We’ve touched based a few times with Willie Weston co-founders Jessica Booth and Laetitia Prunetti since they launched their business to work with Indigenous owned and operated art centres in remote communities across Australia and in turn; transform their work into modern, high quality textiles and product.

Using the Rosie Ngwarraye Morton’s Sugarbag Dreaming fabric design, they have combined forces with Australian design champion; Koskela to produce these beautiful limited edition bean bags.

Radical vision from Radical Yes!

New sunglasses by Radical Yes! // Australia - available online // Photography by Agnieszka Chabros // as featured on Studio Home

Radical Yes! continue to tear forth in their very own gorgeous, styley direction!
In many ways they are pioneers of the independent fashion world where they produce at will, offering limited edition collections of shoes, sunglasses, bags (and I have no doubt MUCH more!) which are presented constantly with a disregard to traditional fashion “seasons” and the demands of the wider retail community. This means their pace is fast, their collaborations are frequent and the best thing; the quality, small run products can be collected!!!! (well…that’s what I tell myself!)

In this post we look at their new style of sunglasses ( in addition to super lightweight, round debut style I can’t take off!) and the cool concept behind it.

“Collaboration is also a massive part of what we do at Radical Yes. We love the energy that ‘real people’ with amazing stories can bring to a campaign. We like seeing how people interpret our products and make them their own. So to showcase our latest sunglasses collection, and in the spirit of great things happening in twos, we brought together some of our favourite creative teams who are made up of partners, sisters and friends and Agnieszka Chabros shot them for us!

This includes Andy Paltos & Sarah Gilsenan, to the rest of the world, the uber cool creative brains behind Rollas Jeans, but to us our dear longtime friends. Our most favourite and radically stylish French teacher, Julia Pound and her close friend and children’s book author, Samone Bos. And our newest friends and radical collaborators (more about that soon) Laurinda & Fatuma Ndenzako, the sisters behind Collective Closets.

Take your time to explore the new specs below, plus nose into their latest vibrant shoe collaboration with Collective Closets here.

‘Clifton’ by Hunting for George

 Clifton Collection by Hunting for George // Australia - available online // Photography by Annette O'Brien // as featured on Studio Home
Hunting for George continue on their path to be your one-stop-shop for quality Australian design, art and homeware. They really are the champion of the independent designer and have slotted themselves in there too!
Their new collection; ‘Clifton’ is inspired by summers spent in the sleepy Tasmanian, seaside town of the same name, as remembered by co-founders/sisters; Lucy Glade Wright and Jo Harris. 

“I wanted this collection to represent everything we love about Summer holidays. Our fondest memories are from our holiday’s spent at Clifton Beach. Extremely understated and surrounded by nature. I wanted our designs to reflect the simplicity and calm energy of that time.”
Lucy Glade-Wright, co-founder.

This understated approach feels good. No need to shout, no need to launch into attention grabbing prints – instead a softness and focus on actual everyday living for the laid back.
Interceded into the imagery below are also features of their latest offering of prints – again, like everything curated from both their own art AND a carefully selected group of local creators.

Its a pleasure to explore! Get in there here!

Just South West

Beautiful photographic print by Just South West // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio Home, creative talent from the lands down under

Don’t be surprised if these poignant large scale prints look familiar – they are the work of Christchurch photographer Stacey Weaver and have, unsurprisingly, caught the eye of many top design stores.
I also felt captivated on spotting them for the first time, surprised at how drawn I was to the imperfection and beauty found in the last days of a proud bloom. End of days isn’t always a bad thing!

Stacey has followed up her debut range with the launch of her own online store for Just South West and a divine new collaborative collection with Alex & Corban (available exclusively in store and online here – scroll on down for preview!)

I’m really excited to see the larger than life visual goodness that Just South West will bring us NEXT!

TEAM.WORK: Studio Home + ALAS

ALAS x Studio Home TEAM.WORK collaboration project : 100% organic cotton pyjamas // Australia / New Zealand - limited edition, available online http://alasthelabel.com // photography by Julia Atkinson of Studio Home http://www.studiohomeonline.com/

I am SO excited to finally be sharing with you the result of my latest TEAM.WORK collaboration project! Good things take time my friends!
It is such a personal thrill to get the opportunity to step beyond the blog and actually brainstorm ideas with the independent brands/designers/artists that I admire so much.
For this new project, Betony Dircks and Kelly Elkin were the design stars that accepted the challenge to help me come good on my dream delivering you guys the BEST PJ’s EVER! For them – its not such a hard task as their sleep and leisurewear brand; ALAS (“all light and shadow”) has somewhat of a cult following. They know what cool, quality and deliciously cosy inside gear is and lucky for me were keen to share.

Sydney based ALAS is an industry leader when it comes to fashion that is both socially and ecologically responsible :

“Our sleepwear is made in India where the cotton is also grown, spun, woven and dyed. All of our garments are constructed with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, in fair labour, sweatshop-free factories. We visit our producers regularly to maintain strong relationships and trust between all parties. We believe this personal approach is the best way to ensure the integrity of each factory. “
You can explore more about their production and textiles here.

Knowing that I would be presenting you with guilt free garments of top quality (I myself own many pieces of ALAS that are well and truly lasting the distance) it was then down to some trans-tasman brainstorming! The internet was our shared workroom where we skyped and then used a shared Pinterest board to draw inspiration for our shapes, palette and general vibe. Man, that is such a brilliant design tool….
Kelly and Betony then flexed their textile design muscles to translate our ideas into the original print you see below!

ALAS x Studio Home TEAM.WORK collaboration project : 100% organic cotton pyjamas // Australia / New Zealand - limited edition, available online http://alasthelabel.com // photography by Julia Atkinson of Studio Home http://www.studiohomeonline.com/

I was quick to identify the style of the top and bottoms from their existing range – wanting to go for an “inside tracksuit” kind of look and nothing too tight so there would be no need to run for the bra drawer should any wearers get busted clad in their “tracksuit” post acceptable pj wearing hours.
The reverse of the fabric is very soft 100% organic cotton fleece which is pretty lush! The pants have a softly elasticated waistband as well as a drawstring should you need it.

I have been road testing our TEAM.WORK set for the last few weeks. Even giving them a “full day” wear while working (from my home studio…) It’s possible my boyfriend didn’t quite go for my “tracksuit” explanation but it doesn’t count as he knew they were pyjamas first!

Betony, Kelly and I are pleased to offer you this limited edition set available only online at ALAS.
