Ganni. Staud. Rixo. Wandler. These are all names you either know from Instagram, or will very soon. Because if you follow any amount of fashion-related accounts on the platform, you've likely noticed that these labels — with their photogenic shoes, structured bags, stand-out prints, and vintage-inspired wares — have been popping up repeatedly at fashion week and beyond.
If you really want to stay ahead of the curve, you need to keep a pulse on these labels. In an effort to continue to champion a new wave of contemporary designers, Net-A-Porter just revealed a collective of 11 fresh, exclusive capsule collections from these of-the-moment names. Called the Contemporary Collective, the offering is right in line with the trend we've been noticing in the industry; young brands taking Instagram by storm and reshaping what it means to be a designer today.
"The Contemporary Collective includes some of the key brands that are at the forefront of the buy now, wear now shift we are seeing in the industry," Net-A-Porter's retail fashion director, Lisa Aiken, tells Refinery29. "The capsules came at an ideal time for Net-A-Porter customers, because unlike most spring collections that drop in February or March, these are items are for customers who are ready to shop for what their wardrobes needs."
