The Vanguard, NET-A-PORTER’s mentorship programme, introduces four of its latest recruits, some of them scouted from Instagram. These design talents represent fashion’s next generation of brands—youthful yet conceptually sound, digitally savvy with global appeal. Here are BAZAAR’ s picks from their fall/winter collections.
Sweater; shirt; pants, Bite Studios. Bag, The Sant. Shoes, stylist’s own
Hailing from Spain, The Sant’s minimalist handbags—delectable arm candies with geometric, structured frames and tactile handles—are an exercise in accessory innovation.
Sweater; scarf; pants, Bite Studios. Bag, Naturae Sacra
Bite Studios, a collective with ateliers based in London and Stockholm, produced a collection full of modern silhouettes and earthy neutrals, made out of the ﬁnest quality organic and recycled materials.
With a design studio in Italy and manufacturing atelier in Turkey, Naturae Sacra produces genuine calf leather handbags with handmade handles that make each piece unique.
Coat; pants, Le 17 Septembre. Bag, Naturae Sacra. Boots, stylist’s own.
LE 17 SEPTEMBRE
Based in Seoul, Le 17 Septembre’s elongated coats, pants and dresses are infused with monastic elegance and exquisite simplicity.
All The Vanguard pieces are available at NET-A-PORTER
