This week’s window is a lemon & lime buffet! Such a visual zinger, prompting cars to halt and camera phones to come out. We take ours with a twist of lime, how about you?

Old money

Some things just get better with time. Cheese, wine, and in our opinion, Louis Vuitton. The leather ages so well, becoming the most beautiful honey brown.  This Voyage briefcase is a great example of LV maturity. It does have some issues though, but who doesn’t? It has been priced accordingly. Measures 16″x 12″x 2.25″ Sold. Please contact us for more details.

Gianni’s Greek

Friday, May 25th, 2012

We have had some incredible Gianni Versace pieces come through the doors, and today is no exception.  From the early 1990’s we have a deep chocolate brown leather belt with substantial gold Greek key links. Your head may expand as you are flooded with compliments wearing this! Thank goodness it’s such heavy hardware, it will come in handy to keep you grounded. Measures 36″ in length. Please contact us for more details.

This week’s window is a mixture of rich golds and burnt apricot. How incredible is the crochet raffia dress on the left? Have a zoom on in, won’t you?

The “bouquets” from our last window got swept up rather quickly, so it’s bonus time! A new window, four days early. We don’t expect this one to last long either, so let’s see if we can go into double bonus round, shall we?

Dior+Roger=rare beauty

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

We are fortunate enough to be able to present to you a rare find! A late 1940’s-early 1950’s Dior gorgeous emerald and clear crystal demi-parure. This set is from before Dior started to mass produce his jewellery. He used the Maison Francis Winter to collaborate with and create jewellery for his couture collections. The necklace and earrings are both marked Made in France, and would have been designed by Roger Jean-Pierre. The necklace measures 16″ in length with the centre drop being 3.1/4″ (from top to bottom). The earrings are 1.1/8″ by 1″. In pristine condition. Comes with it’s original Dior box. Please contact us for more details. Sold

So mother’s day is approaching, are you ready?  She did spend years being pregnant with you and days in labour (or so she says). Here’s our version of the bouquet! Nothing says ‘thanks for birthing me’ like a gift from The Cat’s Meow!
