It helped John Galliano, Hussein Chalayan and Christopher Kane become household names, and now it’s set to continue lending a helping hand.
One of London’s most iconic boutiques, Browns, renowned for helping to kick-start the careers of fresh young designers, will help two of its latest ‘babies’ to build their up-coming labels.
Browns is supporting illustrator Beatrice Boyle and fine jeweller Natasha Collis by wholesaling their collections this autumn. Oh, did we mention that Collis just so happens to be the granddaughter of Browns’ founder Joan Burstein? Handy.
In collaboration with Browns Focus, Boyle’s label, Beatrice Boyle for Browns Focus, consists of staple basics , T shirts, vests, leggings and hoodies , all printed with her graphic edgy illustrations of women with mascara-smudged eyes, whilst Collis’ collection features delicate gold jewellery finished with precious stones in diamonds and sapphires, which she designed in her studio in Ibiza.
According to WWD, the two designers will show their collections at Tranoi in Paris from 2nd – 5th October. It’s rather refreshing to see such an iconic store support young talent, isn’t it?
