Everytime I receive an invitation to a Claire Inc
pop up or collection launch, I jump at the chance to be able to dive into the guaranteed treasure trove of designer vintage goodies. The woman behind the brand of Claire Inc is the amazing (and super adorable) Belinda Humphris is the brillance behind all the amazing designer and vintage finds on her store. The 2013 collection titled Pills Thrills
showcased in an exclusive one night only on Wednesday evening at Sydney’s China Heights Gallery featuring art installation collaboration with Georgia Perry alongside a impressive collection of designer wears curated and compiled from the 80s and 90s including Moschino, Kenzo, Chanel, Versace, Karl Lagerfeld and Issey Miyake to name a few.
The launch eventually transformed into an impromptu fun fair with fashion revellers playing dress ups in pieces that took their fancy – the vibe definitely was exhilarating as everyone at the launch all hold in the same high regard and genuine love for damn good designer pieces. It basically was a room filled with fashionistas ooo-ing and ahhing at what fellow shoppers tried on and managed to prepurchase. There was no craziness or snatching rather encouragement and enthusiasm – which is a pleasant change to the standard press preview shopping evenings. I managed to splurge on a Moschino pearl and leather bow necklace as well as a pair of Kenzo rose drop earrings (as pictured) and I can’t be happier with my new additions!
