the new pilot magazine is out now and it's pretty darn spectacular! in saying that we are a little biased because there are some beautiful images of pieces from our store (and also a page on me!) from the top:

jensen is in!

it's here!! yay!! the resort collection from peter jensen is on the racks (and in the window) and it's a breath of summery fresh air... peter jensen's iconic bunny is transformed into super cute shift dresses where the ears become halter neck ties, it's appliqued onto super sized silk tee's in white and red, printed onto tee shirt dresses with hitched bow tied details and finally adorning the sweetest little ballet flats around. there is also a gorgeous prim ivory dress with an asymmetric ruffle detail.

perfect timing for summer!! it's all so bloody adorable!! sometimes i hate being a boy...

available online soon.

take a hint

hint mag is a bit of a pioneer when it comes to online magazines, I remember reading it when I was a fashion deprived teen living in upper hutt... which was... well... a while ago now...

so imagine our excitement when we saw children of vision featured in hint mags 'shop tart' section, we just about wet ourselves... true story. the story goes on to mention the new chanel store in shanghai, so we're in pretty good company....

thanks hint!! we looooooove you!

press up's

the new 1am is out!! yay!! and as we were clicking our way through the mag we were very happy to see daniel palillo's 'sleeveless addams' dress featured in marissa findlay's shoot 'long exposure'. we love a nice long dress for summer here...

we have also heard rumours that 1am may be back in print next year, so we may be able to enjoy flicking through the mag for real again soon... joy!


xmas gift idea #2

how about the gift of lurve for xmas?? (i think i just threw up a little bit in my mouth due to my own cheesyness!) but seriously, whilst giving a magazine to some for christmas may seem a little underwhelming this aint no woman's weekly. lurve magazine hails from germany and aims to stay well away from the mainstream, covering beautifully obscure people, fashion, art and music - issue 2 'hedonism' features interviews with bruno pieters and emerging international designers such rozalb de mura, christopher ross, and telfar. as well as editorials featuring wunderkind charles guislain, and bernhard willhelm styled by the late daul kim and the whole mag features fashion direction by one of our favourite bloggers zana from garbage dress.

it's a beautiful, collectable piece and an inspirational read (all printed on paper that is from recycled and renewable products no less!) and children of vision is currently the only stockist in australasia.

lurve magazine issue 2 is $45 + shipping
