The pace of summer is getting faster and faster. In the twinkling of an eye, it is the end of August. Your wardrobe should be updated! How many brands of clothes do you always buy? Before summer sales is over, it’s time to try something new!
The following six niche fashion brands can not only let you catch the tail of summer, but also start with your favorite items at the most lovely price, so that this summer has a perfect end and embraces the coming autumn.
01 All Saints
British nostalgia and low-key punk Romanticism
When we talk about All Saints, people who are fascinated about leather jacket might know that this brand is called “sewing machine”.Because of the mottled and decadent industrial design style in the store, the sewing machine has become the most prominent identification for the brand.
The first time I knew all saints was in Hong Kong. There were a lot of sewing machine decorations in the shop and on the large screen outside. Later, I went to the UK to study and had a deeper understanding of all saints. Although this new fashion brand from London is called the cheap Vivienne Westwood by many avant-garde fashion lovers, I think there is a clear difference between the two brands.
All saints was founded in October 1994 by Stuart Trevor, a British menswear designer, and his wife, Kait Bolongaro who is an entrepreneur. The brand name was originally intended to be named “the saint” under the nickname “ST”.
In the summer before the establishment of the brand, they attended a Carnival Party on All Saints Road in Nottinghill, London. Inspired by the environment, they decided to name the brand “All Saints”.
Music and art have always been the core of All saints. From the promotion of image films to the opening of stores, brands will cooperate with different musicians and artists. All saints holds LA Sessions from time to time in the studio in Los Angeles. The Sessions music project has cooperated with different musicians, and has also found graffiti artists to complete their works on classic leather clothes. The brand has developed in the spirit of East London, where music, creativity and art are flourishing.
In fact, the cultural axis design method can be attributed to the successor creative director Wil Beedle. Compared with the creative director of general fashion brands, he has a profound background in fashion courses. In fact, Wil Beedle graduated from Cambridge literature department and went to Paris to study visual art and painting after graduation. That’s why you won’t see too complicated design in the design, but you can definitely see the story of brand’s research on music, art and other cultures in details.
Back to the brand design itself, exquisite printing and grinding and other hand-made processing make All saints’ clothing with a decadence rock style, but also full of nostalgic and low-key romanticism. It seems to recall the gentry feelings of Great Britain and pay homage to the modern punk rock art.
Besides, leather clothes, the most important part of All saints, are not only the changes in the leather, but also make the upper body more attractive. From the classic neutral Balfern without waist down to the short version of Papin and other styles, they reflect the diversified version and different waist design, so that they can conform to different body shapes.
Also brilliant are accessories and bags, excellent old-fashioned effect and bohemian style, the brand’s unique energy burst out.
Its style is relatively stable, so the basic style is a must-have item. It is suggested that leather coat is really worth starting with, followed by skirt and accessories bag. Secretly, the discount of summer sales is as low as 40% now. Don’t hesitate to start your favorite item!
Exquisite elegance from England
Compared with All Saints, Whistles,which is a British brand,will be more bright and should have been promoted to the heart of many people. At the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, Kate wore whistles skirt, which made her famous.
Founded in London in 1976 by Lucille and Richard Lewin, whistles is now part of oasis, a British clothing brand. After Jane Shepherdson, a former Topshop director, was appointed CEO in 2008, she changed the style of history to make the outline more concise and the color more exquisite.
The design is distinctive and characteristic, not to say much chic, but elegant and tasteful. It pays special attention to the details of hand embroidery and nail beads, which is exquisite and exquisite, and is committed to creating effortless fashion. When it comes to the most utilized clothes in the wardrobe, they must belong to this brand.
Simple and exquisite casual wear, suits with various silhouettes, and skilfully tailored skirts, each type exudes a charming temperament, which can be satisfied in this brand, whether in the street, in the restaurant, in the activities or in Po meizhao.
Whistles is also experimenting with the design of wedding dresses and bridesmaid gowns. The price is very simple and elegant, which is suitable for tall and slim girls.
In terms of accessories, I don’t really recommend it. The overall design is relatively ordinary, and there is no particularly eye-catching performance, but the clothing is still very good. We should seize the opportunity of discount now
03 Marc Le Bihan
Cool and low-key French dark pioneer
Maybe someone will see a question mark in their brain when they see the brand name, but believe me, the design of this brand will never let people down. Marc Le Bihan is a low-key French avant-garde brand. Its clothing texture and lookbook style are mainly in dark color. Look has a strong industrial style as the background.
It can bring you different delicacy and elegance, as well as a bit of charm. It is bright and decadent. The elegant and exquisite outline is woven by light Chiffon yarn, cotton cloth and silk, which is cold and aesthetic.
Marc Le Bihan is good at shaping the texture and shape of clothing with different materials. The gauze skirt can be complex and multi-layer, and can also be single-layer exquisite carving and hollowing out. She is good at selecting colors close to black or white, and innovating various series by using traditional dyeing technology.
Pure handmade, the raw materials used are very exquisite, the principle of handicraft is always to adhere to. It is very in line with the Oriental aesthetic. Many styles of self-cultivation can show women’s soft or neutral side, but avant-garde is not too flashy. It can be used in many occasions, but it can also attract eyes crazily.
Designer Marc Le Bihan’s study of clothing began in his youth. In his early days, he did textile work in the famous Gobelins workshop in Paris. His working experience and learning during that period made Marc Le Bihan form a very good taste of handcraft.
At the same time, influenced by famous designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, REI Kawakubo, Martin Margiela, Joseph Beuys and other well-known designers, he has gradually become a designer with strict personality and is committed to creating fashion classics that will not fade with time.
04 3.1 Phillip Lim
Chill cool and fashionable Chinese designer brand
Phillip Lim Lin Neng Ping is a model of Chinese American designers. After Jimmy Choo and Vera Wang, he is another Chinese American designer who is popular in Europe and America. The American Fashion Designers Association presented him with the emerging talent in Womenswear women’s fashion design award in 2007. 3.1 Phillip Lim is a brand he set up in 2005, which is very distinctive and simple.
Vogue describes it as “pretty but cool” and “don’t try too hard”.
I began to know that this brand was attracted by the design of the show when I sorted out the slender features of various brands in a fashion week. Later, it was learned that 3.1 Phillip Lim is famous for its neat tailoring, slim fitting effect and gorgeous details. Classic clothes such as slim pants and high waist cocoon shaped small dress are also popular among stars.
In addition to these impeccable fashion design, the bag is also attractive to me. No matter from the color, fabric or style, it gives people a bright feeling. Each style seems to be suitable for various occasions, as if there is a magic that must have such an item.

Chitose Abe is a close disciple of Rei Kawakubo of Kawakubo. He was engaged in layout cutting at CDG. Later, he joined Junya watanbe’s design team. Under the influence of his ears and eyes, Chitose Abe’s design style was also deeply influenced.

06 LOW CLASSIC
Korean fashion brand full of femininity
Low class is a local fashion brand in South Korea. It was founded in 2009 by Lee Myeong sin, Hwang Hyun Ji and Park Jin Sun, three female designers who graduated from Seoul Jianguo University. Its style and aesthetic fit Asian people. In recent years, it has attracted more and more public attention and is loved by Korean stars and fashion people. It also often appears in Korean dramas.
Its design style is fashionable and simple, which brings fun through tailoring details and embellishment colors. Designers like to emphasize the visual effect by using printing patterns and other elements on the basis of black and white two-color, giving people a simple and not boring feeling, creating a low-key and unique personality fashion.
The reason why low class has always been popular with young people is that its clean cutting combines with street sports culture. The style of clothes is very casual, and there is a sense of design, so people don’t think the clothes are cheap.
Lazy knitted fabric into a gentle color, the style of a little more ladies can choose to try, but all knitwear can make people more feminine.
The new leather collection bag is chic style. I think the shape and color of these bags are very good. The unique color makes the identification higher. There is no unnecessary decoration, and it is more clean and versatile.
In the past, low class has always faced the public with high street leisure style. Nowadays, its style is more mature and the workplace is closer. The audience has increased from young trendy people to mature women.
However, there are many negative voices about this style change. Low class is also known as “Korea Celine”. I think there are different opinions on this. There is no need for the general public to blindly pursue luxury goods and lose their rationality. After all, fashion is constantly updated, and the most important thing is to be suitable for themselves.
To tell you the truth, I still like the high fashion style after the transformation of low class. The femininity is increasing and the behavior is a pictorial.
It’s time for fairies who like or are growing grass to chop their hands with summer sales!! Let’s say goodbye to this summer and welcome autumn with new clothes.
