Remember when I posted about Dun Market, the delicious little webshop run by Jesse Bonny? Well, Jesse being the total sweetheart that she is, agreed to make a few necklaces for the Shop and I’m pretty much super excited to now be offering them. They’re 100% handmade from repurposed materials and gourds grown in Jesse’s own garden. They’re bold, incredibly unique pieces that reflect Bonny’s warm, organic style. Welcome Dun!
Generally, when I think about Australian designers I think bright colours and playful, trendy silhouettes, which I admit is kind of silly since I’ve featured plenty of Aussie designers who don’t really fit that mold. I am not going to lie though when I say I was surprised by the relaxed maturity of the brother/sister duo designed Alpha60. Maybe it’s my age, but I find myself increasingly looking for clothing that doesn’t make me feel like some sort of youth trend victim. This label appeals to my old lady ( ha ha ) sensibilities with a lovely balance of structure, draping, and clever prints.
Bear with the annoying flash based website to check out their collections, and you can buy their pleated scarves off their online shop
