Rare-ly Stylish

Rare clothing

When I received this invite last week to the Rare A/W '09 press day on September 11 in London, my first reaction was a) to reprimand myself for not yet moving to London, and b) to take a closer at this affordable, Liverpool-based high street brand which I had seen at Topshop and know very little about. A quick peek at the website revealed an easy-to-navigate layout with my favorite feature, New Arrivals. There's also a function that allows users to create their own looks. Rather than do that, I've hand picked a few items that illustrate some of fall's strongest trends: military styling, strong shoulders, madcap florals, peek-a-boo details, and sequins and studs as embellishments.
