bless! we just got a mention on one of our favourite blogs 'teen angst' - the lovely cox rated us as one of  her 5 favourite online stores from around the world (general cucumber was another, which we are rather fond of too ;-) ).

thanks! we love you too!!

boxing clever

we love boxes!! brown cardboard boxes covered with all kind of exotic paperwork, and filled with excitement from all over the globe!! yay for boxes!! in the last few days we've had our first drop from andrea crews with super clever vintage tee's pulled apart and re-constructed into voluminous tunics, fringed bolero's and tees printed with "africa is the future". 

makin jan ma's new collection "give me some deep water" features unisex striped oversized tees some featuring zips that cinch in the body and others feature another half a tee and an extra sleeve leaving fabric that can knotted or swept around like a scarf - as well as super sized zippered shirts and printed leggings.

new for spring/summer is melbourne label material by product, championed by influential blogger/film maker diane pernet, this label features stunning hand finished silk tunics with drippy ties, and printed neckpieces, and the most delicious leather jacket ever... soft, and washed down with a wool jersey lining.

more details on material by product soon!

all the above is in store now, and online soon!

eeeeeeee!! too exciting!!


press up's

yay!! the new 1am is out!! and awwwww it's the 'best friends issue'!! we heart 1am big time, and they have veeeeery nicely included us in their online store round up, and popped a jimmy d sheer silk tee on the lovely elena... the poor emma gleason over at rag pony blog incurred the wrath of blogger with some of these pics so we popped some little crosses over her bits to preserve her modesty...


carri on...

i just came across this image on carri munden's blog featuring super set designer gary card in the 'cp cave', and it got me all excited about our impending cassette playa delivery (not to mention reminding me alot of my studio at the moment...)

we'll let you know when it drops...


fanatic man

we like a good slogan tee every once and a while, and "fanatic man fanatic woman fan" is a pretty good one... it just sounds good... i've started saying it alot... anyway, that's the slogan that features heavily in postweiler hauber's latest collection which has been selling like hot cakes or, maybe, pretzels for a more germanic take on the hot cake... yeah! selling like pretzels!

anyway, here is an interview with raphael hauber, following the strict guidlines we seem to have established for our interviews...:

name: raphael hauber

right now the time is: calm, eclectic.

and where abouts in the world are you? heidelberg, germany

date of birth: 07.06.1977

label name: postweiler hauber

year label started: 2003

my latest collection is entitled: ausbau, a german word that means completion, extension, development , improvement , it is also a term used in house construction for support.

concept/motivation behind the latest collection : the collection ausbau is a collaboration with the artist heinz peter knes. images from his archive are printed on to fabrics that make up this season's collection. although commonly thought of as decorative, this collection focuses on the weight of the ornaments. through repetition ornaments gain an aura of power and meaning that impacts on the masses.

the soundtrack to this collection would be : j. s. bach or a track by christian naujoks.

the ultimate postweiler hauber lady or gent is: sober, contemporary, intelligent, cute and kind.

what do you know about new zealand? unfortunately i have never been to new zealand, what i know maybe is a typical cliche of a magical green hobbit landscape on the other side of the world. I think the people are openminded and generally very interested in what happens in the world.

shoot, shag or marry: ha ha - no famous people!

complete this sentence, I had a vision and my vision was: to do what i do now.

thank you.
