When it comes to picking outfits for Fashion Week, my biggest source of inspiration is scrolling through my favorite influencer pages on Instagram. While Celine and Fendi are always very prevalent, here are some less mainstream brands to peruse for your much-needed spring wardrobe additions:
Much more than just a clothing brand, Paloma Wool is a multi-faceted project that includes clothing, photography, and more. Paloma Lanna, the founder, collaborates with other artists for each collection and creates the pieces locally in Barcelona. Her designs are timeless as well as season-less, including chunky knits to silky tops, and recently added menswear. You may recognize their face paint-printed tops, drawn by Tana Latorre, from many of your fave IG girls.
Copenhagen-based Ganni has been all over our radar thanks to our favorite stylish Danish influencers, including Emili Sindlev and Josefine HJ. The label is based on the most basic of silhouettes and mixed with bold prints and colors. Their accessories section is also a fashion lovers dream.
Slightly less flamboyant than Ganni, Gestuz is also a contemporary take on every woman’s go-to classics. Founder Sanne Sehested wanted their customers to have “a sense of something conventional about [them], even at [their] most refined”, and accomplishes this with fringe leather jackets and plaid sets.
House Of Sunny is the epitome of a stylish and non-basic slow fashion label. From green jumpsuits to cheetah print graphic tees, HOS creates elevated closet staples that add creativity to a basic outfit at very reasonable prices, but they don’t sacrifice quality or sustainability.
Shrimps, started by Hannah Weiland in 2013, was originally a faux fur outerwear label and quickly grew into handbags, clothing, and accessories. What’s more, they recently collaborated with Converse to make some veeeery cute sneakers. We’ve been seeing a lot of their handbags on some of our favorite Insta-girls, like Maria Bernad.
Les Coyotes founder Marieke Meulendijks was inspired by her love of art, photography, and architecture to start the Amsterdam-based label. Basic only in theory, their pieces are timeless wardrobe essentials that instantly upgrade any outfit.
