I have been a big fan of wearing limited, one of a kind and special pieces since a very young age – yet the struggle was to find them then. Today, I’m  grateful for the existence of Browns.

Recognised as one of the world’s most iconic fashion retailers, today including two central London stores as well as a global online flagship, brownsfashion.com, Browns has been operating for almost half a century.  Differentiating themselves through a determination to find the world’s most talented designers, whether established or emerging and then to buy only the very best pieces, Browns have discovered the likes of  Alexander  McQueen,  Galliano  and  Chalayan  but  also  more  recently, have uncovered  a  new  generation  of  designers  such as Christopher Kane.   It doesn’t get more experienced then that!

During  my  last  visit  to  New  York  I  got  a  chance  to  wear  my  Valentino  camouflage  shirt  and  Gucci  denim,  fresh  from Browns rails on South Molton Street. A statement look yet on point, modern but traditional, recognisable yet exclusive.  Make sure you pay Browns a visit, either in store or online, as for SS 16 they have put together an edit of the best menswear design, led by new Menswear Buying Manager, Dean Cook.  Along with cult and superbrands, Browns continue to champion new design talent – the SS16 edit includes new  talent  such  as  Kazuyuki  Kumagai    an  avant-garde  Japanese  footwear  designer,  and Curieux,  a London-based brand  offering  timeless pieces  with  contemporary  edge.  These brands, amongst many other exclusive pieces, are only to be found at Browns this season – the next step in an exciting future.  Proudly feeling part of the legacy.
