Newly arrived, Here for a while, But now all gone!

From the iconic Spring/Summer 2009 collection by Belgian maestro Dries Van Noten is this simply gorgeous grey and orange square print silk top. I love the ease of this piece and how the ribbons on the side tie to control the drape. With us for less than a week, and now SOLD

Carrie would go wild for this nothing less than divine Oscar De La Renta skirt. Absolutely dripping with beads in all shapes and sizes, its made of the lighest silk chiffon and lined in the most crisp organza. This skirt is absolutely timeless and it waited patiently for its new owner, who is just over the moon about it! Now SOLD

 I love fashion, and I love almost nothing more than anything by Azzedine Alaia. The slight Tunisian has been studiously perfecting his signature 'body-con' for over 30 years from his atelier in Le Marais. This dress with its figure hugging rib bands, small tucks at the hip to create extra volume and the bust enhancing neckline are essential Alaia. Like every piece from this famed label it did not hang around for long! Now SOLD

Olivier Theyskens is absolutely without question my all-time most admired designer. From his own eponymous label, to the grandeur of his work at Rochas and the coming together of couture and easy daywear at Nina Ricci for me he can do no wrong. Take this exquisite dress from Nina Ricci Autumn/Winter 2008; the fabric just melts to the touch, the reveal of the collarbone exudes sexiness without vulgarity and the tulle godets are silk! I knew this dress would take some time to find its right owner, but it was love at first sight, and a slightly sad goodbye for me, now SOLD

While these pieces are now in happy homes we have so many other special, collectible and just plain irresistible items at our salon space in Elwood, Melbourne and we'd love nothing more than to spend an afternoon with you on our balcony sipping tea and playing with clothes to help you find your new favourite piece. Please contact through the blog or by calling 0424 583 409.
Till next time!
