New labels to know: Spotted at Who’s Next Paris
Cool, talented and bandbox-fresh
Cunnington & Sanderson
A love for drapes was the foundation of the partnership between Matthew Cunnington and John Sanderson, when they met at the University of Central England. Founded in 2010, the London-based label moulds fabric into figure-defying folds with pockets of volume.
Taiwanese Huang's jewellery excites with its raw handmade textures and bare delicacy. Made in London, her line often uses claw-like shapes to “reference the ephemeral nature of our experience, and our futile desire to reach out and capture it,” she says.
By mixing cultures — her Indian heritage and London’s melting-pot vibes — Parmar creates wonderfully bold jewellery. Mayan indigo meets gold leaf and wood to create scalloped crowns fit for a maharani and an armour-like body harness.
Club kids, androgyny and the traditional Hanbok dress inspire Min Kyoung Heo and Eun Young Heo’s label. Scribbled codes and louche tailoring make this Korean duo’s debut line unmissable.
Pairs in Paris
Partners Caroline Robert and Antonin Waterkeyn have the right idea about footwear: luxe kicks that are unisex and super-hip. Designed in Paris and made in Portugal, the shoes have rubber soles and come in delicious colours — some are gilded in 14k gold.
Morning Lau (Hong Kong) and Yasmine Jaber (Beirut) have used technology to create covetable fashion, like 3D figures printed on leather bags. A magnificent white owl on our It bag? Yes, please.
Friends Sasha and Stephanie are committed to simplicity and sustainability. Made from seamless vegetable tanned or recycled hide, their basket bags, carry-all totes and slim wallets are proof that less is indeed more.
