F L A N N E L, the Australian designer label of Perth-born designer Kristy Lawrence, was created back in 2006. Kristy's first piece was a feminine silk slip, which, 13 years on, remains the backbone of each new collection.
Currently Kristy has a grand total of 17 stores spread across Australia and the USA, the latest being Rundle Street, Adelaide. The clothing is feminine, easy to wear and luxurious, using only the finest of silks, wool and cottons. I love the fact that Kristy has taken the guess work out of styling as colour ways and styles have been chosen carefully so they coordinate seamlessly with other garments from each collection.
I had the pleasure of visiting the Albert Park boutique yesterday. Sadly, I didn't take any photographs, probably because I was so in awe of everything and so excited to find a piece to add to my closet. I was really well attended to by Rachel, who had an amazing eye for design and an amazingly effortless, chic style.
I ended up selecting a really pretty sleeveless black cotton top with broderie anglaise detail to add to my clothing collection. It will go with so many things in my closet, so I'm thrilled! I am even thinking of wearing it layered over my fine cashmere fitted sweaters. I try to get the most of each item of clothing I purchase by wearing it all year round as much as possible. That way, the cost per wear is worth the initial cost of the garment.
F L A N N E L is fast becoming my new favourite label. I have been looking for garments that fit in with my new lifestyle now that I work on a casual basis. I have realised I required more garments that can be worn both as relaxed casual day wear or dressed up for an evening out on the town.
F L A N N E L garments are perfect for this!
I am really looking forward to the launch of F L A N N E L's Spring/Summer Collections. I look forward to my chance to view the new collection in person as it lands in stores in the next couple of months.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Yours in style,
