A couple of years ago, online fashion retailer Everlane upended the idea of luxury clothing, offering items at a similar quality without the exorbitant mark-up. The brand’s idea was simple: cut out the brick and mortar and you could shave off tens, if not hundreds, of dollars from the price tag. It became a hit. In the first few months of the brand’s launch, many of its offerings were constantly sold out.
I am a big fan of Everlane’s well-tailored classic products. It also helped that they were affordable and of great quality, which is slowly becoming a rare sight in the fast luxury fashion scene. My credit card bill regularly displayed Everlane’s acronym. Unfortunately, I had to rely on a freight forwarder as the brand never offered international shipping and while this did increase the final price, it was still good value for money.
Everlane has finally decided to satiate its overseas fans, even it’s for just a week. From 16 November to 22 November, Everlane is offering international shipping to 50 different countries, one of which is Singapore, for a flat rate of US$15. According to Alyssa Bergerson, marketing professional at Everlane, it’s the company’s way of testing the waters and it will take between 10 to 14 days for your orders to reach Singapore.
There aren’t any shipping restrictions on its products – everything is freely available, from its duffel weekenders to leather accessories. I’ve already got my credit card at the ready.
