Take a sneak peek behind the scenes of our new arrivals shoot.

At long last… Spring is in the air! 

This month we visited the beautiful Sydney inner-city suburb of Paddington, to shoot our latest arrivals. The Paddington reservoir is, in our minds, synonymous with Spring; every part of the landscape reflected new life, vitality and renewal. This picturesque location heralded the arrival of our latest collection, brought to life alongside chosen model of the month, Miranda Aston.

The focus of this month’s collection was accessories. We have introduced a variety of hand-crafted clutches, totes, travel bags, as well as beautifully sculpted fedora hats by designer Sarah J. Curtis. Our favourite pieces this month, hands-down, have to be the new Selina and Sally blouses. A light, crisp blouse is the number one staple piece every woman’s wardrobe needs; Selina and Sally are so cleverly designed that they’re sure to become an investment piece for seasons to come.

Check out all Bts shots below.

This month, colour has started to seep into the collection, in the form of classic pointed flats, pretty ballets & basic tee’s, to reflect the seasonal turn towards Spring. 

This month’s shoot was inspired by the Sambag woman who wishes to add zest to her winter wardrobe with intriguing prints & an array of colour whilst still remaining timeless & practical.

We took to the streets of Sydney this month to shoot our latest arrivals. Inspired by the Sambag “woman on the go” company ethos, this collection in a combination of functional yet chic dressing. Pieces you can confidently wear from day to night, comfy yet oh-so stylish. 

A navy, teal, berry, grey & khaki colour palette was integral to this collection, as it’s the perfect colour scheme to inject into your winter wardrobe. 

The styles introduced this month are edgy; we’ve toughened up the winter dressing vibe with cool leather leggings & studded sneakers, though still endeavoured to keep things classic by adding a feminine slip dress and soft ladylike ballets. 

The beautiful Isabel Simundic @izismundic made the collection come to life. Styled by Owner & Creative Director Sam Wagner.
