Tuesday Thrills - Madewell

After spotting a number of celebrities wearing Madewell, I knew I had to do a feature on this impressive and influential brand. You may remember the cute spectacle sweater that Emma Roberts wore in this post. Other famous lovers of the chic label are Jessica Alba, Alexa Chung, Katie Holmes and Lauren Conrad, to name a few.

Madewell finds it's niche in creating classic cut, utilitarian pieces that are not necessarily trend-base but are rather intended to surpass seasons. Buying an item of clothing from the brand means investing in an ultra-luxe & sophisticated piece of fashion that will never date. The price range is slightly steep, this is due to Madewell's use of luxurious fabrics like soft silks & linens. Here's a peek into their current Summer 2012 range.
