The perfect present for the biggest Madewell fans

December 17, 2010 |  2:31 pm


Anyone who loves the vintage-meets-tomboy wares at Madewell will be putting a membership to the brand’s Stylephile club at the top of their Christmas lists this year.

As with many fashionable clubs (hello Net-A-Porter’s year of shoes subscription for $10,000) a membership to Madewell’s Stylephile isn’t cheap ($1,235 for the year). Though for major fans of the line, it probably works out to be the same as shopping in the store throughout the year.

Stylephile is like a fruit of the month club (but with clothes and accessories). Madewell will deliver a box of their designer’s favorite pieces of the season to the recipient’s door four times a year, with items that have yet to hit stores or be released online. For some styling help, members will get a consultation from a Madewell designer to get ideas on different ways to wear their year’s worth of clothing. Wonder if the group of designers who provide consultations includes Alexa Chung? One can dream.

For more information or to order a membership, call Madewell at (877) 499-7947 or e-mail
