Limedrop's Calypso Pop-Up
Limedrop, aka my favourite Australian designers and Melb-town buddies, launched their three week Sydney pop-up store last night. Held at the Grand Social's Edition concept store at 214 Crown Street, Darlinghurst with their full SS11/12 Calypso collection on offer and some limited edition pieces thrown in its a must visit for anyone in Sydney.
The calypso theme means the usually minimal Edition is now a tropical. floral paradise.
Limedrop's prints really stand out.
Fittingly (or maybe I should say randomly) Yvan Facehunter is in town as he has actually now been to all three of Limedrop's pop up store launches, which for someone who 99% of the time is not in Australia is quite the feat. Clea from Limedrop and I were joking that for the next one they should just fly him out as its tradition now. Nathan and Clea wear head to toe Limedrop as always, they actually got confused for the models in their lookbooks by Gracie Otto the other night.
Like I said Edition has become a tropical paradise.
Candice and Matt from Mother Father PR in the floral with Ash from Operator Please.
Limedrop boater hats, visors and limited edition signature print bow ties.
The lovely ladies from Capital L.
Mitch has recently moved up to Sydney from Melbourne which is awesome for me and sad for Melbourne peeps.
The bow ties are the perfect gift for that special man in your life. I've already had requests from Henry to get him one for his upcoming birthday.
Claire from MCM PR and Jackie from The Grand Social.
It was lovely to chat to fellow bloggers Jessica from Tuula Vintage and Nicole from Gary Pepper Vintage
Things got a bit floral at this point.
Everyone got in on it.
