Night Accomplice was born from the founder’s Nicola and Suzie lifetime love of fashion, an obsession with decorative detailing, and a desire to create a beautiful, eclectic approach to women’s nightwear.

Les Tricots d’O is a fashion house based in Antwerp, Belgium specialising in hand knitted cardigans made entirely from the highest quality mohair.
Tassel Ying, a women’s knitwear label launched in 2008 by designer Chen Ying Design. It is inspired by life and travelling experiences taken from places as diverse as Tibet to Europe, and aims to create cutting edge knitwear pieces, interpreting the fusion of world culture between folk to urban, east to west.
TOASTIES offer a practical, playful and colourful range of accessories made from recycled sheepskin. Born in France in the spirit of Maria Lye, an Australian living in Belleville Paris, Maria loves to collaborate with the artisans of her neighbourhood. The skin batches selection process and their various origins provide a wide range of colours, textures and effects. Just like in nature, each product is unique.
The Delafon Paris label encompasses energy, passion and style, imbued with an irreverence which is fundamentally their own, their bags affirm a singularity, a state of mind, and unhindered creativity. Delafon’s director, Judith Fabre says: “My favourite piece in the “Black is the New Black” AW19 collection is the Quadri piercing bag. The Quadri bag is our fresh new design, larger and made for everyday life. It takes design elements from the bucket bag and the saddle-bag to create something fashionable and functional. With its iconic and edgy piercings and the mix of materials this bag is the essence of a new Delafon era.”
