try calling:

I think Iris in NYC has footwear.
Iris 827 Washington St., 212-645-0950

ikram chicago
linda dresner 212 308 3177
susan in burlingam 650 347 0452
galleria neoponte 201 541 7744

I know they all carry the "odd" ones so maybe...

Iris is hands down best bet for shoes, and they are having a sale. They have a plain version of that boot for 40 or 50% off.

Amalga in Soho carried her Spring clothing line....not sure about Fall.
They are on Wooster btwn. Prince and Spring.

Softgrey, Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and Liberty in London both have her stuff......in Paris I am sure L'eclaireur (on Rue des Rosiers) and (i think) the Bon Marche.

Le bon marché and Montaigne market both carry Branquinho, sales are just starting in Paris and European prices are usually better on brands like Branquinho so I'd try calling them.

Oh dear, soft, that is very disappointing, isn't it? I really thought I would be able to get my hands on those boots somehow. I really like a lot of VB's shoes, but they are terribly expensive at full price. The covered boots from the runway were also spectacular....if you are an Amazon, that is....


helena--Iris is a new shoe store in the meat-packing district. Here is a little explanatory excerpt from what I posted in the NYC shopping thread:
"Iris is a little-known Italian company that manufactures shoes for Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, Chloé, Viktor & Rolf, Veronique Branquinho, and Paul Smith. But unlike other multibrand stores, this boutique doesn't carry just selected looks from those powerhouse names; it will have every single style (stiletto, boot, slingback, peep toe, platform) in the entire line of each label."

Oh wow, Iris sounds wonderful...'

Just to add, you can also purchase Branquinho from Harvey Nicolas in Hong Kong.

sorry to hear about the boots soft! that is frustrating ...

I've never had a chance to see VB clothes in person. Does anyone know of any stockists in the LA area? Although, I think I read somewhere from Laika that her clothes don't work as well for shorter women

hi tourist...
Quote:

that is often true...

veronique branquinho cuts in a similar fashion to vanessa bruno...
long and narrow...

so it's hard if you have some curves or are petite....

however...
laika and i BOTH bought the same pr of cullotes and leggings this season..
and i think laika also got a dress...
:p

so it really does depend on the style of the particular pieces...
i used to be able to wear a lot more of it..
it's when the collection is too tailored that i run into issues...

...

not sure who would carry it in CALI......
i would think barney's would be the most likely suspect though...

tourist, I find that she cuts quite generously, which can sometimes be a problem if you are smaller than a US 4. Length is almost always an issue, as most of her skirts and even tops seem to be cut for a woman with model proportions--probably VB herself....

That said, I have gotten around all of this with very simple tailoring, which I find worth it, especially since the quality and workmanship of her stuff surpasses pretty much everything else in my closet.

I am pretty sure Barney's BH doesn't stock it, but maybe try Satine?
