Designer Spotlight: Alice and Olivia

This week we're taking a look into Alice and Olivia's unique quirky style - an overload of inspiration! Loving the colours and patterns featured in their handbags, not to mention the awesome photography.





 The brand Alice and Olivia was created in 2002 by Stacey Bendet, displaying her sophisicated and eccentric style. It all began with a pair of bell bottom pants and quickly grew to a full collection and eventually accessories, shoes and handbags were added.



And some parting Alice and Olivia words for the week...

A Red Valentino taffeta dress centres the look with it's beautiful colours on a gathered skirt. The glitz is added with a fold over clutch and black stud earrings. Complete with peep toe pumps decorated with a bow and a spray of perfume.

The Traveling Curiosities

Have you seen the amazing Louis Vuitton 'Traveling Curiosities' Collection? Super creative artist Billie Achilleos deconstructs the luxury handbags to create animal masterpieces. The collection travels regularly from boutique to boutique, currently it is Honolulu with it's newest addition the funky turtle.


Some of my favourites are below, but there were so many amazing creations! Would love to visit the exhibition, I can imagine the gorgeous animals are even more stunning in real life.

Eye Candy

Lately I've been lacking motivation for new designs, so this week I've put together a collection of eye candy hoping to ignite some inspiration! Loving the bright colours and unique details from geometric cut outs to wood trims to straw.


So... did it work? Time to get designing, I'm quickly reaching a deadline for an exciting project. Stay tuned to find out what it is!

Feature: Pretty in Pink

Live pretty in pink with this cute collection inspired by pink and white.


The knitted sweater features ruched sleeves and really pops when matched back with crisp white pants. Add some accessories like a big sparkly ring and geometric phone cover. Finish the look with the essentials of unique wedges and a floral handbag. This versatile look can easily be dressed up or down.
