1950's curves are in for Hutchinson's 2013 swim wear collection 'Final Spin'

Tanya Hutchinson is one of 5 daughters, so she understands the diversity of shape and the line of the female form. After working in accessories for over 15 years Hutchinson developed a taste for happy clashes of pattern and colour. She has transformed her love of feminine diversity, colour and chaos into harmonic unity.

‘Final Spin’ refers to a love of all things 1950's from music to fashion and is a glorious cacophony of swimwear designed to celebrate the va va voom of all you curvy ladies!

The swim suits feature remnants from Rod Stewarts costumiers studio leopard skin and shimmering gold to sweet floral’s and seaside stripes, its an all-sorts line up to sift through until you find the combo you love.

All the tops are reversible and the sizing is comprehensive with varied top and bottom sizing so you are sure to find the mix that is right for you.

Hutchinson has also provided mixture of fabric tensions to allow comfort where its required and a little control where it is also necessary. Bather sets are $154 and made in Fairfield!

I Punched A Bear

Designer Maggie Aitken of our awesome new and edgy up-cycled kids range has taken inspiration from both her own childhood and that of her young son to create the label 'I Punched a Bear".

Maggie remembers making outfits for her teddy bears out of old clothes and scrap materials, now with her own living teddy bear she has come full circle taking into account the practical aspect of kids wear from ease of use to durability. Aitken attempts to use the whole garment in the process of transformation making existing pockets and zips features and creating almost no waste.  

And well, as for the name…..here I quote "One time when I was six, a bear jumped out from a tree so I punched it in the nose" from the designers lips herself, seriously tough and cute just like the clothes.
