From UK exclusives to more established brands, discover the best of what’s newly available from the likes of Harrods and Browns
Spring has sprung! Usually, this means lovely things including - but not limited to - milder weather, baby animals, light jackets and the ability to buy a bunch of daffodils alongside a frozen pizza. Now, while the sun occasionally still shines and lambs are still very cute, ‘light jackets’ may perhaps be ‘dressing gowns’ and the frozen food aisle has been raided with but a single Viennetta to its name - no one’s even thinking about daffodils. Another new season joy tends to be new clothes, and although your favourite shops may be temporarily devoid of footfall, all the best pieces are still available on their websites (which you probably knew already, since we have been living in the digital age for quite some time now). Whether you buy or just browse, this is your excuse to indulge in the thrill of the new from the relative safety and comfort of your own home.
Ply-Knits is exclusive to the witty wonder that is Browns. Created by Hong Kong native Carolyn Yim, the brand only uses the finest yarn and Yim herself comes from a family of knitwear designers. A rare instance in which the fight between comfort and style results in a draw, in other words.
Exclusive to Selfridges for this season is L’alingi. All satin and Swarovski crystals, one of its Eternity clutches would definitely be a welcome distraction during self-isolation.
Elzinga is exclusive to MATCHESFASHION. We’d say it was perfect for limiting drama to your wardrobe, as opposed to - we don’t know - your group chat or your household.
This season will be the first in which Harvey Nichols stocks familiar fashion favourite Jacquemus in both womenswear and menswear. There’s a beautiful pop-up devoted to the brand on the first floor, but you’ll have to be satisfied with clickbait for the moment.
Harrods have THIS Taller Marmo dress as an exclusive.
And if you really want your romantic fantasies fulfilled, Maison Coco is an exclusive at Dover Street Market.
RE/DONE + AMINA MUADDI
Exclusive to Net-a-Porter, Amina Muaddi is just one brand that's collaborated with RE/DONE on their #MYREDONES capsule collection. Caro Daur, Savi, Pixie Levinson, Bianca Miro and Hiraki Mori are the others. And yes, it's very hard to select just one piece.
