Fall From Down Under











I only recently came across the wonderful Australian brand, Rittenhouse, and I quite frankly adore it. These are a few particular images from their Fall/Winter '08 collection that stood out for me. I like how the pieces and styling are essentially quite basic, however when put together they look fantastic. Here you can see wonderful examples regarding good garment construction and fit, and I find that although the collection in itself is not exactly remarkable, I could definately see myself buying a few pieces as wardrobe basics. The careful attention to detail that highlight the traditional pieces are very well done.

When looking at a collection such as this I often find myself thinking that if only a few more people would pay attention, they would learn how easy it is to dress that little bit better. The looks in themselves are not hard to put together and similar styles can be quite easily found on the high street. As such these are wonderful introductions to anyone looking to try something slightly new for autumn.


May I also take this opportunity to thank you all for your kind words and comments!! I will definately try my hardest to comment back to all of you wonderful people :) Oh, and I have also been slightly lazy, so if you would like to exchange links just let me know!

  1. Yay your back! oh and i totally agree, lots of people choose to look bad when really it's not that hard or expensive to look your best. I love this collection it is simple but thats whats great about it.
    Bye :)

  2. simple is always best, and these pieces are just that. it's funny that you should post this, as i am taking a month out from buying clothing with a view to investing in some staple, classic pieces afterwards (if i can afford them after all my course books, ugh, my education is even more expensive than my clothing habits!) just like these. i need to expand my 'capsule collection,' and the Rittenhouse silhouettes are lovely. I will certainly be taking a look!

  5. I liked the mens clothing more than I did the womens. I can even see myself wearing that mens stuff. Of course it has to be a million sizes smaller since I'm a twig lol

  9. Hope you're feeling better! That first outfit, with the little pinafore and the grey tights, is delicious...it looks exactly like something I'd wear! I love the silouettes too, kind of slouchy without being scruffy! Char x

  10. Good to hear you are on to some great posts once again. These look like well made clothes..makes me think of what one would wear in the great north east..that is in quebec and upstate NY.

  11. You've been missed.

    I love clothes that I know I could wear everyday..as these. Some of this high fashion doesn't relate to me with anything or anywhere I'd be going.

  15. So glad to see you back! That collection seems really great, especially that I'm going through some weird gray phase (I tried to go on detox, but I got a gray sweater today, so I guess it's not gonna happen just yet). And now I think I'm gonna have to find gray tights - something I haven't thought of before. Thanks ;)

  18. "When looking at a collection such as this I often find myself thinking that if only a few more people would pay attention, they would learn how easy it is to dress that little bit better."
    Yes Yes Yes!!
    I was thinking the same thing seeing the mens look. It's not ground breaking, but its simple, i wish more american men would just put more thought into what they wear.

    It's especially annoying when an american men, usu in that 35-45 range, think that just because something has a tailored fit it makes it "gay."

  19. I laughed when you put the english version. So silly. I thought it was obvious that I was a real ganster girl. Haha. So happy your back.

  27. You're baaaackk! :D
    Thank you so much for reading my last two posts, & adding me to your long list of links!

    You're right about the basics of this collection being styled into something fantastic. The grey tights have such a comfy-autumn feel, and men's plaid shirts are beauitful!

    Definitely buy some of that collection. Then post pictures :)

    peace&♥

  38. im from australia and i didnt even know them.
    ill check them out.

    thanks

  39. looks 3 & 5 are just perfect! i may have to go check these guys out, i've never even heard of them before... but then i tend to stay away from the shops they're stocked in as they're always quite pretentious & the shopgirls look at your as if to say 'what are YOU doing in here?'

    oh & that picture of chuck in your sidebar was hands-down my favourite outfit of his all last season!

  40. I love this kind of style, sometimes simple is better, it comes across as more thought about even though it's not over complicated...just perfect!!
