P.E Nation Co-founder & Designer — Pip Edwards
"Many many gems in my cupboard have been bought from various vintage stores around the world.
From jackets, dresses, tees and my all time fave denim - it’s hard to narrow it down to one. But the best finds have definitely been in Tokyo, LA and London. I love to find vintage tees and denim."
alice McCALL Founder & Designer — Alice McCall
"I come back to my Aussie Clark pirate blouse time and time again. It’s a collector’s item and one of the inspirations I started my brand on."
SOH Head of Design — Nathan Brown
"I bought the greatest brown leather jacket at a thrift shop down in Tasmania that I lived in.
Fitted like a glove, had fur on the inside, and smelt like the 70’s."

"So many things, but our first dining table was pretty special. A lot of wonderful moments happened around it."
