Browns Celebrates 40 Years with Future Collectibles Collection



    On its 40th birthday, Browns of London has tapped 40 designers including Norma Kamali, Christopher Kane, Ashish, Rick Owens, Alexander Wang, Sonia Rykiel, Christian Louboutin and Nicholas Kirkwood to re-create iconic pieces from the store since its inception in 1970. The limited-edition goods will be available to the shopping public via the "Future Collectibles" collection. 

    The men's and women's goods, which include Wang's Goddess Dress (pictured), a Burberry trench, Rick Owens biker jacket and lots more, will reach the worldwide public on the Web, in addition to the London store and a smattering of shops across Europe through May.  For those intrepid Browns fans who can make it to London, the store will also be hosting a photography exhibition of kingpin designers including Gaultier, Alaïa and Marc Jacobs (in a Halston dress, no less) in the new gallery space at London's Regent Penthouses and Lofts.

    Even if you don't buy, it's worth simply taking a flip through the special assemblage of memorable opus pieces online.
