ETA 21st DECEMBER 2009
Please contact the store for pre-order.

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


All photos taken in natural light. The Royal is a saturated bright royal blue with purple undertones. The Cyclade reminds us of colbalt from a previous season - a medium blue with strong green undertones- again a very saturated strong colour. The tomato is almost identical to some SS09 Manadarins (there was a lot of variation in this colour but this tomato is a brighter orange). Snag/Red is a beautiful true red - there is neither a strong warm orange nor cool blue tone so we would say it is right in the middle, a perfectly neutral tone. The Castagna is a deep chestnyt brown - leather on the colour is outstanding - it is thick and chewy.

New styles include the VELO is is about the width of the City but with a long strap and more height in the body. A very practical bag, perfect for those who wanted the city in a messenger style.

Part-time for the first time comes in Giant Covered Leather Hardware.

“Smart and sumptuous.”

Wall street Journal

"Watching the movie is a little like gorging on chocolate and Champagne until that queasy moment arrives when you realize you’ve consumed far too much."

The New York Times

“This enthralling film is an endearingly intimate portrait. Splendidly eye-filling… As seductive and glamorous as high fashion itself.”

Film Journal International

"This up-close portrait delivers all the runway glamor and backstage gossip that fashionistas crave, yet it's also unexpectedly poignant."

Maloles - Shoes and Bags

Maloles Antignac launched her eponymous collection in 2004 with the introduction of her signature ballerina flats. The "Georges" the "Zoe" and the "Safir" are now all classics which are updated each season in different leathers and details.

Each piece is made using an artisan shoemaking practice called "Sacchetto", a form of craftsmanship that offers a glove-like construction to envelop the foot giving more agility to the shoes - so much that front of the shoe can be bent, so it will move in every direction to fit the flexibility of the foot. Each one is hand-stitched on both the interior and exterior for utmost durability, and the gold stitched sole gives an decorative and elegant touch to all the Sacchetto styles.

This season we have the Georges flat as well as the Safir in the new metal tonal studded leather. There is also a large clutch with this studded detailing. Gorgeous, luxurious and comfortable, the studded detailing is subtle but stunning.

Another unique and gorgeous piece from Maloles is the over sized Orchid Clutch in goat leather with orchid-embossed detail. The leather covered 3D look is a strong look for next season. Available in black or navy. AUD$650
