under the wing



Today I spent a lovely afternoon with Hannah getting fresh juice at Gnome in Surry Hills and visiting the Under the Wing showroom. It was amazing to see such a strong collection of local (and NZ) labels and the studio itself was beautiful, think white walls and timber floors and racks and racks of beautiful clothes.
1. Dress Up
I've spoken about how much I love Stephanie's designs before and the winter collection definitely didn't disappoint. Her classic high-waisted, tapered trousers are back in my favourite colour for winter (burgundy for ever) and I immediately fell for the simple turtle neck top.

2 & 3. Lonely Hearts
Oh how lovely this burgundy parka is. I forgot to take a photo but it has this cute Navajo print lining inside and I love the shearling detail around the collar. 

4. The lovely Georgia who took us around the showroom. I have been wanting that BRVTVS Claudia bracelet for so long and I had to take a photo as soon as I spotted it. The watch is amazing too, right?

5 & 6. Carly Hunter
Hannah got this shearling vest in the natural colourway last year and I was so happy to see it make a comeback in black (I might have to get this!) It also came in a beautiful coat. The basic singlet came in a white and black silk or black velvet. I love the cut of this, it reminds me of an Alexander Wang tank I bought from the first T collection, high neck and low cut sides, very Hedi Slimane. 

7 & 8. Deadly Ponies
I love these wallet trios, how cute is the little baby one? 

9. Secret Squirrel
I loved the simplicity of this collection. Favourites were the tapered trousers and matching blazers with silk shirts and lovely knitwear. They did this great silk tee in a few different colours which I think would be a go-to layering piece in winter.

It looks like my winter wishlist is well on its way...


  1. Great photos!! I loved reading your comments on what you liked, and now I'm getting excited for winter now. I definitely need to check out some of these labels!

  2. That watch & bracelet combo is just brilliant perfection. Wish list growing!

  3. so much fun! I dreamt about that carly hunter coat.. It's definitely on the list. Also BRVTVS! amazing! The cleopatra necklace and the julia bracelet. need now. :)


  4. Mary, thanks. Isn't it funny we're thinking about next winter already?

    Angela, I know, I want so many things now too!

    Hannah, we have to place that BRVTVS order one day!

  5. I love the details of this post. The pieces have been well edited. The watch is stunning, who is it by if you don't mind me asking?

  6. Thanks Faridah! The watch is by Uniform Wares (, I want one too.

  7. beautiful pieces!

  8. So much lovely stuff. Pity that these labels aren't more easily available in the UK.

  9. Trust Deadly Ponies to make an amazing wallet that I desperately want in my life but probably couldn't afford, haha.
    Love these photos the clothing!
