Unless I could afford Nanushka pieces or would have a chance to actually shop at their stores again, then it’s a maybe. I also really love LOQ (an LA-based shoe brand), but I’d rather buy their shoes from Bloomingdale’s or LOQ website. Garmentory also pulls inventory from many Indie-boutiques, and I know I can search for better deals there. One thing I really wish that the Frankie Shop would declare the names of the international designers or labels in the product description. Yes, it might be because they want to keep it a bit more exclusive and harder to find, but don’t you think it would give other designers proper credit. Regardless, I am a big fan, and I will check back their shop from time to time to see which pieces they have and admire their styling from afar.
It’s not worth the money (talking about this trench coat), at least at this point in my life as I’d much rather save and spend on an Acne trench coat, bigger brand, and much better quality pieces.
I’ve worked with them in a different capacity before.
Almina Concept: Founded in 2017 by Angela Gahng. She had worked at Club Monaco, O’2nd, and Loewe before. Her brand offers create contemporary wardrobe staples, trendy and at a very competitive price point. I have been a fan of what she does with the brand ever since. Their stuff is currently being produced in Korea, and the quality is there. I have and this camel sweater (worn differently, here) and this blazer (also styled differently, here and here), both bought with a discount code (thanks Angela). I love their light, airy, and feminine aesthetic and think you should absolutely check them out!
SuggestyNYC: Based in NYC, they are a recommendation platform helps women customize and put together outfits. Yes, they do have an app and a pretty big team! I thought the concept is cool and unique because they offer all Korean designers and educate the customers with the brands. They have gifted me this dress and this skirt from the brand bibyseob. They do have pop-up shops occasionally opened in New York. So check them out if you’re into unique pieces by Korean designers. Some of their things are really similar to what the Frankie Shop has in-store, except the styling and photography are different!
I hope this review is helpful and that you’ve learned a bit more about the Frankie Shop! Let me know what you think and whether you would purchase from them. Or if you have, what is your opinion about this Instagram-famous ‘IT’ girl shop? Have a productive work week!
