Looking to expand your style repertoire this year? Then get the lowdown on the five need-to-know labels that'll kick off your 2017


Simon Miller Bonsai bag

Claim to fame: The bucket bag 2.0, a pint-sized architectural rendition that's the sleeker younger sister of 2016's reigning silhouette.
What you need to know: Starting out as a men's denim label that forayed into womenswear and accessories in 2014, Simon Miller's Daniel Corrigan and Chelsea Hansford may be based in Los Angeles, but the duo have left their hearts in Japan — cultivating a manufacture that's steeped in the unparalleled fabrication of the East Asian country. 
What you can't go wrong with: Bonsai, their wait-listed bucket bag that's proven to be ideal for both day and night crusades all in one.

A-Cold-Wall streetwear

Claim to fame: Transforming the glaringly ordinary into head-turning sports-inspired streetwear, mined from the subcultures and grit of Britain's streets.
What you need to know: Conceived by Virgil Abloh's ex-assistant Samuel Ross two years ago, A-Cold-Wall* is beholden to first and foremost creativity, with numbers taking the back seat. Here's what we love: Ditching threads that are achingly pristine, Ross' trademark lies in peddling pieces that are 'stained' and worn-in. 
What you can't go wrong with: The pre-broken-in science-inspired hoodies. A literal take on experimental fashion.

Dorateymur shoes

Claim to fame: Those high-cut heeled booties that have come to adorn every fashion insider's feet. Glossy, glam, and the go-to for an instant tenner.
What you need to know: From the sketchbooks of Turkish designer Dora Teymur who designs with a '60s air stewardess in mind. The result? A geek-chic slash tomboy aesthetic that's taken flight with It-girls Susie Bubble and Alexa Chung. 
What you can't go wrong with: The Double Delta boots and Turbojet heels that's a one-way ticket into the fashion spotlight.

What you need to know: Fresh off the boat from the recent fall season, founder and creative director Catherine Holstein's crisp poplins and cozy knits come together seamlessly as a travel capsule — designed to leave the stylish wanderer ever ready and hardly wanting. 
What you can't go wrong with: A cashmere robe cardigan that's has Upper East Side sophistication inbuilt in its DNA.

Charlotte Chesnais jewellery

Claim to fame: The beauty in irregularity immortalised in cold, hard metal. 
What you need to know: From the designer behind Balenciaga's initial jewellery launch during Nicolas Ghesquière's reign, Charlotte Chesnais' personal endeavour comes after years of experience lending her creative know-how to brands the likes of Kenzo, Maiyet and Maison Kitsuné. 
What you can't go wrong with: For a stylish hit that's unexpected, mix and match two or more pieces that have been designed to come together like wire puzzles.
