3 Brands you should be wearing in summer 17

If we were to map out what we’re wearing for the rest of the summer, it’s these 3 brands..

It's always a struggle to discover new brands when you’re surrounded by the same ones on the daily, but this season we’re eschewing our old faithfuls in favour of new releases and fresh new talent - think of it as a cleanse, a wardrobe one, where the only thing you really have to do is buy everything on this page, the work’s pretty much already done for you!

This season we're looking to those brands that are bringing you the best of modern casual wear, with luxe sweatpants and minimal leather sneakers high on our agenda, yet also looking to those summer pieces that will carry us through to autumn.



With the belief that shoes are the most modern means of self- expression, Axel Arigato started solely with minimalist sneakers the've quickly become known for. This season they launched a range of equally modern menswear with perfect transitional pieces for summer. The collection is a muted selection of t-shirts, hoodies and sweats to sit alongside their extensive footwear collection and we're pretty much already obsessed. Their green tailored sweatpants (pictured above) are what we'll be wearing this summer with a fresh white shirt and some Axel sneakers, naturally.

A.M.I. are known for their infamous take on laid back french style and their exclusive collection for Matches Fashion is no exception. A curated edit of the pieces that we return to the label for each season, our favourite pieces are the tailored black shorts and breton striped t-shirt, which we'll be pairing alongside black gladiator sandals for summer in the city. The minimal take on the trench is our spring to autumn go-to.

Described as a 'brand aiming to create hybrid quality wardrobe staples mixed with progressive standout pieces', this seasons offerings from CMMN SWDN are just that - simple pieces like the drawstring shorts and pants, sit alongside more statement pieces like the gold satin appliquéd jacket (which we're totally feeling for summer nights) and off-pink jumpers. Check out their website for more directional pieces that will be real standouts in your closet.
