School is officially in session: Meet Net-a-Porter’s new Vanguard designers. Every season, the e-commerce giant’s buying team handpicks a number of emerging designers, offering mentorship in brand development and a platform to sell their wares.
It’s been a year since the incubator program first launched, and for the fall, Net-a-Porter is adding a few more names to the Vanguard’s roster: BITE Studios, a sustainable, luxury ready-to-wear line; Le 17 Septembre, a Seoul-based label with a focus on whimsical basics; and The Sant and Naturae Sacra, two handbag labels that turn minimalism on its head. In a move that’s truly a sign of the times, each of the new brands were scouted via Instagram for inclusion into the program.
If you’re ready to add some new names into your closet, the Vanguard is undoubtedly a good place to start. You can shop the full collections in a curated space on Net-a-Porter’s site, but we’ve gathered a few of our favorites below. Scroll down to shop them all.
