A/W Fashion Show '15

We work hard to carefully source and select new labels to add to our already extensive brand mix. Always on the lookout for outstanding design of the highest quality, collections or items that are slightly offbeat yet classic enough to wear season after season. We also love labels that stand the test of time - that gain a loyal following from our customers over the years due to the quality and that offer something unique...

On Tuesday 3rd November we will hold our AW15 Fashion Show showcasing well known Frontiers favs along with newcomers such as Mads Norgaard, Wood Wood, Essential and De'Hart to name only a few.

This will be an intimate and exclusive show with only 24 tickets for each sitting so choose your preferred time and book soon as will be a guaranteed sell-out!

1pm / 5.30pm / 8pm - Tickets £5

New Label - Bonne Maison

After 20 years in the business, Béatrice de Crécy and Jean-Gabriel decided to create a new brand producing the finest quality socks in an array of gorgeous designs. Once they invested in special knitting machines, Bonne Maison were able to manufacture in France from luxurious Egyptian cotton. They are double thread knitted for optimal strength, with a fine gauge allowing high accuracy and refinement to their 12 vibrant patterns.

Available in two sizes over the range, they come beautifully packaged, making it not only an essential purchase for you, but also a great gift.

Brand Focus: Mads Nørgaard

7th September 2015

Introducing another exciting new label for us for AW15.

Danish designer Mads Nørgaard philosophy behind his clothing line is to "make women sexier and men rougher - with a modernist gleam in the eye". You will find basic t-shirts, edgy denim, cool dresses and great quality knitwear with an edgy yet feminine touch.

The prices are reasonable and the clothes wearable so we see this brand fast becoming a new Frontiers fav!

Baum - the story ...so far.

15th May 2015

Established in Copenhagen in 1999 by Rikke and Helle who formed their partnership at the Royal Danish Academy of Design.

Since the very beginning the two designers have been complementing and challenging each other in creating very unique but wearable collections - and winning heaps of awards along the way.

For years now Baum und Pferdgarten has been one of our favourite labels since it first landed in our shop and happily we are on to our tenth season.

So for all you dedicated followers we are now buying four collections a year! The next drop for "high summer" will be with us any day now.

We can't wait!

How to do that Seventies thing...... with scarves

13th March 2015

Think St Tropez, Brigitte Bardot, The Italian Job. Sophia Loren, Kaftans, Chiffon scarves, floppy hats, Twiggy, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and the list goes on and on. So with this in mind we decided to add Mantero scarves to our mix for SS15.

The Mantero scarves, famous in Milan, Paris and New York, are beautifully hand made in Como Italy. Our pick - bold prints and bright florals. Worn as head scarves, headbands, around floppy hats or simply with a seventies style blazer.

Some of it we know was quite outrageous but still the 70's gave us some memorable moments that we wont forget in too much of a hurry.

Bye-Bye Bobbl
(for this season anyway!)

10th February 2015

There are no words to describe the reaction we had to these interchangeable pompom hats except to say... BOBBL MANIA!!!!

We truly could not keep these hats on the shelves from mid-November and had to to constantly increase our orders (doubling in some occasions!) to keep up with the demand! Many customers told us they had even been stopped in the street to find out where the hats are from!

We look forward to what designer Katrina McCrossan has in store for AW15!

Colour Crush

1st February 2015

There's nothing more comforting than wearing cashmere, especially in the colder months, so what could be more perfect than this.

First brand new label in for 2015 is London based label Cocoa Cashmere, who have captured the luxury of the best quality cashmere, complemented with beauty of contemporary design and print.

Quickly selling out of 3 styles already, we are very happy to have snapped up this label for 2015 and have a feeling it will be with us for many a season to come. Oh, and did we mention every style retails for under £200!

AW14 Labels that give us...
'that feeling'

1st November 2014

Buying for the shop is fun but it can also be extremely nerve racking, like rolling dice. We ask ourselves many questions such as: how do we really know if our customers will like this? How many in each size, in what colour, 'are we clairvoyants - think you get the picture.

There are trails, tribulations and a few disagreements along the way, but sometimes ...we get 'that feeling'! It's mostly a feeling of excitement mixed with slight nerves (it's natural we are about to sign our live away here!). It's a special feeling where we don't second guess ourselves in the slightest and just go for it. We love the concept, the colours, the prints -in fact everything. Selecting is hard as you mostly want it all! This is the way we hope you feel for some of our things when you look round our glass fronted shop in Edinburgh's West End.

New for A/W14 - &DAUGHTER

This label has had some incredible press this season featuring in Vouge, Grazia, Red and Stella to name only a few. This was one of the 'we must have' labels we saw at the beginning of this year whilst buying for AW14. Introducing a modern luxury knitwear brand made in the Scottish borders and West coast of Ireland.
