Want Need Love: The Labels We’re Lusting For September

Our September wish list is lengthier than usual. This month we’re thrilled by French, Japanese, and Irish design.

dream designers

Every new season, a fresh crop of designers sets our fashion pulses racing. This season take a look at New York label Novis. Its elegantly refined cuts and pops of unexpected colour feel really fresh, while Samuel Dougal is the perfect label for you if you’re planning to buy into autumn’s big texture trend; he mixes tweeds and knits beautifully. Italian brand Brunello Cucinelli is creating the kind of informal tailoring that feels so of-the-moment right now. novisnyc.com; samueldougal.com; brunellocucinelli.com.

Give Toga a try

One collection you’ll definitely want to try this month is Japanese label Toga. Deconstructed knits are the brand’s signature. Fringed jacquard sweater; €505; Jersey sweater, €365; layered jersey top, €285; all at net-a-porter.com

COS

Each season, Cos captures the sartorial zeitgeist brilliantly (a perfect example was its unisex sneaker for SS16). Here, creative director Karin Gustafsson explains how the brand maintains its point of difference on the high street. ?The link between fashion and design has always been there for Cos, and it’s important for us to align ourselves with organisations like the Serpentine Galleries [Cos has worked with The Serpentine since 2013 on its Park Nights series]. Both worlds inspire each other in terms of colour, function, form, materials and techniques. At Cos, we love to re-invent the classics, so our AW16 collection focuses on modern, timeless and tactile designs. Key influences include Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s paintings, the 100 chairs in 100 days project by Italian designer Martino Gamper and Berlin-based artist Lev Khesin.? Add Cos’s oversized wide-leg pants to your AW wish list – chic but directional too.

SANDRO

French classicism never goes out of style, but Paris-based brand Sandro has added real fashion flair to its AW collection. These high-waisted cropped jeans embody exactly the kind of silhouette you should be embracing this autumn – a little bit street, but very sophisticated with it. Charlie shirt, €249; Rita trouser, €249; all at uk.sandro-paris.com.

?Bally

Heritage brand Bally is has pulled out all the stops for AW16 with its statement frills and oversized silhouettes. The British brand, best known for its high-quality staples, has upped its fashion credentials hugely with a collection that feels fresh and contemporary. Its textured leathers and patent finishes hit just the right note for this new season. Wool mix and angora felt top, €895; crocodile skirt; from a selection; vintage calf bag, €1,495; crocodile shoes, €7,000.

J CREW

With & Other Stories finally coming to Ireland we’re desperately hoping J Crew is next. New head designer, Somsack Sikhounmuong, has reinforced everything we love about this US high street brand in his first AW collection: vibrant colour and bold print mixed with preppy classics at jcrew.com.
