What does pre-ordering mean?
Get early access to next season’s most-coveted collections, securing the must-have items everyone is talking about before they sell out. Once your order is placed, we will deliver it to you as soon as it’s available.
How do I pre-order?
Look for items marked ‘PRE-ORDER’ and simply add the styles you love to your Shopping Bag and proceed to Checkout as usual.
When will my pre-order arrive?
FW20 Runway pieces will be delivered to you by October 2020. Once you have secured your item, we will ship it to you as soon as it becomes available. As soon as your pre-ordered piece has been sent, you’ll receive an email with the tracking details, so you know when to expect it.
Please note that when purchasing a pre-order piece, any items from our current collection in your Shopping Bag won’t be shipped until the pre-order is ready to be sent. If you’d prefer to receive any current pieces sooner, we’d suggest placing a separate order. If you have any queries about the delivery window for a specific product, please contact Customer Care for assistance on +44 330 022 5700.
Why do I need to select a shipping option for pre-orders?

COVID-19 (coronavirus) FAQs and information
Is it safe to shop from your site?
The health and safety of colleagues and the wider community has always been our first priority. We have enhanced safety measures in place to safeguard teams, going above and beyond government guidelines to maximize protection.
What are you doing to ensure colleagues' safety?
We have introduced a number of additional health-and-safety measures that go above and beyond the government guidelines. These include:
- 1m or above social distancing respected throughout site

- Staggered breaks, staggered entry and exit to site and a one-way system implemented to site
- Increased cleaning and disinfecting of equipment
- PPE, including masks, gloves and sanitizer
What about the delivery of my purchase?
For your safety, we’re providing contactless delivery during this time. Our driver will ring or knock on your door, place your order on the ground and step back one or more metres. Instead of asking for a signature, we’ll make a note of your full name to ensure your order has been left in safe hands.
For added peace of mind, all our drivers will be wearing face masks and gloves and are regularly washing their hands and carrying hand sanitiser. We’re also continuing to monitor their health and well-being so they can continue completing deliveries to the highest possible standard. Our fleet of vans are disinfected daily and deep cleaned once a week to maintain utmost cleanliness.

Why are some items marked as final sale?
Fragrance, nail polish, and aerosols cannot be exchanged or returned due to transport restrictions.
