The Country: Denmark
The Vibe: A full-fledged line with ready-to-wear, shoes, lingerie and accessories, Ganni is all about classic, easy-to-wear, almost-preppy pieces. Think of it as a slightly more muted (and significantly less expensive) Acne.
How Can I Buy It?: As its website boasts, Ganni has 18 stores in Denmark, Norway, and Germany, and absolutely none in the United States. The brand won't ship to the U.S. from ganni.com, but you can order select pieces through online shops like ASOS and Need Supply. A few boutiques in the states are also starting to carry Ganni like Concrete + Water and Otte in New York City.
Sachi Maxi Dress by Ganni, $475 at otteny.com. One of the few Ganni dresses to safely cross our borders.
The Country: Spain
The Vibe: Pull & Bear's designs for men and women are super-casual, with an emphasis on graphic T-shirts and hoodies, distressed denim, and laid-back knits (with a few trendy items like embroidered military jackets and velvet slip dresses thrown in). It exists somewhere at the cross-section of American Eagle and Forever 21.
How Can I Buy It?: Sometimes, Pull & Bear items magically appear on ASOS, but the brand's full seasonal lineups still remain just out of reach.
These are known as "Fashion Sneakers" on Pull & Bear's website.
