Seeking cult designs with serious style mileage? We’ve scoured our latest arrivals to round up this season’s most popular picks. These are the trending styles that deserve a place in your closet – but be quick!

THE LINEN PLAYSUIT

As the name suggests, Rivet Utility excels at fuss-free pieces that work. This versatile white linen playsuit is a sleek example – made consciously in LA, its relaxed silhouette looks effortless with slides or sneakers. Add a basket bag and sunglasses for instant summer style.

THE STRIPED SUNDRESS

Easy, breezy sundresses are a closet staple when the mercury rises, and Australian brand Zimmermann is a master of the whimsical silhouette. This tiered, striped cotton design is part of an exclusive capsule collection for NET SUSTAIN – wear with leather sandals and gold jewelry to elevate the everyday.

THE BOLD BIKINI

Hunza G’s colorful seersucker swimwear – an icon of the ’80s, revived for today – has a cult following for good reason: the vacation styles perfectly balance style, comfort and sculpting cuts. This bandeau bikini arrives in SS22’s favorite orange, or ‘Mango Sorbet’, with an elegant tortoiseshell resin buckle.

THE COLORFUL JEWELRY

Beautifully cut rainbow sapphires and an emerald are set in gold for this statement-ring design, part of New York-based designer Brent Neale’s Petal collection. An eye-catching addition to your jewelry box, this playful piece will bring a touch of color to warm-weather whites.

THE CULT BAG

Trust JW Anderson to deliver yet another iconic bag design. The sculptural silhouette of the ‘Knot’ tote is created by strips of smooth leather with oversized polished hardware. The structured style is a sleek way to carry essentials, and the neutral beige tone is the perfect partner for a bold palette.

THE SLEEK SUNGLASSES

Based between Australia, LA and Paris, sunglasses brand Velvet Canyon delivers styles that perfectly blend classic with contemporary. Designs are inspired by the ’60s and ’70s and crafted from ethically sourced materials. This tortoiseshell ‘Velvetines’ pair features a cat-eye silhouette that evokes vintage Hollywood glamour.

THE CHUNKY SANDALS

Under Gucci’s masterful touch, the chunky sandal is reimagined in off-white rubber. This ‘Isla’ iteration is a minimal riff on styles that are key for SS22 – note the clean lines, oversized buckles and track sole. Wear them with tailored separates or this season’s favorite bleached-out denim.

THE RETRO TRACK JACKET

Fusing Adidas Originals’ sports history with Wales Bonner’s high-fashion credentials, this track jacket is a contemporary spin on ’70s styles – note the mustard, tonal brown and cream palette. Wear with the coordinating pants, or let it add vintage cool to your favorite denim.

THE DENIM SNEAKERS

Inspired by retro designs, Loewe’s ‘Flow’ sneakers have been recrafted in multiple colors and fabrications. The latest addition to the cult collection is cast in denim, with the brand’s signature ‘Anagram’ logo stitched with a raw edge. They’ll lend a sporty note to summer dresses.

THE SUN-READY MAKEUP

Natural makeup that looks good and lasts in the sun has always been tricky to get right, so when makeup artist Kirsten Weis, founder of Kjaer Weis, launched her gluten-free, certified-organic cosmetics line in slick packaging, not only was it beautiful, but sustainable and practical, too. Refill with Kajer Weis The Cheek Collective cream blush palette in ‘Happy’ – just use the warmth of your fingers to pat it into cheekbones and under the brow for the prettiest of skin finishes.
