sydney is one of the worlds most lively cities and a place we are lucky enough to call home!! it wasn’t hard to find inspiration in our backyard playground so we headed to one of our favourite locations to shoot our iconic sydney scarf – ‘bondi’.
join us as we share a few highlights of our vibrant home town and the inspiration behind one of our newest destinations from the ‘icebergs and piña coladas’ collection.
where we stayed – qt hotel. carefully crafted within the heritage listed gowings department store and state theatre buildings, the flagship qt sydney hotel stands in the heart of sydneys cbd surrounded by art, fashion, cuisine and design. the hotel oozes character and with edgy design style referencing the buildings past, embodies quality and comfort. this boutique hotel has it all from an in-house spa to restaurants and bars.
where we ate – icebergs dining room and bar. the spectacular view is enough of a reason to head to icebergs but then there is also the expertly prepared menu that ‘reflects the depth of regional italian cuisine’ and uses the best local produce on offer. a glass of champagne, spaghetti agioli and that view equals perfection! we love this view so much we chose it for our scarf.
where to shop – our favourite shopping location is the glenmore road junction in paddington. it houses most of our favourite australian designers including sass & bide, zimmermann, bassike, camilla & marc, ginger & smart, scanlan & theodore … all in one very compact area that is not a mall. and amongst all that is jacquies – the perfect little lunch spot to stop and refuel – our favourite the sashimi salad!!!
what to explore – jump onto a ferry and head off for a day of adventure! whether in search of shops, great food, beautiful scenery or picture perfect beaches there are options for all. the ferry departs from the city with destinations including manly, rose bay, taronga zoo and more. the view from the harbour back to the city and opera house are sublime.
other adventures – visit luna park – sydneys waterfront amusement park. take a surf lesson at sydney’s famous bondi beach, walk the coastal track from bondi to bronte beaches along the picturesque coastline, visit the zoo, jump on a train to the blue mountains for a day or overnight trip.
wear it with – some of our favourite australian designers … sass and bide, zimmermann, alice mccall.
the result of our inspiration – sydney | bondi bathers – our beautiful cashmere-blend scarf featuring the serene vista of one of australias’ most iconic beaches. from the golden sands to the aqua waters this image encapsulates beauty in the colours of its natural wonder.
