When you realize that the Morrison brand is named after the owners beloved dog, it instantly gives you a sense of warm, natural rawness. And that is exactly what this brand is about. With an exquisite attention to detail Morrison designs simple, raw, timeless quality pieces that represent independent and innately happy women.
Born & Bred in Perth, Morrison is now gaining reputation as a leading fashion brand all around Australia. They have 6 stores in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne and we are absolutely head over heals in love with their first born, earthy, Morrison Fremantle store. A beautiful raw mix of mis-matched brick walls, mortar, concrete, raw wooden and iron is perfectly balanced and truly captures the story and history of the ancient building and area. Organically integrated with their sleek, modern clothing line, naturally designed jewellery, urban leather goods and a collection of timeless favourite homeware staples, this store is simply perfect.
Now to the coolest part… for Christmas 2014 Morrison in Perth will be stocking “Wanderlust”! We are really excited and can’t wait to see our earthy latte coloured journal merchandised in their natural store. It’s like it found it’s home. Don’t miss a visit to one of their gorgeous stores for Christmas, we guarantee you’ll find some great pieces to put under the tree.
I have now relocated to Sydney for a few months so that Ash and I can finally work together in each others company. We both can’t believe how amazing it is, how much we get done and how much fun we have working together.
Today we jumped on Ash’s vespa and with the wind blowing in our hair we scooted to source some stores we got recommended to over in Manly.
The first store on our list was ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ in which we fell in love with immediately. Just off an alleyway from the main strip you will find this conceptual lifestyle store stocking the latest pieces of wardrobe staples, homewares and stylish kiddies clothing. The store has a trendy but homey, natural feel to it evoking an upmarket boho style with a true Manly vibe.
We got even more smitten when we met their gorgeous buyer ‘Elin’ who just happened to be this sweet, über chic, Swedish girl with a passion for fresh, contemporary ideas and a love for designing herself.
From next week you can find “WANDERLUST” stocked here amongst selected pieces of local and international designers such as Paul & Joe, Ksubi, Zimmerman Kate Sylvester and Bassike.
“EVERYONE loves Readings. It’s the kind of place that has a nostalgic appeal for so many Melburnians – the sort of iconic local business that really has a character all its own, and becomes intertwined in the history of a city like ours. Comprised of six stores across Melbourne, Readings is Australia’s largest independent bookstore, and against all the odds – it’s thriving. It is SO encouraging to walk into the Carlton store (the first and largest Readings store) and see the place PACKED with people, no matter what day of the week. Brilliant!” Full article here.
