dollkiller

Fashion label Dollkiller from Berlin has a flattering and fashion-forward collection this season.  Cool and urban, sometimes experimental, sometimes basics, sometimes in-between, everything is handmade by the designer.  You sew girl!  The collection is available via both Dawanda and Big Cartel.

Bonny und Ried is a collection from independent Berlin designer Maren Lass.  The whole range follows a bright and breezy nautical theme reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic and comes in plastic-free packaging!  Buy on Dawanda, or read more about it on the Bonny und Ried website.

nina fuehrer

I found Nina Fuehrer a few years ago at a small designer pop-up shop, where I bought one of her knitted fishes to give as a gift and never gave it away!  So I was happy to see that she’s still designing and that her talents have spread beyond accessories and into clothing.  You can place an order through her site – it’s all in German, but you’ll figure it out if you really want one of those gorgeous denim dresses or cute mohair pussycat bags!

uloni

Uloni is grapic designer Lana Bragina’s Etsy store where she sells her gorgeous, free-form crochet jewellry.  Her style is very designer organic, and you can imagine each piece growing naturally from her crochet hook.  Each piece is a one-of-a-kind.

She also co-hosts We Swap, a web community for artists, crafters and makers to swap products with each other.

thokkthokk

The only thing that is better than ThokkThokk’s graphic bold prints is the long list of karma points this brand is accumulating.  100% organic cotton, 100% fair trade, sweatshop free, waterbased inks…  what more can we ask for?  Oh, did I mention that no one will be able to tell you’re a hippy when you’re wearing these tees?  Buy online from their Dawanda store, or their own online shop.  You can read all about them and their long list of credentials on the ThokkThokk website.

wellery je

Look what I found on Dawanda!  Young designer wellery Je (geddit, Je-wellery?) makes, among other things, delicious rings in artful, playful styles.  They’re made with white enamel – the kind used on metal camping cups and plates – and have either a bleeding edge of colour or a textile stitched feature.  You can even change the colour of the thread yourself if you’re handy like that.

el moco

Limited edition super graphic design printed on tshirts, dresses, skirts and accessories in their Dawanda store and their Etsy store.  How can I describe their unique style?  Modern surrealism infused with mad doodles and street art style?  Just go have a look for yourself already.
