The online designer retail shop Net-A-Porter is celebrating young fashion designers through a mentoring program called The Vanguard. For five years, the multi-brand reseller is helping emerging brands by mentoring them on their longterm development, as well as showcasing their pieces in the online store.
This year, the fifth edition of the Vanguard is featuring three designers, coming from different universes, executing a wide array of pieces in their collections: JiaJia and ARTCLUB, both new and exclusive to Net-A-Porter, will be joined by MINJUKIM for the brand’s second exclusive collection, after winning the Netflix ‘Next in Fashion’ competition earlier this year.
JiaJia is a fine jewellery brand based in New York, known for using uncut stones and crystals in their pieces. They let nature decide what and how we accessorise each season. ARTCLUB is an Australian fashion brand mixing minimalist cuts in a muted colour scheme. It screams modernity. And then there is MINJUKIM, semi-finalist of the LVMH prize, representing avant-guard fashion in a poetic and romantic way. This is the second exclusive collection for the eponymous Korean designer MinJu Kim in collaboration with Net-a-Porter.
This edition of the Vanguard feature this year a visual campaign highlighting the three news brands for Fall/Winter 2020. More details on the products can be found on Net-A-Porter.
