What’s hot for S/S17? Bazaar edits the best brands to shop online at Ounass.com this season
ELLERY Former fashion editor Kym Ellery’s eponymous label is an exploration into futuristic elegance that plays with scale, form and ﬁt to create an aesthetic that has gained her a global fashion following.
ADEAM For a contemporary brand with a sophisticated twist, look no further than Japanese label Adeam. Expect exquisite draping, asymmetric tops styled over trousers, and unusual eveningwear, for a polished take on East-meets-West.
MAGDA BUTRYM Design duo Magdalena Butrym and Aleksandra Halemba are behind Magda Butrym, the Poland-based label whose signature asymmetric sequin dresses and cold-shoulder romantic styles master feminine dressing with a fresh edge.
DION LEE NYC-based designer, Dion Lee’s architectural shapes and sharp tailoring have made him a go-to. With intricate detailing at the heart of the collections, look out for glamorous riffs on a classic tux jacket, sheer panelled dresses for evening and the perfect black pants.
GANNI Danish label GANNI’s S/S17 collection, entitled Space Cowboy, is guaranteed to add some Scandi cool to a daytime wardrobe. From maxi dresses to rufﬂ e jumpsuits, creative director Ditte Reffstrup blends past classics with new textures and on-point silhouettes, with reassuringly off-beat results.
S’UVIMOL S’uvimol’s head-turning handbags come in classic shapes and a colour pop palette. Specialising in exotics skins, expect elegant totes and shoulder bags ﬁnished in exotic python, crocodile and ostrich. Make yours unique by adding one of their accessories, from printed silk scarf handles to furry pom-poms.
MONSE Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia started luxury label Monse in 2015 and quickly developed a signature look that consists of sleek separates and eveningwear. At the heart of their identity is the classic shirt, reimagined via striking off-the-shoulder and asymmetric silhouettes, with divine results.
ROSETTA GETTY American designer Rosetta Getty’s exquisitely tailored pieces, some of which are made completely by hand, come with draped details and striking cold-shoulder silhouettes. In a grown-up colour palette, you’ll ﬁnd everything from the perfect jacket, to contemporary eveningwear.
ROBERT RODRIGUEZ There’s a Californian ease running through Los Angeles-based designer Robert Rodriguez’s latest collection, where oversized denim and utility details sit alongside ditsy ﬂorals and streetwear-inspired separates. A go-to label that is guaranteed to give your urban uniform an unexpected update.
OFF-WHITE Now somewhat of a street style sensation, Off-White launched just three years ago. Virgil Abloh is the designer behind the luxury streetwear label, whose bright, overtly sporty aesthetic is proving difﬁcult to resist. Nail the look with a pair of signature striped track pants and a statement white shirt.
GABRIELA HEARST New York-based, former model Gabriela Hearst is a hot topic after winning the coveted International Woolmark Prize earlier this year. Taking inspiration from her upbringing in Uruguay and life in NYC, Gabriela combines luxury with ease to create reﬁned tailoring and irresistible evening pieces.
TOME Tome’s S/S17 collection marks the label’s ﬁfth birthday. Created by Australian stylist Ryan Lobo and former design director at Derek Lam, Ramon Martin, their on-point tailoring, attention to textures and eye-catching rufﬂes are striking a cord with fashion insiders.
