I’m back…I know its been a while but hopefully now I’m back on board with the blog more.
So this post is dedicated the idea in the fashion industry of What’s Next. What trends are going to be filtering down? What are we going to be wearing in 12 months let alone 18 months? What brands will be the new “IT brand”? These are all questions that with each season that passes, we who love fashion think about. Take a look at Off-White – who knew what this brand would become let alone having their creative director take on the artistic director role at Louis Vuitton menswear.
In saying all this I wanted to touch on a few brands that I think are going to be huge and really define what we see next in terms of trends, design and brand development & hype.
There is something to be said about hats and if you know me I have loved hats since I was 8 years old. The fact that hats are becoming more mainstream make me super excited. I’m not talking baseball caps but baker boy caps, wide brim fedoras, berets & straw boaters. These hats can elevate the simplest of outfits and give you cool girl vibes.
Ruslan Baginskiy hats have been on my radar through Instagram and through the likes of Bella Hadid and Eva Chen. As soon as I could find stockists I was looking to see what I could get but found most of what I wanted was sold out. 🙁 So I’ve now added myself to the waitlist for a number of sites and can see that FarFetch have what I want available…yay!!
His prices are not cheap so might have to wait a bit especially considering these are hats but he is a traditional milliner so his artistry lies in this rather than just adding hats to an accessory line.
I’m most interested in this leather baker boy cap that has the added touch of patent.
I’m looking at these as well in cotton.
I’m so in love….
This brand has been on my radar for a year already but I was never really sold until I saw their famous Phoebe bag in person. Apparently David Jones now stocks them which is great to be able to try on. I’m head over heels for the Phoebe bag and now know the exact one I want. I blame David Jones…
There are other designs but this particular one speaks to me for some reason and being able to see it in person so I could touch and try on made it easy for me to be converted.
Other designs that are popular include the Johnny with its interesting handle and odd bucket shape.
I’ve talked about the Australian brand Poppy Lissiman before in my sunglasses post but its worth repeating how this brand is set for world domination. I love how their sunglasses are super on trend at the moment but also how they’ve branched out to bags and accessories. Way to go!!! I have one pair of sunglasses but eyeing off their cute bum bags at the moment.
Nalin Studios jewellery has not only amazing pieces but the concept to release one piece/style per month is ingenious. It creates hype and allows for every piece to be unique as it’s not everywhere at once
I absolutely adore this necklace and find that it is currently available on their website. The design is stunning as all their pieces are, but this one is unique with the face on one side and the words on the back which allows you to wear it both ways. You get 2 necklaces out of 1 which is great considering their jewellery is not exactly cheap!!!
So that is it for me. I hope you guys found it useful to see what brands are going to be up and coming over the next year. Of course this was accessories focused with limited focus on clothing. Personally with clothing I find it much harder as I tend to stick with true classics from the high street e.g. Topshop, Sportsgirl & Uniqlo. This makes it easy for me to take risks with clothing without spending big but also maintain the classics at a great price too! Win, win I say.
If you have any brands that you think are going to be the next big thing let me know in the comments below.
