What's Flicking My Switch ...

Thursday I went window shopping and was sooooo inspired by what I saw in boutiques in Melbourne city. I found a few newbies which I'll be featuring soon.  At the moment I'm really into draping and memories of my youth ... think 70's Blondie + edgy 80's ...  

LNA CROPPED LONG SIDED T-SHIRT.  Black, oversized, short-sleeved T-shirt with scoop neck and side tail detailing. Mmmmmmmmmm ....

Nom*d 'BLOW' Spring/Summer Collection Now Instore at Zambesi

The NOM*d summer collection has been delivered and now sits alongside the Zambesi collection ...

Hard work has never looked so easy in a collection built for movement, with clever draping the star of the show. Sheer cottons and airy silks keep it free and easy, rendering tough-guy silhouettes with weightless ease. Feather light fabrics do all the heavy lifting in a parade of classic shapes that take on a new fluidity, but keep their utilitarian appeal.

Girls Will Be Girls ...


Yes, that's right!

Preston Zly Shoe of the Week: Roma

ROMA is the girlie style of the Metropolis collection.   Never compromised for comfort, with its strong cone heel and soft platform, the promenade is a  breeze. The architectural shapes of the shoe contrast with the pliant upper leather which is softly folded and whimsically twisted and knotted  to team with a contrasting round hand woven trim.  Accessorize a floaty 40’s inspired dress or wide legged 20’s pant and partake of  a ‘Roman Holiday’ this summer.

The Roma is available in charcoal and black or coral and red.
