The Highsnobiety inboxes are inundated on a daily basis with new brands vying for a piece of the spotlight. So, to help you show off your vast knowledge of obscure fashion labels, each month we take a moment to introduce you to a fresh batch of upcoming talent.
Below, you’ll find some of the best collections to land in our inbox this month from handmade Australian jewelry to dope shirts to rock on the beach. Get to know this diverse array of brands before they’re all massive.
From: Melbourne, Australia
In a Nutshell: A line of contemporary, minimalist men’s and women’s jewelry, handcrafted in Australia from sterling silver 925 and solid 14k gold.
Key Pieces: Cameron Studio’s pieces are super low-key, emphasizing quality and craftsmanship over flashy detailing. Any of the brand’s timeless accessories will fit right in with your look, as you can see from the lookbook imagery above.
In a Nutshell: Former Ksubi creatives Toby Jones and Mikey Nolan have started their own so-called “beachwear” label, filled with all sorts of statement shirts.
Key Pieces: Filled with patterns, bright colors and breezy rayon fabrics, the collection has got plenty of pieces for adventurous guys (and girls!) to sink their teeth into. Whether they’re bright pink or a more modest lilac, Double Rainbouu’s shirts are an instant win for summer flexing.
From: New York
In a Nutshell: Bryce Barnes’ SS18 collection is titled “Major Feels,” and it’s a playful, cosmopolitan take on the modern wardrobe.
Key Pieces: The matching turquoise work shirt and wide-legged trousers are a serious statement combo, and the zip-up puffer vest makes for a dope layering piece.

From: Los Angeles
In a Nutshell: West Coast #grungewave-style streetwear.
Key Pieces: The checkered trucker jacket and logo’d up hoodies are a vibe, and side-stripe trousers are trending hard right now (for good reason — they look dope with pretty much anything).

wwwesh studio x Heightened Sense
