Since it is my birthday weekend & plus the weather is meant to be rain rain and more rain I decided to put off an outfit shoot. Instead I have been thinking lately about Australian talent. I must say I think we are super lucky here to have so many creative people and so much opportunity to do our thing.
So I thought I would put together some of the home grown labels that are constantly on my wish list and doing great things.
KUWAII - clean, precise quiet beauty. This brand came on my radar 2013 and they have truly outdone themselves this season. Their silhouettes are so spot on and their eye for colour makes this brand really stand out. Only launching in 2008, I will be watching this brand very closely for future seasons.
Visit their newly opened store if you're around Melbourne town:
Shop 7-8 Cathedral Arcade
37 Swanston Street - Melboune.
STEELE MELBOURNE - feminine, easy with a slight edge. I am all for clothing that is effortless & comfortable, and this brand does it so beautifully. They excel at their exclusive prints and simple flowing silhouettes.
THURSDAY, SUNDAY - Youthful & clean. This collection for me is the perfect balance between modern clean dressing and school yard cool.
HANSEN & GRETEL - Modern, clean aesthetic & an eye for modern shapes. This brand is always so on point it kills me. I must check their online store weekly waiting for this collection to launch. I suggest you do to!
ZULU & ZEPHYR - Ocean side cool. This brand has the perfect mix of beach/city dressing. The ease of fabrics, cuts and styles makes you want to book an escape to some place coastal as soon as you can.
ANNA QUAN - So clean, So Modern, So Dreamy. This girl knows how to design and even better how to produce beautiful clothing. I just opened my first item of hers earlier today and I was actually blown away - it is easily one of the most beautiful things I own. The cut, the fabric and the attention to detail is truly amazing.
LILYA - Ladylike Ease at its best. If anyone can make someone look feminine and cool at the same time it is this brand. Their lace work, prints and knits are always a stand out. I can not wait to get my hands on this collection, and get on a boat (and look like this).
