Inspired by the "designers you discovered that are now huge" thread, I'd like to know if there are some new designers that deserve to be followed and bought.
I'm quite new to designer dresses, and until now I've only bought from the old names (Gucci, Moschino, Valentino, etc..)
Anyone to recommend?
I'm mostly looking for clothes that aim to be classic but with the wow factor - classic but not boring, KWIM?

Dean & Dan they are a pair of twins out of Italy originally from TO.

Great quality construction with an edge. They also have a diffusion line D Squared. Great quality knits and tailoring all with a great vibe. Think D&G but younger.

Gianni Chiarini has some stunning leather bags and so does Zanellato, the latter has a Furba line and a Postina line, and recently launched a new line called Nina.

She's not really new but her designs were used as "eleanor waldorf designs" on Gossip Girl. Shes under the radar but I love her concepts.

Also not new, but Marco de Vincenzo is a name to watch - LVMH just invested in his brand/company
