MJG Jac + Jack winter 18 edit

My friends at Jac + Jack have a way with colour, by this I mean they always get it just right!

I love their use of a rich but subdued palette, never too bright but just enough colour! I mean this blanket green and butter and honeycomb yellow mixed with classic shades of grey, I love it all!

Jac + Jack always mix classic contemporary style with just enough edge.

Here is my edit from the mens collection, shop the mens and woman winter 18 collections in store and online now

ALEX AND TRAHANAS

ALEX AND TRAHANAS a lifestyle project, celebrated through curated fashion and entertaining pieces.

Created by Alexandra Heard and Heleena Trahanas, the online lifestyle store/design studio is the result of the duos fascination with how we undertake life’s everyday and special ceremonies. ALEX AND TRAHANAS thinks about how these moments can be elevated through quality timeless design.

ALEX AND TRAHANAS will release garments and entertaining pieces sporadically as their travels to Europe and beyond take them to source the nest of fabrics, materials and production methods. Their rst collection titled ‘Aperitivo Hour’ of Italian linen dresses and Puglian hand painted ceramics captures the warm hospitality and summer of Southern Italy.

These pieces, like many to come, are designed to be enjoyed over an aperitivo with good friends.

The debut collection includes a collection of re ned Italian linen shift dresses, made in Australia. With a focus on quality, wearability and ease ALEX AND TRAHANAS sourced their premium garza crepe linen fabric from one of oldest and prestigious mills in Italy. Designed to take you from day to night, available in two styles, a clean silhouette short sleeve dress and a sleeveless shift dress, and available in three classic colours white, navy and forest green, they make the perfect spring/summer dress.

Bassike Paddington

 

The bassike Paddington terrace Store has undergone its first transformation since opening in 2009. The store design reflects the bassike evolution having grown from the original organic cotton jersey collection to including women’s & men’s ready to wear, japan made denim, accessories & fine jewellery, and bassike mini collections.

Bassike’s Deborah Sams & Mary Lou Ryan have partnered with Akin Creative on the store design which elevates the spatial experience through contemporary furnishings & premium design details.

On the ground floor a blending of materials sees hand-selected silver travertine worked across point of sale bench tops, soft grey Italian leather upholstered display plinths, and flax linen fitting rooms carpeted with sisal and finished with artek stools. A central staircase in powder coated steel leads to the lower ground which is anchored by tonal woven rug and Hans Wegner occasional chairs which open out onto a quiet rear courtyard with a teddy-bear magnolia tree & a circular steel planter framed by white concrete plinth stools, cultivating a relaxing environment for shoppers.

“We’ve enjoyed creating the new space in which we have continued to evolve with the brand. Each of our stores have subtle points of difference while always feeling familiar and true to the bassike DNA.” – Deborah Sams, co-founder & director – bassike.

“Redesigning bassike Paddington has allowed us to align the Paddington flagship with the bassike brand as it stands today, but also how we envisage the brand growing over the coming years.” – Mary Lou Ryan, co-founder & director – bassike.

inkkas australia

Inkkas are fair trade shoes for men , woman and children from Peru and you must admit they look pretty cool!

Inkkas are a team of dreamers, working with local artists and artisans to make new clothing come true. Inkkas was born during a backpacking trip to South America in 2012. Danny Ben-Nun, a designer and an avid traveler, was wandering through the alleyways of Cusco, when he discovered a pair shoes made from authentic, local fabrics. The shoes were so beautiful that he knew from the moment he laid eyes on them, that he had to help bring the product to the world.

The Inkkas company was founded on the principles fair trade, philanthropy and authenticity. In 2013, the Inkkas company launched theOneShoeOneTree™ project to help reforest the world and help local populations in developing countries at the same time.
