Charlotte Knowles graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2017 and launched her brand working with her partner Alexandre Arsenault. Her collections recall the early 90's but she has overridden a retrospective aesthetic with incredible skill. Many garments are based on lingerie and it is through this construction which elevates her work. Incredible prints are presented in muted tones giving them longevity. The pieces present as body conscious but are open for adaption and interpretation. Click the image to view a selection from her Spring Summer 20 currently available at Ssense.
Martine Rose established her line in London in 2007 and has long been known in the industry for creating and guiding new narratives in menswear.

At the age of 19 in 2016, Vejas Kruszewski won the LVMH prize. His incredibly detailed and tailored pieces showed a new vision and a new look for essentially upscaled streetwear. It felt genius.
Vejas was then invited to take on the Creative Director role for Italian leather brand Pellemoda.
From his original home in Toronto to New York, to Italy and to his new home in Paris, Vejas is back with a new collection for Spring 2020.
He is speaking the same language - it's understated with incredible detail.
I can't wait to see more.
