What's on the Rails - August 2017

Posted by Fleur

It's so lovely to have the new season AW17 collections on the rails. Great transitional pieces keeping things light in soft greys and oranges. Lots of frills on jumpers and shirts. And the colours are everything you'd expect for Autumn - rich plums, lots of mustard to go with black, navy and grey and also some lovely soft khaki tones.

Pop in and take a look if you're in Aldeburgh. We still have a few sale bargains left as well!

Decisions in Denim

Posted by Fleur

We all appreciate that finding the right pair of jeans can be a bit like online dating - you can spend months doing your research, loosing a few pounds, showing photos to friends, trying the odd one for size and wondering if the right match will ever come your way.  But then one day the perfect pair appears and you want to keep them forever because they just make you feel good.  And that's what good jeans are all about, they need to make you feel good so that you look good too. 

So if you're in the midst of a denim dating decision, here's an overview of our favourites to help you in your search...

Intown

Intown Laura jeans are the best sellers at Fleur.  A great fit for a classic jean cut, straight and slim/narrow leg, the highest waist of all our jeans, lots of different options in fabric and colour and an amazing price. Our ladies tend to re-order year on year, adding textures and colour as the year goes.  So perhaps these jeans are for you if you're not looking for 'the one' but just wanting to look good whilst keeping your options open!

Part Two

Rapidly becoming our favourite skinny is the Part Two Alice II. This mid/high waist slim fit jean gives comfort without feeling frumpy.  We came across these jeans a couple of years ago and they are now in Part Two’s never out of stock range. Many customers have been calling asking for more colours to be sent.  They look great with this seasons long knitwear and shirts and they work really well with both ankle and long boots.  So we'd choose this one if you're looking for someone solid and reliable who isn't too flash but definitely knows how to make you feel good. 

We have a real soft spot for the grey Part Two skinnys as shown below along with a Part Two shirt, Selected Femme jumper, Cara boots and a Nica bag.

Part Two skinny jeans outfit

7 For All Mankind

7 for all Mankind is our luxury denim brand and we have customers who won't wear any other label. They are a luxury brand so do come at a price but customers pay this because they hold their shape incredibly well - no saggy knees or bottoms here thank you. The denim feels silky or like satin to touch so that they give a 'slim illusion' and they are stretcy and do almost feel like wearing leggings when you're in a pair of 7 skinnys. The skinnys also fit really well right down to the ankle to tuck in perfectly to ankle boots. We currently have skinny and slim/narrow fit in stock.  So if you like someone a bit flash who's going to spoil you rotten and make you feel very special then come in and try a pair of these.

Victoria and Fairfax & Favor - buy online

Posted by Fleur

Lots of our lovely customers often ask why we don't sell online and the answer is that we currently want to invest our efforts in making the Aldeburgh shop as good as it can possibly be without the distraction of trading online.  We're well aware of the huge amount of time and resource needed to successfully run an online store so for the time being we're going to start piggy-backing on our sister shop O&C Butcher's website.

We've started with two very popular products - Fairfax and Favor's Regina Boots and the Dora Slip-on from Victoria Plimsolls. So do follow the links if you're after either of those and we hope you enjoy the online shopping experience with O&C Butcher, they've been trading online for years so you're in good hands! We'll be adding more brands throughout the year.

Stunning Silk Dress from Noa Noa

Yes we look at clothes all day long at Fleur but that doesn't stop us getting excited when new things come in. And we all got a bit giddy when we got this Noa Noa dress out of the box. The fit is beautiful and it feels so luxurious.  The same fabric/style comes in a top too - great with a pair of 7 For All Mankind skinnys.

On the Rails - November 2015

Posted by fleur

Here's a quick look at what's on the rails at Fleur this month. We've got lots of lovely wrap-up warm coats, jumpers and ponchos as well as some lovely going-out gear like this dress below from InWear...

On the rails inc InWear dress

Grey is such a favourite with our customers, it's one of those safe colours. Some of us would argue that it's the new black for the over 30's - we used to live in black until suddenly it was too black. Or was that just us?  Anyway, grey is great because you can wear it with sooo many colours and accessories and it flatters most complexions. We love.

On the rails - reds and greys

For outerwear we have a great selection of macs from Seasalt and some gorgeous padded coats from Aigle as well as this Aigle parka below which is a firm favourite. For something smarter there's the beautiful, classic tweed Catherine coat from Anna Lascata - looks great with a pair of Fairfax and Favor boots.

New Brand Alert! Fairfax & Favor are a young British brand looking to shake up the traditional luxury brand arena. Their footwear is a blend of classic British style, high quality materials, fine craftsmanship and a contemporary elegance. Our customers at Fleur have so far given them a big, classic, thumbs up. 

Fairfax & Favor - Regina boot

We're stocking the beautiful Regina Boot shown above. Available in three colours (Chocolate, Tan and Blue) the Regina is a handmade suede, full-length knee boot. The elegant design gives a really flattering silhouette and our customers have described them as 'stunning' and 'oh so comfortable!'. It's no wonder they're comfortable as they have a padded, interior leather lining and elasticated panelling for a flexible and better fit.  The tassels are attached with a press stud so can be taken on and off as you please.

The Victoria plimsolls are proving to be as popular as ever and in a great variety of colours as shown below.  Part Two and Sandwich have included some really cute and very useful linen dresses in their spring collections - they work perfectly with a pair of white plimsolls or some Cara espadrilles. Great selection of Seasalt macs too so we're ready for the April showers. Oh and if you're after a little gift for someone, what about one of the tassle bracelets or necklaces from Wish Jewellry?

Katie Page - British Handmade Scarves

Posted by Fleur

Katie Page logo

One of the best things about having an independent fashion store is that the clothes and accessories we stock always have a certain uniqueness about them - they're not mass-produced. But few are as unique as something which is handmade meaning that no two pieces are identical and only a limited number are made of each. This is very much the case with our latest scarf and sarong brand, Katie Page.  And just when we thought things couldn't get any better, not only are Katie Page scarves handmade, but they're handmade in East Anglia - we love local.

Katie is a trained fashion designer and production specialist but set up her own studio on Ipswich Waterfront in 2013.  Since then she's moved the studio to Essex where she makes all her scarves and sarongs herself.

The current collection of snoods have proved really popular for the spring - chilly mornings and sunny afternoons. We have a variety in store from £32.50 including the cream lace and the animal print shown on the left below.  If you want to add a splash of colour how about the gorgeous 100% silk, square, scarf shown below right in Sea Blue at £49.95. Lots of lovely other styles are in store too.

Katie Page snoods

Katie also has a stunning collection of sarongs. The two shown below are really brightening up the shop at the moment and making us all want to go on holiday - they are 100% cotton and priced from £37.  Now all we have to do is work on that bikini body... x

A new outfit for spring

Posted by Fleur

For our first outfit idea this spring we couldn't resist using the new Hedinna Dress from InWear.  Beautifully teamed up with the Synergy shoes from Cara and the Nikki bag from Nica.  We think it would work perfectly for a spring wedding or a fancy lunch date with friends.

The dress is a variation on the ever-popular Patrice Dress from InWear which is also back for the spring and available in navy and carmine red as seen below in our Valentine window.

Introducing Anna Lascata Tweed Coats and Jackets

Posted by Fleur

Anna Lascata is a new brand for Fleur this Autumn and based on the reception it's received from our customers it will be one that's here to stay.

The tweed coats and jackets are a beautiful blend of timeless classic meets fashionable chic. Everyone who has tried one on has been so impressed with the fit and the fact that you don't feel restricted or weighed down by heavy fabric. They do come up slightly on the small size so don't be alarmed if you have to go up a size.

Enough chatter, here are the four styles that we have in store:

The Alexandra - high collar, navy, tweed, 3/4 length coat - £399

Anna Lascata Alexandra

The Catherine - light brown tweed, 3/4 length coat - £379

The Perfect Poncho

Introducing Seasalt's fine knit 'Perfect Poncho'. It's made from a soft cotton wool knit so it's great for layering and really versatile.  We asked our Store Manager Kassie to demonstrate the three different style options suggested by Seasalt - poncho, cape and wrap. And in doing so she's also showing off the three colour options: Coal, Petit Steel and Berberis.

The weather might be treating us to some warmth and sunshine in Aldeburgh but in store we're definitely all about Autumn right now. Luckily there's plenty of layering to be done this season so we can accommodate the Indian Summer!

There are some lovely dresses on the rails which can be easily dressed up or down for example this Sandwich satin shift dress at £119 (shown on the model wearing a cardigan from Part Two):

An Aldeburgh Musicircus – Sunday 22 June

Posted by Fleur

Hard to believe it was a year ago that crowds were flocking to Aldeburgh for ‘Grimes on the Beach’ – and coming in searching for gloves and scarves for the evening performances – we’ve definitely been blessed with a warmer spring this year!

The 67th Aldeburgh Festival started on Friday.  Flags are flying in the High Street and the excitement is building. One event we’re really looking forward to is An Aldeburgh Musicircus which takes place on the streets of Aldeburgh on Sunday 22 June at 11am.  It’s a free event and we think will definitely be one of the highlights of this years Festival.  Here’s an extract from the festival brochure to tempt you down to it:

“… An Aldeburgh Musicircus, led by Festival Artistic Director Pierre-Laurent Aimard, celebrates both the town itself and the extended family of musicians that assemble in it every June by having them perform all at once in a stretch of the town centre and sea front that includes familiar landmarks – the Jubilee Hall and the medieval Moot Hall as well as unexpected spaces such as shops, pubs and private homes, and of course outdoors. Orchestras, ensembles and soloists visiting the Festival perform alongside local folk musicians, brass bands, bell-ringers, jazz and pop musicians. You are as likely to stumble across an international concert pianist playing an upright pub piano as children performing in a corner of local shops, outdoor performances by steam organs or an orchestra on the seafront. Audience members wend their own way through this sonic Babel making their own individual and unique concert experience.”

It will be followed by a huge picnic on the beach. Yum.  Hope to see you there!

You Can Still Dress Down in a Dress

Posted by Fleur

There's a bit of a tomboy hidden amongst us all at Fleur - someone who'd much rather be playing on the beach in jeans and pumps rather than frilling it up in a frock. However we've all been drawn into dresses this season - and I don't mean dresses for special occassions but dresses that you can effortlessly wear every day without feeling like you're on the way to a party or the office.

Kassie, our Store Manager, has perhaps been the biggest 'dress-resister' but even she admits that she can't stop wearing this lovely dress from Sandwich below.  She's worn it here with tights and Cara ankle boots (in fact her tights are reversible - brown on one side, black on the other - alas not available from us but a great idea!).

Kassie in dress by Sandwich

So come on girls, give the dress a chance this spring - you'll be amazed how good it feels when teamed with the right accessories - denim jacket, leggings, Victoria pumps, a Nica bag on your shoulder and not a frill in sight. Sandwich have done the everyday dress really well and here are some of our favourites including the one worn by Kassie above:

3 dresses from Sandwich

If you're in Aldeburgh for the long weekend then we hope you enjoy the sunshine and here are the Fleur opening hours if you fancy popping in. Happy Easter!

Love is in the air...

Posted by Fleur

Yes we're head over heels in love with all the new spring stock that we're busily unpacking for you this week. Sandwich has taken a botanical theme in it's advertising and this really shows through in the collection. Greens and greys with a flash of coral, it all has a really feminine and relaxed feel to it.  The classic Seasalt shapes are back with some great new patterns and colours.  You can take a look at some of the Sandwich and Seasalt items on our Spring/Summer page.

And there's definitely a hint of the romantic in our latest window display, rose-tinted specs are not required, it has a soft glow all of it's own:

We have a great selection of Aigle coats and gilets, like the Aigle Felice piment waistcoat shown below - great to layer up for a breezy stroll on Aldeburgh beach.  The hood is removable, as is the trim although we don't think you'll ever want to take it off once you've tried it.  The quality of Aigle is wonderful, great to have them on board.

Hello Sunshine!

The sun has appeared at the perfect time because we're busy celebrating Aldeburgh's independent shops this week.  Today is your last chance to get 10% off everything in Fleur and our sister shop O&C Butcher.  In fact today is the last day of lots of special activities in the town.  Lots of foodie masterclasses going on at Lawsons, Choppings Hill and Salters Butchers; children's story telling session in Write the Blurb and discounts in many stores.

We have great summer clothes and accessories in, including swimwear from Jackpot, sunglasses from Alibi, shorts from White Stuff and Seasalt, Birkenstock sandals (those new pink sole ones are so popular!) and iPanema flip fops. Embrace the sunshine ladies!

Toes out... toes in....

Posted by Fleur

We have some lovely new Birkenstock sandals in store which are proving to be very popular so I thought we should share. Birkenstock have added a twist to the classic Madrid and Gizeh styles by introducing bright coloured soles and we love them, a lot. Take a look...

Shown top: Birkenstock Gizeh, £49.95; Centre and Bottom: Birkenstock Madrid £39.95

If you'd rather keep those toes cosy for a bit longer (let's face it, the weather isn't really motivating us to get the nail polish out is it?) then how about some Victoria Plimsolls.  Look at all those colours, decisions decisions. At £35 each perhaps you could justify two pairs for different outfits especially as they're machine washable - they will last and last. My grey ones are forever on my feet - such an easy colour to put with all my crops and skirts.

Why Aldeburgh rocks (in a classical way)

Posted by Fleur

There is a great deal of excitement and anticipation in Aldeburgh at the moment.  We always love the pre-summer buzz but this year there is something extra special going on. This Friday (7 June) sees the start of Aldeburgh Music's 66th Aldeburgh Festival which this year will be celebrating the Britten Centenary year.  There is an online version of the festival brochure if you'd like to see what events are on in the coming weeks.

Perhaps the reason that everyone is being drawn into the excitement is because there's a very visual statement in honour of Britten - a stage which has been built on Aldeburgh beach for the outdoor performance of Peter Grimes - 'Grimes on the Beach'. It's been fascinating to watch the set come together, boats being put in place, lighting rigs going up. You can't get a latte in Munchies without bumping into some of the crew. So we wish all of the performers lots of luck and we'll keep our fingers crossed for dry weather!

And don't think that the Aldeburgh Festival is just about sitting and listening.  Walking shoes are required for the Punchdrunk Theatre performance of 'The Borough' which is sponsored by our sister shop O&C Butcher. It promises to be a theatrical journey around Aldeburgh, find out more about The Borough on the Aldeburgh Music website.

If you're unable to make it to Aldeburgh but would like to hear part of the Festival, the Festival Service will take place at Aldeburgh Church this Sunday (9th) and will be broadcast on BBC Radio Suffolk. The Archbishop of Canterbury will attend and choristers from Kings College Cambridge will perform some of Britten's work.

We know that we normally get more excited about shoes and handbags than opera but you just can't help get sucked in at the moment!  Although on that note we should add that the shop does have some particularly pretty things in at the moment - there are a few exampls below including iPanema FlipFlops, Birkenstock Madrid Sandals, Cara shoes, Victoria Plimsolls, bags from Seasalt and Nica and lots of lovely clothes from Jackpot, White Stuff, Nougat, Seasalt, Part Two and Sandwich.

How to stay warm in the 'spring'

Posted by Fleur

Yes we know it's chilly and we've been trying not to talk about the weather but the sun is shining in Aldeburgh today and we're feeling more spring-like at last.  But of course it's still a tad cold so we have the answer for you - lovely spring jumpers and scarves from Part Two, Sandwich and Seasalt.  In fact as I write this I'm wearing the Seasalt 'Aftersails' navy/cream stripe top shown folded below - it's so useful and so very flattering and has cute little yellow buttons on the shoulder. As always we have many more in store so pop in if you're in town.

Out With the Old, In With the New

Posted by Fleur

Oops we need to say sorry because we've been so busy buying for Autumn as well as unpacking for Spring that we haven't got round to putting Spring/Summer 2013 items on the website yet.  So, to tide you over, here's a snap shot of some of the colours in store - so good to have fresh things all around us.

We promise that a better view of the collection will be on here soon.... honest.

Let the Buying Commence!

Posted by Fleur

The shop floor might be a little quiet at this time of year but there’s plenty going on behind the scenes.  So whilst we’re selling off the Autumn/Winter 2012 stock we’re also eagerly unpacking Spring/Summer 2013 and it’s so nice to get some fresh pieces out on display. But it’s also the start of the buying season for Auntumn/Winter 2013.  So we’re pretty multi-seasonal right now!

Typically the first A/W buying meetings in London coincided with the first snow fall of the year so transport ground to a halt but that didn’t deter us, we had shiny new clothes to look at! It really is exciting to see the new ranges and choose what our customers will be able to try on later in the year.  And we think you’ll be pleased with our choices. 

Today we met with Intown and Seasalt.  Our regular customers will be relieved to know that we’ve ordered extra stock of the very popular Intown cords for the Autumn and also their treggings – in a great range of colours too.  Seasalt gets better every season and we were really pleased with what we saw there.

So it’s meetings galore for us for the next few weeks but if you’re in Aldeburgh, pop in and see what’s arriving in store now.

When The East Wind Blows...

Posted by Fleur

Sandwich_red_dressOur Store Manager Kassie has just got back from two weeks in Mexico the lucky bean and she's finding it a tad chilly back in Aldeburgh. To keep out the easterly winds she’s pictured here wearing her furry gilet from a few seasons back.

Jackpot are doing a lovely longer version shown hanging in the shop below. Looks lovely teamed with the Seasalt top and the Sandwich necklace.

(P.S that gorgeous red dress hanging to the left of Kassie is also from Sandwich, perfect for a Christmas do!)

The shop gets a makeover

Posted by Fleur Aldeburgh

No, Gok wasn't involved in this makeover just a good lick of paint and a few tweaks here and there and our shop has been polished up ready for the new season. When you sell beautiful clothes you need a beautiful backdrop for them and we're really pleased with the new look.
