Gosselin is known for her namesake line, launched in 2014, and was recently a finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund competition. Archie Hewlett of Duke & Dexter has garnered attention for his premium loafer line from the U.K. Celebrity fans run the gamut from Ryan Reynolds to Tyson Beckford. Matisse has found a growing niche in the market by producing affordable, fashionable pieces that blend a little edge with worn-in styling. The brand also made headlines for a buzzy Kate Bosworth collaboration.
