Anon. Women - Icons: Diana Vreeland

Why don't you . . . take inspiration from the sartorial grace of iconic fashion editor Diana Vreeland.

Known for her wild fashion proclamations - 'Pink is the navy blue of India' - and her impeccable chic; Vreeland's personal style was always quietly elegant with a punch of pizazz. A simple shirt or top and elegant pants or skirt always accessorised with a splash of daring - oversized ebony cuffs, bone pendants always with bright red talon nails (red being her favourite colour) and the severe lacquered hair that became her signature.

Oh and don't forget to do as Vreeland and always polish the soles of your shoes for that extra bang of chic!

Face Forward

Make-up maestro Dhav Naidu teamed up with Inika Mineral Cosmetics to create a fresh sophisticated face for the Anon. Women Spring Summer collection.

"Its all about the enhancement of beauty, not recreating anything. It's definitely a woman, not a girl with a fresh face, neutral tones and no visible lines. We've highlighted the skin tone and used blends of neutral tones with a bit of lilac over the eyes. In my view, nothing should stick out with the makeup -its all about the fashion!" says Naidu.

Recreate that pretty nude lip with Inika Lipstick in Blossom - a completely vegan product that's healthy as well as beautiful.

Modern Minimalism


Clean lines, beautiful fabrics and timeless styles are the order of the season. Don't get minimal confused with unconsidered. The cut and nuance of garments really comes into play here, how the piece relates to and interacts with the body, the subtleties of fit and flow come to the fore.

O Georgia

This painting by Georgia O'Keefe is completely evocative of my inspiration for Spring Summer. The light, the sparsness, the sensual feeling of heat and open space.

Like The Boys


This season, head to your boyfriends closet for some inspiration. Blazers, tuxedo jackets, peacoats and pleat front pants all come with the nonchalant ease of your partners old worn in favorites. Simple and slouchy is the key.

Think Tank




Looking for that perfect something to wear under everything? Think Tank! Both InStyle and Marie Claire magazines have; recently featuring our bias cut silk tank tops.

A fantastic wardrobe staple - layer under a jacket for work, wear with a pair of our great linen pants for an easy weekend option, dress it up with a statement necklace or an arm full of cuffs and bangles or go nude with our champagne coloured tank under an organza coat for effortless evening attire.

You don't need to be a member of an international fashion Think Tank to think of this tank next time you need a great basic.

Spring Summer 09

With Spring just around the corner I thought I would give you a preview of our Spring Summer collection, dropping in September, look out for listing of stores near you.

An evocation of Summer – of LIGHT, AIR, SPACE and BREATH.

A modern woman who moves though the world with grace, strength and style. -clothes that reflect her life, personality and passions.

Linen, washed silk and silk jersey.

The palette – like an ombre of the summer sky. WHITE light on the horizon as day breaks, a subtle shimmer of gold – CHAMPAGNE from the sun, SLATE blue arcs overhead in the haze of the mid-day heat, temperature drops as the night falls to a sheltering sky of NAVY, deepening to a rich dense BRONZE in the darkness before dawn.

Carefully considered classics: building blocks for every woman’s wardrobe.

Pull on pants perfected – cut to be chic and modern, flat fronted or with soft tucks.

A bias tank; a silk top – subtley nuanced with shape and flow, holding and forgiving as needed.

A caftan drapes languidly around the body, belt it for business, leave it loose for louche luxury or open as a cardigan for casual comfort.

Draped dresses of a single piece of cloth wrap and fold around the body like a gentle summer breeze.

A gentle wrap and drape. A cowl like a tromp toeil. The air of soft volume. An arcing back. The gentle breeze of cloth over the body.

Sensuality, sophistication and style.

Pieces with versatility and value.

Things that women will love and want to wear.

Ben Smith Brides

After a number of inquiries after my most recent show asking about the possibility of some of the dresses as wedding dresses, I thought it might be an interesting idea to put some wedding dresses together.

The cut of each dress is based on my exploration of draping a single piece of cloth around the body to create a dress. The way it hangs, is draped and caught creates the shape in relationship to the body underneath.

The results were simple chic dresses that move around the body with grace, elegance and ease.

Like all the dresses I create these are for women who want something reflective of thier life and personality, something intelligent, thoughtful, stylish and easy.

Feel free to contact me if you want to know more.
