In a world of sweatshop-manufactured, cheap clothing we have become buy-it then chuck-it consumers. Often poorly made, these bargain items are a false economy and after only a handful of wears don’t hang right, look tired and start coming apart.

As shoppers we need to re-train ourselves to buy quality, a system which is known in the fashion world as Cost Per Wear - a dress costing £30 which you wear only once is far more expensive than one which costs £120 which you wear fifteen times. Better to spend a little more on quality clothing which will hang in the wardrobe season after season looking as fresh and stylish as the day we handed over the credit card.

At Kim Vine you will find rail after rail of such items. A winning mixture of timeless styles with a nod to seasonal trends, both Kim Vine’s occasion and casual collections provide you with reliably beautiful, well-made clothes which are the antidote to disposable fashion. Buy Just One Beautiful Thing – and see how good it feels.
