I’m a Fashion Editor, and These Summer-to-Autumn Buys Are in My Basket
But along with the cool cult heroes, there’s an array of elevated staples that keep ending up in my cart. There’s always a slip dress or two (just because they’re so easily layered below a blazer or cardigan), and I’ve recently really gotten into knit dresses (I’m particularly loving the jersey and crochet kind), which I’d argue have a different purpose than a slip—they’re thicker and are therefore ideal for breezy beach days or cooler autumnal morning walks to the office.
A brand that’s always a go-to for all of the above is Gabriela Hearst. Based in New York but born in Uruguay, the brand draws inspiration from the Hearst family’s Latin American ranch, where all the pieces are carefully crafted. Think folky, full-length shawls with tassels, saddle-hook belts and a red, orange and blue palette to reflect the region’s coastlines and landscapes. Gabriella Hearst’s recent capsule with MATCHESFASHION includes a series of exclusive pieces, and its dedication to being environmentally friendly makes it even more exciting. The brand’s carbon footprint is kept to a minimum, and up to 80% of the natural materials used are upcycled and developed from existing stock.
So with that, I share with you my not-so-secret current MATCHESFASHION wish list. Happy scrolling!
