WtR London

Aster Textile is one of those fashion companies that you’ve probably never heard of, but their impact is so colossal within the fashion industry you’ve almost certainly worn something in some way produced by them. With production facilities in Serbia and Turkey, where the Kocali family, who founded Aster, relocated in the early 1900s, their clients everyone from Sandro and Maje to Zara, H&M, Topshop, Marks & Spencer and Boden. WtR was set up in 2014 as the company’s first ever own-brand label, and it’s a revelation in simple, elegant and cosmopolitan dressing (there’s also some lovely Turkish homeware too). Designed and produced in Istanbul with hand-finished detailing and sharp silhouettes, head along to their Westbourne Grove boutique (or online to Harvey Nichols) to see their autumn-winter collection, all inspired by the diversity and contrasts of New York City.
