AKKO (one of the ‘final five’)

Mother Maria. Stocked at Cheeks, Adelaide Street, City.
Talulah. Stocked at Bam & Juju, Wintergarden, Queen Street Mall.
Tom Gunn. Stocked at Jean Brown, Tattersall’s Arcade, Queen Street Mall.
A little sexy, a little fun, always fashionable. White Sands is quintessentially glamorous, always with an eye to fashion, and a nod to the carefree style that is so Australian. An anthology of unique and fashion forward styles. From tiny brazilian cut bikinis and beautifully shaped maillots in exclusive prints. White Sands is tipped to be one of the most glamorous, fashion forward collections to come out of Australia yet.
