Now that the fall 2013 runway shows in New York, Paris and London have officially come to a close, we have plenty to report!
And speaking of designers, we've got two major names you need to know about: Anthony Vaccarello and Ostwald Helgason.
These two talents raised considerable interest from industry insiders at their most recent runway shows—here's why:
Anthony Vaccarello: The Belgian-born designer is known for his revealing, over-the-top sexy looks favored by Jennifer Lopez, Karlie Kloss, Anja Rubick and more, but this season he showed much more sophisticated silhouettes with understated edge (à la Alexander Wang.) His runway collection included contemporary outerwear, wearable knits and plenty of leather.
Ostwald Helgason: London-based design duo Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason stirred up quite a buzz at London Fashion Week this year thanks to charming, quirky looks (playful patterns, eye-catching frocks, funky brocade culottes and more) in vibrant colors, that were unlike anything we've seen before.
Solange Knowles, Rihanna, Chloë Sevigny and plenty of other street bloggers like Susie Bubble and Leandra Medine are already fans of the relatively new label.
