This Copenhagen-based creates ‘80s-ready dresses along with bold silhouettes. Founded by two Danish influencers – Jeanette Madsen and Thora Valdimars – their first collection launched in fall 2018 but their party dresses are a favorite among the Instagram crowd. Shop Rotate here.
Despite being in founded in 2013 by Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer Moss recently captured the attention of the fashion industry with their fall 2018 New York Fashion Week show. The show merged activism and social conversation by celebrating black culture. Their claim to fame is a new take on streetwear and their advocation for black culture. Check out Pyer Moss here.
Bande Noir only has one collection under their belt, but that’s all they needed. Former editor and stylist Mayte Allende is the creative director and brings a mix of ‘80s and ‘90s silhouettes with delicate details. They play on femininity with unexpected details like open-back turtlenecks or sheer puff-sleeved blouses. Shop Bande Noir here.
Arje is both a menswear and womenswear company that has been hailed as a “see-now, buy now brand” created by husband and wife team Bessie Afnaim Corral and Oliver Corral. They launch three collections per year – with pieces available to shop within two weeks of debut. Arje offers pieces like chunky knits, shearling coats, and other wardrobe essentials. Shop Arje here.
Tach Clothing shot to fame thanks to their Instagram-worthy cropped cardigan. But the famous cropped cardigan is just one piece of the Tach Clothing puzzle. They boast pieces like vintage-inspired blouses and cool jackets (well, almost as cool as Members Only jackets). The pieces are designed and handmade in Uruguay. Be prepared to see them explode on the fashion scene. Shop Tach Clothing here.
Kelsey Randall is based in Brooklyn and creates custom made-to-order pieces that redefines the “couture” scene for the younger consumers. Randall’s pieces include music festival-ready pieces, romantic baby doll dresses, and more. Lorde wore her designs on stage, so you know she’s no joke. Check out Kelsey Randall here.
Like Tach Clothing, Orseund Iris also creates Instagram-worthy pieces – like their silk, open back blouse. The brand offers a range of seasonless pieces and have quickly became a favorite for the “cool girl” looking for new wardrobe essentials. Expect to see this New York-based brand take over the fashion scene. Check out Orseund Iris here.
