Those of you who trapeze the boardwalk will find Kee Edwards’ Instagram account, @loupcharmant, familiar. For those of us who can’t get our vitamin D via white sand beaches, and have to deal with this thing called seasons, scroll Kee’s feed or online shop, Loup Charmant, for summer ambiance and style that occupies the space between concrete jungles and rising tides.  Plus, lots of boobs.

Collette Ishiyama the sharp shooter behind the Instagram account @colletteishiyama. While her self-titled shop‘s slogan is “more jewelry less cloths,” the sartorial stature her feed shows is nothing to denounce.

On the jewelry warpath, I can’t ignore Vera Balyura. If you meander through her Insta feed, @verameat, you’ll find yourself marveling at cemetery shots, lots of cats, and every photo clad in unapologetically gothic gems.

A joint venture between Tumblr-esque snaps and intrepid fashion, @courtshop’s Instagram is an indie dresser’s dream. With focus on denim, Nicole Tondre and Lisa Fuller’s F/W line stays true to the shop’s 2-year-old New York roots.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Bishme R Cromartie of @bishme_r_cromartie in the past. And while his fire for design is clear in words, it’s even more apparent in the innovative cuts and precise angles of his collection. His designs skirt the ever-thinning line between opulent and edge.
