We all like hanging out with our gal-pals and it's even more cool when you get to create stuff with them too!
Karin Amdal (she of Filiokus fame and many other clever creative projects:) and I got together to design a brand new summer print for my Vacationer collection which would take it's inspiration from summer picnics and days spent lazing on the beach.
Ahhh, yes idyllic....but we weren't content just with that and thought it needed a little local flavour to make it more 'us'.
Now if you know Wellington at all it's famous for it's relentless wind (we're not complaining, honest) so we decided to add a wee zephur, or two, breezing through the artwork and now we have our very own 'spin' on summer!
Screenprinted by the local lads at Brazen in tones of grey, pink, sky blue and red it now graces the front of my Sandie beach scoop back top which is in-store now.
If you're like me you'll fall in love with these beautifully made, delicately detailed and perfectly practical bags from the Whimsy collection designed by Melbournian Lauren Ferry.
We are so lucky to be the first NZ stockist of these and just in time for putting one under the Christmas tree:)
Which one to pick? Decisions, decisions... Hannah has already nabbed a Boyscout in black and is loving it! Scrummy soft Italian leather, super cute stripe lining and lots of handy pockets inside and out- we have black as well as tan in-stock now.
