My Future Collectables and a Ciao for Now Too

Over at Browns Fashion they are celebrating their 40th Birthday by bringing out a 'Future Collectables' Range, which is a collection where designers from Balenciaga to Burberry have produced limited edition pieces based on one of their iconic designs.

I have always liked designer clothes but unfortunately, unless they are vintage from charity shops or boot sales, they are well out of my price range.

So when I want modern pieces my compromise is Designer Collaborations and when iconic pieces are produced, I try to collect them as my 'Future Collectables'

Here is a selection of what I've picked up so far:


Celia Birtwell for Topshop dress


Zandra Rhodes for Topshop kaftan


Kate Moss for Topshop Liberty jacket


Christopher Kane for Topshop dress
My latest purchase, which happened to be FREE-but that's a story for another time, LOL!!

What pieces do your own or plan to buy with an eye for keeping as a 'Future Collectable'?

I would also like to say a big Thanks to all my regular readers, whether you comment or not-unfortunately I may not be around for a little while so am saying Ciao for now, but I will try and pop by your blogs when I do have the chance-take care and see you all soon!!

This is certainly a great ensemble of future collectables. I'm sad that you are taking a blogging break; your blog is always so fresh and enjoyable. Hope you come back soon. x

Those Browns future collectables are desirable, but your clever collection of Designer Collaborations is very nice too. My OH caught me looking atr the Browns page and remarked, "You've got a dress!" LOL - as if I could afford more than the bus fare to the shop.

And sorry to hear you're taking a break as I've only recently found your blog which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. BTW - before you go take a look at my Giveaway - you may like to enter! For now, best wishes and hope to see you back on your blog again before too long.

That Celia Birtwell for Topshop dress is one of the best you've worn, in my opinion. Great fit; unique style.

Oh, what shall I do w/o you? You were the first (I believe) to comment on my blog. I have appreciated and admired you and will continue to do so....

Praying for your welfare and happiness till you return..

WendyB said...

Come back soon :-(

You better email me... I might be coming to London again this summer!

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi everyone-thanks for all your kind words and concerns-suffice to say I most probably won't be posting my self much for a while, but I'll try to check in with you all when I can-both boys have exams this month, so things are quite hectic!

claudia said...

If I had to buy something as future collectables that would be definitely bags or pieces of costume jewelry. During the years I often lost or gained weight ending up being unable to wear some expensive (for me) clothes I bought. Bags and costume jewelry are always wereable, no matter which size I am :-)

ellie said...

We'll miss you. Love this outfit.

marian said...

lovely dress honey, what a lovely line of designer and high street collabos.

Your posts will be missed Sharon Rose but do let me know when you are back so I make sure to stop.
Big hug and kisses. Do take care of yourself.
