Tutu Du Monde: Once Upon A Holiday Collection Launch

Tutu Du Monde has celebrated the launch of the Once Upon a Holiday collection at La Porte Space. The new collection is inspired by ballet and the event was a recreation of this latest campaign and collection – complete with a moon, stars, clouds, gold guided mirrors and crystal chandeliers.

VIP, celebrity and social mums were invited with their daughters to join Tutu Du Monde for the party which included a ballet class by former Australian Ballet dancer Brooke Lockett. Over 30 young girls wearing Tutu Du Monde took the lead from one of Australia’s leading dancers – who guided them through some ballet moves. The room was filled with sweet treats, cakes and all things pretty for the launch.

Guests included: Andrea Rembeck (Owner and Creative Director of Tutu Du Monde) Former Australian Ballet Dancer – Brooke Lockett; Terry Biviano and her daughter Azura; Kate Waterhouse with Sophia Katy Farage with daughter Charlotte, Sienna, Alexia; Sarah Ingham with daughter Domino; Eva Galambos with daughter Alexa and Paloma; Kirsten King with Harper.

Tutu Du Monde – Once Upon a Holiday is inspired by the spectacular and dynamic Holiday window displays of global retailers that are always so highly anticipated…but kept fiercely under wraps. As people line the streets for the window unveilings, this magical ritual enlivens the spirit of the Holidays and inspires the dressing of many trees around the world.

The campaign, captured by Eliza Logan Photography, features dreamy streetscape inspired vitrines which pay homage to the magical charms of the holidays. Grand wrought iron gates frame the scene, porcelain doll mannequins come to life, winter trees shiver in the wind accompanied by glistening flakes, snow-dusted grounds and gleaming golden street lights.

The collection is crafted upon a palette of heavenly colours – powder blush, milk, rosebud, pink sugar, crystal blue and dove grey paired with rich highlights of cherry red, evergreen emerald, amethyst and glittering gold. Signature Tutu du Monde handcrafted embellishments are presented with encrusted jewelled swans, delicate beaded angel-winged bodices and beautifully crystallised tulle bows reminiscent of wrapped presents.

Once Upon A Holiday is a festive collection that features all of the decadent holiday trimmings. Dare to explore your childlike fantasies and be in awe of the wonders and whimsies of the spirit of the Holidays.

Piaget Society Harbourside Sydney Dinner Event

Maison Piaget has opened the first ever Piaget boutique in Australia. Located in the vibrant luxury precinct of Chadstone in Melbourne, the boutique showcases Piaget’s iconic luxury watch and jewellery collections and is crafted like a jewel itself, evoking the brand’s ‘Sunny Side of Life’ mindset. 

Inspired by the first Salon Piaget in Rue du Rhône, Geneva the store is one of the first in the world to launch with the ‘new Salon’ design. Designed as a space for living and for sharing special moments, the Melbourne store leads customers on a journey through a series of exquisitely designed private spaces.

From the façade, with its high arches bathed in light and elegant hanging showcases, to the interior’s play on mirrors and textures, shadow and light, the store captures and reflects the radiant personality of the Maison Piaget. Gold crafted into woven swatches, symbolic of the Maison’s expertise, juxtaposes with vivid jewel colours of coral red, lapis lazuli blue, pink sapphire and emerald green that evoke Piaget’s passion for precious gems and gemstones.

Visitors are encouraged to discover private, more intimate spaces, from an initial dressing-room style alcove clad in brass and coloured glass to the small elliptical displays arranged on shelves. A comfortable open lounge featuring large textured paintings and glass display cabinets invites guests to relax and enjoy the Maison’s collections on display, from the iconic Possession and Piaget Rose jewellery to Altiplano and Polo watches, as well as exceptional boutique-exclusive creations.

Echoing this mood, on the other side of the space is a small library with oval tables that provide a more informal sales area. Two large, half-open doors give way to the last, most exclusive area, the ‘Piaget Society Salon’, an intimate space lined with grey coloured wood, subtly evoking mother-of-pearl and giving the luxurious feel of a private club.

Says Chabi Nouri, CEO of Piaget, “We are incredibly proud to open our first ever boutique in Australia. Maison Piaget has close ties with clients all over the world, and we love to be able to be able to share our collections, our stories and our society with them when they are at home. We have many wonderful clients in Australia already, and we are delighted to welcome them, as well as many new friends, to our first Australian Salon Piaget in Melbourne”.

Sambag Relaunches exclusively Online with new Website NOVEMBER 18

A new start and a new look! Sambag is re-launching after closing its doors earlier in the year due to a very competitive brick-and-mortar market and an unstable retail climate.

After taking some time away from the day to day of running the business and being inundated with beautiful messages from the label’s fans asking if Sambag would ever return, Sam Wagner, Sambag’s founder, realized it was the right time to transform the 23 year old brand she worked so hard to build.

“I had a long time to think and decided I had such an amazing online business and a fantastic customer base that really adored Sambag. I felt excited to build the brand up again but with a focus on the very early foundations the business started on”, says Mrs. Wagner.

Like many other brands, Sambag has transformed their business model by stocking exclusively online and creating a beautiful online store with a bespoke selection of classic Sambag shoes. Each month there will be an injection of new styles and colours to keep the market and Sambag’s valuable customers excited and well-serviced.

Sambag have created a new brand identity with a unique, bold and feminine aesthetic that maintains the brand’s heritage and will create a visual tone for the future of the brand online that allows Sambag customers to reconnect with the brand. Up-and-coming collections will maintain the quality and chic design aesthetic the Sambag customers knows and loves. Sam and the Sambag team are delighted to share this new chapter with you and the new online store will launch shortly.
