With Fashion Week quickly approaching, we’re excited to examine and highlight our thoughts on the newest collection – being referred to as a capsule by many – by Nina Cuso, one of the most unique and most sought-out new designers in today’s fashion industry.
Nina Cuso is considered an edgy, youthful addition to the industry, so this collection is a very much anticipated entrance for the young designer. Her label, which launched in 2018, featured trendy and eclectic spins on blazers, hoodies, and coats that entranced those in the industry and pinned her as a designer to watch. Cuso’s Fall 2018 collaboration with Jaxon Yang is a huge indicator that her coming capsule will be something to pay attention to. Their design expertise had collided to create some classic looks with unexpected twists, we’re talking unique necklines, high slits, and lines that are aesthetically pleasing to every eye – even the modern consumer who’s not watching the runway.
Cuso is expecting to steer the buzz of her upcoming capsule toward her platform, which is focused heavily on social change and inclusiveness of all gender identities and body shapes. Her movement focuses on respect and tolerance and promotes building awareness of social issues through her designs. She’s much more than all talk – her line is inclusive of all body shapes, sizes, gender expressions, and disabilities. She offers custom clothing designs that can be tailored exclusively for any and all body types and abilities, making her a force for change in a world that sometimes feels like it’s not opening up to everyone quite as much as it should.
With that in mind, Cuso is a designer to watch as Fashion Week approaches. With the next generation focused on the morality and beliefs behind every company they buy from, Nina Cuso may be starting the next wave of designers and businesses who use their powers for good social change – and looking good while doing it.
Esteemed Maltese handbag designer Sunita Mukhi has designed a new collection of crystal clutch bags as new additions to the brand’s renowned Evil Eye range.
Featured in Grazia and Elle Italia, and also seen on modern style icon & Vogue Japan editor, Anna Dello Russo, the elaborately embellished clutch bags, named 'Alyssa' and 'Aaliyah' were both designed with red carpet events in mind.
Launched in September, the Evil Eye symbol – a sign of protection and good luck – is intricately designed on the bags and heavily encrusted in crystals. The elegant, hand-finished details make them the perfect accessory to any evening look.
London based designer Krystov Stroznya is gearing up to launch his new ‘Signature’ collection this week - a 12 piece treasure trove of dresses, skirts, jackets and tops, drawing on inspiration from his design archives. Stroznya is even trying his hand at jewellery, affordably priced from £40.
The collection features perfectly structured shift dresses in a minimal aesthetic in a vivid citrus colour palette of oranges and yellows, tinged with red creating depth of colour. Sharply tailored tops and skirts create flattering lines, accentuating the female form.
The collection’s private launch next week Wednesday in Mayfair is sure to have the fashion crowd buzzing with excitement the moment the collection hits stores.
