New OROTON Creative Director, Sophie Holt has hosted an intimate breakfast to celebrate the AW19 collection, the first entirely designed under her direction.

Held at Cafe Parterre in Sydney’s Woollahra, the ‘Botanist’ range of accessories and silk scarves was showcased in the iconic Eastern Suburbs glasshouse. Live butterflies were released in the space, reflective of the heritage brands metamorphosis.

Lending itself to the AW19 theme, the venue’s classic, modern design of French gardens and Australian sensibility, fitted seamlessly into the idea behind the range; the science of plants; studying their structure, texture and colour.

The botanist tinkers in a humble greenhouse garden. Watching her plants grow in private, studying their shape, texture and colour. Her interest in plants is established. The botanist seeks the experience of raw nature. In the wild river lands she finds beauty in the outdoors, examining curious plant life, collecting samples, finding time for fly fishing.

The menu included Parterre classic dishes: avocado & heirloom tomatos on activated charcoal toast and breakfast bowls of quinoa, poached eggs and smoked salmon. Table settings were commissioned excluisvely for the event by paper insect art by UK artist, Kate Kato.

OROTON has embraced a new approach with Sophie Holt, one which is evident in the new collection. The collection marks a new, fashion forward chapter in the OROTON story which was recently acquired by an entitiy controlled by Mr J Will Vicars.

Notable guests included: Sophie Holt, Montana Cox, Yan Yan Chan, Lucinta Taffs, Sarah Crampton and Anna Feller.
