Modern Wardrobe Heroes

If you managed a clear-out at the start of the year, you may have the foundations of a capsule wardrobe just waiting to be discovered. Everyday essentials can be anything but ordinary if you invest in quality designers that forgo seasonal trends in favour of the classics. As an expert in curation, founder Clare Richardson has a few favourite luxury brands that guarantee her versatile and complementary wardrobe staples.

The Frankie Shop

Since opening its doors in New York’s Lower East Side in 2015, The Frankie Shop has earned its Hollywood seal of approval from street-style tastemakers like Gigi Hadid and Hailey Bieber. Synonymous with oversized tailoring that’s stylishly nonchalant, the brand is a one-stop boutique for mannish blazers, classic Oxford shirts, and relaxed-fit trousers that readily transition from your work to weekend wardrobe.

Wardrobe NYC

When Josh Goot and Christine Centenera launched Wardrobe NYC in 2017, their vision was to empower the modern woman with a catch-all contemporary uniform that makes everyday dressing a breeze. The duo set out to be the world’s first true-luxury direct-to-consumer brand offering practical, minimalist separates that are intentionally designed to mix and match, making it the perfect place to start a capsule wardrobe.

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney’s eponymous label is renowned for its cruelty-free and sustainable practices, taking a powerful stand against animal-origin fabrications and wasteful production. Following her Chloé tenure, Stella McCartney won admirers from Meghan Markle to Olivia Palermo for her blend of feminine decoration with masculine lines, creating fun but elegant collections of girlish dresses, colourful knits, and sharp tailoring.


London label Tove was created by Camille Perry and Holly Wright to create beautiful, timeless staples that are designed to fit perfectly with busy lifestyles. Combining luxury and wearability, these are pieces for women who love a put-together look that’s not overly polished. As one of our consciously chosen Relove brands, you can shop Tove’s seasonless designs from the archives with up to 40% off at Reluxe.
