This week New Zealand designer Brooke Barrett, launches two new collections our wild hearts have been waiting for!
A sustainable new range of everyday pieces made from natural Eucalyptus fibres, alongside a dreamy new range of woollen felt hats. With soft hues of clay, ivory, and cactus, each style is a modern take on the most beloved hat of past times, the woollen felt fedora – the must have accessory for the wanderlust bride. Earthen occasion wear styles to tie together your winter looks and organic tones inspired by the dusky desert sunset.
“Sun flares through a vintage lens.
As we run wild through the overgrown fields.
The savour of sweet musky hay and warm leather,
The sultry breeze sweeps our hair across our sunkissed cheeks.
Laying in that same dusty grass,
While the sun sets and the crickets sing.”
– BROOKE BARRETT
Created to provide eternal belongings for your forever wardrobe, celebrating the simplicity of daily rituals, light and movement – and they have just released not one but two collections this week!
“Over the last two years, we have extensively trialled and tested the longevity of our fibre selection, wearing and washing each style and adapting where needed to guarantee eternal wear, not just for special occasions but within everyday environments. Our seasonless range offers ultimate elegance, simplicity and comfort.”
At BROOKE BARRETT, we love to work with natural fibres. Our latest collection of everyday wear is made from certified Lenzing Tencel and manufactured from the wood and cellulose of sustainably harvested Eucalyptus trees. This adaptable fibre is known for its exceptional softness and high breathability while remaining skin-friendly.
“We’ve also just launched our new range of woollen felt hats, each style a modern take on the most beloved hat of past times, the woollen felt fedora. But these haven’t been created to be just a hat; they’re a feeling – with durability to last the days most wandered. Our hats are unisex, and each style has an internal adjustable band to fit even the most petite sizes, adaptable for each wearer and its environment.”
In warming, desert-like tones such as ‘desert bloom’, ‘clay’, ‘sand’, ‘ivory’ and ‘cactus’, our Woollen felt hats teamed with our Eucalyptus collection are essential, seasonless additions to every wardrobe.
We love the transparency this collection is based upon, with sustainable materials and sourcing, a movement we can all get behind. You can see Brooke Barrett’s latest collections, along with her ceremonial brand Ivory Edit gracing the Wild Hearts Runway in Auckland this September. Guests also have the chance to meet Brooke in person at our Wild Hearts Wedding Fair…for tickets pop over to our event page HERE.
