When it comes to accessories, the British definitely know how to do it right. (Two words: Crown jewels.)
Set to launch stores on New York City's Bleecker Street Oct. 28 and Union Square West Nov. 18, the trendy retailer plans to open 100 stateside boutiques by 2015, according to the paper.
Now that's the kind of British invasion we could get used to.
The Monsoon-owned chain also reportedly plans to launch a U.S. site selling its cheap-chic wares, which run the gamut from party clutches and bangles to totes, toppers, and tights.
The store also carries sleepwear, underwear, lifestyle goods, footwear, umbrellas, and children's items.
"I cannot see anything as good," founder and chairman Peter Simon told WWD, explaining the gap in the market Accessorize intends to fill.
"A lot of clothes shops that sell accessories are competitors. But we don't have a direct competitor in the U.S., as we don't in Europe.
"Claire's is the teen market. Our customer is 18 to 35 years old."
Yippee! We can finally stop climbing over tweens to get our paws on some hoop earrings.
Actually -- scratch that. Our first purchase may just have to be the stars-and-stripes clutch that Simon says the retailer will launch to celebrate its American debut.
Talk about being "reborn in the USA."
Speaking of stylish Brits, Victoria Beckham has been deemed more influential than Queen Elizabeth.
