The Frankie Shop
Ask any fashion insider and they will tell you The Frankie Shop is the go-to place for unique, refined and smartly priced wardrobe staples. Its boutiques in New York and Paris have become cult destinations, selling exclusive pieces from contemporary brands, as well as a curated roster of coveted, hard-to-find labels. However, what has really caught our eye is The Frankie Shop’s eponymous collection, which offers flattering, luxe-looking basics that don’t break the bank.
Sharp blazers with a just-so oversized silhouette, knife-pleat skirts to team with knits and boots, perfectly cut trench coats and jackets – think contemporary, everyday pieces that can slip effortlessly into your forever wardrobe. Laura has been wearing the Linda utility jumpsuit, a hero shape for the brand, on repeat day and night, pairing it with either flats or heels. Perhaps what we love most is its seasonless approach to dressing. A dedicated focus on classic shapes and timeless touches means designs are reworked and re-released through the year. What’s more, each is made in small, waste-reducing batches, making for a stylishly mindful buy.
A former ABC News producer, Gaelle Drevet has been making waves on the fashion scene for some time. The French-born style maven first opened Pixie Market, a trend-filled emporium, on New York’s Stanton Street in 2006, before launching its older, chicer sister Frankie in 2014. Now with a second boutique in Paris and a capsule collection on Net-A-Porter, Drevet’s design ethos of affordable luxury that works for the everyday has seen Frankie Shop become a trusted destination for smart-priced basics with a twist.
