Kuwaii’s First Store
Floral fantasia and femininity abounds at the local label’s first boutique in Brunswick.
While Kuwaii is not an ‘eco-label’ as such, it does promote ethical design techniques, with garments made locally, using sustainable, quality fabrics including silks, cottons and linens. The label has recently expanded to include a cute, sleekly designed range of shoes made from stock leather remnants.
The fit-out of the store came courtesy of master florist and interior whiz Cecilia Fox, whose pretty aesthetic – complete with floral bouquets and astro-turf – happily compliments Barber’s designs.
In addition to the clothes and shoes, the store also offers a carefully sourced selection of vintage jewellery and a small range from the likes of upcoming jewellery designer Anna Varendorff.
