Much has been said about the yearning to return to “Old Céline,” but why dwell on the past when fashion’s future is so bright? We’re incredibly optimistic about the newest crop of buzzy designers, whether it’s whimsical Copenhagen brand Helmstedt or New York designer Peter Do. The latter will actually appeal to all those Old Céline diehards while attracting plenty of new fans, given that he trained with Phoebe Philo at the brand for two years but has a sharp point-of-view all his own.
Why is Peter Do especially exciting right now? Well, he’s nixed the traditional NYFW show in favor of making his S/S 20 collection available to preorder exclusively on Moda Operandi—and you can bet NYC girls will be clicking “add to cart” faster than you can say, Phoebe Philo. Do has designed timeless staples but with twists that make them anything but boring—scroll down to preorder the pieces and see what I mean.
