Finding Beauty Within
Finding beauty and colour in the unexpected, partnered with Deadly Ponies’ deep well of creativity and extraordinary craftsmanship brings us their three-part Spring Summer ‘21 collection.
Inspired by Charlotte Perriand’s House of a Young Man (1935), this collection exudes elements and textures harmoniously uniting in an exploration of space, with a distinctly rich colour palette. “I look to Charlotte Perriand as a muse. She was a pioneer in the industry and a creative female voice during a time when there were few opportunities, with a really unique style,” says Creative Director, Liam Bowden.
The first installment presents a super-fine, luxurious suede across intricate new shapes and the return of some of Deadly Ponies’ most-loved pieces in prairie hues of moss, thyme and cornflower. Gradient treatments and tactile textures of umptuously soft suede and their classic buttery leather reach new heights with Part II, exploring bold, two-toned python dip conflated by ombre-hued amethyst croc. To close, a subdued sunset-inspired palette graces the collection for Part III in hues that resemble that of the spirit of long summer nights.
The vibrant SS21 collection is available in store and online, across three unique parts.
From Bed to Brunch
The emergence of a new season always excites, especially in the world of fashion. But with the alarming environmental issues brought on by the industry coupled with a greater focus on ethical and sustainable fashion, “seasonless” pieces or collections are taking centrestage. Fortunately, for New Zealand sleepwear brand General Sleep, this is right up their alley.
‘Sissy’, General Sleep’s SS21 collection, successfully removes the need for seasonal designs but instead brings us pieces that are versatile enough to be worn outside our bedrooms. One can go from brushing their teeth to brunch in the same ‘Sissy’ pieces in a new khaki stripe, as well as the large gingham check now in playful colours inspired by citrus tones of Clementine and Yuzu. This delicious colourway adds a freshness to their beloved staples – from Sleep Shirts to sets – all made with 100% organic cotton.
SS21 also marks the exciting launch to Harvey Nichols and Goop alongside current international e-retailers Matchesfashion, Revenvert, and later this year, Browns.
The ‘Sissy’ collection is available at generalsleepstore.com and selected stockists.
On Shoes & Sisterhood
What does it mean to be a woman? Answers come in varied ways and forms thanks to the empowering feminist movement that is one of the cornerstones in our society. To add to this significant conversation and to emphasise the power of individuality while finding solidarity in sisterhood, Mi Piaci puts together a curated and well-considered collection by New Zealand women, for all women, which ultimately explores what it means to be one.
Mi Piaci’s Spring/Summer ‘21 collection kicks off the August eclectic capsule that is representative of Feminine Utility and Verdant Spring, followed by a trip down Retro Redux lane with clog-inspired ‘90s silhouettes. October takes a turn to the Seaside Retreat, channelling the brighter times and tropical destinations ahead. In November, Soft Contrast challenge’s norms of proportion and volume. And to close the year with a bang, the Summer capsule will encourage maximalism and self-expression, with mood-enhancing bedazzled looks. In typical Mi Piaci fashion, we can eagerly expect soles for every occasion and every woman.
