When I was younger, there was nothing that I loved more than rifling through my mother’s jewellery box and parading around with one of her many handbags. My favourite? A white metal mesh purse with a thin strap, that I would fill with bobbles, mum’s lipsticks, and multiple outfit changes for my Barbie. Twenty years […]

Paper Moon

img source I’ve been heavily anticipating the release of Heinui’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, entitled Paper Moon, after stumbling across images a few months back. A capsule collection by most designer’s standards, it proves that quality outweighs quantity, every single time. Overtly feminine, with nipped in waists, full skirts, and slinky shirt dresses, it’s a collection […]

Secret South: Spring/Summer 13/14

Secret South, Spring Summer 13/14 Once again, it’s raining, it’s windy, and well, just downright miserable. After all that talk about winter being behind us, instead of the soft pitter patter of rain, or a light, cool breeze, we find ourselves bracing for a huge storm, which thwarted the attempts of many to fly into […]

RUBY Favourites

So, I think I’m having a bit of a moment with RUBY. It’s hard not to with the recent news that they’ll be releasing a capsule collection of 15 RUBY ‘favourites’; some of the most popular RUBY pieces from past collections, in a nutshell. Even more exciting to see is that Zippora Seven was cast […]

Karen Walker SH SS 13/14, ‘New Rose’

by jamie-lee on July 27, 2013, 8 comments

This summer, I want to be a Karen Walker girl. Her latest collection, ‘New Rose’, which is due in stores next weekend, is best described as an alternative view to prettiness. Floor-sweeping coats sit alongside quirky suspender belted and pink liberty print pleated skirts. Karen’s seemingly gone back to her roots, as silhouettes appear notably […]

Lover the Label, ‘Chorus’

by jamie-lee on July 24, 2013, 8 comments

The first peek of Lover’s SS 13/14 collection, is this stunning campaign with red-haired beauty Karen Elson, which alludes to what could possibly be. Feminine, lady-like silhouettes, sheer fabrics, and lace in soft muted tones, exactly what Lover does best. Most surprising of all? The return of that beautiful rosebud lace fabric. This time, I […]

/lookbook: RUBY ‘The End’ Spring/Summer 13/14

by jamie-lee on July 6, 2013, 9 comments

Earlier this week I received an email from RUBY about their upcoming Spring/Summer collection – an email I had to do a double take upon reading as I couldn’t believe that their new collection was expected to drop so soon, one week from now in fact. I’ve been sitting on these images for the better […]

/lookbook: 3.1 by Phillip Lim Resort ’14

by jamie-lee on July 3, 2013, 5 comments

Sales are on, summer collections are just around the corner, yet I’m somewhat fixated on the many Resort/Cruise lookbooks which have been floating about lately. With summer on its way I’m not quite the target market, although it does seem to hit the spot quite nicely, filling in that gap of what to wear in […]

/first look: Elisabeth Kwan leather goods

I’m always impressed when I meet someone who is truly passionate about turning their dream into reality, a virtue which in my experience, has been present in the many people I’ve met whose main area of interest or employment has been on the more creative side. Fortuitously timed during Wellington Fashion Week, I was introduced […]
