Opening their first standalone retail store in Westfield Bondi Junction, the store will house each season’s entire collection along with exclusive pieces from international and Australian accessory brands, including Elvis et Moi, Reliquia, F+H Jewellery, Avec Moderation, LOQ, Atiana shoes, Lacoste sneakers and Mehry Mu bags. Designed in collaboration with architect George Livissianis, the store’s aesthetic draws influence from Sydney’s quintessential outdoor lifestyle, including light filtering through columns, luxurious materials and day beds. A feminine feel is also created through soft textures and neutral tones including the shade of 2017, millennial pink.
“We are incredibly excited to be opening our first retail concept store in Bondi Junction, providing our customer with a complete brand experience that is truly reflective of who we are,” the designers behind the brand, Bec Cooper and Bridget Yorston, told Fairfax Media.
“It’s been a dream to create a physical space that truly encapsulates our style and after 15 years of building the business, we finally feel the timing is right.”

If 2017 is anything to go by, the 70s are back in a big way. Look at the return of bell bottom pants. In recent years fashion has been pretty attached to the skinny jeans, but with celebrities like Emily Ratajkowski, Kate Hudson Gigi and Bella Hadid and channelling Cher and Farah Fawcett’s vintage style, it’s the trend in our cart this week.
The key to making the 70s style feel modern? A high-waisted fit and solid heel – be it a chunky sandal or ankle boot – will help the trousers sit properly. Keep the look minimal with a white tee, or create a statement with a ruffled shirt, oversized sweater, belted flowy shirt or sheer blouse.
