Harvey Nichols history goes back to 1813 when Mr Benjamin Harvey opened a lined shop on the corner of Knightsbridge and Sloane street in London. Later on the business started selling oriental carpets, silks and luxury goods alongside the linens. In 1919 Harvey Nichols was bought by Debenhams, and, arriving to our days, the store embarked on a major refurbishment in food market, restaurant, bar and caffé. Other stores are available in Manchester, Leeds, Dublin, Edinburgh and Birmingham. At present, with the online store, you have a very good chance to shop among big brands such as Prada, Fendi, YSL, and indulge yourself in a fantastic beauty section where it’s so easy to get in and so hard to get out without a full basket…Same story with the handbags section, plenty choice for an international virtual meeting point of some of the most required brands.

Fall winter 2008/09: Emilio Pucci Cosmo fantasy

In emilio pucci on September 11, 2008 at 9:57 am

Designers are so much caring of their style and distinctive lines related to their customers who always look for a referential point.

As a matter of fact, Emilio Pucci is one of the most recognizable designers for his choices and patterns. His style is a mixture of geometrical and surreal suggestions with an excellent use of colours.

Emilio Pucci’s next fall winter collection is going to witness the presence of his new fantasy, called Cosmo Fantasy, a sparkling option to the monotonous winter colours. The Cosmo fantasies mix together warm colours such as brown, orange and beige, and more lively tonalities like wisteria, grey and strong pink.

Apart from dresses, you will find the Emilio Pucci Cosmo fantasies on bombers, coats and shoulder items in general, as shown from the shots below.

Prada is one of the most respectable names in the world of fashion, worldwide well known for its elegance and selection, considered one of the most influential name in the world of industry.
Prada is synonymous with opulence and quality, considered as a proper status symbol. With its many boutiques found globally, with its European epicentre in Milan, Prada ensure only authenticity from its boutiques and online store, fighting against counterfeiting like many other brands. Miuccia Prada is the leading star of the brand which also inspired cinema in 2003 with the movie “The Devil wears Prada”. I found the online shop elegant and faithful to the brand history.


STOCK: handbags, travel, leather goods, gift, women’s shoes, men’s shoes, eyewear. Furthermore, many cultural initiatives.

WEBSITE FEATURE: The online store is very essential, no fuss around basically. The homepages are absolutely gorgeous; on your left hand side clearly displayed your options, the website layout is simply configured to ensure the best support. Goods are displayed on a virtual “tapis rouland”, that you scroll with your mouse. Pictures are very big and provide a clear idea of what the product looks like. The site doesn’t show any ornaments or so, which to me is fine! Unfortunately no clothes available.

RELIABILITY: It is the official Prada online store. The best quality is guaranteed. The online stores reserves the right to reject orders from any customers with whom there is an ongoing legal dispute regarding a previous order.

STRENGHT: The online store has a handy layout, easy, reliable and quick to consult. Description of goods is clear and pictures are very wide.

WEAKNESS: No clothes available.
