TEAM.WORK: STUDIO HOME X RADICAL YES!

Radical Yes! x Studio Home TEAM.WORK Collaboration Project // capsule collection available online exclusively from www.radicalyes.com.au //Shot on location in Christchurch, New Zealand // Photography by Julia Atkinson for Studio Home // Model and illustrator Sally Shand

Welcome to the first TEAM.WORK collaboration of 2015 and in a nod to our ANZAC friendship, our first with an Australian based brand.

Radical Yes! were not only appealing partners with a functional, fun and awesome take on shoes,  I was also super attracted to their modern business mentality. They are an ambitious, exciting but calculated brand who have made their home online and make up their own rules ( two things I am quite into too!).

SO for YOU we knocked heads, threw ideas back and forth across the Tasman sea and arrived at two limited editions styles that we think are just the right amount of classic, quirky and most importantly will slide into everyday busy wardrobes with ease.

Using the classic Radical Yes ‘Abundance’ lace up silhouette as a starting point, we have dressed it up in two new styles.
The first, a classic 70’s vintage vibe with a heavy handle Tobacco Suede upper. This features antique bronze eyelets and super fine cream cotton laces, the Radical – Studio Home detail kicks in with the contrast of a white base, black polkadot canvas lining leaving the feeling modern desert bootie with a graphic twist.

The second pair is a twist on the now classic Radical Yes Polka Dot shoe, with a super cool, French influenced Navy Polka Dot canvas in a painted wash finish. Balanced with high quality Forrest green leather lining and perfectly matched with an emerald lace, this shoe is all about blue and green being perfectly seen.

HOWEVER the real Studio Home – Radical Yes twist lies in the back up lace option!

Both styles are being sold with a clever back up set of black laces, finished with the signature Radical Yes metal clasp detail allowing the wearer to change the look to suit!

As with the ethos of all the TEAM.WORK collaborations, we always pull together more clever, like minded partners for the shoot!
I had a few ideas rattling around in my brain and decided that this time I wanted to do the photography myself (in response to an exciting new partnership with Fujifilm NZ and delish new camera! More to come on this very soon!) and produce imagery with a secondary element for something a little different.
This led me to Christchurch based designer/illustrator Sally Shand of Ragdoll Illustrations - talented AND the perfect model!
We had an awesome day exploring the seaside suburbs of Redcliffs and Sumner to demonstrate the adventuring and light hearted vibe of the capsule collection. After her modelling stint, Sally then did some lighthearted doodling across some of our favourite shots to add a little whimsy.

So there you have it my friends!

The limited edition shoes are available exclusively online from Radical Yes!

Etsy AU at The Cullen

Etsy at The Cullen Design by Marsha Golemac Photography by Brooke Holm

Etsy AU have been getting creatives in their efforts to advocate their down under sellers.

In a cool move they took over a room at The Cullen hotel in Melbourne and let the creative duo of Marsha Golemac and Brooke Holm loose on it. The pair handpicked products from Etsy’s Australian community to demonstrate the potential of furnishing a space from the quality goods on offer and well…..I was impressed!
Botanical designers; Loose Leaf got busy in the courtyard and all in all a total of 40 Etsy sellers were included in the transformation of the space.

What a cool project!
Browse the products featured here.

Collaborative works by Kim Jaeger and Anna Varendorff

Collaborative works by Kim Jaeger and Anna Varendorff

As an ongoing fan of Kim Jaeger (remember my Pot Heads feature?) and undercover instagram coveter of Anna Varendorff’s creations – I have been keenly awaiting this collaboration!

Both are artists and creative experts in their fields but have managed to tread the delicate line exploring their crafts AND earning a living by selling their work.

Kim shared a little with me about the collaboration:
“Anna approached me to collaborate and I was excited by the challenge of working with Anna’s graceful and minimal work alongside my clunky and lumpy forms. I liked the idea of the two very different styles of practice working together in close proximity. So I think the collaboration came from a mutual love of each others work and the challenge of how we were going to get these two practices to sit well together. This show was also about the friendship we formed whilst making this body of work.”

Melbournites you get the opportunity to view at Mr Kitly Gallery!
Details at bottom of post.

April 17th – May 3rd
Opening night Fri April 17 6-8pm
Mr Kitly gallery, 381 Sydney Road Brunswick

“Starting a conversation around their very different practices, Kim Jaeger and Anna Varendorff have built upon the contributions of each other – Jaeger’s undulating and figurative ceramic forms intersecting with Varendorff’s language of formal minimalism. The works to emerge offer weightlessness. They are a moment of nearness for two practices. A closeness of materials and a convergence of thoughts.”

DU ZEN

Du Zen // made in Melbourne, Australia// available online  // Photography by Brooke Holm // Styling by Marsha Golemac

Du Zen is a damn snappy new leather accessories label coming direct to you from Melbourne. Launching into a down under scene of many great bag brands; creator Samantha Rogers (nee Duzenman) pulled from her industrial design background to offer a collection with quirk, edge and a definite playfulness that to me really stands out from the rest!

The entire collection of wallets, pouches, clutches, backpacks, satchels and bags are made locally in Melbourne and all await your browsing here.
