A small selection.

Hello dear Paris '99ers, here are some beautiful pieces floating and 'hide'-ing, sic leather ;) around the salon at the moment!

This delightful little cashmere jumper with metallic butterfly detail is by Frenchman Gilles Dufour. The gentle nude tones and lightness of the fabric allow for wear throughout the colder months and also into spring when the sun starts to shine! Now SOLD.

Here is one of my favourite pieces by one of my all time favourite designers, Roland Mouret. The French native known of course for the Galaxy dress is also a consumate drapiste; view the video on his website to see what I mean. This bright blue silk wrap blouse features the lightest of tucks for shaping and is weighted down the incredibly intricate beading detail shown. It is all metal, metal threads and glass. Amazing.

One can never be without the perfect suede jacket, and this Malo is just that! I have felt a lot of leather jackets, but few if any have come close to the softness of this one, it literally melts to the touch, and the half lining means the amazing construction details are visible. The slightly gathered peplum at the back works into the similar detail on the cuffs and the 'woven' leather belt make this jacket hot property, and it is! Now SOLD

Still on the leather theme is this absolutely stunning Martin Grant shirt. Made from what really is glove quality leather this shirt with its faggoting details through the front and cuffs is truly the epitome of French/Australian chic. Melbourne born Martin Grant has been working in Paris for the good side of 20 years and of course like all good things is still a bit of a well kept secret. Known for using the highest quality materials and the finest tailoring with an abundance of handwork, this piece takes those talents and applies them to leather. Actually it really fits like a glove! I actually have a leather suit from him on its way from Europe as we speak, so I can't wait to show you when it arrives. Now SOLD

Thanks again, and remember to contact us through the blog or at and of course via phone on +61424583409 to make an appointment to visit the salon. Till next time!
