Tuesday Thrills - Madewell

After spotting a number of celebrities wearing Madewell, I knew I had to do a feature on this impressive and influential brand. You may remember the cute spectacle sweater that Emma Roberts wore in this post. Other famous lovers of the chic label are Jessica Alba, Alexa Chung, Katie Holmes and Lauren Conrad, to name a few.

Madewell finds it's niche in creating classic cut, utilitarian pieces that are not necessarily trend-base but are rather intended to surpass seasons. Buying an item of clothing from the brand means investing in an ultra-luxe & sophisticated piece of fashion that will never date. The price range is slightly steep, this is due to Madewell's use of luxurious fabrics like soft silks & linens. Here's a peek into their current Summer 2012 range.

1. Silk Laneshift Shirt in wild poppy. $110 
2. Soft Silk Boyshirt in vivid fucshia. $110
3. Silk Bookends Blouse with Peter Pan collar in marseille aqua. $110
4. Sam & Lavi Remi colorblock button-front shirt in colours ecru and tomato. $115
5. The quirky Spectacle Print Sweater in grey with multi-hued specs. $75
6. Something Else Fab Shorts with wide pleats in bright green. $99.99

7. Academy Blazer in ink, which has a tailored menswear fit and gold buttons. $168
8. Perfect Chambray Ex-Boyfriend denim shirt in ferrous wash. $68 
Worn with a Sam & Lavi Addison Lace shorts in white. $115
9. Le Mont St. Michel Striped top in light blue with cropped silhouette. $215
10. Treeshower Shirt in a wispy printed fabric. Colour: bleached linen. $118
11. Silk High Tea Top made from a fine silk crepe in a shade of stormy sky. $89.99
12. Sam & Lavi Raven shirt in a cotton crochet print. $158

13. Jacquard Flutter dress in 'black sea', made from silk linen with ruffled sleeves. $145
14. Won-hundred Gitte-Print tee-shirt dress in graphic print with high-low hemline. $173
15. Something Else cross-back dress in cherry red with neckline cut-outs. $189
16. Glassland skirt with asymmetrical hem in wild poppy orange. $125
17. Silk Musicbox dress with ruched waist and button-up top. $168

The Madewell collection is widely ranged with classic pieces to suit your everyday wardrobe. You can shop these looks and more on their website. Currently, Madewell only ship within the US, to Canada and Japan. But a select few of this range can also be bought via ShopBop.

Happy Shopping!

I hadn't heard of this brand until the other day and instantly fell in love with their classic and very chic items! Though upset when I found out they didn't ship to the UK :( the good thing is I didnt know Shopbop sold some of their clothes,so thank you sweetie for the heads up on that :) I love the pieces you've picked to show us just how beautiful their pieces are! :)

Take care,Daniella xox

Paolita@BerryHaute said...

I like the preppy -ness without being too expected. Isn't MADEWELL somehow tied to JCREW?
