The new guard at Net-A-Porter: a celebration of novel design

As one of the first places on our digital hit list we frequent when in need of statement heels, our new staple bag or the party dress to end all others, luxury online atelier Net-A-Porter has saved our sartorial lives more times than we’d like to admit. With their eyes fixed firmly on the future, Net-A-Porter announces its crop of brands that will be joining its Vanguard collection. Aiming to promote the most innovative emerging designers and brands onto the high fashion stage, the Vanguard fold offers an international commercial platform with the Net-A-Porter seal of approval.

This year it has been revealed that the Spring Summer 2019 selections for mentorship through the Vanguard program include Peter Do, Commission, Anne Manns and Ratio Et Motus; joining last season’s alumni Les Reveries, Rūh, Gu_De and Souliers Martinez.

Peter Do’s collection features exquisite tailored shirts and innovative separates, with his eponymous brand informed by the designer’s work under Phoebe Philo at Celine. Commission takes cues from youth culture and strikes the perfect balance between cool casual and smart office pieces. Anne Manns’ jewellery collection offers unique touch for any outfit; with each piece moulding to the human form in an alien yet inspired way. Ratio Et Motus is a young leather goods brand founded in 2018, with design inspiration deeply rooted in the past. Shop the Vanguard selections now at Net-A-Porter.
