You’ve got two days to pop into the Sarah Conners and Kholo pop-up, and it’s worth the drive to Hawthorn East. The two Melbourne labels bring together their own worlds in the creative setting of Sarah Conners’ studio shop at 604 Burwood Road, and if you’re yet to find the perfect Christmas Day outfit or those last few stocking fillers – you’ll be able to do both in the one store.
Sarah’s self-titled label is known Melbourne-wide for its quality craftsmanship and unique designs, and the latest range answers to every woman’s handbag need with statement cross-body bags, everyday totes and versatile weekend pouches. Drawing on texture and colour for inspiration, Sarah designs with practicality in mind, and each piece is finished by hand with embellishments, tassels or hand painting for a distinct yet simple touch.
The latest collection from Kholo is every bit as lust-worthy and entirely complimentary. Designer Karishma Kasabia has collaborated with Supinthorn Saengsukyen to create a range of wearable textile prints in flattering silhouettes, with pink blooming buds, sprouting daisies and sweet buttercups. Karishma’s love of all things Spring shines through, and her adoration for delicate beaded details and impeccable tailoring make this collection her most wearable yet.
Support your local labels and pop into this pop-up before it closes on 23rd December.
