Designers Nicholas Van Messner & Bridget McCall officially launched their latest LifewithBird boutique in a part of South Yarra that is fast becoming a hub for Australian design (they are now new neighbours with Sass & Bide, Ksubi and Gorman – yet thankfully too far away from Gasp to borrow a cup of sugar).
In keeping with a classic gallery theme, the white walls & pale timber space houses their ready to wear, classics and accessories lines alongside jewellery by independent artists like Polly Van Der Glas and Kester Black. My current picks would be the ‘Jagged Heart’ dress, the ‘Square Cut Maxi Tee’ dress or Black’s charming carved wooden animal pendants. The store will also showcase art – as per LWB tradition – such as the almost-holographic, black and white, fashion photography that jumps out from the walls.
Visit the new LifewithBird at 563 Chapel Street, South Yarra.
