Thread: New British/European avant garde designers

    Default New British/European avant garde designers

    Hey,

    So has anyone seen any up and coming British or European avant garde brands that they like the look of? I'm interested to see what's coming up next.

    Who's getting your creative juices going and why?

    No one. Unless you count Craig Green, but I don't think he's up and coming anymore - depends on your point of view. I look at Charles Jeffrey, Wales Bonner, Martine Serre, Namacheko, Kiko Kostadinov, etc. and I just don't get what people see in them. But I am (almost) always open to changing my opinion. I certainly don't want to come off as if I don't like anything new...

    Which ones do you like?

    I like Wales Bonner and think she's evolved with every season.
    Yet I don't own any piece of her and don't know about the quality.

    Seeing the latest collection of Cottweiler (https://www.businessoffashion.com/ar...-goes-cruising) I also think that they've the potential to bring their tailoring+sportwear approach to another level.

    I'm a Paul Harnden fan personally, but looking for something new.

    Although I agree with you, I'm not 100% sure I'd consider her avant-garde per se. I think a lot of her garments look like they'd take the luxe-tailoring approach if anything.

    I just started following the dude John Skelton on IG. Pulls heavily from period clothing, makes his own fabrics and has just enough eccentricity to keep it interesting and unique.

    Also Melitta Baumeister was picked up by DSM a while back. I like her clean, techy and over sized take on things. She also is a minimalist which is close to my heart.

    I like Skelton a lot; especially, the recent collab he did with Oliver McConnie. In that same vein, there's JM Ribot; who I also like.

    Honestly, I don't know much about the UK or Euro scene. I follow a small group or individual from China and Japan. There's a real push for a GBS, Dawson, Harnden, and the like clothing: handmade, imperfect, hand-dyed with local dyes, very raw material. I've always been a sucker for that and I love it to all death.
