Its the festive season, time to put on that cocktail dress that will take you from boardroom to ballroom or Christmas cocktails with ease. We have just discovered a rockin’ online boutique- Maison de J that stocks an exciting array of statement pieces from some of the hottest UK designers today – Matthew Williamson, Tibi, Issa London (a favourite of Kate Middleton Duchess of Cambridge), Brit-cool Temperley and sister brand Alice by Alice Temperley. For accessories brands, they carry Rupert Sanderson and London based Mawi, Maison de J is the place to pick up that dress.
Not limited to stocking just well known designers, Maison de J also prides itself on discovering new emerging talents. Their buying team has an eye for spotting new designers who are making stylish clothes that are interesting yet accessible. Essentially she’s great at spotting pieces for the woman who wants to look stylish and professional at work and still want to expresses a sense of her own individual style.
Promising Designers spotted at Maison de J and pieces to covet at Maison de J
Mawi London, whom we just covered on Butterboom for her statement bejeweled clutches, extravagant crystal necklaces and jewellery that will put a distinctive stylish spin on any outfit.
We are loving Matthew Williamson‘s crystal embellished knit tops and dresses. The tops are easy to dress up with a stunning silk voluminous skirt and the dresses are ready to walk out the door, no further embellishment required.
We love British designer, Emma Cook for her eclectic and fantasy art signature prints of animals printed on loose fitting styles and soft silk material. Her clothes have a sense of play and offbeat twist to them. The loose fitting shark dress is stunning and easy to wear over a jacket while in the office.
J.Diu, a young London label founded by owner of this cool store designs chic classic pieces that have an effortless ease to them. We are especially smitten with their round neck fitted black and white tweed jacket. The tight fit, jagered patterns and loose black ribbons stitching on the outlines of the jackets and sleeves gives it just the right dose of attitude to make this tweed jacket a buy for us. A great purchase you can wear to work and still rock it at the bar afterwards.
Mother of Pearl for their sports chic meets art abstract prints. Their silk boxy printed top with a painted rose is a stand-out piece that’s easy to pair with any basic black, white or beige skirt or pants. For a weekend look, wear it with any pair of jeans or shorts.
