Once upon a twisted time…

The Teddy Bear’s Picnic is a series of art works which place a sinister twist to popular fairytale characters.

Within this world, Gretal discovers something more delicious than candy, Little Red Hiding Hood undergoes a ghastly transformation and Repunzel uses her long, golden locks to commit atrocious acts.

It is a world where button fetishes are contagious, childhood nursery rhymes are interwoven with macabre themes and happily ever after is anything but.

Based on the Teddy Bear’s Picnic series comes an exciting collaboration from the imagination of artist Lang Leav (Akina), and the talent of jeweller Zoe Sernack (ZM925).

The world of Akina lends a whimsical charm to the striking nature and popularity of Zoe’s work and the ZM925 collection.

Born from this very special meeting are miniature works of art, tiny silver charms worn close to the hearts of fairy tale villains far and wide.

Each fairytale charm features a movable head and comes tucked away in their own exquisite themed packaging, designed and handmade by Lang Leav.

There are 3 limited edition charms available including Little Miss Liliput, Little Red Riding Hood and Little Matchbox Girl, for $110 each.

Buy online at www.zm925.com and don’t miss the story on each of these little villains at www.akina.com !

"Porphyria, The Velvet Cherry & The Ectoplasmic Manor" - SQ Launch

SQ is the thrilling new label from the creative brains and talent behind popular Australian fashion label MyPetsQuare.

The first season showcases a collection oozing maturity, confidence and sensuality. It has an innate persona which draws on sensations and ambitions, crafted together with the ideas of an evolving designer.

Finding charm and inspiration in haunted mansions, SQ is the overwhelming feeling of awe you get when you step inside.

The ectoplasmic energy you sense sending shivers up your spine pushing you forward to explore further.

The collection features luxurious silk crepe, stretch silk and high quality jersey in deep reds, frosty blues and greys that are combined with smoky florals and gothic black lace.

The result is a lavish combination of sinuous sheer dresses and feminine shirts mixed back with leather high waisted skirts and corset style tops.

Men’s jackets and pants form a small but competent part of this new collection.

SQ is the aspiration to succeed in what you dream, and the fantasy of what it might be like to live in that reality.
