Baja East

Baja East is all about bright colors, bold patterns and unconventional shapes—or as designers Scott Studenberg and John Targon have described the brand, 'loose luxury.' Their vibrant pieces blur gender lines and encourage their consumer to step outside their fashion comfort zone.

Jonathan Simkhai

You would think merging sexy, elegant and ladylike all into one would be next to impossible, but Jonathan Simkhai has mastered the art. His ready-to-wear line impeccably melds sporty and tailored, with geometric patterns and skin-baring cutouts, constructed of the most flattering silk and lace you've ever had on your body. Since starting his label in 2010, Simkhai has been a nominee for the International Woolmark Prize, a member of the inaugural CFDA {Fashion Incubator} class and a co-winner of the 2015 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.

Nothing from the brand Jacquemus, designed by Simon Porte, is simple, though each piece has roots in the classics. Each season is full of layered shirting, pants with patches, and blazers with tie detailing. It's deconstructed tailoring at its best.

With off-the-shoulder tops, cascading gowns, wide-leg trousers and crop tops, Assoulin has reinvented classics in a way that has inspired the rest of the industry and that makes you want to put it on right now.

Marques ' Almeida

Marques ' Almeida may be best known for denim (think: frayed hem, wide leg, totally next-level jeans), but design duo Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida's brand goes well beyond the off-duty favorite. The beauty of their designs is in the structure and slightly asymmetric draping of nearly every piece. From elongated sleeve cuffs, to cascading ruffle dresses, and—yes—edgy denim in all shapes and styles, a single Marques ' Almeida piece will instantly transform any look. Quick change artist, indeed.

Best known for its masculine-feminine vibe, Monse is a go-to for deconstructed shirting, pajama style sets, and mini skirts and tailored trousers alike that send a strong borrowed-from-the-boys message. There is an ease in every unique silhouette—one-shoulder blouses, bubble-hem skirts—that makes each piece easy to wear, yet hard to forget. Design duo Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim may only have two seasons under their belt, but have created one of the most buzzed about brands around.

Designer Demna Gvasalia's label Vêtements is ushering in the return of cheeky casual street wear, starting with their two-in-one jeans (think cutting up two vintage pairs and sewing together the best elements of both), which were worn by a slew of street style stars this past fashion month. Vêtements is simultaneously straightforward (DHL T-shirts and logo sweats), yet unapologetically exaggerated (blazers with oversized shoulders and one-sleeved shirting).
