Bursting with amour (aka sheer and utter LOVE) for everything AMUR, there was no doubt that it would be the brand to revive Foreign Flaunt. Based in our most fave city, New York, AMUR stands for something. A brand that gives a damn. Creative director, Sofia Shannon, created AMUR in 2017 with the notion that “Nature is the ultimate luxury.” Having great (or in AMUR’s case, FABULOUS) style need not come at the expense of the environment. A Mindful Use of Resources, the designs and material oscillate between sheer creativity and responsible use of the environment. Not only are the…

When we discover brands like Zimmermann, we have to remind ourselves just how utterly and completely lucky we are to have the internet. Born in sunny Sydney, Nicky and Simone Zimmermann prove that sisterly love both fuels and balances. Flattering, feminine and stylish, Zimmermann began with swimwear and slowly fused it with ready to wear fashion. The result was a collision of print, color and shapes that take unique form season after season. Explore-on, mann: https://us.zimmermannwear.com/ Photo credit: Zimmermann

There’s something exquisite and delightful about discovering fall fashion that cocktails rich hues, sharp pleats, feminine fabrics and the right balance of show/no-show skin, and Johanna Ortiz has clearly nailed her fashion recipe. Colombian-born Ortiz began her fashion atelier in swim and beachwear design, and transitioned into prêt-à-porter over 12 years, a transition that so obviously personifies the saying “good things take time.” Inspired by women who are sophisticated, strong and very romantic, Johanna Ortiz is our fashion soulmate this season.

With political patriotism bursting at the seams, it’s no wonder that the Ukraine unveils it’s history, culture and trends in a unique fashion – not to be known as Little Russia, but as it’s own strong statement. With this constant questioning and pursuit of identity, the studio of Ksenia Schnaider constantly asks “Why?” and “For What Reason?” before incorporating any element into a design. Urging people to express their personal beliefs, the pieces represent utility, history and cultural codes that are unique to their origins. Specific to their current collection, Ksenia Marchenko and Anton Schnaider were conscious of the perception…

Athens-born Mary Katrantzou need not sign her name on her clothing collections – they speak for themselves. With an identifiable, McQueen-esque aesthetic, the clothing pieces are icons for luxury and design. Taking inspiration from art that “a woman would not be able to wear if it were real” the idea of wearing a perfume bottle has never been more appealing! Print and design collide in this inanimate, wearable world. The prints are digital, allowing a sense of fine art and precision to shine through. And, I’m not the only one to see such beauty in the inanimate – Mary has…
