James Joyce and Anna Bu Kliewer now for sale in Browns East
Browns, the iconic fashion store long based in South Molton Street, has just opened a new store Browns East in Club Row, Shoreditch. And, in among the high fashion items, it’s also offering artwork by some of today’s most interesting and desirable artists, including James Joyce and Anna Bu Kliewer. Their pieces are for sale in company with names like Polly Morgan, Rob Wyn Yates, Jemma Appleby, Lauren Baker, Stephanie Burnley, Juno Calypso, Maja Daniels, Sue Williams, Rebecca Louise Law and Nigel O’Niel.
Browns was founded in 1970 when Joan and Sidney Burnstein bought a Georgian townhouse in South Molton Street and opened a small boutique. In short order, they acquired the adjoining townhouses and expanded their store. Over the years they brought designers like Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Armani to London for the first time, as well as discovering John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. In more recent years, Browns has been acquired by forward-looking online fashion group Farfetch.
And now they’re open in East London. Pop along to have a look.
