misha-nonoo-fall-2013-thumb.jpgIt’s hard to believe that designer Misha Nonoo debuted her first collection just two years ago. 

Her eponymous line, which is locally manufactured in New York’s garment district, features both exquisite tailoring and fashion forward design. Born in Bahrain, Nonoo was raised in London by an Iraqi father and English mother. Her multicultural upbringing gave her a deep appreciation for global artistry, which is evident in her collections that mix and match different silhouettes, colors and fabrics. 

Inspired by the entrepreneurialism of New York, Nonoo moved to the States for an apprenticeship and eventually launched her own line, focusing on impeccable construction and tailoring. Misha Nonoo is designed with the sophisticated urbanite in mind, a quintessentially British spirit and quirky playfulness. 

Here’s a sneak peek at the chic separates and must-have pieces the designer has in store for Fall 2013:

Patchwork was a big trend this year - but we never quite got into it. This vintage-inspired pullover dips its toes into the patchwork trend without going overboard. We love the combination of printed fabrics with classic cotton sweatshirt material. Perfect for throwing in your beach bag to stay warm after the sun goes down.

Scarves are like accessory candy for us - we’re always hunting for the latest bold prints. The newest scarf line on our radar is Ash & Anchor, which originally began as a creative studio where Philly-based designer Nina Glaser Pace sold textiles, cards and prints adorned with her patterns. In 2012 she decided to turn her nature-rich patterns into accessible, wearable art and launched a line of boho-chic accessories. The handmade collection features shapes, patterns and colors that channel the beauty found in nature, and they are made from earth-friendly materials such as water-based pigment inks and organic cotton fabric. 

Ash & Anchor scarves - $39 to $59 at
Add a splash of fun color to your outfit this summer with Cold Picnic’s pop watches. Handmade in Brooklyn by design duo Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer, they come in three eye-catching hues that contrast with a nude leather watch strap.

lunaticart-thumb.jpgWe don’t know if we’d ever take off this simple yet chic ring by Etsy shop Lunaticart. Based in Paris, the line features elegant and fashion forward jewelry often made using eco-friendly practices and materials like reclaimed silver. The designer, Berenice, started off making and selling jewelry to other backpackers and tourists wherever she went (when her career in international business hadn’t panned out to be the job of her dreams, she quit, sold everything she owned, bought a few beads and took off into the world - how cool is that?). Selling pieces in so many different countries made Berenice aware of the importance of trading, recycling and consuming locally, which is why she buys her metals from environmentally-friendly refineries and supplies from local businesses or fair trade communities whenever possible.
