The moment we arrived at The Parker, we knew we had to use it for this shoot. Probably the most exciting wall I’ve ever seen.
Wearing Mossman, it’s a look that brings out the more delicate and feminine girl in me, a look I rarely like to express but really loved the idea of trying it out – putting my own flavour on it, of course. Polka dots and high-waisted pencil skirts are normally a no-go for me, but this combination I love, especially the neon highlights in the silk blouse – both pieces part of their current Neon Nemesis collection, the campaign featuring the amazing Sophie Van Den Akker.
The gold metal belt is by Mettle Fair Trade – a nice, metallic touch, love the way it breaks up the look with a bit of shine. Created by Melbourne designer Brianna Hallihan, Mettle Fair Trade is about limited edition, hand made fashion accessories made from recycled bomb shell metal once used by the Khmer Rouge, brought to shimmering life by artisans within a small, non-profit income generation and skills training project in Cambodia. When you purchase a piece of Mettle you’re supporting struggling Cambodian women and contributing to the recycling of these otherwise undesirable bomb shell leftovers. Fashion with a conscience!
The sunglasses are insane – by another new label crush, Andy Wolf Eyewear. Designer and owner Andy Wolf avoids mass-market production, with all pieces designed and handmade entirely in Austria. Soon to become available in Australia, Jesse and I have been lucky enough to rock a selection of these here and while in the US. Tired of the usual designer sunglasses on the market, we wanted to take a more individualistic approach to luxury eyewear and stand out a little. How awesome are the lenses?
More posts on all these labels to come!
