Want to discover the hot designers before theyâ€™ve become mainstream-hot? Check out the collections of five emerging designers at Saks Fifth Avenueâ€™s new Fashion Incubator. The site, created to spotlight the work of the fashion industryâ€™s up-and-coming, features funky shoes, great bags and sharp clothing. You definitely wonâ€™t find any bargains on the site (weâ€™re talking $1280 for a cool, studded tote and more than $400 for hot pink pumps) â€“ but itâ€™s a chance to get acquainted with some young designers before they become regulars on the pages of Vogue.
I especially loved Eugenia Kim’s cashmere/patent leather pumps and Be&D’s studded leather satchel. Both designers are featured in the Fashion Incubator.
