I heart the art world :)

Heading to wellington this weekend with Tautai Pacific arts trust to see the opening of Graham Fletchers Lounge Room Tribalism! love his work, read his thesis and can't wait to see the end result.

After that we will be pumping out the womens line out and then will be at Cassette Supermarkets every week.

13th June

Had a photo shoot on Monday with Devon for our online store. This morning I uploaded 21 new products including Nana Lopsey Range, velvet sweaters and owl stitch crops. It was a lot of fun, it always is with dev though. Big thanks to her and Elly (my sister) who we dragged into modeling for us.

So this means two of our three ranges which were coming out end of july, are already here and it's only just mid-june!

But see you at Cassette tomorrow?

LB says HI

Black and White Owley Owl, during our card photoshoot!
So I earlier said 3 new ranges by late July. There will definately be 3, but they will be different to what we originally entaled. With Aaron dancing his way around the states, and just to be on the safe side, we're pushing the release of our mens and womens Summer ranges back to September. Which only means we have longer to perfect it, yay!

So instead of releasing these our new ranges will be 'Homewares', of which you've had a sneak peak, 'Nana Lopsey', this includes the blanketed gonks, hottie covers and bags. Might I add she is busy sewing up a storm to keep up with demand! And the last was an unexpected venture, 'LB says HI'.

'LB says HI' is a range of hand made one off greeting cards, which shall keep on replenishing themselves. Here we take the best the of the 'lopsey boutique aesthetic' and put pen to paper. These are available now on our online store, or in person this Saturday at Cassette Super Market :)

3 NEW ranges to be released by the end of JULY

Am running round like a headless chicken trying to prepare for mid-late july when we release three new ranges! Men's and Women's Summer Range, is something to get really excited about. We've stepped up our game and have some exciting pieces coming out. It will be also be the first time we see what Aaron Nuualiitia has in store for us, which we have high expectations about since he's over in San Diego getting all inspired (good luck prestige!)

We will also see the introduction of Lopsey Homewares yay! If you liked the feel of your velvet sweater? wait till you feel our velvet cushions and mini blankets..

Here's a brief sneakpeak (excuse the shabby photography, thats why we generally hire a professional, ahhh devon :)!)

2nd June

Arrived at First Thursdays to a disaster (no rack) But with the help from a lovely stranger, we managed to get ourselves a table and a half and come up with this kinda stall. 

Good night after all.
