The new awarded designer from British Fashion Council: Wales Bonner 

Remember the white dress that Megan Merkle wore at his first picture with the baby? Well, it’s a Wales Bonner dress, a cool English brand launched in 2014 after Grace Bonner, the designer, graduated Central Saint Martin. And now the winner of British Fashion Council award. The line focused on clean tailoring and presenting a specific notion of luxury through the lens of European and Afro-Atlantic approaches. Edward Enninful OBE, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue and Chair of the Fund Committee said: “Her label Wales Bonner has a unique vision, which really relates to the now. Her diverse perspective and boundary breaking design is what we need more of within the industry.”  Previous winners of the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund include Christopher Kane, Erdem, Mary Katrantzou, Molly Goddard, Mother of Pearl, Nicholas Kirkwood, palmer//harding, Peter Pilotto and Sophia Webster. https://walesbonner.net

Japanese rigour: Cyclas and the architecture of colours 

I met the brand two years ago, at Paris Fashion Week. And well, now I can buy the clothes from Bergdorf Goodman. Just like that! The designer Keiko Onose combined the finest fabrics selected or created particular about the touch, sophisticated details and Japanese craftsmanship for clean silhouette that embody pure and timeless elegance and real sense of luxury. In Pre-Fall 2016 season, Keiko’s ready-to-wear collection officially launched as Cyclas, representing its global debut in Paris in January 2016. In July 2016, Cyclas launched exclusively in the NY at Bergdorf Goodman, worldwide leading retailers. https://cyclas-official.com

Ampersand As Apostrophe 

It was love at first sight with Ampersand As Apostrophe bags. Maybe for their architectural lines (the designer of the brand, Jessica Park, is a Architecture major turned Interiors major turned multi-faceted artist). Or perhaps I was captivated by their versatile look. But definitely I loooved the idea of making new bags out of worn materials. The first collection made from 100 year-old Mailbags, featured over the shoulder bags that doubled as clutches and triple as anything else you may feel like. The newest collection is based on another shape: conceptually born from the oldest bag to exist—the paper grocery bag – the totes have been refined and re-designed into the perfect carry-all to quite literally carry “your all”, all while staying true to its original form. https://ampersandasapostrophe.com
