About Jayson Brunsdon

In my post yesterday, I wore my new Jayson Brunsdon skirt, so today I thought I would feature more about this Australian Designer I love!

Before starting his label in 2004, Brunsdon was first an Illustrator, Stylist and Fashion Editor. His fans include; Naomi Watts, Linda Evangelista and HRH Crown Princess Mary Of Denmark. The Jayson Brunsdon label is now available in 15 countries worldwide; including leading department stores – Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Selfridges and Co.

Jayson Brunsdon Spring / Summer 2011

Creating an elegant, sophisticated and fresh collection – that screams of a ‘perfect summer’ – Jayson Brunsdon’s Spring / Summer 2011 is classic, chic perfection. It is beautifully executed and quite simply charming!

Capturing the elegance of icons such as Grace Kelly, Brunsdon’s silhouettes are flattering and sophisticated. Tie-front bandeaus work perfectly with the high-waisted full length skirts. Clinched in waists, with 50’s shaped skirts, fall perfectly over the body. Meanwhile, clean white Broderie Anglais featured in dresses, shirts and skirts to create a feeling of freshness. The colour palette of white, peach, tan and peppermint is perfect for Summer.

What do you think of the Jayson Brunsdon collection?

p.s. the skirt I wore on New Years Eve from yesterday’s post is the last pictured above (but in the cream version). Love this one too! xx

Bettina Liano – A 60’s Summer Affair

For the Spring/Summer 2010/11 collection, Bettina Liano played with the idea of light – creating some gorgeous pieces to let the sun shine through.

Seemingly weightless dresses combine with the softest of sheer fabrics to create some darling looks. The result is pure Brigitte Bardot – sweet yet undeniably sexy. The collection taps into the lingerie trend, while still being fresh and youthful. Simple dresses have unexpected details such as bow ties at the straps. The feminine shades of soft pink, apricot, baby blue and white are perfect for a 60’s inspired Summer.

Some of my favourite pieces include: the pink baby-doll dress with the long white tee (pictured right); the floral print high-waisted cigarette pants; and the apricot sheer long sleeve dress with ruffle hem (both pictured below). All completely divine!

A little bit about
Bettina Liano…

Without having ever undertaken a sewing lesson; Bettina Liano launched her label in the 1980’s, creating simply-draped jersey dresses. Liano is renowned for her denim jeans that celebrate and enhance the female form, while not stretching out of shape.
