A European Website that sells deeply discounted ($50 for a Versus skirt) Marni, Balenciaga, Prada—as well as every Antwerpian ever to get a “new talent” write-up in Vogue. “It’s the top of the top,” raves Polly Mellen, a devoted fan. “It’s so great to get the Belgians without having to go uptown,” adds loyalist Vanessa von Bismarck.
Founder Rachel White serves as a strictly confidential depot for women who find themselves with more designer bags than they can carry (editors, stylists, celebs . . . you know who you are). Most are actually tags-on brand-new (like the one-of-a-kind sable Selleria, a gift from Fendi to someone), and all are discounted. Skip the waitlist and have a Birkin by Friday.
This online magazine/boutique based in London offers collections by Americans and hard-to-find cool Brits (Temperley, Clements Ribeiro). Check out the sales—$600 for a Roland Mouret trench! This is a bargain, trust us.
