Alannah Hill’s sparkling, dreamlike 2012 winter collection dazzles with refinement, sophistication and the capricious individuality that is signature to all of Alannah’s creations – coats, skirts, cardigans and accessories. Colors veer wildly from the primary bright to the autumnal monotone, spangled with light catching beads and confabulating bows. Polka dot, lace, sequin and silk, key classical elements interplay in a fantasy of color and design expressed as pure elegance.

Alannah’s beautiful range is available through David Jones, her boutique stores and the Alannah Hill online store.

Melbourne has become known for its exceptional design talent including local fashion designer Anna Thomas. We’ve seen Anna’s reputation grow dramatically in the recent years with the opening of two flagship stores in Melbourne.

Known for her expert tailoring and the quality of her work the label has continued to evolve since establishing itself back in 2003. A great example of sophisticated, modern fashion that will no doubt appeal to the luxury market with and eye for detail.

We recommend a visit to the Anna Thomas boutique stores on Collins St Melbourne or Malvern Rd Hawksburn. For further information visit www.annathomas.com.au

The Pod Chair designed by Benjamin Hubert and manufactured by de Vorm is a fantastic example of modern Scandinavian design. Produced utilising compressed PET felt technology the chair has been ergonomically designed allowing people to work comfortably whilst creating a private enclosed environment.

These hand carved ceramics from Dimity Kidston come in the most beautiful range of colours, shapes and textures. No two pieces are exactly alike. They are individually carved utilising a sgraffito technique where the pigments slip is etched from the surface by hand. Simple, tactile and well designed these would look great in any home.

These lomography cameras from La Sardina are such a far cry from the black and silver varieties we have been seeing over the past years that they deserved a mention. This selection are from the Western, Fisheye and Pattern editions. Very cool!
