Whether you’re a true fashionista or just in need of a wardrobe makeover, we’ve got a plethora of new brands and collections to choose from.
Here’s a quick low-down of all the key designers you need to know this coming season and a little sneak preview of the stand-out pieces you’re guaranteed to love…
Baum & Pferdgarten
Formed in Copenhagen in 1999 by creative director duo Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave, the Danish fashion house Baum und Pferdgarten has become internationally recognised for its creative, coveted collections. With a knack for combining beautiful mixes of materials and bold prints and colours, a Baum und Pferdgarten dress is a must for forward-thinking, fashionable women who enjoy clothing that is as versatile as it is fun and expressive. Styled in one of this seasons hottest colour combinations, blue & yellow, the ‘golden blue check’ pieces are a must-have for any trend led fashionista.
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand
Founded in 2000, Golden Goose footwear is the collaboration of two Venetian designers, Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo. Merged together, their creative talents have produced a whole host of innovative, artisanal products which feature in the brand’s flagship stores in New York, London, Paris, Milan and Tokyo to name but a few. You can expect to see the brand’s highly coveted sneakers among our collection as well as a selection of edgy trousers, tops and dresses. Look out for the Superstar sneakers in silver glitter as well as the shocking highlighter pink Slide hi-tops.
Bali based designer Innika Choo has been passionate about clothes from a young age, creating and adapting her own garments since she was 12. What originally started as a few key pieces to showcase on her personal Instagram account has now evolved into a stunning collection of hand-smocked tops and dresses coveted by fashion editors across the globe. Styled in easy to wear smock shapes that are perfect for warm weather, this collection is what boho dreams are made of. If you’re new to bohemian style, dip your toes in the water with the Oliver Daily smock top that looks fabulous paired with anything from jeans to wide leg trousers.
Nannacay when translated means “brotherhood of women”, a fitting title for this forward-thinking, feminine accessories brand. Employing traditional craftsmanship and skills learnt during a trip to the Massai tribe in Africa, designer Marcia Kemp takes inspiration from both her own continent of South America and Africa itself to create her Nannacay bags, bold and colourful in design as well as socially rewarding, thanks to the ‘Creative Hands Transforming Lives’ fashion project. Browse here at Stanwells for a range of funky pom pom bags that celebrate a rich cultural history, tribal roots and eye-catching, colour-filled designs and shapes.
Well, that’s enough excitement for this week. Stay tuned for part 2 of our ‘New Brands’ summary coming next week; with collections from Stine Goya, Nanushka and Veronica Beard to name a few.
