Top Fashion Retailers 2008
Ralph Lauren - Elegant. Tasteful. Timeless. From
apparel and accessories to home décor, every item this American designer
fashions is the epitome of style.
Ralph Rucci - This designer's clothing
collection truly belongs in an art gallery. Rucci's exquisite pieces
reflect superior craftmanship and a keen attention to detail. What makes
Rucci's designs so artistic is outstanding design and form coupled with
a focus on unique fabrics and sumptuous textures.
Yigal Azrouel - Azrouel's effortless looks are
relatively simple, but the styles come alive through jolts of color and
interesting fabric details.
Michael Kors - Tailored and timeless, Kors'
American sportswear collection offers a refreshing sense of effortless,
Kenneth Cole - This New York designer is known
for his sleek, sexy, simple designs that have just enough detail to make
a real fashion statement.
Ralph Lauren - Again, every item in Ralph's
collection draws us into his idealistic world, one of impeccable taste
and traditional style. Regardless of the item, a wallet, handbag,
or sunglasses, if it has Ralph's name on it, chances are we love it.
Calvin Klein - Calvin Klein's well tailored
minimalist designs offer a respite from the excess and bling that
dominated society within the last few years.
Patrizia Pepe - An old favorite, from pencil
skirts to dresses, this Italian label offers basics, as well as
interesting, designer driven pieces.
BCBG Maxazria - Femininity is in full swing in
this sophisticated collection with a European flair.
Furla - The handbag has certainly been a hot
category within the last few years. There's been too much of an emphasis
on Coach and Louis Vuitton, but not enough of Furla, an Italian brand
that offers timeless style and luxury.
Garmany - This unique Red Bank, NJ-based retailer
offers some of the best names in fashion—from Armani to Gucci and St.
John. Service is of paramount importance at Garmany, which offers a
concierge service, private shopping consultations, a children's theater,
and separate coffee and refreshment bars for men and women.
Ralph Lauren - By now I guess you get the picture.
Ralph Lauren is truly an Apparel Search favorite this year. When
shopping for his classic American looks, fashionistas can also enjoy a
stylish retail atmosphere that draws us deeper into the charm and grace
of Ralph's elegant world.
Mango - Apparel Search fell in love with the
trendy and affordable retailer Mango many years ago while on a trip to
Amsterdam. With every trip to Europe, we were sure to scout out the
nearest Mango shop. Luckily New York City recently opened its first
Mango shop downtown. Considering the cost of an airline ticket and the
weak dollar, we are glad we can now shop Mango in our own backyard.
H&M - Apparel Search simply could not omit this
Swedish-based retailer, which was among the first to lead the movement
to cutting edge trends at affordable prices. The guest designer
partnership model that H&M employs creates quite a buzz in the fashion
industry and keeps consumers wondering who will be the next high profile
designer to partner with H&M to bring us chic looks/fast fashion for
Zara - This is another European-based retail chain
that offers the latest trends at affordable prices. Rather than focusing
on the basics, Zara's style savvy collection offers a twist with simple
shapes embellished with a subtle European sense of style.
