5 Incredible Fashion Brands To Put On Your Radar This Year

Some new and upcoming brands to spot ahead of the curve!

Ah remember the days when loungewear was just for lounging in? When it was our go-to hangover uniform, our weekend cosies and our post-shower comfort?

Yeah, good times. Now, as we practically live in loungewear and dressing up is something many of us haven’t done since March, we’re prepping for our future new normal and looking forward to the return of some little pleasures, like outfit planning and seasonal dressing.

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we’re actually excited to start wearing jeans again – yep, 2019 us would be shooketh!

So, if you’ve also started to think about what you’re going to wear when you can leave the house again, or you just need a little pick me up to help you get you excited for future events, then cast an eye towards these new upcoming fashion brands.

From electric prints to fabulous handbags, we’re in grá with upcoming labels and these ones are set to turn heads.


Kirin officially launched in 2019. And if the patterns look familiar to you that’s because they’re designed and created by DJ Peggy Gou who launched the line last year. Not only is Peggy a talented DJ from South Korea, she’s also gained a cult following for her incredible style. Much of which contains oversized bold shirts, snazzy sunglasses and incredible co-ords.

The womenswear collection is available to shop now and if we could just learn to DJ like Gou, wouldn’t we be flying?

Our favourite piece? This faux fur jacket!
