Following the resounding success of its New York debut via an invitation-only charity runway show staged by the United Colors of Fashion during Spring/Summer Fashion Week 2012, Danish women’s apparel brand Style Butler has at last launched a Shanghai flagship, long-awaited ever since designer Pernille Leschly Halle began trading with industry buyers from her private showroom in 2007. Leschly Halle, the third generation of a fashion-centric family, and all her classic, feminine pieces featuring Inner Mongolian cashmere, all-natural silks, and responsibly-sourced animal pelts, can now be found smack bang in the centre of the French Concession – hurrah!
The monochrome space is bedecked with sleek, dark wooden ceiling beams, whitewashed wood tables and slender racks, where bohemian-inspired designs like drip-dyed silk dresses, elegant goatskin leather blouses and sequin-adorned pencil skirts sit ultra-pretty. Also among the boutique’s charming offering are statement pieces by hard-to-find Danish jewelry brands like Claire/Anastasia with its handmade, silk-embellished gold necklaces, as well as fur and silver bracelets, and Stine A, whose chic rhodium and gold-plated soft cartilage earrings, rings and pendants will add a touch of fun to your already flawless outfit. Dane-ty!
