Everlane has been my go-to for quality basics for years now, and needless to say, the permanent shipping to Australia is one of my highlights for 2017 – sad, I know but hear me out! If you’re not familiar with Everlane they are a San Francisco based sustainable and ethical apparel company creating modern essentials, their ethos is simple: exceptional quality, ethical factories, and radical transparency. They operate on the basis that the products they create are not at the…

The humble white shirt is a staple in most wardrobes providing a polished yet effortless look. From an unbuttoned silk shirt tucked into a pair of high-waisted jeans to a poplin shirt worn under a dress, the shirt’s minimal design means that it always finds a place in my daily uniform. And this season – luckily for me – is all about the art of shirting, the classic shirt has been reworked and given edge, from deconstructed necklines to extra…

Think Pink

May 11, 2017
millennial pink

It all started in 2016 when Pantone named Rose Quartz colour of the year, the soft blush shade made its way into every Instagram feed, shopping bags and book covers, with brands like Acne, Pop & Suki, Glossier and Mansur Gavriel making it their trademark colour.

“The Always List,  timeless pieces that are the foundation of every wardrobe.” Over the last three years, I have definitely become a lot better at making considered choices when it comes to buying clothes, which has probably stemmed from the fact that I’ve financially prioritised other things like travelling, homewares and of course a mortgage! When I made the decision to try cut down on my fashion spending the first thing I did was to write a list of all the pieces I…

December 14, 2016
superdry perth-the-essentialist-blog

My everyday uniform is made up almost entirely of denim, tees and funky accessories. They are the essentials in my wardrobe which means I’m quite particular when choosing what to add to my collection, it all comes down to the perfect fit and great fabric. So when I heard that iconic British streetwear brand Superdry was going to call Perth home, I was over the moon – however my wardrobe was flinching at the idea of me adding more “essentials” to…

Growing up in Mauritius meant that I spent the most part of my childhood and adolescence being active, on the beach or in the water. You would assume that living 10 minutes away from the beach in Perth I would have a similar lifestyle, but sadly for lack of motivation, time and bad weather I just haven’t had the same connection with the coastline. However, Perth did grace us with a few sunny days these last few weeks and I took the…

If you didn’t by now know, art and fashion are my two favourite things – see my previous post here. Although I consider my style to be rather classic and minimal, a part of me loves bold prints, bright colours and something truly unique. So when I first caught sight of Elle Campbell’s hand painted silk garments at her graduate collection SOLACE, I instantly fell in love and began to follow her journey. Fast forward a year, Campbell has two incredibly…
