Welcome Summer

It's the first day of summer here in Melbourne, and although the weather doesn't necessarily reflect this today, we are still always excited for breezy, bright and colourful fashions. This gorgeous collection by Mary Katrantzou, from the Spring 2011 ready to wear runway, was the first individual show for the designer. While she used relatively basic shapes and cuts, her prints had amazing depth and symmetry, which created almost abstract optical illusions. Inspired by the importance of backgrounds in photographs, Katrantzou "wanted to put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room". She even used detailing such as curtain-like chiffons, wall sconce necklaces and dangling crystals like those on vintage lampshades. We love the contrast of simplicity and intricacy in her collection, definitely a label to watch!

Elegant Ekberg

Anita Ekberg was a Swedish model in the 1950s who won a contract with Universal Studios and went on to star in a number of 1950s and 1960s films including the famed La Dolce Vita (1960). These beautiful vintage photographs and film stills are just a few examples of what made Ekberg a celebrated pin-up in her time.

Brilliant Bergdorf

Bergdorf Goodman Department Store in New York is known for it's masterful window displays, which have been consistently creative and inspirational over the past decade. The aim is to keep an element of surprise in their displays, meaning they often contrast very extravagant creations with starker exhibits, and showcase high-end designer fashions against backgrounds of antiques and brick-a-brack. Drawing inspiration from films, books, locations and animals, it can take up to a year to collect items for a single window.
