This seasons modern winter wardrobe is all about the deep reds and starts with a flattering jacket, coat or a versatile cape. Add surface interest with bold printed blouses and tops or keep it understated with neutrals. Layering shirts with chunky natural fibre knitwear is the perfect blend of style and comfort. On trend colours are rich navys, mustards and burgandys, paired with classic greys and silvers.
The warm earthy hues of Autumn are quickly followed by a chill in the air and the wood fires at your favourite cafe. This is the time to dress for warmth, comfort and style.

The most versatile garment in your spring wardrobe would have to be the spring jacket. Lightweight and easy to wear on warm days and a great layering piece for those chilly nights. Some of our favourites this season are the Hannah Tencel, Sabrina and Snakeskin. Wear with singlets or long drop back hem tops to accentuate layers. SHOP Jackets for more styles.
Be inspired by the newness and beauty of spring with its blossoming colours, new leaves, golden sand and blue waters.
With a new season comes a fresh new look. I have mixed soft spring colours with khakis, blues, whites oranges, tans and the calssic black. Natural fibres feature feature through out with soft cottons and linen blends as seen in the Marni Long Cardigan, India Linen Trousers and India Linen Jacket. For relaxed and versatile dressing I have continued with chic layering designs which adds the finishing touch to any outfit.
April 10 is when the winter capsule drops in store around New Zealand. Here is my inspiration and a few brief notes about the collection.
With the chill of winter creeping in it is time to bring out knits and jackets. Layering is again the key for a warm stylish look. We have introduced merino wool blends into our knits this season for a luxurious feel and to keep out the chill. Key colours are purple, navy, green and orange which compliment our winter neutrals. Mix match and have fun with winter.
AUTUMN IS ABOUT TRANS SEASONAL DRESSING. Layer with comfort and personal style in mind. Our approach is to use neutrals with a feminine shape then add a splash of individual colour. A key piece is the light weight Black Laurel Jacket which features texture and shape. It is seen over floaty shirts & dresses which highlights its versatility.
I am so impressed and proud of the dedication, skill and craftsmanship of our makers in China I felt that I should share my pride with you. Our makers are as good as any in the world and trust me I have travelled and worked with quality tailors in London and the world over. I used the word friends because with out them I would not be able to bring my creations to life. They are kind considerate and make working with them a pleasure. So from me to you, I hope you feel as proud as I that your garments are made by people who care, and by wearing them your re helping other families from around the world. The pictures above are actually our garments in production.
