JOYCE eShop will launch a capsule collection of exclusive and limited edition products from five of JOYCE’s best-selling brands including The Row, Anthony Vaccarello, Thom Browne, Maison Michel and Alexander McQueen. Five per cent of the sales from these exclusive products will be donated to the Changing Young Lives Foundation.
To welcome the holiday season, JOYCE asked each label to create the ultimate party wardrobe featuring their signature styles. The fashion-forward and distinctive looks vary from classic suiting to fun head pieces, making them the ultimate style statement this season.
NOT SO BASIC GEAR, THE ROWFamous for their ultra-chic and wearable wardrobe staples, The Row created a classic blazer and matching trousers featuring a leather lapel and waistband, and worn with a leather trimmed scuba top. It’s an understated look with cool details and can go easily from boardroom to Christmas drinks.
ABOUT THE ROWEstablished in 2007, The Row is a luxury apparel and accessories brand created by Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen with a simple mission to make the perfect luxurious T-shirt. Taking its name from the historic Savile Row, the brand offers contemporary bespoke tailoring and modern-day classics.
THE ULTIMATE LBD, ANTHONY VACCARELLOAnthony Vaccarello was inspired by the film “The Black Swan” and created four little black dresses that are far from boring. These works of art stand apart from this traditional LBD and feature cut outs, patchwork, tailoring and drapes. Little Black dresses have never been so sexy, fierce and modern.
ABOUT ANTHONY VACCARELLOParis-based fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello was born in Brussels in 1980 to Italian parents. He graduated in 2006 from La Cambre-Mode in Belgium and won the Grand Prize at the International Hyeres Festival in the same year. He then joined Fendi where he designed the house’s fur collection under Karl Lagerfeld, before returning to Paris to establish his own label. Vaccarello’s collections play with strong contrasts, sheer fabrics and deconstructed cuts.
AFTER HOURS, THOM BROWNEBrowne spices up men’s formal wear with his own version of a “classic with a twist” suit. A tightly cut retro-inspired velvet jacket is teamed with a waistcoat, shirt, bow tie and leather boots. Women will look equally glamorous in a tailored flared jacket with a bubble mini-skirt that is fashion-forward and chic.
ABOUT THOM BROWNEAmerican designer Thom Browne received a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Notre Dame before relocating to New York City where he scored a job working at Giorgio Armani’s showroom. He later tapped into his creative side and became a designer at Club Monaco and Ralph Lauren, before launching his own label in 2006.
