Act n°1 // Luca Lin and Galib Gassanoff founded Act n°1 in early 2016 in Italy. They hope to communicate to a piece of their own history with the designs. Playing on their multicultural background, their home, antique Chinese fine art and Azerbaijani craftsmanship, the collections are full of playful prints and embroiders, naive themes and handmade materials.
FACETASM // Japanese designer Hiromichi Ochiai is the creative talent behind the label, FACETASM. Launched in 2007, the label FACETASM takes its name from the word facet, which means various sides. FACETASM has many faces, boasting highly versatile womenswear and menswear with a distinct Japanese edge.
Magda Butrym // The luxury ready-to-wear label of Polish designer Magda Butrym exploded onto the fashion scene in 2014, achieving wide-reaching international acclaim in no time at all. Featuring handmade details such as woven textiles, plaited leathers, knitted fabrics and embroidered ornaments, all crafted by local Polish artisans, Magda Butrym pieces have resonated with sartorially savvy women for whom fashion is a means of expressing individuality and personality.
Unravel // With a background in denim and experience at Hudson Jeans and Jeremy Scott, designer Ben Taverniti launches his own label Unravel. The collection is based on staple jackets, pants and tees, using cotton, leather and destroyed denim. Designed without commercial compromise and made in Los Angeles, Unravel produces effortless, luxurious basics coveted by all.
ZIMMERMANN // Since establishing their namesake label in 1991, Sydney sisters Nicky and Simone Zimmermann have solidified Australia’s place in the sartorial zeitgeist.
