Rails – Lumberjack Chic
If you’ve spotted your favourite celebrity or blogger wearing an impossibly flattering plaid shirt in the last few years, then there’s a good chance it was made by American clothing brand, Rails.
What, you say, could possibly be so special about a button-down lumberjack style shirt? Well, the fashion forward sect can concede to the fact that stiff cotton shirts now take a backseat to more draped silhouettes that look relaxed, yet refined. Rails owner and LA boy, Jeff Abrams and his design team have cracked the code and established a brand which not only produces high quality garments, but effortlessly embodies the Southern California vibe, that consumers have been yearning after for years… think Wildfox and Lauren Moshi.
To the layman, a shirt is a shirt and on many levels, and yes although this notion is true, there is something more unique which is happening here! Because since the creation of the Rails brand in 2008, its signature button-down shirt have now become an “it girl” must-have. Celebrity fans of the brand include Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Alba, Reese Witherspoon, Cheryl Cole, Una Foden and many many more; in addition to these there are top Fashion Bloggers like Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad and Aimee Song of Song of Style, who constantly rave about these fun rails shirts.
“I started Rails at a time when celebrity influence was becoming exponentially more visible. Not only tabloids, but reputable fashion publications began covering celebrities’ daily lives and style”, Abrams shared. “Soon after came the emergence and popularity of bloggers and social media channels which gave us a global audience, but the growth of our celebrity following has been very organic; they are wearing our collection because they genuinely love the products.”
It all started with hats and hooded sweatshirts, Abrams shared. From there, he widened his scope to include a new take on button-down shirts: the staple that catapulted Rails to celebrity status. “When I first started making shirts, almost all of the button downs on the market were in some form of a stiff cotton fabrication”, Abrams recalls. “So I developed a unique tencel/rayon blended fabric that would maintain the classic shirting heritage, but that felt luxurious and draped in a sexier, more feminine way. We applied this concept to plaids, denims, solids, and prints, focusing on becoming experts on both fit and feel.” – Jeff Abrams , Rails Creator
Rails is now a top seller in contemporary fashion. Numbers don’t lie; the company has seen 300% growth year-over-year, with no sign of slowing.

Chloe Sims worksout in Wildfox
Towie star Chloe Sims looks casual and cool wearing Wildfox Couture from Spoiled Brat
They TOWIE cast have been busy filming for season 20, which debuts tomorrow night – excited much???
So we really cant blame the ITVBe cast’s Chloe Sims, Dan Edgar and Diags for letting off some steam as they larked around in their local Essex Park today.
The 34-year-old blonde bombshell couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as she enjoyed a playful take on her usual outdoors exercise session with her towie pals.
Chloe was certainly looking stylish and was dressed for comfort for the energetic day out in our Wildfox baggy zip-up hoodie, with the Stay High graphic on the back. The TOWIE star, who joined in season 2 in 2011, teamed the look with a matching pair of Wild Fox skin-tight leggings and trainers.
Despite her low-key ensemble, she opted for maximum glamour when it came to her beauty look in the form of heavily bronzed cheekbones and a layer of false lashes.
The wildfox set worn by Chloe is available at Spoiled Brat – the hoodie and pants come in the deliciously soft wildfox fabric that we LOVE about the brand, and both pieces are from their new season “Sun Kissed” collection. Wildfox has a huge celebrity following and Chloe is the latest to get in on the Wild Fox action 🙂 And Chloe has become quite the “brat” recently – last week she was spotted in our Tallulahs Threads denim jacket and our Happiness Brand cross body bag.
Shop both here in our official WILDFOX STORE

Lavish Alice behind the Scenes
Is Lavish Alice on your fashion radar?
Designers Lee Bloor and Matthew Newton are the faces behind British label of the moment, Lavish Alice.
With Celebrity Clientele like Gigi Hadid, Emma Roberts, Jessica Biel, Eva Longoria, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and Victoria Justice this brand has become a cult brand in its own right. Stocked at Spoiled Brat since its creation way back in 2011, Lavish Alice has since evolved into a premium collection which is lusted after by fashion editors and bloggers alike.
After meeting at Uni, Creative & Marketing Director Lee Bloor and Retail & Operations Director Matthew Lucian founded Lavish Alice upon graduation, marking the beginning of a pioneering 10-year-working relationship. In that time, the dynamic duo – who live and breathe their label – have created a trail- blazing brand that is renowned in the fashion-sphere for establishing trends and setting the bar for premium, innovative and original fashion.
We have spoken with the designers and asked them some questions about the brand, to get to know it better & thought we would share these with you 🙂
What made you launch a clothing line?
“After working in fashion PR, we noticed a gap in the market for an affordable luxury fashion brand. We Levered our own experience and advice, and masterminded Lavish Alice to bridge the gap between high street and high end“
How would you describe your brand?
“A mixture of minimalism and extravagance, featuring directional design with forward thinking lines. It’s both affordable and luxurious, while cleverly blending urban cool with an elegant feminine edge. You shop at Lavish Alice for something different and unique“
Why do you think it became such a hit with celebs?
“When A-listers are not wearing designer labels, they often mix it up and opt for cool, luxe quality, affordable luxury boutique brands like Lavish Alice for a completely unique and fresh look. We have built relationships with stylish stars who organically champion the brand, and often wear Lavish Alice pieces to sit front row at fashion week and on the red carpet“
Where do you get inspiration from?
“We draw inspiration from architecture, sculpture, interiors and the runway; driven by street style, a British sensibility and love of the new. At the heart of everything we do is the product. Bold design, intricate cuts, sensory cloth, a Lavish Alice twist; our garments are our obsession“
What trends are you excited about for spring?
“Shoulders will remain a focus, while cuffs and collars will be remixed and redeployed with a directional, feminine edge. As for accessories we feel, jewelry will be geometric and bold, complemented by new season slipper mules, ankle boots and skate shoes with knots and oversize fringing“
What should every woman have in her closet?
“Every woman should own a signature Lavish Alice cape blazer in her closet. It’s suitable for glamorous event style, dressed up with heels and accessories, or team with flats and jeans for more pared back, casual duties“
And we have the pleasure of introducing the new Lavish Alice SS17 range

The Laundry Room has arrived at Spoiled Brat
The Laundry Room : Another brand from the USA is at Spoiled Brat!
Just in, a brand new brand from the USA! The Laundry Room is a brand which caught our eye for their quirky slogans and designs and the extremely high quality of their product.
So who is The Laundry Room? Well the brand is the brainchild of two brothers, Jonah and Joey Pauline . From an early age, their creativity flowed on collaborative projects. Their mother was a true artistic talent who left behind journals of their West Coast adventures, full of illustrated sequences of their days at the beach, where they collected sand dollars littered on the shore during early morning low tides—loosely metaphorical for their future endeavors. Their life includes evenings of their father strumming his acoustic guitar, playing songs by ‘70s folk legends, rather than traditional bedtime stories. Their summers consisted of creating anything that caught their attention, from building hidden crawling paths disguised as stacked boxes in their laundry room to digging bunkers underneath their backyard deck, not to mention crafting zip lines into their pool.
This childhood theme of creating together continued to their teens and on. “Scrappy’” and “nostalgic” have always been appropriate descriptives of the brothers. They would occupy themselves by experimenting with unconventional business ideas, such as removing mistletoe from neighbors’ trees then packaging and selling that mistletoe to other neighbors as Christmas decorations. In their early 20s, they achieved their long-time goal of opening a premium clothing boutique. Seven years of retail would set the foundation for their ultimate goal of creating something to share with the world.
Some twists and turns in their assumed life path led them to see their creation come to life. They had been preparing for this from early childhood. It would become a balancing act between both idea and execution. Their very first collection felt an immediate embrace by retailers and influencers they had respected and followed for years. As equally gratifying was the response by the family of boutiques worldwide. It was then that The Laundry Room was born.
Today, The Laundry Room is the evolving expression of never ending soul searching. It is the findings of existential research coupled with childhood nostalgia. Always aspiring to bring a fresh perspective to those around them. Never giving up on skepticism. Always trusting in the good. The Laundry Room will always reflect these beliefs. They challenge all to find their private road of wander and to have an ever-evolving world.
