Janessa Leone

posted 24 May 2013 by Basically Boutique

Janessa Leone is an eponymous label based out of Los Angeles. The Janessa Leone brand harkens back to a time when people saw their sartorial choices as a reflection of themselves. Each hat is made carefully by hand, a product of years of labor and skill fueled by a dedication to craftsmanship. Over time through wear, the hats mold intimately to the wearer, and become a reminder of a life well lived. Janessa Leone’s brand mission is to revive a time when people treasured clothing as something to be kept and passed down to future generations, a meaningful item that transcends its value as a mere commodity.

Janessa recalls growing up, venturing into her grandfather’s closet to try on clothes, pieces from his past, that told his entire life story: “There is an ever-present air that you embody when you put on a perennial piece of clothing; like you are a part of something bigger than you could ever imagine. That love for nostalgia, whether it is clothing, accessories, or furniture, has never escaped me. There is an undeniable poise that I possess when I wear my grandfather’s vintage hat or my grandmother’s jewelry; a poise that you can only possess by wearing something that was created with incomparable craftsmanship.”

We are so excited to bring on board one of Australia's most talented and forward thinking labels, Josh Goot. Beginning to land any day now are pieces from his Resort 13 collection. The colours are bright and fun - perfect for the upcoming season of parties and events. Here is a look at a few of our favourites dresses from the collection:


The Reptile Racer Back Dress has to be the stand out print and piece from this collection and has been spotted on celebrities such as Christine Centenera, Teresa Palmer, Nicole Pollard and Kate Waterhouse (in the lime cap sleeve colourway).


The Bubble Coral Cap Sleeve Cut Away Dress is Josh Goot's first foray into knits. Gorgeous pattern and flattering cut - what more could you want?

We just adore the colours in this gorgeous piece. The Black Reef Racer Front Mini Dress is the perfect dress for any occasion.

The Man Repeller x VEDA!

posted 25 Oct 2012 by Basically Boutique


It's no secret that the Man Repeller (aka Leandra Medine aka SUPER blogger) is a fan of VEDA leather wear. We take our fashion cues from this chic down town New Yorker even though her judgement can sometimes, well often, be questionable. We love her sense of humour and if you haven't had a chance to read her blog we recommend you take a little look-see here.

Leandra gives us a lesson in how to layer leather and we weren't suprised to see the VEDA Max Classic leather jacket in Crispy Black was the Pièce de résistance. This piece has sold out almost everywhere worldwide but we've just received a few - get in quickly because they won't stick around for long! Also check out the Max Texture Jacket in Hunter and Felix Cashmere Knit which completes any geek chic outfit. BB x

Ultra soft leather sleeves and equally soft vintage denim in the body. VEDA just keeps upping the anti!
