Deep Discounts on Britain’s Coolest Designers
Hopping the pond for a bargain might not seem particularly savvy, or even sane, particularly if London is your destination. But Bicester Village just outside of the city is offering some compelling incentives. This outlet mall (the title may conjure images of fanny packs and dollar stores, but really, with stores like YSL, Mulberry, and Fendi, it’s more of a fantastic shopping center that happens to have a great year-round sale) just opened the third installment of its wildly popular British Design Collective pop up (through May 9th).
Under the oversight of the Collective’s ambassador, Alexa Chung (above), the store is offering deep discounts on big-name British designers like Jonathan Saunders and Preen as well as wares from the country’s biggest emerging talents–pieces you’d be hard-pressed to find stateside.
Here’s a preview of what you can score:

And if you happen to be in Milan after March 27th, head to sister outlet Fidenza Village (another of the nine Chic Outlet Shopping villages), where Matthew Williamson will be launching an exclusive pop.
