If you’re looking to invest in a new party frock this festive season, look no further than WtR London.
This December, get ready for the party season with WtR – the luxury lifestyle brand rooted in modernity and spontaneity, which opened in Westbourne Grove in 2014. Born in Istanbul and reared in London, the brand is not just elegant clothes but also included vibrant handmade homewares from Istanbul, such as orange silk cushions and Amber scented candles.
Over the years WtR (which stands for ‘Wear the Robe’) has gained some famous fans including Julie Walters, Rose Leslie of Downton Abbey and Nicole Scherzinger. There are plans to expand, with stores opening in both Paris and Barcelona in 2017 and another one in London. It is already available to Europe through wholesale which it began in spring 2016, its products are stocked in the UK, Italy and the Ukraine.
Each collection is inspired by, and named after a different city and the designs draw upon the architecture and culture of this city. WtR is on trend with this season showcasing elegant high-necked dresses, capes and chunky roll-neck knits. They alsohave a range of bags and jewellery to accessorise any outfit. Their necklaces, bracelets and rings are individual and ethnic, the perfect statement to add to their elegantly simple clothes.
But it’s the sparkly numbers we are concerned with this time of year.
