We welcome the launch of An Organised Life Design at RESIDENT LUXE.

Launched in late 2013 by New Zealander Beck Wadworth, stationery & lifestyle brand An Organised Life was born out of the desire to create luxurious yet functional stationery for the everyday life.

The graphic designer turned her love for typography and fashion into a modern lifestyle destination, bringing organisation and structure into busy lives.

The label currently offers a curated selection of minimalistic black and white notebooks, diaries, a travel journal, a leather notebook, letter press prints, pens and as of November 2015 a  ‘An Organised Life’ watch.

Beck from An Organised Life is also a blogger for Vogue Australia & a brand ambassador for Veuve Clicquot Rich.

The LIFEwithBIRD Spring 2015 collection, Residence, explores the relationship between structure and aesthetic, taking influence from contemporary interiors. Designers Bridget McCall and Nicholas Van Messner refine this concept, by imparting a sense of individual style that interprets interior design without looking or feeling forced. The effect is an aesthetic that is confident, chic and most of all, effortless.

From grand palatial to back street industrial, Residence was born from the influence of Art Deco furnishings, eccentric wallpapers and intricate mosaic tiles. Through considered silhouettes and fabrications the collection is defined by its fusion of craftsmanship and detail with a sense of refined ease.

A contemporary aesthetic is achieved through unique and original designs, with an emphasis on tailoring and the use of custom developed luxury fabrics. Italian Metallic Tweed Jacquards, High Density Mesh and Bonded Crepe Sateen’s, create a refined collection of effortless desirability

In essence, the Residence collection is the definitive edit of refined tailoring and elevated classics.

We are thrilled to welcome the debut collection of new cutting edge label, Acler to our ranks! A fresh, directional take on womenswear amongst a sea of established and emerging designers, this striking new label makes an impressionable entrance with a dynamic collection that excites and ignites.

When co-designers Kathryn Forth and Julia Ritorto first met to conceptualise Acler, their common goal was to rebel against cookie-cutter digital design and bring the design process back to its fundamentally tactile roots. Each Acler piece is developed over a process of 12 months, and is subtly redrafted, and redraped along the way, allowing the design to take on its own form naturally. The end result is a meticulously constructed piece, which has an organic sculptural shape and an ultimately refined minimalism. Acler’s debut collection for Spring / Summer ‘15 consciously explores the contrasting styles of its co-designers. Julia’s structured feminine style perfectly contradicts the billowing, androgynous shapes at Kathryn’s design core, and the result is a harmoniously balanced debut collection which celebrates simplicity of design.

A modern Japanese influence is explored in contemporary kimonos and layered oversized shirting with crisp angular tucks. In the style of origami, strips of fabric wrap around bodices, and folding over necklines, or are raw cut and hanging from a waistline. The collection features Lustrious Italian embossing, textured Korean acetate blends and soft washed silks painted with Japanese sumi-e brush strokes which perfectly compliment the understated colour palette. The contradictory element is a throw back to the 70s with crisp white tailoring, a fluid palazzo pant and softer draped shapes, while a hint of seaport and yellow adding an unexpected depth and vibrancy to the collection.

LUXE STYLING // Winter Transition

Luxe Styling

Creating the ultimate tran-seasonal wardrobe is easy with our latest curation of coveted pieces from RESIDENT LUXE. The key to transitioning effortlessly from season to season is luxe, lightweight & lasting pieces that cross over the climates. Premium denim is a consistent core wardrobe staple throughout any season, creating the basis of classic, easy outfitting. Look for a flattering fit in a dark or black wash, generally in a slim or skinny leg that will constantly look sleek and go with everything. A lightweight trench with luxury fabrication is the ultimate transition investment piece to take you from day to night, weekend though travel. Look for a trench in a neutral hue to give longevity to your wardrobe. A navy or black trench will never go out of style and will quickly become your favourite piece to instantly enhance the sophistication factor of your outfit. Luxe leather boots and a minimalist yet statement leather handbag will carry you throughout the seasons in style. Statement sunglasses are a must, and are a genuine investment. Choose wisely, and don’t be afraid to splurge on a fabulous designer pair, as you will get great milage out of them. A simple silk blouse will always be relevant. A sleeveless or button down top in a soft hue or fresh white is your wisest choice in creating a lasting, elegant look.

With the busy lifestyles we all lead as modern women, we can take both relief + enjoyment in having a highly wearable + rotational working wardrobe. Gone are the days back in BC (before children) where we would splurge on a ridiculously priced, printed party dress only to find after one wear you were sick of it, then faced daily with the workwear/daywear dilemma of “nothing to wear!”

Enter Working wardrobe, a delightful combination of effortless, easy wearing pieces that work back with one another, making daily outfitting a breeze. Alleluia! With the end of the year in sight + the time to embrace fresh starts + new beginnings, its time to clean out that closet + get back to basics. The core essentials to start your new working wardrobe are 1. Denim – soft, great fitting, premium denim. 2. A classic white shirt, this macgraw top is sensational. 3. Breton everything – A soft stripe Tee + dress are pieces you will rotate weekly + will never go out of style. 4. Amazing shades 5. A lightweight trench, the chicest way to make a style statement without trying, and a must for frequent travellers.

There you have it ladies, start with the basics + you can do no wrong. Your getting ready routine will be so much more pleasant + enjoyable when you have pieces you actually want to wear, you feel amazing in + you know how to style them. xx
