6 New Luxury Labels

There’s a slew of luxury-minded designers out there who are taking the craft of clothing to the upper echelons, while still maintaining the inventiveness of newbie indie brands. You’ve been searching high and low to find them, and now it’s time to reveal the designers who represent the new high-end. Here’s a glimpse into the future — these are the pieces your grand-kids will be vying for in your closet someday.

LuxuryLabels-Ellery

Ellery: Luxury In Workwear
Australian designer Kym Ellery has somehow figured out a way to take the most traditional, formal suiting pieces and infuse them with all the glamour of a gown. Just take a look at her resort ’15 collection, which is an imaginative assemblage of: perfectly cropped culottes; crisp, multi-layered oxfords; and structured sheaths in a palette of ivory, charcoal, and banker’s blue. Ellery: for the woman who considers that corner office her fairytale kingdom.

LuxuryLabels-ChrisGelinas

Chris Gelinas, Luxury Bespoke
There are certain moments when you know that something is going to become huge, whether it’s a designer’s game-changing use of a new stud shape, or a brand-new silhouette that’ll change the way women approach clothes for an era. Chris Gelinas’ line of clothes is filled to the brim with that sort of special. Revel in this designers sportswear-meets-couture approach, and watch as everything you think about fashion changes.

LuxuryLabels-Delpozo

Delpozo: Luxury With Whimsy
Attending a Delpozo show during Fashion Week is an interactive event — with every joyful creation that comes down the runway, there’s a chorus of reflexive gasps, titters, and declarations of love. Delpozo has taken a childlike approach to beautiful clothes, and in so doing has brought a new whimsical air.

LuxuryLabels-FaustoPuglisi

Fausto Puglisi: Luxury In Every Day
If you’ve seen Fausto’s name before, it’s because of his celebrity endorsers — he’s wooed indie darlings and style daredevils with his tropical-gone-badass silhouettes. But, where he’s really shone his strength is in turning everyday pieces — silk blouses, long-length skirts, patterned shifts, and statement coats — into ones that are just as glamorous as his red-carpet fare.

LuxuryLabels-Mugler

Mugler: Luxury, Reincarnated
The storied Thierry Mugler brand, with a new designer, David Koma at the helm of the label and the re-imagination of Mugler’s “power bitch” the collection feels more exciting than anything we’ve seen in years. Touches of theatricality (by way of sequins, origami, and design elements plucked from bondage-wear) weave through these sharply tailored separates.

In love with luxury!

Bright Beauty

Turn the vivid makeup game on its head by upgrading your creamy pastels and giving them a neon bite!

Makeup guru Janessa Paré, shows us how to work these updated neons into our beauty routine.

BrightBeauty-MagneticMint

Magnetic Mint
Mint is a bright pastel and this color pops with any eye hue. The easiest way to pull it off is with a fade-out liner. Like the ombré lip, this focuses the pigment at one point — here, the inner corner of the eye — and then gently diminishes as it extends outward.To round everything out and balance the bright green, Paré added a pinky-brown shade to the lips and cheeks.

Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner in Mint Julep, $20, available at Sephora.

BrightBeauty-ElectricLavender-1

Electric Lavender
You may be wearing a bright lip, but that doesn’t mean the rest of your makeup should fall by the wayside. “Keep the rest of the makeup warm and monochromatic”. “Add a swipe of bronzer to the cheekbones, and use a warm cream eyeshadow around the eyes.” The warm, bronze shades will neutralize your look while still adding a pop of color. “They keep your skin looking very healthy,” Paré says.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Rollergirl, $18, available at Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics; Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Eyeshadow in Satiny Warm Brown, $21, available at Make Up For Ever.

BrightBeauty-PeachSorbet

Peach Sorbet
Paré suggests prepping your lips before you apply your shade. “When doing a center pout color, it’s important to have a base or primer on the lips,” she says. “It keeps the texture on the whole lip looking healthy. Plus, the color grabs evenly.” Once the hue was in place, Paré gently blended the orange shade toward the outer corners, so the most intense pigment was in the center of the lips and then gently faded out. “You also want to fill in your brows,” she says. “It will balance this bright lip and keep you looking more polished.”

Aveda Nourish-Mint Lip Definer, $20, available at Aveda; Wilfred Massena T-Shirt, $28, available at Aritzia.

BrightBeauty-NotSoMellowYellow

Not-So-Mellow Yellow
A thick, bright wash of color is the ultimate way to conquer this trend. But, even though it appears as if there’s just one shade of yellow on the lids here, there is actually two.”Apply a cream shadow at the lashline, and fade upward with your finger,” she says. “Then, use a powder and apply it over the cream, using the same technique.” Stacking the two textures will help this makeup really pop. Be sure to apply white liner to the lower waterline with this wash of color. It will open your eyes!

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Shadow in Lemoncello, $25, available at Nordstrom; Make Up For Ever Matte Eye Shadow in Sunflower, $21, available at Make Up For Ever; Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Yeyo, $20, available at Sephora.

BrightBeauty-PMPastels

P.M. Pastels
Bright shades, like a Pepto-pink pout, can transition to nighttime. Paré used a blush similar in color to the lipstick shade, which concentrates the vivid pink hue at the center of the face. While the pink lip is bright and cheerful, it’s the subtly moody eye makeup that really takes this from sweet to sultry. Paré added an indigo shade to the inner waterline to create balance on the cheeks and lips. “Adding a rich color liner will keep the theme and make the look more dramatic and sexy,” she says. To finish, she tapped on a taupe shadow to round out the entire eye.

Armour Lip Gloss in Hello, $21, available at Armour; Aveda Petal Essence Eye Definer in Wild Indigo, $16, available at Aveda; Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow Blush in Pravella, $26, available at Nordstrom.

BrightBeauty-NeonBeige

Neon Neutrals
Yes, even neutrals, like a bright white, can be neon. But, it’s not just the intensity of color that makes this so bold — the shape of the ivory liner helps give the look a high-impact effect. Paré started by outlining the natural crease of the eye in white. Once you’ve got the shape, you can fill it in with your eyeliner. To make the white extra bright, Paré outlined the almond shape in brown. “For added dimension, apply the shadow above your ivory shape, fading into the brow,” she says. “You should also blend it to the outer one-third of the lower lashline.” The brown acts as a shadow, which contrasts the liner and helps it pop even more.

NYX Retractable Eyeliner, $4.49, available at Ulta; endless rose White Lace Net Top, $74, available at Pixie Market.

Your Bright And Beautiful!

XOXO
