All of a sudden, Brompton Cross is back on my radar. The Conran Shop is flourishing again (seriously, you can do all your holiday shopping there in one mammoth swoop), Joseph is getting better and better and there’s an influx of international fashion arriving.
Buying clothes online isn’t always straightforward. Accessories on the other hand? A different story. Monnier Frères, the accessory etailer has one of the best accessory edits on the web, including Celine sunnies, that Acne box clutch and leathergoods from one of my favourite quiet-luxe brands, Valextra.
When you buy from Monnier Frères you get worldwide delivery in 24 hours and guaranteed free returns within 30 days. If you’re still not sold, I have even better news. I’ve been given an exclusive code for my readers that allows you £80 off when you spend £250. Just enter disneyrollergirl80 in the discount code box when you check out. I very rarely do discounts or giveaways on here but Monnier Frères is a great site worth bending the rules for.
If you’re planning on selfgifting a handbag or accessory from the likes of Alexander Wang, Chloe, Valentino or any of those other usual lux suspects, you may as well take advantage of this deal. Here are a few suggestions to get you started…
