Could One of These Brands Be the Next Zara?
5 Australian clothing lines to keep your eye on
Remember the first time you heard about Zara? Or stumbled into Topshop? Chic, affordable pieces from across the globe--kind of blew your mind, right? Well, that’s also how we felt when we discovered these five Australian brands. With fresh and (dare we say?) budget-friendly styles and U.S. shipping, these lines are about to become household names.
Maurie And Eve
The clothing line worn by bloggers around the world. This Sydney-based label looks surprisingly high-end at a fairly reasonable price point. (Dresses don?t cost more than $200.) We love the Altuzarra-esque envelope skirt ($136), and we think we've found our go-to wedding attire in this column dress ($129).
As soon as we slipped on a pair of these velvety-soft shoes ($130), which happen to be unisex, we knew it was love. Hobes, started by Melbourne native Georgia Hobart, is a line of waterproof, lightweight (less than a pound) footwear designed to stand up to any environment. (They make amazing travel companions.)
Bless’ed Are The Meek
We first spotted this line on Chronicles of Her blogger Carmen Hamilton and immediately felt the need to know more. Since then, we frequent the site (to the designer's other label, BC) for all things trend-driven, like this little matching set (starting at $130). P.S. It’s winter in Australia, so don’t be surprised to see coats front and center.
