Copenhagen Fashion Week just took off, and other than introducing great Scandinavian brands to the world it also serves as a gentle reminder of how small the world of fashion really has become. Literally hundreds of e-commerce sites little the web. Providing us with great shopping experiences and options beyond the standard Golden Goose sneakers and Fendi handbag. Now that most companies provide world-wide shipping, and our local credit cards are more likely to be accepted internationally, there is litter excuse for sticking to what we know. Here’s to great adventures. Check out these great e-commerce sites that will certainly widen your horizons.
This multi-brand e-shop is based in Tbilisi , again a city we have been focusing on recently. Their handpicked designer brands running the gamut from Thailand to London, is a treasure trove of elegance and modern fashion.
Not to be confused with Luisa Via Roma, Luisa World is actually a Greek boutique and e-commerce site. The strength of this site is in their fantastic edit of traditional luxury designers. If you can’t stay away from Alaia dresses, then we would recommend Luisa for a couple that you have probably never seen before.
We never miss an opportunity to harp on and on and on about how magnificent Fwrd.com is. Filled to the brim with an eclectic selection of designer wear, you will have this website bookmarked in no time. Elyse Walker is a famed stylist owning a number of brick and mortar stores in California. Her e-site Forward brings together the eye of a stylist and the business acumen of a store owner.
The next time you’re in Kiev you should probably pass by Asthik! Till then their e-commerce site should do. This company carries some of the world’s most original brands. Paco Rabanne, Erdem, Khaite and even Off-White. It is not inexpensive but if you are looking for that special something or for mere inspiration, do not miss this one!
Adam Heath Boutique is regarded as one of the best multi-brand luxury retailers in Australia. It is renowned for exceptional customer service, exquisite designer clothing, jewellery and accessories, and multi-generational relationships with designers and customers alike.
Adam Heath was established in 1966 and has grown to become a leader in women’s designer fashion, carrying top Australian and international labels such as MARNI, Dries Van Noten, Anya Hindmarch and MSGM.
By far one of our favorites on this fine list, although their e-commerce platform leaves a lot to be desired… The photos are small, and the layout dated. Nonetheless their selection is supreme, and we aren’t talking about the brand ;).
Although you can just browse the collections like any other site, they have created a particularly interesting feature, one where you create your own store front. Lining up your favorite boutiques so that the next time you enter the e-store you see them first, thus customizing your shopping experience. Ingenious really..
For those of you that appreciate minimalist fashion, this is the site for you. We aren’t great fans of e-commerce sites that want to blog as well.. something this site feels inclined to do. Don’t you just want to get down to seeing the stock without reading about it first! In any case, it has a great selection of minimalist designer fashion.
There is just something about Canadian site SSense. They have a vast collection of women and menswear. Their curated selections are particularly tasteful. From Richard Quinn florals to Barbara Bur separates, there isn’t much you can’t find on this spectacular site. Knowing us Arabs, Im sure it will give you great pride to know that the founder is called Rami Atallah 😉
Leave it to the Australians to create beautiful affordable fashion. In the past two decades they have established themselves as the forerunners in well-priced luxury merchandise. This e-site carries a wide range of womenswear with an emphasis on the women in her twenties and early thirties. Other than the fact that our seasons are opposites, so they are actually showing winter wear now, all is fab!
Not to be confused with Shopbop and Shopstyle, this formidable German e-store is above and beyond. Their selection is vast which means that you can choose from AG jeans, Joseph and Burberry all in one spot. Hard to find nowadays.
