10 MAR - 2021

2020 brought the sweatpant co-ord back into style, and at the beginning, I was pretty happy and comfortable in my new second-skin.

I came to the realisation that I had lowered the cost-per-wear of my new track pants, yet hadn't even reached for the new parcel that housed a brand new pair of Victoria Beckham pants. Alarm bells. I was getting just a little too comfortable.

Just because we can’t travel to the likes of Paddington, Fifth Avenue or Oxford Street, it doesn’t mean we can’t virtually shop international style. Just a simple click, a small cry from your credit card and you’ll be saying ‘no’ to takeaways and hello to the ‘real world’.

Our love affair with Melbourne based Boskemper has only just begun. The pieces are effortless, yet distinctive that are designed to be worn. Flirtatious elements of ruffles and bows pair perfectly with designer Kirsty Irwin’s use of structure throughout the range.
