The latest fashion websites are luxuries unto themselves.

The one-stop shop brings together the best independent boutiques, from São Paulo to Stockholm. Shop old favorites like L’Eclaireur in Paris and discover new gems like Mumbai’s Le Mill.

For the globe-trotting clotheshorse, or for anyone with an over­subscribed closet, Vault Couture.com stores clothes and photos of each piece to create a digital wardrobe. Using its site, you can create looks as you would an iTunes playlist and have them delivered to either your home or travel destination.

Customize pieces from your favorite designers on this ingenious four-month-old website launched by Aslaug Magnusdottir, the brains behind e-retailer Moda Operandi. Longer sleeves? A different shade of faille? Your wish is TinkerTailor.com’s command.

Debrett’s fanatics will curtsy to this veritable online cabinet of curiosities offering rare items with a royal pedigree, such as cuff links by Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia and briefcases by Böle, purveyor to Swedish royalty.
