Introducing Susan Rep…

Lounge [laʊndʒ] verb 1. to rest or recline indolently; loll 2. to spend time in idleness 3. to lounge; the sartorial embodiment of Susan Rep‘s eponymous label.

After working for others (such as “pyjama king” Peter Alexander) Melbourne designer Susan Rep could ignore her creative wanderlust no more; leading her to start her own label. Launched only this month, her online boutique features the type of clothing that, upon adorning yourself, transports you to an exotic holiday in your dreams.

Expects kaftans, pyjamas and floaty things that put the mind and body at ease. The pieces are both Melbourne designed and Melbourne made and feature vibrant marble print silk and a touch of wild animal print in resortwear. And as a calming antidote, the crisp, clean white cotton and broderie anglaise featured on sleepwear. Everything seems light as air, this is the kind of dressing that lends itself to stacking bangles up the arm, slipping on some beaded sandals and pouring yourself a long island iced tea or two.

Below are a few of my favourite things from Susan Rep’s first Spring Summer collection. We may not be able to board a plane to Marrakech right now but I can slip into one of these lovelies.




I can imagine wearing this severely belted in, with patent ankle boots and some hardcore black/metallic jewels. Who says kaftans need to be reserved to the beach?





Nothing like a luxurious pair of pj’s that you are tempted to go out in.





Bring on Summer…
