New leather collection by go ask alice

The new Go Ask Alice leather collection // New Zealand - available online  // Art direction and photography by Sarah Allen of Studio Home
This is a great one for a cosy Sunday of internet wandering!

We are stoked to present the new leather collection from Auckland based brand; Go Ask Alice. Inspired by texture, designer Emily Mahy experimented with a neutral palette and beautifully embossed leathers which she then applied to her existing and brand new styles.

The olive green has hit a MAJOR chord !! I love the subtle, classic vibe of all the bags but this new one below….love…

Arkade

Arkade - better furniture for hire! // Auckland, New Zealand //
We’re really happy to bring you the first full look at new “hire” business; Arkade.
Nope, they are not dealing in trailers or hedge trimmers! Instead they have drawn on an immense amount of event experience to recognise the need for indoor and outdoor furnishings with what I can only call; “substance”.

The Auckland based team have worked hard to source and restore character pieces while forming design and manufacturing partnerships with some super talented local makers. Their debut collection sports furniture that has been dip-stripped out the back of Avondale, welded in the CBD, table-tops made in a shed in Muriwai and moulded plywood from Onehunga.  This collaborative approach is of course a great one but the results are what is most exciting particularly for those of you in the area who are already dreaming up dinners at long, modern trestle tables or backyard soiree’s with a good ol’drum brazier!

You can expect to see a lot more from Arkade in the future. Got to love this fresh take on things! Head over here to explore the “raw ingredients” of what is sure to become a large library of great furnishings!

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! 
Orders this weekend ANZAC weekend have free shipping across New Zealand and Australia – just use the code: FREESHIPPING15 at the checkout.

We are giving away a pair too! Scroll down for details!

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.
