Online retailer ThenAndNowShop.com sells luxury apparel and accessories to fashion-driven consumers who use its “Shop Then” option to look at past seasons’ merchandise (discounted up to 75 percent), and its “Shop Now” option to concentrate on current collections.
But it’s the London-based site’s reputation for seeking out best new brands and designers that’s gained it a worldwide reputation among collectors of accessories.
Here, a rundown of the site’s bestselling handbags from women’s wear buyer Tricia Kuo (left).
