Who: Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto
What: Clean, streamlined separates that are *exactly* Gigi and Kendall's aesthetic.

Why: The designer's Instagram, where she mainly operates for now, will make you want to move somewhere sunny so you too can wear sparkles and transparent skirts all the time.
What: An L.A. studio employing craftspeople from South Africa, eastern Namibia, and Bosnia to make colorful clothes you'll feel great about buying.

What: Drape-y, slouchy, sleepy shapes that, when worn, are even more woke than Kanye.
