About The Frankie Shop
As usual, in any Brand Focus posts, this section will include a brief history and overview of the brand/shop.
The Frankie Shop offers high-end fashion clothes for women. According to my Google search results, I’ve visited it many times recently. But really, I am obsessed with them. Their stuff has a French cool-girl vibe, lots of basics with a twist, definitely my style! Frankie Shop has a brick-and-mortar shop in New York and one in Paris.They are known as having ‘unfussy, minimal, and wallet-conscious style’.
Last time I was in New York, I made a quick stop to see what the shop was about per recommendation of my blogger friend based in NYC, Yealim from andbibi. After following their brand for a couple of years, I would say my first impression of the shop was underwhelmed. I did not buy anything and left without making any conversation since the girls seemed occupied. Upon the quick inspection of the store and labels they carried, I spied a few Korean labels in some of the blazers, felt the fabrics, and thought that they wouldn’t look as great nor last as long. I went home and am now still fantasizing about having at least a piece from the Frankie Shop in my wardrobe. It’s weird what Instagram and an account with a cool vibe and good styling on photos can do to you!
They have recently added Nanushka, another blogger fashion brand that I am obsessed with and wish that I could afford something from them one day. Very similar effortless style combining function with flair aka what the Frankie Shop carries. A list of a few famous designers they offer is Rachel Comey, Caron Callahan, Karen Walker, LOQ, and a mix of international brands from Australia, Korea, Russia, Ukraine, Spain, and more.
One day as I was scrolling their IG-stories as they announced the restock, I immediately added this Horn Button Khaki Trench Coat in my cart. It was under the $200 mark, not too expensive for a trench coat looking this cool but not cheap either.
About the Horn Button Khaki Trench Coat
The Frankie Shop has quite a good selection of oversized blazers and cool looking trousers, but I’ve decided on a trench coat. Main reason is because I’ve been on the hunt for an oversized one like this for awhile. It arrives quickly from their shop in New York. Again, another moment of feeling underwhelmed once I see the brand label and fabric. The cotton fabric feels cheap and not the best fabric I’ve seen obviously. I’ve googled Kiki Love, the label of the trench, and all I’ve got is a Korean website that sells clothes. Language is Korean, assuming it’s exclusive to only Korean customers.
