Thanks to the beautiful Suki Waterhouse for the kind words about our new store in an interview on Vogue.com!


Balmain On The Hunt

Just added to the webstore is this absolutely spectacular 1960s Pierre Balmain haute couture brocade + fox fur coat. Pale silk brocade body features a killer (literally) leopard hunt. However, unlike classic hunting scenes the leopards in this scene are fighting back... and winning! Check out the cowardly dog running away from the fight! Trimmed in platinum fox fur, this classic early 60s couture coat is sure to be the gem in your closet.

Lanvin's Making a Cameo

Cameo's have always been a classic statement of femininity in fashion. Lanvin's pre-fall 2012 cameo necklace was no exception. Blogged about everywhere and a fav of Rhianna and other celebs, they sold out fast. Like us, if you've still been coveting this little beauty, you're in luck -- we've got what you need.
