As you know from my previous posts it has been a busy summer for Chic to Chic with trunk shows around the country. It has been great for us to share the brand and our collection, as well as meet new friends along the way in several cities.
As I stopped to reflect on how truly exciting this summer has been, I realized how incredibly grateful I am for our retail partners who carry pieces from our private collection in their boutiques year-round. Chic to Chic Accessories are available not only through our private showroom in Wellesley, but also in 5 retail locations. These partners are a result of some incredible relationships we’ve built over the course of Chic to Chic’s growth and I can’t put into words how thankful I am to work with these amazing boutiques and be a part of their overall collection. I am a firm believer in collaboration and partnering with other brands, because, together we can do amazing things.
For this month’s post I wanted to share some insight into each of them with you.
Isoude is a luxury fashion brand based in Newport, Rhode Island, founded by designer Kate Brierley. Inspired by the complexity of the female spirit, from which the name is derived, Isoude offers the modern woman an engaging experience of luxury.
Kate’s collection is exquisite and our brands have great synergies together. We’ve been collaborating on trunk shows as well as offering Chic to Chic accessories to her clients at her boutique in Newport RI since 2013, to help them complete their luxury looks.
Luxe Boutiques is a new retail concept founded by veteran furrier and luxury goods curator Cecil Elrod. The retail concept is one that leverages the small square footage of the sundry shop into a high-end luxury goods boutique. Located in the lobby of the Mandarin Oriental this boutique sells outerwear, fine ladies apparel, and fashion accessories. We were thrilled to be asked to provide Chic to Chic accessories for their clients earlier this year and continue to update our assortment there so that the collection is ever-changing for their sophisticated clientele.
A new one for us this season. The Golden Door located in Escondido, California is a place very near and dear to me, that I have enjoyed for many years. It is a resort that has designed an experience to empower guests to reposition themselves in their own lives by tending to mind, body and spirit.
After a successful trunk show earlier this past June I had the honor of being asked to share a curated selection of Chic to Chic Private Collection pieces for their on-line and on-site boutiques along with seven other carefully selected jewelry brands and designers.
Located in Falmouth, MA, Maxwell & Co. is a popular high-end curated men’s & women’s fashion boutique on Cape Cod. In addition to their private label collection, they carry brands such as Dries Van Noten, Maliparmi and Hugo Boss.
We collaborate for trunk shows, and I am grateful to have a private collection assortment that we curate together for each season. This will be our third year of working together.
Willowbrook Home — Formerly Mary Stuart Collections, located in the heart of Lenox, MA. The boutique offers cashmere, fragrances, jewelry, housewares, baby clothing and other gifts by national and local designers. We are excited to be a part of their beautifully curated collections.
How lucky we are to be partnering with such an incredible group of boutiques! They are truly championing our collection and I am thankful everyday for the opportunity to work with each them. Thank you for being a part of my incredible journey.
