I bought my first garment from New-Zealand-born Australian-based designer Amy Kaehne. She is one of these young emerging designers that is steadily and surely setting her name to be one to watch and her label one to follow.
Amy is inspired by Tim Burton’s creativity and together with her meticulous use of the finest fabrics in classic cuts with a modern twist, her garments are bound to last and to be treasured forever. At least this is what I thought when I got my Amy Kaehne cape! See these beautiful photos from her SW10 collection. And yes our boutique stocks her latest SS11 collection and she has made gorgeous summer capes! Be a heroine, at all times.
This Amy Kaehne cape is going to be one of my all time favourite Fall staples. Wrapped in wool and silk, luxury and comfort doesn’t get much better than this. Plus the cape comes with a scarf and pockets! The Hello brooch is a treaured souvenir from a talented London-based young emerging designer (sorry I’ve forgotten her name!) who hand-sewed all of her quirky creations. Spitalfields Market is awesome for finding unusual accessories. You would have seen the brooch in this post ‘Secret Identity’ as well.
Posing at a friend’s house, thanks Mairs for letting me use your staicase as a meaningful back drop. This photo reminds me that every day we ought to strive for something higher, better, not in a selfishly ambitious way, but in single steps, one baby step at a time.
