To help you find your perfect match and new picks for the upcoming Fall and Winter season, we’ve curated five must-have American brands that Europeans will love for their unique styles and aesthetics.

Alice + Olivia

With each collection, the American brand mixes together surprising elements such as flirty cutouts with structured shoulders and romantic floral prints.

Alexander Wang

The label hardly needs an introduction. From sporty tank tops to elegant little black dresses, everything Alexander Wang creates has a modern design that will grab your attention. Neutral tones with a pop of colour, straight lines and clean designs with luxurious chains or studs… it’s a rendezvous of minimalist and hidden surprises.

Why You Will Fall In Love: It’s hard not to instantly want everything from the Alexander Wang collection. It’s because they have a very strong ‘less is more’ aesthetic, Alexander Wang pieces can be mixed and matched easily with almost anything. If your style is more on the feminine side, you will love his edgy dresses and super cool accessories such as the statement bags. And, if you are a little tomboy when it comes to fashion, you will want his ripped jeans and oversized T-shirts.

Alex and Ani is a proud supporter of American jobs and local craftsmanship while constantly making a global impact with their work ethic.

Why You Will Fall In Love:
These boho chic pieces perfectly represent the modern American jewellery style—the designs are bohemian and luxurious at the same time, with just the right amount of color and small accessories. Also, the purpose and mission of the brand are simply beautiful.

Kate Spade New York

Kate Spade has been killing it in the fashion game since 1993, and with cool and creative designs (whether it’s a colourful clutch, a geometric accessory, or comfy yoga wear), the brand has quickly become one of the most popular American labels on the circuit.

Why You Will Fall In Love:
The colours, the shapes, the blend of different styles all remind us of the busy streets of New York, and although some find it a bit too pop or conceptual, this is exactly the reason why those who love the label can’t seem to get enough of Kate Spade designs. If hot pink phone cases, palm tree print bags and high heel shaped clutches vibe with your style, then look no further.
