Hot on the heels of collections from Arnsdorf, Ellery and Aje, Konstantina Mittas is the latest designer to join the ‘Sportsgirls Like’ collaborations. The queen of avant-garde Australian design, Konstantina has earned a dedicated following for her unique and daring designs – and now the designer lends her trademark theatrical niche to a ready-to-wear range of seven garments. The range is available from Sportsgirl at Queen Adelaide Building, Queen Street Mall. Click here for store details.
Sportsgirl just keep the amazing collaborations coming! They have just launched their latest ‘likes’ collection with Melbourne designer Alpha60, and are launching a range next month with uber-cool Ellery.
The exclusive 9-piece Alpha60 range is inspired by Marchesa Luisa Casati, a now forgotten but notorious early 20th Century celeb, featuring a playful mix of luxurious fabrics and prints with t-shirts, jackets and mini-dresses. While the Ellery range is rock-infused with sharp tailoring and tones of nude, soft pink and charcoal offset against leopard print.
Available in selected Sportsgirl stores only – and yes that includes the Queen Street Mall store!
