Story Time

With Joe Browns every piece tells a story – so it would be a crime not to tell it!

 

We chatted to our designer George to find out her inspiration behind some of this seasons looks!

 

Joyful Jersey Dress

“This print was influenced by a tattoo I had seen.”

 

????? Finished Joyful Jersey Dress

 

 

Carnival Dress

“This print was adapted from the fractal floral print created for the Sunshine Dress to create a unique asymmetric design.”

 

????? Finished Carnival Dress

 

 Traveller’s Jacket

“This jacket was created after seeing a vintage embroidered top in a second hand shop in Brighton. The design was simplified as the intended small mirrors were a production and QC issue.”

 

????? Finished Traveller's Jacket

 

 

 

Free Spirit T-Shirt

“This graphic was inspired by the blown ink artworks everyone used to do as children. Giving the graphic a sense of both chaos and fun.”

 

?????  Finished Free Spirit T-shifrt

 

 

Repeat Adventure T-Shirt
“This was inspired by Andy Warhol style pop art. Simple, clean and vibrant.”

Do One Jack – It’s Joe’s turn to hit the road

Travelling’s in our bones at Joe Browns which is why we’re uber excited to show you our new spring collection, inspired by our love of just getting out there!You can’t beat that feeling when you get in a car, plane or bus knowing you’re heading for a completely unplanned, unscripted adventure -especially when it’s with the people you know can have you in uncontrollable hysterics at least once a day.

 

So our plan for this season was simple – we didn’t have one!

 

We wanted our new spring outfits to reflect our love of being curious, free (and just a little bit mischievous!), combined with our passion for vibrant colours, unique designs and ultimate appetite for just having fun.

 

Obviously we’d love to tell you about every single piece in the new collection but 1.) There are rather a lot and 2.) You can see them all here anyway!

 

So here’s a couple of our favourites we reckon you’re going to love…

A Sophisticated Tipple

We love looking to the Far East for inspiration for both oriental designs and the odd beverage!

 

The Oriental Cocktail is a classic.

 

Unfortunately none of its ingredients actually hail from that side of the globe, but it was probably quite exotic at the time and reminded someone of their travels there.

 

It’s really quick to do, refreshingly different and surprisingly tasty…

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

1 1/2 ounces Rye Whisky
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
3/4 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce lime juice
Cherry garnish
From getting in the front door to having it in your hand: 3 minutes
Enough for: Just you – double up for a mate

 

PREPARATION

 

Add all ingredients in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker.
Add ice and shake vigorously.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a cherry.
For one last January bargain the Oriental Wrap Jersey Dress is currently in the sale at just £29.95.

 

Have you got any oriental inspired favourites?

Shangri-La!

For all you lovers of all things bright and colourful, we have just the thing for you! Say hello to Shangri-la – complete with the flavours of a bold bright mystical land, brimming with colour and radiating the wonderful exotic orient. Free spirited, intriguing, stunning! This collection is jam- packed with South East Asian opulence and we sent Caroline from our buying team to visit this magical place, gathering inspiration (here’s some snaps) taking in all the sights, sounds and smells to then weave through our new collection. The result? An eclectic zing of fresh lime and vibrant pink, contrasting with earthy, deeper tones of midnight teal, faded berry and buddha blue – wow!

The unconformity of this colour palette is super fun, exploding with the vibrancy and diversity of South Asian celebration and culture. This collection incorporates a range of classic East Asian motifs, unique hand drawn designs, clashing mosaic scarf prints, and of course there’s plenty of Joe Browns twists including fun detailing and fabulous quality additions.

 

This is a truly quirky collection full of adventure and fun, for those who dare to be different! It’s a great way to express your love for travel, your individuality and your lust for life through your clothing! The vibrant fabrics and unique patterns are wonderfully courageous, and the silhouettes, shapes and mix and match designs mean there’s something to suit every body shape! From authentic textured knits to bright separates, playful prints and really vivid timeless pieces, we have a little bit of something special to suit everyone’s needs and budgets!

Our Personal Favourites…

“My Shangri-la favourite has to be the utterly unique Shangri la tunic, as worn this week by the lovely Rebecca Wheatley on The Wright Stuff. (See pic) Its vivid colour palette blends perfectly with the more earthy tones and bright splashes of crimson and the unique design was inspired by the striking Himalayan landscape, creating a fabulously eclectic jersey tunic. For an affordable £29.95 this is a fabulous piece that you won’t find on the high street. Dress it up with some of our beautiful basic leggings and a statement necklace for a nice meal or drinks. Alternatively dress it down with a classic pair of our Boot Cut Beauty Denim Jeans at and Suede Summertime boots. No matter how you style your utterly unique Shangri-la tunic you’re bound to be complimented on its unique array of contrasting fabrics and fabulous Joe Browns detailing in the form of a cute love heart button and colourful embroidery.” Holly, Marketing Department

“After being lucky enough to travel around South East Asia, and creating this season’s Shangri-la theme, I would have to pick the Unique Utopian Dress in Multi £39.95 as my favourite piece from this collection. The dazzling print itself was inspired by the tropical fauna which I saw on my travels. This dress certainly has the feel good factor, with the use of bright tropical colours and print, it is the epitome of Shangri-la, and can be easily dressed up with our Fun and Fabulous Heels £34.95 on a night out. Alternatively, dress it down through the day with a pair of our Beautiful Corsage Wedge Boots £44.95 and our Super Springy Scarf at £14.95 for a look that will carry you right through autumn/winter. It’s definitely worth spending that little bit more to create such a diverse, timeless look” Caroline, Buying Department

A Right Royal Invitation!

Joe Brown’s regally invites to you to indulge in our fabulous new Sovereignty Collection,full of wonderfully British brocade, gorgeous jacquards and stunning flocked fabrics!

 

The height of all things luxurious, this BRAND NEW range is bound to make you feel like royalty.  So for all you Kate Middleton lovers out there (like me!) our opulent English heritage styles, fabrics and detailing are as close as it gets without breaking the bank!

 

Caroline from our buying department explains:

 

The colour palette is inspired by our well-loved royals and their decadent clothing; the wonderfully regal colours hark to the crown jewels, beautiful royal red velvet trains, and stunning regal room settings. Rich ruby reds make a huge impact throughout the collection, and I love the gold highlighting which gives our clothing a true regal feel.

 

But we don’t stop there; we have also steered away a little from our British roots and added a touch of French Renaissance – as if we couldn’t get any more chic!  Weaving through soft rose pinks, and vintage pastels, (which as a Joe Browns fan you will know have been a huge influence across the seasons), and I don’t believe this is a trend that’s going to fade!.”

 

This collection screams sophistication. Just when you thought that last season’s Joe Browns unique Herringbone Jacket couldn’t get any more remarkable, say hello to our Terrific Tailored Blazer (£59.95) with new fabulous additions including a beautiful silk floral lining and quirky heritage buttons. This, teamed with our Heritage Waistcoat (£34.95) will make you feel like a true English eccentric!

With marvellous Joe Browns detailing, there’s nothing not to love! But if you’re not a fan of tailoring, there’s always our delightful Enthralling Entrance Top (£29.95) – this dress will certainly make an impact! With an intricate mix of emerald green and ivory embellishments this design is not only breathtakingly beautiful it’s also figure flattering and unique, giving you a classic English look.

I don’t know about you, but every year I take on the enormous task of trying to find the perfect winter coat. Well look no further – Joe Browns have a treat in store for you! We have a gorgeous range of figure flattering, winter coats, that are not only fabulous – but unique and cosy too!

 

Watch our Sovereignty video:

 

Caroline from our buying department expresses her love:

“I can’t wait for you to see the stunning range of coats we have for you this season.  After the success of last year’s collection, I didn’t think our designs could get any better! But I’m really proud of this year’s regal designs oozing luxury and opulence! My favourite has to be the Perfect Patch Coat (£74.95), inspired by the stunning rugs we found in the Marrakesh souks. With its timeless design and superb quality fabric, I would get your hands on it now, as I have a feeling this is going to fly off the shelves!”

A Hard Day In The Office!

In search for our next male model….such a hard day in the office!

 

male_model_comp

 

 

Here at Joe Browns, we’ve never been big on models – really driven by our customers who know exactly what they like and what suits them – without the need for ‘’body perfect’ people dictating to them how to dress! (customers’ words, not ours!)

 

But there are times we need to show our clothes on real people, for example on the website to show how things fit – sleeve lengths, trouser fit, skirt lengths etc.

 

So, today, in search of our next male model, we had a line up of three male ‘finalists’ to see – who all incidentally got stuck on the M6 on the way across so we started well behind schedule.

 

The camera was good and ready to roll, manned by Rich our Creative Head and the ladies of the office were all making excuses to pass by the photography room on their way to the vending machine….reception to pick up a parcel…the carpark having forgotten something from the car….even the kitchen (which incidentally is at the opposite end of the building! ).

 

Model 1 arrives looking extremely dapper – even more so once sporting the Joe Browns famous Don Jacket and Waistcoat. A few flashes and it’s onto t-shirt and shorts. Nice legs, good arms and nice tanned skin (hmmm not a hard day at all really is it!) Good sense of humour too – always important when looking to avoid cheesy old fashioned catalogue shots!

 

Cue Model 2 –Shoots really well in the suit and casual wear then onto the swim trunks. (Absolutely necessary of course with brand new range of swimwear needing to be photographed for next summer.)

 

Then finally onto model 3 – looks great in the tee and shorts combo and has an amazing tanned six pack to boot. Jeans fit perfectly and he fills our tee’s brilliantly…
Oh decisions, decisions…..this is going to be a tough one – we’re going to be ages poring over these images. Watch this space to see who makes it to the final pick!

 

Why not tell us what your checklist would be if you had to choose!
