A Look At Obus’ Winter Collection

It could be argued that some parts of Australia never truly experience winter, so autumn/winter collections are superfluous. Personally, I look to autumn/winter collections as a lesson in layering and transeasonal dressing. And right now I’m really feeling Obus‘ new Forgotten Isles collection. Inspired by the Hebrides region in Scotland, the collection features an array of muted tones as well as the exclusive Obus prints that we’ve come to know and adore. There’s plenty of slouchy knitwear for layering as well as boots and accessories to complete your look. Whether you’re rugging up in Tasmania or dealing with a cool breeze in the tropical north, Obus has got you covered this winter.

You can shop and see more of the collection over on the Obus website.

Orla Kiely AW16

Venetia Scott is without a doubt one of my favourite photographers. Every now and then she falls off my radar but then I chance upon some new imagery and I’m reminded of how much I adore her work. Case in point: the A/W 2016 campaign that she shot for Orla Kiely (which was also styled by Leith Clark so it was pretty much a given that it would be totally dreamy and whimsical). It’s total seasonal opposites to Australia right now but I couldn’t resist the pastel colour palettes and retro charm.

Obus Spring 2016 Lookbook

The spring collections from various Australian labels have been floating around for some time now and one of my favourites so far has to be the spring offerings from Obus. Bold prints, hints of pastels and geometric shapes mixed with classic staples – it’s basically a checklist of everything I look for in a wardrobe. The following are just a few of my favourite looks from the collection.

Caves Collect AW16

In Queensland, the start of autumn isn’t really marked by the change in weather (it’s still sunshiney and as humid as ever) but by all the autumn/winter collections dropping in stores. Here I am still looking for lightweight linen and cotton tops and all I can see in stores is racks upon racks of knitwear. All this thinking about cooler weather is enough to get me reassessing my transitional wardrobe. The AW16 collection from Melbourne-based Caves Collect has me pretty excited for even the slightest hint of chill in the air. The collection is made up of a bunch of  transitional pieces and classic wardrobe staples. And skivvies. Lots of skivvies. As someone who flat out refused to wear skivvies as a child I am totally open to review my stance on such matters if they look as stylish as this. Caves Collect is currently only available via their website and all clothing and leather goods are made to order.

I’m always on the lookout for new (to me) labels and one recent find is Chorus, a Melbourne based fashion design studio established by Cassandra Wheat and Louise Pannell. This year I’m really trying to embrace quality over quantity in regards to my wardrobe and I think this is one of the reasons I was drawn to the Chorus label. Garments are created in Melbourne using luxury materials and each piece is released in limited editions of no more than 30. Add to that the clothes look dead cool and wearable, in that way that only Melbourne labels can really pull off, and you’ve got yourself a winning combination in my books. 

You can see and shop the collection over on the Chorus website.
