It’s been a while since we’ve enjoyed the thrill of a fresh designer/high-street collaboration. But today, & Other Stories just dropped one of the most hotly anticipated collections of the year: a partnership with London- and Antwerp-based, über-cool designer A.W.A.K.E. Mode. Ask any fashion person, and they’ll sing the praises of Natalia Alaverdian’s label, which has become an insider favourite for its unique but wearable designs that instantly make any outfit look cool. Think deconstructed shirting, couture-like suits and elevated fabrics and textures. It’s been a hot ticket on the fashion week circuit since its founding in 2012 and is now a consistent best seller on Net-a-Porter.
& Other Stories
Luckily for us fashion fans, this new collection has a purse-friendlier price point, but the designs could easily have walked straight off the label’s latest runway. It may have only just launched, but our editor in chief, Hannah Almassi, managed to get a sneak preview of the collection in person before it dropped and can confirm the quality and fabrics also feel incredibly premium (something that can often go awry with designer/high-street collabs, we’ll admit).
Unsurprisingly, the collection is already flying off the shelves, so we’ve added every piece below for you to shop swiftly if you’re looking to bag yourself a piece of A.W.A.K.E. Mode’s beautiful designs for less. We're predicting the epic faux-fur coat and knitted dresses will be especially big hits. Keep scrolling to see.
