To help us choose what we are going to buy, we spoke to its founder, Roberta Benteler, to see what will be in her Black Friday basket.
How do you feel about Black Friday?
Black Friday in the US represents the start of the A/W sale whereas in the UK it is still very much "in-season" and viewed by our customers as a good opportunity to enjoy discounts on investment pieces for winter.
Any top tips for shopping on the day?
Be organised of what you need and keep a clear idea of what your budget is. Invest in a coat that would usually be out of your price range as you will wear this for years to come.
What will be in your Black Friday shopping basket?
Derek Lam's Vicuna suede and wool coat is such a classic that it will never date, worth the investment.
