Man the Label – Online Shop Review
Man the Label was founded by Sheila Man, a jewellery designer whose strong point is a great fondness for the South American culture, with a dash of originality. Man is born in Argentina, surrounded by kinfolk of artisans who sparked a creative influence in her through her growing years.
After studying Fashion Design in Australia, Sheila Man launched her vision through her jewellery line. Man the Label has garnered celebrity following and has been featured in many prominent lifestyle publications such as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and Vogue.
Man the Label’s website speaks prominently of its aesthetics; large images interchange, featuring the strong and chunky accessories from the brand. This becomes the highlight of a rather minimalist website, with words and labels taking a step back while the products take the spotlight. Feature banners are shot with a distinct, vintage magazine feel, making users imagine they are flipping through pages of a fashion publication.
The shop’s gallery presents the accessories in a clear, top angle; radiating with the same contemporary feel similar to its homepage. Description and pricing are stated in underneath Man the Label’s products. Clicking through the link, users are guided to a page containing a detailed description, product care instruction and a view of related products. Images can be zoomed in for a closer view when users hover on the item.
Man the Label is all about high-fashion jewellery for women. One can view a range of exceptionally made necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings within the shop. An exclusive range of accessories are found on a separate section, which showcases bags, clutches and key rings. Prices are mid-range, catering to edgy, fashionable women in their 20s, 30s and even 40s.
Offering both Australian and international shipping, Man the Label presents users with free shipping perks for domestic orders over AUS$100 and global orders of AUS$200. Returns are only permitted when the delivered item is found faulty. Exchange is limited to color change and item suitability (i.e., bracelets).
