Founded by Mira Mikati in 2014, owner of luxury fashion boutique PLUM CONCEPT, MIRA MIKATI grew organically out of a capsule collection for French heritage brand FacconablE (BOF 2016).
Collections are fun, exciting, colourful, and cool! Pieces speak with attitude, humour and wit. Pieces from past collections have been seen on Beyoncé, Caroline De Maigret and Caroline Issa 😍
Mira Mikati uniquely combines fun, emoji-style detailing with elegant, grown-up silhouettes.
Vetements was the talk of the town after Paris Fashion Week. Headed up by Demna Gvasalia, Vetements is a fledgling Parisian label which operates as a design collective. (Matches 2016).
It’s denim jeans were the item of this fashion season, seen in numerous street style shots👖. Vetements create clothes which you actually want to wear, which is that common amongst fashion week brands.
What is most exciting and futuristic about Vetements is that they announced last month that from January next year they will show their mens and womenswear together! The definition of gender, and the distinction between menswear and womenswear is changing. Gender is no longer relevant, or as relevant that it once was. We all hope for a boyfriend just to steal his jumpers, and seeing a man in skirt is no big deal 🙌. It’s very exciting to see a brand that has so much attention at the moment moving in the direction and shows that it’s likely more and more gender neutral brands come into the limelight 👏
Founded in 2009, ECOALF is one of the few sustainable brands where every single one of their products is made from entirely recycled materials.
“Discarded fishing nets, post consumer plastic bottles, worn-out tires, post-industrial cotton, and even used coffee grinds become outerwear, swimsuits, sneakers and accessories”.
It’s refreshing to see a brand push the boundaries within sustainable fashion, and create garments that encompass the meaning of sustainability. Their website is a source of knowledge and highlights the issue of rubbish and pollution within the fashion industry, but also our daily input. 🚨
