Microtrends

This season’s fleeting fashion stretches the sartorial spectrum

Crochet

Crochet has re-entered the fashion stratosphere just in time for warm days and balmy nights. Celebrate by slipping on a crochet something next time you hit the markets, town or your local wine bar.

How to wear:

Channel your inner Greek goddess by styling crochet clothing with a silk bandana, a pair of sling-back heels and a basket bag. Don’t forget the ultimate summer accessory: an Aperol Spritz.

Why you need it:

Crochet-clad models walked at the NYFW23 Proenza Schouler show, and global street style continues to demonstrate that the boho fashion is super versatile. A crochet cover-up, dress or set is a must-have in every ‘it girl’ summer wardrobe.

Our pick

Our love affair with SA’s Significant Other runs deep, and the Capella Dress has won our hearts (and a permanent place in our wardrobes). Slow fashion Australian label She Made Me has also rekindled our desire to dress head-to-toe in crochet. The Sana dress is a stunning collation of more than 350 crochet flowers hand-stitched together – making it the perfect summer mini.

Capella Dress, Significant Other, $300 Sana Mini Dress, She Made Me, $399

Pink PP  

Celebrities and haute couture catwalks are clad in the colour designed in collaboration between Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Pantone. P.P Pink is here to stay, set to brighten your springtime fashion and infiltrate wardrobes worldwide.

How to Wear

Mix and match neutral shades with pops of bright pink for a paired-back look. For the bold, dress head-to-toe in the saturated sartorial style. Channel the confidence of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and the trending ‘Barbiecore’ aesthetic when wearing similar shades to P.P Pink. 

Why you need one 

Margot Robbie’s latest live-action Barbie film has us embracing the styles we dressed our childhood companions in – with a little more sophistication than spunk.

Our Pick

Aje are experts at incorporating bright colours into their capsule collections. Wow crowds in their Admiration Asymmetric Mini Dress at your next Spring event. For a day-to-day look, subtly pair P.P Pink earrings with a bright Poppy Lissiman micro mini bag.

Amour Ruffle Mini Dress, Aje, $695 Crikey BB Bag, Poppy Lissiman, $190

Your Black Friday Guide

The biggest shopping day of the year is almost upon us, with Black Friday back this November 25 and its digital sister sale, Cyber Monday, commencing November 28. 

The annual shopping weekend offers serious discounts for brands and products we’ve long been lusting over. So, whether you’re looking to invest in a luxury product or are getting ahead in the Christmas shopping game, it’s time to prepare for the four-day shopping frenzy. While some sales are still under wraps (retail giants like David Jones, Mecca and JB HIFI are yet to release their discounts), we’ve rounded up some of the best Black Friday deals.  

What is Black Friday? 

Historically, Black Friday falls on the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, marking when the holiday shopping period commences.

Black Friday has started to take off in Australia, despite being an American holiday.

Content Creation Thrives at Consume Studio

Consume Studio has changed the game for Adelaide content creators – this month, the Thebarton based business celebrates its first birthday and the wide-reaching impact it’s had on SA’s creative content space.

Consume Studio is the brainchild of owner Carlea Atkins, who says the concept came from a gap in the market.

The studio was born from the idea that influencers and digital creators would work with brands to create digital fashion content. And while that’s Consume’s primary client, the space has also seen brands wanting to shoot e-commerce and campaign imagery.

“After working in the digital marketing space, I realised Adelaide needed versatile creative spaces to shoot aesthetically pleasing social media content,” Carlea says. “So many businesses are rightly emphasising the importance of social media in their marketing budgets, and Consume Studio caters to a wide range of needs.”

Consume transformed from a historic book-binding company into a hub for creativity. The stripped-back, minimalistic space is the perfect blank canvas for content creation, attracting both big brands and micro-influencers to the studio. Previous clients include the JamFactory, Tyniesha Hales for Superga and Brooke Upton for Samsung.

“Consume offers an all-inclusive experience, where I personally curate all of the shoot areas and props that are best suited within those spaces,” Carlea says. “I’m also on hand to assist or to provide advice to clients on the best ways to shoot their content in the space.”

Sustainability is also at the forefront of Carlea’s vision; vintage furniture and unique pre-loved pieces are available to customise the space, and the studio operates on solar power.

“We are also very selective with who can shoot in the space,” Carlea adds. “We don’t allow any paid collaborations with fast fashion brands or companies known to be unethical.”

Price is also ethically factored in for clients, with no add-on costs or fees for furniture, backdrops or shooting locations. Consume Studio’s transparency with its price, ethics and vision has attracted both commercial clients and individuals capturing special moments in-house, like a pregnancy or birthday shoot.

Those booking the studio can hire the space for two to eight hours. For digital creators strategically planning their content, Consume has also curated a monthly content subscription package that allows each creator to pre-book the space at a more desirable rate.

Carlea has been busy behind the scenes and is currently working on a second studio space, which will be announced by the end of the year.

5 Minutes with House of Campbell’s Creative Director

Not many designers debut their launch collection at New York Fashion Week. In 2019, House of Campbell’s creative director, Abby Potter, did just that.

House of Campbell has been in growth mode ever since, appearing digitally at Australian Fashion Week during COVID, releasing a second collection, Reverie, and featuring in British Vogue three times this year alone. We caught up with Abby to talk modern femininity, escapism in fashion and how her grandmother inspired her to create her label.

House of Campbell celebrates modern femininity. Why is this important?

My family is very female dominant and there are a lot of strong forces around me. They helped me embrace what I think modern femininity is and what it means to me – being a strong woman and having opinions while having fun with fashion and enjoying it.

What was the inspiration behind your latest collection, Reverie?

Reverie means to daydream; the collection is inspired by the beginning of the pandemic when I was turning to movies like Marie Antoinette and old Australian Ballet recordings for escapism.

What was the inspiration behind your latest collection, Reverie?

Reverie means to daydream; the collection is inspired by the beginning of the pandemic when I was turning to movies like Marie Antoinette and old Australian Ballet recordings for escapism.

Do you think fashion is tied to an element of escapism?

I think so. We’ve seen it throughout history – look at the 1920s, when women started wearing straight silhouettes and cutting their hair. They were trying to bring a masculine edge into fashion and reflect the environment at the time.

House of Campbell is a tribute to your grandmother, Annie Campbell. How has she inspired your label?

My grandma is one of my best friends. It was really difficult for her when she moved here from post-war Glasgow. A neighbour gifted her a Singer sewing machine and it became her outlet. She taught me to sew and to focus on what I love.

You’re about to jet off to Paris –tell us about that.

We got invited to the official partnering trade show of Paris Fashion Week –only 150 designers are invited globally! The trade show is an opportunity to have garments on display and to coordinate meetings with buyers from international department stores like Selfridges and Bergdorf.

That’s exciting! And when can we expect your next collection?

We’re planning to launch certain pieces of the next collection this October. You’ll see power suits with a feminine edge in rich velvets and beautiful textiles that are a little bit more elaborate.

Quick Fire Questions

Your fashion muse:
Coco Channel. She was so innovative and completely changed fashion.

The song that soundtracks your life:
Anything Spice Girls.

Favourite item in your wardrobe:
The Andie jacket from my first collection.

Your top three dinner party guests:
Alexander McQueen, Edwina McCann, Emma Watson.

Your go-to scent:
Maison Margiela Replica – Under the Lemon Tree.
