Sydney-based artist, designer and musician Annie Hamilton recently spent two months in Iceland on an artist's residency. Immersed in frosty mornings, low sunlight, isolation and incredible natural beauty, she found inspiration for her new clothing collection, Equinox.
And this week you can see it in the flesh at Annie's pop-up shop, which will be taking over Blank Space Gallery in Surry Hills. As always, the pieces feature her signature hand-illustrated prints — but, this time, their shapes, feel and intricate details come from Icelandic wildflowers. There's also a collection of silk and woollen garments to keep you warm through winter.
Every piece in Equinox is made ethically and sustainably in Australia, and is designed to last. Annie is a passionate advocate of local, ethical fashion, having co-founded Locally Made, an online platform dedicated to growers, makers, designers and menders, in 2016.
The pop-up shop will be open from 10am till 6pm between June 2 and 6.
