel fondly for a brand that combines an eclectic edge with girlish charm? When comes to Alice McCall’s signature style, you’ll find folk-inspired embellishments adorning eternally feminine silhouettes. This black Motorcycle Coat makes us swoon.
Now is the time to gather favorites from Sass & Bide’s current winter collection (if you haven’t already). Girly silhouettes, lined with masculine accents and edges, are garnished with intricate, hand embroidery. To-kill-for items include the “Beautiful Fool” black leather and wool jacket and the “Mister Blue” woollen caplet.
The brand’s DREAM ON F/W 2014 collection (now 30% off) pays homeage to the flower power or summer of love movement of the 1960’s. Capturing the essence of the “free love ethos,” these pieces are highly spirited accents designed with neat and structured techniques to capture the label’s “marching girl’s uniform” aesthetic. This dress is a bit extravagant for everyday wear, but if you’re going to splurge on something fantastic, this is a good way to go.
Acclaimed worldwide for design and quality of garment finish, WILLOW is a go-to for everyday, comfortable items created with precision and excellence. We’re eyeing this luxurious wool-cashmere boxy style coat with horn toggle fastening.
The quality of Dion Lee’s traditionally tailored pieces continue to stay hand in hand with his ever-growing brand name. A boxy, black tee is a must for any closet, and we’re heels over slim collar for this particular one.
Effortless glamour and luxurious fabrications lie at the helm of AJE. This white “Sansur Sweater,” which is hand-embellished and sits at the waist line, makes us swoon for all the winter wonderlands to come.
With a keen way of merging rock and roll, casual and chic, Winston Wolfe is a haven for uniquely cut leather pieces. This 100% lamb leather, halter neck style dress with pleated bottom is a piece to keep around for throwing on or dressing up with tights, heels and a fur.
Beautiful craftsmanship and interesting color combinations are key ingredients to an adoring Talulah piece. Made with a stretch Ponte, this jacket features spliced leather sleeves and fits like a glove. The perfect A/W staple.
