UK-based online retailer offering discounts and clearance prices on designer brands

 

Bolia
Ikea may be an impressive name that we love, but for something different, try Bolia. The difference is that Bolia is pricey, even by local standards. Varying reports about customer service but we liked what we saw inside the Bolia stores

C’arla du Nord
Delightful fashions from this Danish designer in a distinctive and browseable site. In Danish, German and English

 

Carlo Mode/Cento 56
We've surfed a lot in preparing this list, and the Carlo Mode site is one of the best we've come across. The word 'slick' was coined for it. The backgrounds are tasteful and relatively quick-loading. Carlo Mode is the men's boutique; Cento 56 the women's. Both are accessed from a tasteful home page divided into quarters

Pop in to find out why the Hollywood set, not to mention Harper's Bazaar, Vogue and New York, are Chelsea Girl fans. Outstanding illustrations
