Before Protaganist ever showed at New York Fashion Week (its debut collection showed there less than a year ago), it was already a popular favorite with buyers. Its polished, stylish staples don’t reinvent fashion, but they certainly offer a high-quality outlook on chic pieces that are workwear friendly.
Nili Lotan works subtle luxury into her workwear-friendly collections, which have evolved beyond her early designs, like military-inspired outwear, to include travel-friendly pieces, like raw-edged tunics, tapered trousers, silk shirt dresses, and more.
Marco de Vincenzo
While he’s no newcomer to the fashion game, Marco de Vincenzo has been steadily making a name for himself, and the powers that be have paid attention. Since LVMH invested in his brand, which is currently stocked at Boutique 1, de Vincenzo has been flush with capital and brilliant design ideas that appeal to the cool girls with on-trend looks that blend the retro with the contemporary.
When it comes to claiming a wardrobe that really reflects your personal identity and style, bespoke is the way to go. Customized clothing tends to be cost prohibitive for most, but not in the case of this genius line, which offers foundational pieces and allows each shopper to customize according to hem, fabric, trim, hardware, and more.
Australia has been at the epicenter of a recent fashion movement that has seized the interest of fashion-minded individuals everywhere. Macgraw is one of the brands responsible for leading the movement, with collections that involve everything from full-lace looks to graphic tees and embroidered lace prepster dresses.
