Fall’s freshest labels are a serious temptation to the wallet. From the best button-up you'll ever own to one truly playful playsuit, here are five millennial designers and their labels, which are totally killing it this season.
Founded by San Francisco-based sisters, Marie and Karen Potesta, Micaela Greg’s staples are minimal, irresistible knits and loose-yet-sexy separates. Garments are produced in California and Fair Trade Peruvian factories and made of materials so soft you’d want to sleep in them. For fall, Micaela Greg is all about relaxed pastels, cool stripes and understated nudes. The Navy Reverse Stripe Sweater, $250, is especially binge-worthy.
Australian designer, Alice McCall, started as a stylist in London before launching her playful, girly label of dreams. SInce then, McCAll’s lacy playsuits and dreamy dresses became Instagram darlings, slowly getting on the radar of fashion bloggers and influencers. No one does ruffles, sheer panelling and feminine details quite like McCall — In The Night Black Playsuit, $340, is the perfect example of her designer chops.
This bubbly and bold brand named Rightful Owner, is the brainchild of Brooklyn designer, Caitlin Rose, whose first foray into fashion was designing creative headpieces. Now, her sexy dresses and curve-friendly skirts are favored by Jemima Kirk and Rose Williams, who adore the vibrant prints and sensual cuts; off the shoulder corsets and wrap skirts are among the seasonal favorites. The YAS Pencil Skirt, $290, is total fall winner — the print is to die for.
First Rite by designer Nikki Garcia is another San Francisco label that does urban chic like no other. Cool jumpsuits? Check. Nonchalant coats that go everywhere, from the grocer to the bar? Check. While the fall collection's colors are understated and muted, the details game is fierce — check out the Suspender Trousers in charcoal, $275, guaranteed to stand out on the most stylish of crowds.
The Frock NYC
Crisp, clean separates don’t get any better than those by The Frock NYC. Who would have thought that this fall’s sharpest silhouettes and most desirable button-ups belong to a brand that started as a ‘modest’ fashion venture? That’s right - Brooklyn-based The Frock NYC was created by two Australian Orthodox Jewish fashion designers, Simi Polonsky and Chaya Chanin, who value style just as much as they abide tradition. Their asymmetric maxi skirts are already an Instagram hit, and so is the Frock 360 Shirt, $88, a perfect office companion.
