Our YVR Notable team was recently invited out to what we like to call a slice of style heaven, Privilege Clothing Boutique, for a preview of their new collection (for men and women). With the fall/winter season now in full swing it is definitely that time of year when YPs are looking for ways to update their wardrobe and find new winter pieces. Not having visited the stylish store before, we were excited to see that Privilege has all that covered and plenty more throughout their well-stocked second location in the Lower Mainland.
The evening got off to a well-wheeled start as invited VIP and media guests were picked up for the event from the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel and chauffeured to the boutique (located in Port Moody). Having arrived in style, we were greeted by friendly staff and offered a glass of bubbly and introduced to the store owner (and local YP stylist) Donni Rae, who walked us through the various lines and trends for the season. The boutique’s emphasis is firmly focused on the hottest brands from New York, Los Angeles, and well-known lines straight from the UK (such as Muubaa leather wear). We discovered plenty of inspiration courtesy of Michael Kors, Alternative Apparel, BB Dakota, Mink Pink, and outerwear items from Canada Goose.
Not just about big brands, though, Privilege stocks a plethora of pieces sourced from smaller, local designers, most notably that of boutique owner Donni, who teamed up with fellow young creative Mirriam Alden to create a selection of wrap-around bracelets – well-priced at $49, titled Alden & Rae. They are the perfect item for young professional women wanting to add a touch of personality to their look (not to mention the fact that they make a great gift), and we loved the reveal of their new fall colours.
The evening also allowed us to check out the latest line of JBrand denim, including their new leather selection – a definite must for the season (and worth the investment if you want to add a bit of edginess to your look).
