If asked to name some Swiss design labels, what would your answer be? Perhaps a prestigious watch brand, a cool and functional furniture designer or maybe you read about Akris in a fashion magazine? Let me share some exciting new names, fashion collaberations and collections I spotted at the twelth edition of Mode Suisse with you!

Ladina Steinegger
Based in Rome, Ladina Steineggers` bright, geometric designs can also be found in collections at Balenciaga, Givenchy and Lanvin. I loved her use of strong colours and print, a collection, which can seamlessly move from the catwalk into your closet.

Worn by names such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Kirsten Stewart. Yvy blurs the boundaries between traditional accessories and clothing, transforming the simplist outfit into an exquisite look. Each piece is hand made by designer Yvonne Reichmuth and her team here in Zürich.

Kévin Germanier
A wild and colourful debut collection that lit up the catwalk! Kévin Germanier studied at London`s central St Martins, focusing his studies on important fashion-forward themes such as sustainability and design responsibility. He has recently been snapped up to work for Louis Vuitton as a junior designer.

En Soie and Julian Zigerli showcased their first capsule collection “eSJZ” with a see now – buy now concept. You could even buy personal favourites after the show directly from the designers themselves. The collection, presented in pairs consisted mainly of day to day functional pieces.

Thank you Mode Suisse for having me and for supplying the photographs from the fashion show!
