NUAJE NUAJE
Los Angeles designer NUAJE NUAJE is aptly named after the French word for ‘cloud’ which captures the floaty shape of the collections’ romantic pieces. Founder Elsa long works with family run factories to create understated ready-to-wear from natural fibers, such as silk, linen and cotton. Transcending the beach to the city, the label’s neutral-toned shirts, maxi skirts and dresses can be layered when the weather cools, looking just as good on a beach as at a private gallery opening.

KAREN MORRIS MILLINERY
Fusing a creative vision with artisanal craftsmanship, designer KAREN MORRIS MILLINERY’s sculptural hats are inspired by art, travel and architecture. Each piece is traditionally hand-molded around a wooden block, before being embellished with playful adornments for a contemporary spin - think lightning bolts, flowers and space elements. Make a statement in the designer’s avant-garde hats, whether a printed headband, a straw sun hat or a fascinator for the next big event. Shop all KAREN MORRIS MILLINERY here.

ROTTMAN NYC
ROTTMAN NYC is inspired by the flamboyant glamor of drag queens, the queer New York club scene in the 1980s and the Italian fashion of Milan, where founder Noah Abraham Rottman completed a life-changing exchange program. Encouraging women to look and feel confident, Rottman makes daring see-through tulle shirts and skirts decorated with sparkling glitter and faux leather, tapping the ongoing seductive runway trend.
