ECO | MONO

 

 

At Lois Hazel HQ we are firm believers in slow, responsible and thoughtful fashion. It shouldn't be up to the environment or garment workers, to wear the cost of great style. 

It is for these reasons and many more that Lois Hazel is thrilled to announce our newest online stockist, Eco | Mono! Eco | Mono is a blog turned sustainable online retailer, featuring stunning monochromatic pieces from local and international designers!

The eco Mono online store will feature entirely black, white and grey pieces making them all wardrobe staples that can we worn again and again (quality not quantity!) 

This incredible online platform launched March 1st,  so be sure to head over and check out the awesome selection of designers, and sleep well knowing you are supporting a sustainable fashion initiative.  In the wise words of Vivienne Westwood, buy less choose well (choose Eco |Mono!)

Float AW17 is here!

Lois Hazel is thrilled to introduce to you our 2017 Autumn/ Winter collection, Float. 

The inspiration for Float comes largely from the designers time spent interning with Amsterdam based textile artist, Marianne Kemp.  http://www.horsehairweaving.com/ 

The images below show one of the projects they worked on together, from sitting down designing the fabric, weaving it, pattern making then making the final garment. 

 

Lois was fascinated by the intricacies of the weaving process, being able to work so closely with the entire process of producing a garment was truly inspirational. Seeing the way all the warp threads were delicately and precisely waiting for the weft thread to be woven through; Floating there, waiting to unify the whole structure. For Lois, it was the small intricate details that made up the beauty of the final product. The contrast between the loose threads and the solid fabric just sitting next to one another. 

Looking at Float as a final product, it is easy to see how seamlessly each element of the garments are individually and intricately designed, while disrupted, come together to create elegant and wearable pieces.

Our first drop of Float launches tomorrow at the CTF pop up shop at L1 studios (Level 1, 377 Little Bourke St), which is open till sunday:

Thursday: 12pm - 5pm
Friday: 10am - 7pm
Saturday: 10am - 6pm
Sunday: 10am - 4m

then launches online on the 13th of March!  We are thrilled to showcase this collection to you, our wonderful customers!

Meet Lois Hazel!

On the Birthday of our brands wonderful creator, we thought it was high time you got to know the lovely lady a little better.

Lois launched her self titled brand after returning from New York and Amsterdam where she interned with Marchesa and Iris Van Herpen. She wanted to create a brand that had the same design integrity in its creative process and similar focus on local collaboration as the brands she worked with overseas. Having studied at RMIT and worked within the local fashion industry she decided to return to Melbourne to establish the brand rather than working out of a more established fashion capital - She believed that she could create a business that held it's own alongside international brands while championing the resources and knowledge available within Australia.

When our wonderful designer isn't hard at work creating; She loves to spend time with her husband Felix and little pup Sara chilling out at home binging reality TV shows, Married at First Sight anyone?  Lois loves cruising the Melbourne café scene, hello Avocado on toast with Fetta; and Finally  when she isn't doing any of those things, she works at the Fabric store on Brunswick street! (where does she find the time!)

Happy Birthday Lois!!!
