Hard at work in Italy ...

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Our Italian shoe makers are putting the finishing touches on the Autumn Winter 2012 collection as we speak! (Yes - they are working through Christmas to make up for some lost time caused by a leather delay).

Normally I would be there during these final stages, but everything was progressing very well last time I visited (in November) and so I took the opportunity to stay at home and open the Chapel street store. Consequently, there has been a lot of skyping and photos being emailed back and forth. Here are a few they just sent of the hand painted styles with brogue punching detail.



Although it’s pretty hot in Melbourne right now, I’m already thinking about all the winter wardrobe possibilities of this group. I'm not wanting to play favourites, but the “Juggler” chelsea boot is my secret pick of them at this stage!

(They’re available to purchase in Feb/March. Sign up to the newsletter on the home page for exact dates.)


We're at it again .... pop pop pop pop

Week one in our latest POP UP shop has been a goodie.

Its been wonderful to re-aquaint myself with good 'ol Chapel street, and discover that a few other newies have moved into the strip lately too (Life with Bird, ksubi and Top Shop).

We're a stones throw from Scanlan, Zimmerman, Gorman, Saba, Arthur Galan, Collette, Sass & Bide .... and next door to the always lovely (and uniquely Melbourne) Bisonte!

So if you're in the neighbourhood please drop in to say hello ... and if you've got a man attached to you, tell him we've got a 'man chair' with daily sports pages in the shop especially for him!

 .... plus the amazing 'carmella' range of pony skin bags by Sarah Conners are available in our store too!!


589 Chapel Street - South Yarra.

(3 doors down from Country Road). 



November round up

Friday, December 02, 2011

November was a great month as it's the one month of the season that we're not either out selling to stores or designing/making. So it's the perfect opportunity for me to stop and collect my (personal) marbles ... And try to focus on some big picture habbot stuff.

Here's what I've been up to …
