Words by Amy De Klerk
A few decades ago, us shoppers tended to fit into two clear categories: those who bought on the high street and those who filled their wardrobes with designer products. However, due to a number of factors (including social media, influencers and a heightened understanding of sustainability), the industry has changed in a big way over the past few years – and with this has come a rise in the number of contemporary labels, which fit somewhere between the affordable and luxury camps.

Below, we round up 25 of them, all of which are loved by fashion editors the world over.
