It’s where minimalism and maximalism merge in the most dazzling demeanor.. It’s when certain designs and pieces reside infinitely in your wardrobe in the most elegant and timeless manner.. That’s what we refer to as being inspirational.. The impeccable blend of paradoxes, paired with immaculate silhouettes and last but not least the divine mastery of chosen fabrics.. We might not be able to own such pieces, that’s the case for many, however, as we dig for fashionably acclaimed clothes something in the back of our minds unknowingly leads us to the winning designs, cuts and fabrics.. CIIN presents 6 brands to be inspired by, a foolproof list of designers that will upgrade your definition of style..
1 || Richard Quinn
When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth || personally attends the Richard Quinn Fall runway, and offers this London-based designer the Award for British Design, a lot can be told about this flourishing designer.. With state-of-the-art technology used in his print development studio to create the brand’s exuberant, acid-hued patterns, Richard Quinn undoubtedly tops our list of inspirational brands..
2 || Rasario
Talk about the dress that guarantees to turn heads the minute you walk into a room and we can probably guess it’s Rosario.. RASARIO founder Rasida Lakoba cites the women of her native Russia as the main source of inspiration behind her distinctly glamorous cocktail dresses and gowns. A brand loved by equally inspirational women, rosario was spotted on the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Lily Collins.
3 || Dundas
Inspired by Peter Dundas and Evangelo Bousis’s travels and the glamorous, jet-setting women in their inner circle, Dundas came to life, not long after Peter Dundas sat at the helm of Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci and Emanuel Ungaro.. Debuting his first designs with three custom-made looks for Beyoncé at the 2017 Grammy Awards is enough said..
4 || Area
Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Pansczczyk launched AREA in 2014 as design students at Parsons after bonding over a mutual love of ’80s glamour and feminine silhouettes. Named after the pioneering New York nightclub of the same name, the label’s irreverent designs and high-octane embellishments have garnered a diverse fanbase that includes Kendall Jenner and Michelle Obama.
5 || Y/Project
Since the appointment of Glenn Martens as Creative Director of Y/PROJECT in 2013, the Paris-based label has combined conceptual and inventive detailing with playful proportions and a witty take on historical references. At the core of Y/PROJECT, Martens established an emphasis on individuality and independence. Fusing the energy of the street with thought-provoking silhouettes, his unique take on interpreting masculinity and femininity blends eccentric references with unisex looks that transcend versatility.
