It’s no secret that England is home to a lot of great things and the country’s designers and makeup artists are no exception.

A creative nation with a storied history rich in fabric factories that have exported some of the finest fabrics around the world, it is the birthplace of iconic designs like the Macintosh and miniskirt, and home to some of the best tailors in the industry. In recent years, many eclectic designers have sprung up who combine the teachings of the past with an evocative modern flare.

Of course, when you first think of British designers, giants like Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney may come to mind, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a number of smaller brands that are fueling the fashion agenda.

Specializing in everything from work wear to party wear to everyday wear, this British born label makes clothes that push boundaries for minimalism and maximalism that are stylish, wearable and most importantly, designed to last.

From Rixo to Kepler and Rejino Pyo, below we’ve rounded up our favorite British fashion labels to watch out for this season and beyond.

KEPLER SHOP

Launched in 2016, Alexandra Hadjikyriacou and Jaimee Mckenna’s cult label, Kepler, focuses on knitting as a medium and each piece is handcrafted. A little grunge, a little sexy, the beauty lies in the construction and contours of the clothes once worn by the likes of Billie Eilish and Kim Kardashian.
