Big Brown

Ah, London. Ramsay. Conran. Hindmarch.

Ah, London. Jet lag. Inflation. Thirty-two inches of rain per year.

How to get the best of the city yet elude the dreary weather and seven-hour flight? Browns, London’s premier Molton Street shopping destination, is finally online. Meaning you don’t have to lift a finger (okay, maybe a finger) to score threads by hard-to-get British (Megan Park, Eley Kishimoto, Shami Senti) and Australian (Easton Pearson, Sass & Bide, Zimmerman) designers. But hell, if you really would rather boast that you bought your Marc Jacobs skirt or Juicy hoodie abroad, go right ahead. You can still pull off that jet-set aura without ever having to catch a whiff of bad airline coffee or listen to the drone of a chatty seatmate.

Of course, you won’t be able to say you saw the changing of the guard.

But somehow we suspect that your brand-new Paul Smith cardigan will make up for the loss.
