More than this though, Browns is a complete shopping experience, where there is always something new and spectacular to see, whether it is a one off silk wrap from Indonesia or a precious gemstone ring from Rajasthan. And, of course, where you can find out which labels are hot, which are classics and which are about to get big quicker than you can say "fashion victim".
