Despite working in fashion and looking at clothes all day long, I always gravitate towards comfortable, wearable designs for my own wardrobe.

SS'10, a collection that truly melds comfort and fashion, is presented in an array of greys, lemons, and an amazing lace print that I cannot wait to get my hands on.

A lovely little film by New York based label Graey showcasing the Spring Summer 10 collection. I especially love the sheer paneled tee and charmeuse shorts - the perfect outfit for lazy summer days.

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.
