Skin, Threads and Sticks

Given we’re well on our way into winter, it’s no surprise the focus on wool, cashmere, merino wool and all that is natural is back in the limelight of fashion fabrication.

One such label that puts this on such a pedestal and makes it a focus of its existence is Skin and Threads, a premium Australian brand built on the simple principle that pure and natural fabrics are the building blocks for a luxurious and casually elegant lifestyle.

Founded in 2006 by Penelope Cohen and Emma Gathercole with the first store opening its doors in 2010, the brand’s luxurious basics and understated femininity with an edginess that is hard to find, makes it a diamond in the rough.

The year 2011 saw the brand launch it’s second concept store in the prominent GPO in Melbourne, creating a new shopping destination for women who’re after something more. A third store will open its doors in Chadstone in April 2013.

With an intuitive understanding of natural materials and processes, Skin and Threads works fine merino knits, linen, recycled and organic cotton into a range of basics, denim, coats and jackets, knitwear, accessories and Italian made footwear, all of which offer something unique in both aesthetic and principle and represents the essence of Skin and Threads; casually elegant lifestyle.

We took to the Glen Harrow Cottages in Belgrave, Victoria to run around the gardens and showcase the clothes.
