We Are Kindred
We Are Kindred is powered by a dynamic Australian sister duo, Lizzie and Georgie Renkert. They established We Are Kindred in 2013 off the back of over 30 years of collective experience in magazine editing, design, buying and development.
Their feminine aesthetic with a hint of bohemia took Australia by storm and the international retailers followed suit with companies like Mona Operandi adding We Are Kindred to their designer portfolio.
"In a celebration of harmony and symbiosis, We Are Kindred is feminine, yet modern and our innovative designs are realised through rich fabrications, embellishments and bespoke prints."
The Wolf Gang
The Wolf Gang is an Australian brand predominantly known for their accessories. Their aesthetic is inspired by exotic lands resulting in soft suede bags in muted colours and bright leather clutches with handmade tassels. They have recently ventured into ready to wear such as their tailored bodices with top stitched detailing in earthy tones.
The quality of the materials used and the level of craftsmanship is key in everything they create. The Wolf Gang is known for their ethos of quality over trends and feel that pieces are to be investments, treasured over time all at an accessible price point.
Australian brand, Zaliah, is founded by Tiarne Ettingshausen and her mother and they specialise in leather pieces. Nothing is more timeless than a leather jacket or pants, and these wardrobe icons are made with the most beautiful leather at a very competitive price point. Their soft buttery lamb skin is not only durable and will last for years, it is like a second skin that moulds to your body. Many Australian fashion influencers are big fans and their reach is creeping into the UK also, competing with the exorbitant prices of leather garments by European designers.
Harmony Lam, the creative director of Héxié, founded her own label in 2008 after a decade in the industry working behind the scenes. Her philosophy is statement designs, thoughtfully created with limited fabrications and rare materials. Each piece is carefully created in small numbers making them that much more special. Her shirts and blouses feature elements that make a statement but it's the finer details that only the wearer knows and discovers over time that are truly special. The oversized bows are genius accessories to add a little something to your suit or dress giving your wardrobe more versitility.
