Our Favorite Emerging Accessories Brands

Anyone who loves accessories wants the best of the best, but we also look for what’s new, what companies are up and coming, and what they have to offer. Here, we share some of our favorite emerging accessories brands and the products that stand out.

Stuart and Lau

Matthew Stuart and Jimmy Lau, the co-founders of Stuart and Lau, set out to create a brand with clean and sharply designed products for people on the go. We love the sleek Capstone Backpack ($295, shop here), which features innovative foam-injected straps for carrying comfort and a gull-wing format that makes so much of what you put inside accessible.


Founded in 2016 in Melbourne, Australia, Alpaka specializes in products for people who spend most of their time in cities. We can’t get enough of the foldable, easy-to-carry Elements Tote ($49, shop here), an excellent option for on-the-go use. The magnetic closure is a unique feature that makes it easy to open and close.


Tropicfeel is an emerging accessories brand where you can find great shoes, backpacks, luggage, and more. Our top choice is the water-friendly Jungle Silver White Shoes ($129, shop here), available in men’s and women’s sizes and eight color schemes. They have a foldable heel, making them easy to pack, and a high grip, keeping you from slipping on most terrains.

Topo Designs

Topo Designs is committed to creating products that help people explore the world, whether on a mountain trail or a city street. The stylish designs come in fun colorways and feature innovative technologies. For example, the Mountain Cross Bag ($129, shop here) is perfect for everyday use, whether commuting to the office or heading to a coffee shop. It’s also great for travel.


Nomatic creates incredibly sleek and practical bags and travel gear. The water-resistant Access Sling ($59.99, shop here) is one of the best sling bags out there. It has an RFID-safe pocket and is fantastic for walking city streets or on a trail.
