NEW in store this week! We are very lucky (well Katie and Sam are, I am still at home mending) to have received a limited line of Wellington loved label Starfish! We have the most amazing long cardigan, dress, and merino cami and soon we'll have a gorgeous selection of thier hats and gloves. Winter is gonna be so fine! Nobody does chilly weather wear like Laurie Foon. I Hope you like what we hand picked as I think the pieces are to die for.
Inspired by the work and ongoing legacy of Rita Angus, Starfish's winter collection HEIRLOOM acknowledges things that are precious to us, and things that we want to pass on. Central to this is enduring design and the use of natural and eco-friendly materials to create garments that last. These include a fantastic national treasure and obvious resource – wool. The 18 and 22.5 micron worsted wool that we are using is not only light, fine and gorgeous to wear, but it is also grown and woven locally in New Zealand. Another of our preferred fabrics is a lustrous fabric blending hemp, silk and organic cotton that feels wonderful to wear while also being versatile and renewable. Many of (thier) garments are then finished off with a selection of recycled buttons and buckles that have been sourced for their minimal environmental impact. Rita Angus’ incredible interpretation of New Zealand landscapes and her use of colour also resonates through our range. A blend of earthy tones and vivid highlights combine to form a mosaic of colour that complement the 50s feminine silhouette with an emphasis on the waist. Starfish garments in the HEIRLOOM collection are 100% designed and made on-shore in New Zealand.
