How Emerging Designers Tackle (or Maybe Fumble—Hey, We’re All Human) the Winter Holidays

With the idea that the holidays deserve their very own holiday collection, Olivia Kim and the SPACE team created Winter Whites, a seasonal emerging designer shop-in-shop filled with killer gift-worthy accessories, books, housewares and more—and exclusive tweed skirts, rad denim and cotton hoodies from Simone Rocha, Marques’Almeida, Vetements and other top names.

In an interview about the shop with Vogue.com, Olivia said, “I’ve always loved all the various interpretations of the holidays and what they mean to so many different cultures. So, by creating a capsule around white, it seemed so fresh and renewing—like a clean slate.”

We, in turn, tapped a few of our favorite white-shop designers and got their take on what the season’s hottest hue cues up for them and how they approach this season of giving and togetherness.

Meet SPACE Designer Wing Yau of WWAKE, the Elegantly Funky Jewelry Line You Should Know

One of our favorite things about meeting the designers behind the best SPACE jewelry brands is seeing how they rock their own lines. Take, for example, Wing Yau of WWAKE.

When we met Wing at Fashion Week this past February, she took us to school in the most elegant way—showing us how to do the stacked-ring, opal-earring WWAKE look simply by showing up in her own pieces and being easy and fun to hang out with. If the idea of chatting about gemstones while slyly copping a really cool Brooklynite’s approach to edgy-but-delicate accessories is appealing to you, well … here’s hoping you’ll be in San Francisco next week.

New York Fashion Week: How Wing Does WWAKE, or, Be Your Own Ring Stack Designer

Vancouver, BC-born, Rhode Island School of Design-schooled Wing Yau is the consummate New York City designer. Given to highly individualized monochromatic outfits and intelligent conversations about negative space, ethical sourcing, form, function and end users, the WWAKE founder makes fine, edgy jewelry that is as immediately engaging as she is.

And yet, as seriously as she takes her design process, she actually sees you as the ultimate designer. She may negotiate the arches and angles and oversee the production and fabrication of solid gold, opals, sapphires and more, but it’s up to you to compose how they fit on your body.

Still, though, as quietly chic and artfully cool as she is, you can’t help but want to follow her lead.
