Welcome to The New Guard. We’re looking at the best new designers from New York to London and back again. From the architectural beauty of Rosie Assoulin and Bellavance to Kaelen, who is designing for downtown girls everywhere, New York proved that it’s still one of the best cities for young blood. Next we headed to Australia where we found a subversive pack of young designers like Emma Mulholland, Karla Spetic and Dion Lee.
This week we find ourselves in London, where eccentricity and quiet elegance go hand-in-hand. Our fashion editor, Dixie Gong spills on who the top three emerging designers are from across the pond…
Who: Ostwald Helgason
What: Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason became the it-designers to watch when their clothes were spotted on street style regulars Miroslava Duma and Anya Ziourova during couture week last year. Their refreshing take on colour-blocking and pattern mixing have earned them high praise and a quick ascent into the international spotlight.
