(212)


What makes designer clothing so appealing? Is it due to the respected name? The sophisticated design? The quality? For me, the answer mostly lies with design and quality. When I pick a designer piece, I choose wisely because I don't have money sprouting from my ass. I make sure that the price matches its worth. So when I discovered (212), I immediately loved this brand for what it stood for. They strive on maintaining quality over the production of their garments and offers women a contemporary clothing line that's more accessible at an "affordable luxury" price. I think the youthful, sophisticated, yet sexy silhouettes represents everything they've claimed to be. Below are photos from (212)'s Fall 2010 collection featuring the Lee Tank, Carrie Wool Bomber, Kelly Dress, and Nora Open Back Dress. Click here to view more from current and past collections.

I think it's mostly the quality. I'm not a big fan of labels to start with, but yeah, a good designer piece is so worth it because it lasts a lifetime! These are gorgeoussss pics!

I agree, If I had the money to buy designer I would definitely, definitely make sure that I was getting my moneys worth in terms of quality and design. I'm always so appalled when I go to a shop and actually handle a certain designer's garment just to be perplexed by how cheap the quality is! DOES.NOT.COMPUTE!

I think if I can afford to buy designer one day, I would go with Calvin Klein or the Row from the Olsens. The design and the quality should justify the price in my opinion. I love the last dress! xoxoxoo

each of these pieces are lovely and I agree with you completely. The price needs to match its worth, spending bucks on designer labels just for the hell of it is ridiculously.
Oh and could you point me in the direction of the person who does have money sprouting from their ass, I need to get a picture :)

Karen said...

Very classic pieces you chose. Love them!
