In economic circles the acronym BRIC refers to Brazil, Russia, India, and China, four nations which are at a similar stage of advanced economic development and are poised to assume an unassailable position of global dominance in the coming years.

Not quite ready for a head-to-toe commitment? An ASOS clutch and a Jil Sander ballet flat will have you channeling Joni Mitchell in a perfectly modern way.
