I always get really excited when we introduce a new designer to the shop lineup. We’ve quite a few new labels to introduce to you this spring, and we’re kicking it off with some truly awesome tops from RICHARDS. Sarah Richards recently graduated from RISD and I was really taken with her vibrant digital prints printed on soft silks. I’m a sucker for button ups and pieces with interesting details and these shirts fit the bill.
I’m also happy to announce we’ve a fresh batch of Jake Vinson mugs. They’re all one of a kind so make sure to grab one if you’ve been waiting. Happy Monday everyone!
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
Alas, I’ve returned to my beloved neutrals, although there is a digital print thrown in courtesy the Pelican Avenue top. I’m mostly indifferent to the combat boots trend, but particularly like Acne’s flat version. I think I’d throw a chunky cream scarf over top all of this, too. Have a great weekend all!
I can hear some of you breathing a collective sigh of relief that I’m not posting more black, white, and every other neutral under the sun clothing today.
I admit, I need some colour pick-me up myself, especially since April is proving to be its typical rainy, overcast self.
Basso & Brooke provides the much needed jolt with their dizzying but impressive digital prints.
I’d love to rock just one of their pieces either on its own or with something clean and simple. It’s just the sort of kick-in-the pants all we all need going into the warmer summer months.
