In our ongoing collaboration with JC Report, we recently contributed two articles about some promising emerging brands, and we wanted to make sure BoF readers could learn about these talented young designers too.
The first designer came to our attention when we spotted a friend sporting the coolest cardigan. When we asked who designed it we expected to hear the names Ann Demeulemeester or Rick Owens — but instead came a name we had never hear before: Rivy Ng.
Our article for JC Report discusses Rivy’s international background and step-by-step approach to building his fashion label. This is definitely a label to watch for its discreet understated style and emphasis on quality. (Speaking of which, the New York Time has an interesting take on Bottega Veneta and discreet luxury, one of our favourite topics here on the Business of Fashion).
We also profiled London’s most promising young menswear designer,Jsen Wintle, someone who has graced the pages of the Business of Fashion in the past for his luxurious menswear, with a Savile Row touch.
Jsen also happens to be an interior designer with a unusually clear brand concept and vision, especially for someone so early in their career. If you’re in London and you’d like to experience a space with Jsen’s handwriting, check out the Silver Room at Hush in Mayfair.
