LONDON — Bicester Village, one of the nine Chic Outlet Shopping Villages in Europe by Value Retail, welcomed Rita Ora and a host of British design talent to the launch of the 2013 British Designers’ Collective, a boutique set up in collaboration with the outlet center and the British Fashion Council (BFC).
This year’s boutique follows the theme of “Future Vintage” and was curated by brand adviser and retail consultant Yasmin Sewell, who has chosen a selection of pieces that she believes will be collectible. “In 20 year’s time where will Jonathan [Saunders] be? And where will Mary Katrantzou be? Owning pieces from their early collections will be great things to have,” she told WWD.
