Victoria Lane Fashions


From storm and tempest to a heat wave, this July has certainly kept us guessing. The fashion world doesn't help either with Autumn collections hitting the rails while we are still waiting to wear some of our high summer clothes.

Luckily we have both options in the shop at the moment so you can top up on holiday outfits and plan for the cooler weather in the same trip. With all our sale items now selling at 70% off original price it is well worth paying us a visit, although don't leave it too late; once it's gone, it's gone!

Our newsletter this month contains a real mix of subjects. We have news from Germany where Vicki has been shopping for next year's spring and summer clothes. At the same time we've had some beautiful early arrivals for our autumn stock from Rabe, Just White and Toni - plus Basler, the subject of our blog this month. We also headed over to the Harrogate Fashion Week event to take a close look at the Saint James collection and we had appointments with a couple of potential new collections which we hope to tell you about soon.






Düsseldorf was quiet this year, not a bad thing as the weather was very hot and humid, with no sun, so crowded showrooms were not the place to be!

However, while it felt quiet it was actually an exhilarating show with designers displaying a lot of energy to make their collections stand out. All of our favourite brands were there showing exciting collections in some very wearable colours for the British market - blues, pinks, Mediterranean blues, lilacs and turquoises. All in all, we were very happy with the quality and breadth of the collections.

The highlight of the visit was undoubtedly the revival of Frank Walder. Their showroom was very busy but despite the heat it was the one place all the buyers wanted to be as the brand showed it was finally back on track. Having gone through a lean time, Frank Walder has put together a collection which excited both traditional buyers and attracted new ones.

We were just as enthralled and have chosen three sets from the overall collection:

Madeira - based on the colours of orchid and crocus, there are fabulous jersey jackets in Missoni prints and self print jersey jackets in orchid. There is also a selection of lovely striped knitwear in baby pink, white and grey. This collection will have a pre-Christmas delivery.

Valencia - black and red teamed with black and white animal prints, mixed with floral designs which give an exotic feel to the collection. This was very exciting to see and we are sure our customers will feel the same when it hits the rails in the new year.

Santorini - in sky blue and ink, mixed with white, this collection sports fabulous jersey graphic prints. The tops and skirts offer a fantastic mix and match selection which is sure to please. Again, this will be in the shop in the new year.



The Last Of Michèle - Don't Miss Out!



We mentioned at the start that our sale offer has now grown to 70% off original prices. This is the final opportunity for you to pick up some real bargains and maybe buy that blouse or jacket that you've been coveting for the past few months. There are some fantastic bargains to be had and we still have a selection of T-shirts, tops and summer trousers in wonderful colours, all reduced by 70%.



However, the biggest bargain of all is our offer on Michèle trousers: our entire stock, previously ranging from £128 - £149, has now been reduced to £45. Yes, you read that correctly. Just £45 for a pair of original Michèle trousers! Please don't miss out on this outstanding offer as this really is the last of our stock, which will not be replaced.



Welcome Back To Basler



Sadly the fashion house of Basler has been missing from our rails for some time. Not because we stopped buying their beautiful clothes but because the company ceased trading. Now there's been a staff buy out and production is in full swing again.




We are delighted with their new collections and quality and we are very happy to say that their new autumn range will be gracing our rails from August.

From their five overall fashion interpretations for Autumn and Winter 2019/2020 we have selected the Gorgeous Green theme, inspired by traditional British fabric patterns such as Blackwatch that are interspersed with bright floral designs. Deep, dark tones such as navy and pine form a perfect backdrop for highlights of lilac, violet, lavender and sand.

Check out our blog for full details of the collection and our events page for news of our Basler showcase on 13 August. Hope to see you there.

New Arrivals



In the last couple of weeks we've been receiving the first of our new autumn stock, mainly from Rabe and Toni. If you follow us on social media then you will have seen some early photos and descriptions - but just in case you haven't, here's what we've been saying about them.




'Look what's just arrived in the shop. A gorgeous navy and white patterned jacket with coordinating Rabe T-shirt. Paired with the amazing Toni travel trouser, available in navy or black; always smart, they don't crease and are unbelievably comfortable.'




'Bang on trend and you can wear them now! New season tops from Rabe - stripes with prints in red and navy. Paired with Toni travel trousers, available in navy or black. Smart, comfortable and never crease! What more can you ask for?'




'We're so excited to tell you that new season stock has arrived from Rabe. We've got fabulous tops and sweaters in a colour mix of stone, black and yellow with a little touch of sparkle for fun!'

'Who let the cat out of the bag? New season tops from Rabe come in leopard print overlaid with floral patterns highlighted with yellow. There are matching cardigans too. We suggest teaming them with the lovely new travel trousers by Toni.'

Just White separates have also arrived, this season in black and white with hints of cerise pink. Toni travel and classic trousers are available in two designs - Sally with a slim leg and Marlene for the fuller leg, both in black and navy.

There is much, much more to come so it's worth popping into the shop regularly to check out our new stock.

And Toni have brought back their very popular knee length shorts, ideal for holidays. We've teamed a bright pink pair with a printed sporty pink top from Rabe. Good to have on hand for those days when it actually stops raining!



The Saint Comes Marching In



Earlier this week we paid a visit to the Harrogate Fashion Week event in the International Conference Centre - it was just at the bottom of our road so we didn't have far to go. Our main aim was to see and buy clothing from the Spring and Summer 2020 Saint James collection, one of our favourite fashion houses.

This quality French label has a reputation for designing clothes with a nautical twist. Their famous Breton stripes come in many colours, using 100% wool for sweaters and cardigans and 100% cotton in their tops.

Then there is the ever popular round neck, three-quarter sleeve Garde-Cote T-shirt made from UV Skin-Protection microfiber. If you've not bought one before, this specially designed garment will help protect your body against harmful solar rays, offering twice the skin protection than pure cotton.

As expected we found plenty to excite us and you'll be seeing the results of our visit in the new year.
