Pins by Lydra

Just a short and sweet one today. Designer leggings in fantastical prints have become a full-blown trend (a particularly welcome one for winter); so I wanted to share a new collection of ‘wearable art’ that recently caught my eye. Accessories label Lydra is using leggings as walking canvases, inviting local artists to

Nevenka Design Competition

Nevenka has launched a new design competition that I had to share with you as the concept is just too darn cute. Their ‘For the love of Stella’ competition invites everyone to draw, sketch, paint or generally somehow create an original design featuring Nevenka designer Rosemary Masic’s dog Stella. Stella

Hasti Bala bar launch

Dion Lee New Ruins

Dion Lee visited Melbourne last week to launch his latest collection ‘New Ruins’ at fashion destination Green with Envy. The designer seems in harmony with this particular Victorian stockist this season, employing a colour palette of aqua and lush forest greens punctuated with soft blush pink and enchanting digital prints.

Saba’s Spring Awakening

Spring is symbolically a time for renewal and reinvigoration. In Melbourne fashion circles especially it is time to (hopefully) cast aside our dark layers and embrace a celebratory mood. Our obsession with the new is catered for as Spring/Summer seasonal pieces can finally be worn. Saba, the label, has also been undergoing something of a
