We recently attended the great Fashion Week in Riga. It's our second visit in this dynamic city and again, we were amazed by the creativity of the local designers as well as the quality of the fabrics.
As usual we offer you a review of our biggest crushes. Enjoy !

NóLó is already a well-established Latvian brand with its own signature style and philosophy. The designer of the brand is has been awarded ‘Designer of the Year’ two years in a row. NóLó is actively developing, and is proud of its broad geography and many fans all over the globe. A NóLó woman is a woman, stepping foot in foot with time and even moving ahead of it. She is extraordinary, independent, free-spirited and ‘forward’ personality in all senses of the word.
The collection, in the true spirit of NóLó, is eclectic, ironic, and a tad crazy. It offers brave and unexpected experiments with shapes, constructions and colours, and, traditionally, is a mix of masculine and feminine. Oversized items, avant-garde, asymmetry and deconstructed elements go hand in hand with “new look” silhouettes, feminine frills and circle skirts.
"One Wolf" is a high street fashion label founded in 2012 by Latvian fashion designer Agnese Narņicka. Its unisex, ready-to-wear collections blend functionality with wit, intelligence, and asceticism, portraying the designer's reflections about the savage aesthetics of a contemporary urbanite.
Experiments with constructions and silhouettes are an intrinsic proposition of the brand, thus breaking conventions of genders and clothing, while mixing up opposing details and contrary styles of classical, casual, and sporty garments.
Rebellionaires will convince both big and small individuals ! This very interesting label is a new maximalist unisex lifestyle brand. Playing with shapes and colors, they invite you to discover their playful universe, where free-spirits will find their happiness.
Their collection was original, suprising and challenged the notion of age and gender. Their statement lies in the belief that that boys can wear bright pink from head to toe and girls can choose to ride dirt bikes. On top of that, they support experimental artists from all over the world and are sustainable ! What else ?

Talented is a ready-to-wear fashion brand from Riga, Latvia. The brand is defined by strong classic and military aesthetic, carefully selected fabrics, precise silhouettes, and attention to detail. Strict lines and classical colors were contrasting with this heart shape that you could find on each pieces of the collection made our own heart melt ! We fall in love.
