Fashion Buyer Rebe Burgess On The Seven Brands To Wear This Summer

21.11.19

Back in September, I asked MUSE Boutique buyer, Rebe Burgess, to share with TTC six of the designers and labels to keep an eye on in spring. Her recommendations proved to be the perfect mix of both emerging labels and heritage brands, and the article was so popular that I’d thought I’d get her back on the blog to deliver her verdict on summer.

As for her summer muse, aka the person who’s Instagram posts she’s constantly saving? “Pernille Teisbaek is my ultimate style icon! I literally save all of her posts on Instagram. I look to her first for outfit inspiration. Other muses I adore are stylists Ilona Hamer, Christine Centenera, Caitlin Burke and Sophia Roe.”
