PurseBlog may be New York-based, but we know we have a lot of readers whose locations reach far beyond our shores. With that in mind, we’re bringing you another edition of The International Edit, in which we scope out the newest wares at our favorite non-American online retailers. With pre-fall and fall deliveries piling up every day, there’s a ton of new stuff to check out below. (more…)
After watching two weeks of stars looking super chic and Cannes and ever-increasing talk of the upcoming World Cup, we’ve been thinking about our international readers (and our favorite international retailers). Below, check out the week’s best new arrivals at online boutiques the world over. (more…)
As spring sale season gets ready to begin and pre-fall deliveries start to trickle in, it’s time for us to again check in on what’s what at our favorite international retailers in this week’s edition of The International Edit. Non-US stores sometimes have sale and delivery schedules slightly different than those we’re used to in the States, but the more globalized the fashion industry becomes, the more things sync up. This week, we’ve spotted a few of our spring favorites that are likely to sell out soon, as well as several things that we’ll be looking forward to wearing come fall.
As you might imagine, looking at handbags for 40 hours a week can get a little bit monotonous, even for the biggest accessories fan. Whenever I feel like I need a fashionable palate cleanser or a new idea on something weird to write about, I always go to the same place: LUISAVIAROMA. Where American retail buys tend toward the staid and neutral, Italian stores like LVR err on the side of bright and edgy, often featuring smaller designers that are far less accessible in the US; aesthetically, they’re the retail equivalent of Anna Dello Russo. Today, our International Edit is all about the weird things you can find at LVR if you just do a little bit of looking.
Now that we’re back from Texas and fully re-adapted to frigid northeastern life, it’s time to get back into our normal routine. That means that I’ve recently spent some time poring over a couple of our favorite non-American retail sites for this week’s edition of The International Edit, and spring has definitely sprung overseas. Below, you’ll find the latest bags, shoes, accessories and clothes from two European retailers, The Corner and My-Wardrobe, which include several European brands that can be a little trickier to come by in the States. (American customers, fret not – these retailers ship to you as well.)
I never thought myself much of an anglophile until I got into fashion. There’s something about London that brings together luxury and innovation in such a playful way that every season, I look forward to London Fashion Week more than any other, even if the names are generally newer and the brands generally smaller. British retailers are also some of my favorites to browse, which is why we’ve selected MATCHESFASHION.COM for this week’s edition of The International Edit.
The site just released a new edition of its print magazine, featuring Lake Bell and some beautiful Oscar de la Renta pieces, and we gave MATCHESFASHION.COM a little edit of our own. Check out our favorites from the site’s most recent arrivals below or shop the whole selection via MATCHESFASHION.COM.
I don’t know what the weather is like right now for our European friends, but based on the new arrivals we found for this week’s edition of The International Edit, it should be warm and sunny over there aaaaany minute now. (Except for in Scotland. As I understand it, it is never warm and sunny there.) Today, we’ve gathered lots of spring-appropriate prints, both on bags and clothing, plus a few open-toed shoes to go along with them. Oh, and some metallic Saint Laurent sneakers, because why not?

You guys seemed to dig our debut of The International Edit last week, and since we like to keep our Internet friends happy (IRL friends, too, but mostly Internet friends), we’re here to bring you another dose of the bet new arrivals and fashion finds from the finest International retailers in the land. Or in other lands, actually. Their lands are different than our lands. That’s kind of the whole point. Anyway!
Like we mentioned last week, there are a couple of advantages to shopping international retailers, even for US customers. First, buying patterns vary from market to market, which means that stores outside of the US are going to carry different designers and styles than those serving your home territory. Second, international retailers want to encourage shoppers from across the globe to order from them, so they generally make it as easy as possible, and probably far easier (and in many cases, less expensive) than you’re expecting it to be if you’ve never given it a shot. This week, we’re featuring finds from Harrods, LUISAVIAROMA and Matches Fashion.
