So the best new place to shop at now is also one of the oldest. Yep, multi-label store Robinsons has just introduced not one, not two, but a whopping 26 established and emerging labels to its stable.
That makes it one of the coolest (and most comfy) shopping experiences here in our book - but we’ll let the labels speak for themselves.
Some noteworthy new names in the shoe department include KG Kurt Geiger, the British footwear label’s more modern and trendy diffusion line, and Julian Hakes, whose famous sole-less Mojito heel (above) is currently being showcased in London’s Victoria & Albert Museum’s Shoes: Pleasure & Pain exhibition. (Don’t worry - they’ll give you more pleasure than pain.)
Yosi Samra, the brand behind the popular foldable ballet flat, is also part of the new line-up. If you desperately need a pair of comfy slip-ons to save you from the sore ankles that come with hitting the clubs all night in heels, you know where to go.
Apparel-wise, shop quality pieces that won’t break the bank from 40-year-old British label Jigsaw. Must-haves include the laid-back ponchos (very ’70s!) and jeans.
Another fashion highlight is Blaque Label, whose wearable looks with an edge have garnered a celebrity following that includes Olivia Palermo, Reese Witherspoon and Vanessa Hudgens.
Also coming to Robinsons: Familiar names like DKNY, Armani Jeans. Etro, Kenzo, Rabeanco, French Connection and Kenzo, and new faces Bakker Made With Love, ba&sh and Jacqueline de Yong.
The best part is, the boyfie won't have to sulk in a corner while he waits for you to finish shopping — there's a whole range of exclusive offerings, from made-to-order homegrown brand Haber to denim label Closed.
Each piece from the new selection was hand-picked by the store’s buyers to go with its Fall-Winter 2015 theme, Lost in Bohemia. Quite apt, considering the resurgence of the boho ’70s on the runways, no? We heart.
