Six years after launching her eponymous collection, Barbara Briones is attempting to bring her business to an even broader group. "I believe that in terms of design and craftsmanship, the brand has become sophisticated to appeal to a more global woman, never leaving behind our focus on quality," the Chilean designer notes.
On the heels of her U.S. flagship store opening in Manhattan, luxury accessories designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal puts an appropriately patriotic spin on a basic pump and turns it into a star-spangled essential, just in time for the Fourth of July. The Priscilla Stars and Stripes retails for $1,050. Call 212-744-1842 or visit www.charlotteolympia.com.
