Review of Debenhams
Product range. Comprehensive. Which is something to be well expected given that Debenhams stock more than 3000 pieces of womenswear alone. Debenhams stores are go-to destinations for all kinds of menswear, womenswsear, kids clothes, footwear, accessories, lingerie, and even electricals. Overall, Debenhams favour uncomplicated pieces catered to the tastes and budgets of an average middle-class customer. Styles, colourways, and shades are all quite typical of no frills mass market. The clothes there are to suit virtually any age: t-shirts with floral designs, denim skirts and breeches, white office blouses, and monochrome bodycon dresses will fit nicely into the wardrobes of both 20 year old girls and the ladies of a more advanced age.
Chic. 'Chic' is not the first word that comes to mind when think of Debenhams, neither it's the second, Debenhams are rather a comprehensive department store.
Originality. Debenhams selection of affordable white t-shirts, floral print dresses, striped jumpers, black office trousers, and classic knitted cardigans is arguably unrivalled The pieces themselves, however, are all but ordinary.
Pricing. It will take you quite a while to find something at Debenhams that would with a price tag over £100.
Corporate history highlights. Debenhams is one of the oldest British department store chains. The first store was opened back in the 18th century, but Debenhams department stores as we know them today started in 1905. Initially, Debenhams targeted working class households. But it was Debenhams who were the first among department stores to collaborate with high profile designers. Debenhams have a respectable history of past collaborations with Julien Macdonald, Matthew Williamson, Henry Holland, John Rocha, Jeff Banks, Betty Jackson, Jasper Conran, and other fashion designers.
