If there is one thing that the past six months has taught us, it is that fashion knows no seasons (or trends). Lockdown encouraged a lot of us to ‘shop from closets’ and do away with the excess – whether in fashion or otherwise – because really, how many new pieces of clothing does one person actually need? Whether on the runways this season or via digital storefronts, one thing is abundantly clear: seasonless fashion is here to stay. Inspired by the versatility that a well-made piece of clothing provides, AISPI brings to you an edit of five must have pieces from our repertoire of talented designers that will take you through every season and trend.

The Dazed Dress by Georgia Hardinge

WHAT

A midi dress crafted in an ultra luxurious georgette, the Dazed Dress features Hardinge’s signature pleats in a unique sunray design all over with a gathered detail on the skirt. 

WHY WE LOVE IT

With it’s unique pleating and a clever asymmetrical hemline, the Dazed Dress is perfect for women of all body types, whether you are a size 2 or 16. We also love that the fabric used for each dress is a certified recyclable polyester that recycles eight plastic bottles within its construction. The Dazed Dress is perfect to wear for everything from a Zoom meeting to an intimate festive dinner and only needs a quick change of accessories to take you through your day. 

HOW AISPI WEARS IT

We love it for layering whether under a leather jacket or over a soft tee.

Denim jackets by BYKAVYA

WHAT

Who doesn’t love a good piece of denim? BYKAVYA gives this timeless classic a stylish overhaul and customizes it for each client, for a piece that is as unique as the client themselves.

WHY WE LOVE IT

Whether as a jacket or a pair of jeans, denim is a classic that will see you through life itself. We love BYKAVYA’s take on this versatile staple; with an array of embellishments and unexpected cutwork, the pieces can be worn across genders, body types, seasons and trends.

HOW AISPI WEARS IT

Does one really need a reason to wear a (fabulous) denim jacket? Throw it over your favorite dress or wear unbuttoned with a skirt, no matter what, there is always a good time to wear denim.

Bags from 0711 TBILISI

WHAT

Childhood friends Nino Eliava and Ana Mokia joined creative forces to launch 0711 TBILISI – a handbag label loved by fashion aficionados around the world for their one-of-a-kind woven pieces in unexpected colourways.

WHY WE LOVE IT

AISPI loves an effortless conversation starter; with its signature innovative knitting juxtaposing with organic glass, plywood and plexiglass, each piece from 0711 TBILISI promises a finish unlike any other. We also love that it’s not restricted by seasons or occasions, AISPI clients have been known to pair it with everything from formal evening wear to a casual day dress.

HOW AISPI WEARS IT

While there are countless ways to carry a 0711 TBILISI piece, we love to keep the focus on the bag and wear it with a simple white shirt and a pair of jeans.

Also see: Couture clutches from Rosantica and L’alingi, elevated bags by Digerolamo and Nita Suri and vegan leather bags from Mashu.

Mesh tops from CONFLICT OF EGO

WHAT

Every piece from designer Alanna Wain of Conflict of Ego is reminiscent of a socio-economic movement close to her heart. Her clothing is designed to empower the wearer and make a statement and her mesh tops definitely check all the boxes. They are crafted in a butter soft Italian mesh and cut close to the body, with a print that only upon close inspection reveals the brand logo swirling over in a repeat pattern.

WHY WE LOVE IT

From formal pants to your favorite skirt, there are truly so many ways to wear a Conflict of Ego piece. The superior quality Italian mesh fabric ensures that the stretch remains intact for years to come while the cut and fit accentuate all the parts of your body that you love. We also love the statement print and the many ways it enables a viewer to engage with the outfit. 

HOW AISPI WEARS IT

We love the versatility of a great bodysuit and wear ours with everything – with jeans, skirts or even layered under a dress!

Gold jewellery from Maramz

WHAT

Spanish designer Maramz takes inspiration from the architectural elements of modern day Europe for a line of luxury jewellery that is as sleek and stylish as you can imagine!

WHY WE LOVE IT

Whether for a casual brunch or an evening do, there are so many ways to wear a well made piece of jewellery! Maramz crafts her on a stainless steel base with a 18K gold plating that ensures that every piece is high on durability as it is on style. Maramz isn’t one to follow popular trends and describes her jewellery as sculpture that has been reimagined into a piece of jewellery.

HOW AISPI WEARS IT

While the design and make of every single Maramz piece allows it to be worn for every single occasion imaginable, we love to pair ours with the Dazed Dress from Georgia Hardinge.

Along with bags and accessories, sunglasses and scarves rank high among pieces that can be styled with a variety of outfits. AISPI loves eyewear brands Timeshades, ABF and Wire Sunglasses for their ability to elevate any look along with scarves by Monoselda. As we make the shift to producing and consuming fashion in a more mindful manner, versatile outfits and accessories will continue to be favoured by consumers in the days to come.
