I’m a long time fan of young NZ designer; Georgia Jay and her high quality, leather accessories. Quality, attention to detail and every day function is at the forefront of her design resulting in bags, purses and clutches that don’t compete for the spotlight. They are subtle, beautiful additions to your daily get up! Take some time to browse the great shoot completed recently with her local team below and click on through to view the entire collection here.

Now back making all her hats by hand in New Zealand; designer Emma Cheape of The Brim Label has just released a new, slightly cosier collection for discerning head coverers. There are some classically cool cheese cutters (for the boys too!), caps, felt wide brims and I am particularly loving the Marnie bands which keep ears warm with style. Explore all online here!

I’m excited to be introducing you to Edith Rewa! In all honesty, I’m pretty besotted with her work!!! Edith is heavily inspired by the native Australian bush the surrounds her home in the Blue Mountains. However, the fact she also has ” ….. one toe in Hobart and the other in Melbourne” allows her work to stray beyond a canvas to, what really are, some of my favourite silk scarves ever! The one below is most definitely going to be skipping the Tasman to live with me soon… Please take some
And to continue the run of super cool fashion coming outside of the main centres, I wanted to update you on whats fresh from Queenstown based New Lands. Helmed by designer Natalie Newlands (who is also the owner of cult local boutique; Angel Divine) New Lands always offers the option to subtly (or not so subtly) stray from the norm with cool, modern interpretations of everyday clothing. This collection has some amazing pattern and fabric as well. Have some FUN! Explore all here and you can browse to buy online here.
Seriously – if you haven’t paid attention to my previous posts about one of New Zealands most exciting young brands….then please….take some time for Revie today! I don’t know where to turn with the new collection; Wanderer by Katie Revie. If only one had more than 2 feet!! The colours (olives, blacks, tans and golds) vs the textures (suedes, leather, wood) vs the styles (every day heel, special heel, hybrid boot/shoe, loafers…..SO MANY!) has got me downright engaged. Explore all of the Revie world here AND if you are in
I have a lot of great down under fashion related posts coming your way in the next week my friends! Just in time for winter nesting via personal style if you know what I mean. First up I’d like to introduce you to Arielle Mermin. A wandering surf gypsy who strayed from her native California only to find herself circling the globe to meet her future husband in Kaikoura! She has now set up her HQ in the seaside town of Okato, Taranaki, and translated her gorgeous, laid back aesthetic into
Set you pre-hibernation eyes on the new Midnight Musings collection from ALAS.

I’m VERY excited to say that its not long now until we can reveal our special ALAS x Studio Home TEAM.WORK collaboration! Whoohoo! PS …that nightie below is soon to be setting up camp in my bed.

It feels like the ideal murky, autumnal day to share this years cooler climate offerings from our friends at Elk. The imagery here is a TINY cross section of the clothing, footwear, leather, jewellery, sleepwear AND man accessories available and still dropping online here. I’m always captured and feel compelled to share their collections with you as I really think they are created with us somewhat normal, but design loving people out there. Its all very wearable and functional which works for busy lives but with a special attention to
Always a sucker for jewels I thought I’d better just leave the new collection; Luna by Flash Jewellery here for your post Easter perusing… I love their pared back but unique aesthetic particularly the Midnight Onxy Stud , Luna Studs and Moonlight Stacker in gold of course…because I am addicted. But PLEASE take a look at all of their remaining work online as they have some seriously slick stock from past ranges that is nibbling away at my will power. Like these….. and this!

Each to Own was some mad beautiful instagram find for me! I distinctly remember scrolling through their terrific feed and despite my natural slide toward neutrals and texture – I took one look at these eye popping, party fueled creations and instantly had to delve further! Designer/maker; Kirsten Devitt works with magic glittery and deeply saturated acrylic to offer a range of brooches, necklaces and my favourite; earrings. The imagery below definitely speaks for itself however I can personally vouch for their wearability …… in particular with these bad boys!
