The Aussies do it again! This time, my attention has been caught by Sydney based label Es-Trella. Strong tailoring, beautiful draping and bold pops of colour combine to create a collection that is both undeniably feminine and rebellious.
Es-Trella was founded in 2007 by partners Sarah King and footwear designer Tristan Blair. In 2009 Sarah took over reigns as sole designer, and the results have been amazing. I'm excited to see what's next for the label...

A permanent internet connection has finally been established after our third move in three months! So while catching up on work should be on the top of my "to do" list for this grey, rainy day, internet window shopping has pulled me in. And what better place for indulging in a little fantasy shopping than Far Fetch?

Another Canadian label to get excited about: Noir Bonbon! Their SS'09 collection (pictured above) won me over with styles I would wear day in and day out. If that is a sign of things to come from this young label (just over a year old), then you can expect to hear a lot more about Noir Bonbon.
On top of great, wearable designs, Noir Bonbon is committed to using natural and environmentally friendly fabrics whenever possible.
Above two photos are a sneak-peak of the Fall/Winter '09 collection.

When I first raved about Sibling, I didn't expect to be wowed to the same extent by future collections. (Colourful sequinsed camouflage cardigan sets? Totally epic!) I was wrong. Spring Summer 10, comprised of knit denim jackets, optical skulls and sequins adorned graphic sweaters, is phenomenal from concept all the way through execution. While the collection remains out of price range for me, it stands as a reminder of the innovation (and fun) possible in knitwear, and fashion as a whole.
And to top it all off, yet another amazing video lookbook to add to my growing collection of favourites. The film was created by design and advertising firm This is Real Art with music by Flairs.

Summer has most definitely said good-bye in Berlin. But, I will continue to avoid the reality of the impeding winter by wistfully browsing light and breezy collections from the Southern Hemisphere, like this one from Australian label myPetsQuare, created by Vicki Lee and Angelique May-Bennett.
