Back during fashion month, our team went to shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, and after sifting through the best of the best, we’ve unearthed the hottest new brands that we are certain will be entering your wardrobes before summer is out.

WHO: Sandra Sandor, the designer behind Nanushka, is dedicated to creating intuitive and easy-to-wear pieces. With her ultra-cool and summery designs, this Hungarian label is the new rising star of the fashion world.
WHAT: Known for vegan leather accessories, (meaning she doesn’t use animal products), Nanushka believes that if a garment is designed to function well, it will by definition be beautiful.
WEAR: The contemporary label creates wardrobe staples that are subtly feminine and feature unexpected details.
WHO: The brainchild of Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers, Rhode offers the perfect vacation wardrobe for the modern bohemian woman.
WHAT: Kaftans, slips and effortless day dresses are cut in fluid silks and lightweight cottons and come in a fresh palette, from soft neutrals to vivid hues.

WHAT: The utilitarian and minimalistic aesthetics that defined Swedish style have evolved into something more individual and unique.
WEAR: Bridging the gap between your city and holiday wardrobes, you’ll want to sport their breezy knitted dresses or crisp cotton-poplins everywhere.
5. FAITHFULL THE BRAND
WHO: Years before ethical fashion became a buzzword, friends and founders Sarah-Jane Abrahams and Helle Them-Enger wanted to create timeless dresses that were made sustainably and were affordable. And so in 2012, the brand was born in Bali. This is the sustainable summer brand you need to know.
WHAT: Inspired by Marianne Faithfull, the brand radiates with nostalgia for the 1960s and 1970s, with vintage prints, romantic shapes and warm palettes making us want to book a flight straight to warmer climes. Fans include Lucy Williams and Olivia Lopez, plus a cool 571k Insta followers.
WEAR: Faithfull The Brand is based in Indonesia, and each piece is hand-dyed, printed and made by local artisans. The collections are rooted in the spirit of travel, and many of the patterns are inspired by fabrics collected from vintage markets all over the world. We’ve picked our favourite cover-ups and swimwear for our edit.
WHO: After spending years sourcing vintage pieces around the world for family and friends, co-founders Ohad Seroya and Aviad Klin launched Retrofête, which takes its name from a fusion of synonyms for ‘vintage’ and ‘party’. Celebrating the glamour and opulence of decades past, the collection of sleek dresses features glittering sequins, lace and ruching in voluminously draped silhouettes. Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow are among the label’s celebrity fans.
The brand derives its name from a translation of the French ‘vintage party,’ a nod to the fact that Ohad Seroya and Aviad Klin began their fashion careers sourcing great vintage looks for friends and family and then turned it into a brand.
WHAT: Embellishment, sequins, lace and ruching are the order of the day often with fun, voluminous shapes.
WEAR: It’s a brand for the girl who likes to make the entrance of all entrances.Retrofête is coming to our Dublin store this February.
7. SOLACE LONDON
WHO: With backgrounds spanning design, retail, and creative direction, long-time friends and collaborators Laura Taylor and Ryan Holliday-Stevens founded Solace London in 2013.
WHAT: As seen on Bella Hadid, this distinctly graphic collection is defined by precision-cut pants and meticulously crafted gowns that strike the perfect balance between statement and wearable.
WEAR: Modern brides and chic plus-ones take note.
