Vivienne westwood

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008


Vivienne Westwood for Melissa have finally arrived, 2 styles, the flocked ultragirl(anglomania flat) in red, black and navy, and the Mary Janes (anglomania heel), the first were designed and made in leather in 2000 and were sold out in record time, they were never reissued so they don’t devalue the original, but when the time has come for a collaboration with Melissa, the shoe with molded toes is back, so don’t miss out this time and make sure you have a piece of shoe history in your wardrobe, available in Black, Blue and Honey comb, limited sizes so come in or call us for your size.

We have always hated umbrella stands, but this one we love, it is made of sponge and blue steel, it is both functional and unique,
and comes with an umbrella, so you are prepared next time the rain comes.

In all, each product must radiate such attention to quality that its price will never appear excessive.

Topple me

Saturday, March 15th, 2008


Designed by Trent Jansen, Craaaazy about this light, Trent designed this light with sustainability in mind, and he definitely achieved that, who would ever think of throwing this beautiful piece out, you have to topple the lamp to turn it on, we love the whole idea of “mistreating” the object, a take on how some beautiful precious pieces end up at a salvation army store after being treasured for years.

syd-guide2.jpg melguide2.jpg
Just launched last week, The Sydney Design Guide, (there is also a Melbourne guide), a great resource to all things design, read about new places and discover new talents, Ewan McEoin, and Vivian Stappmanns, have done a great job, and of course BOTI is in it, a great xmas present, here is a bit about it.

The Sydney design guide goes beyond the sun, sand and surf to introduce a metropolis that is home to a world- class creative community.
Conceived for the intrepid traveller and the curious local alike, this chunky little book takes readers straight to the action, featuring architecture and art tours, fashion and product walks and porfiles of the city’s most creative designers and studios, as well as unearthing the most stylish bars, restaurants and cafes across town.
