Spell x Splice Boutique Welcome ‘Cactus Rose’ November ’14
Photo Diary by Mel Carrero (instagram @melcarrero_)

The divine Splice Boutique, one of our very first retailers, has been bringing Spell to the lovely women of Sydney’s northern beaches for years, and in the process, creating a pretty wild little Spell following north of the bridge. Spelly & Lizzy wanted to give back to Marisa (the owner of Splice), her lovely team and all their gorgeous customers for their ongoing support of the brand, and what better way to do so then to welcome our November ’14 collection ‘Cactus Rose’ into their stores with a lovely Spring soiree.

We kicked off the perfect spring Sydney evening with a sublime lime, pomegranate & mint cocktail in the fairy lit courtyard of their Newport store. Our spring collection sitting perfectly on rustic wood racks, showcasing a few exclusive Spell x Splice pieces – our Wild Ones Gown in Amber & Desert Rose Playsuit in Blush – available to girls exclusively on the night. It was a Spell frenzy with girls trying piece after piece of floaty leopard, cactus floral and layered crochet while ethereal gypsy folk artists Mylee Grace & Emma sung under the stars.

Among the laughter, the champagne, the sea of ever-beautiful Spell prints on flowing fabric, we snacked on the most decadent array of eats by Belinda Black and guests were thanked with one of her signature (mouth watering!!) home made marshmallows (a handful came home all the way home to Byron with me!). It was sad saying goodbye to what was the perfect evening. So, to the girls of Splice Boutique and all your simply gorgeous customers, thank you a million for your on going support, you girls light up our world!

Huge thank you to Mel Carerro (we love you babe!!) for flying all the way down from Byron Bay to take pics for us on the night! Thank you Zubi Cafe  for use of your gorgeous courtyard! And thank you Romantic Movement for such a rustic and romantic bar set up on the night!

So, shoot day. There’s hair and makeup and a million little bottles of product everywhere, a flurry of outfits being steamed and shuffled, a photographer squinting into the sun, designer breathing in inspiration and breathing out the hecticness of it all, there are runners, endless cofffees and coconuts, there’s a muse trying to go into her quiet place, and there’s usually Stevie Nicks crackling out of Spell’s iphone… So you can imagine it’s hard to remember to stop and capture some film during the moments of chaos. But amazingly, during this shoot, Ali Mitton did!

I mentioned before on the blog post of this shoot (HERE) that this day was a pretty impromptu shoot – we decided to try to make this happen the day before the shoot, and thanks to the quick and magic hands of ‘producer extraordinaire’ Michaela, we were able to! So it’s pretty amazing that in the chaos Ali was able to capture these moments where Muse, Designer and Photographer came together and made a bit of gold.

Big thanks to European musicians Oskar Schuster and Possimiste (instagram @dear_utopia and @possimiste) for allowing us to use your music on this clip… it’s so dreamy and captures the magic on that beach perfectly!

Sundowner.

Cactus Rose Collection Launch
Spell Boutique Byron Bay, October 2014
Photography Carly Brown

It’s been over a year since we’ve had a little shindig at our Byron Bay store, so we thought that the launch of our Cactus Rose Collection was the perfect excuse to gather with friends and lovely customers and enjoy some blood orange, agave and lime infused sun-downers.

As well as taking a moment to celebrate the collection launch and look back over our shoulders at a wonderful, inspiring year, it was also an evening to give back to some of the beautiful customers who visit us year round, and who remind us constantly who we’re designing for! It was so wonderful to see them shopping with a lovely cocktail in hand and a big smile on their face! We had 50 Spell gift bags to give away and they got snapped up pretty fast… they had a few treats from Spell in there as well as some little gifts from iconic local brands like Byron Bay Coffee Company, Byron Bay Cookies, Eco Minerals and Naked Treaties,.

Local food fave Top Shop put on a stunning spread of local nibbles, and the boys from Roadhouse dished up gorgeous cocktails in crystal glasswear (provided to us by a gorgeous bespoke party hire company called Hampton Event Hire). We’d met up with the boys from Roady a few weeks prior to invent our own ‘cactus rose inspired‘ cocktail especially for the night (vodka, triple sec, agave syrup, blood orange, lime and a bright orange nasturtium in each glass yummm). You can see by the big, smiling group photo (last pic) that everyone had a pretty lovely night! (Oh and I’m not in the pic because I had to go home early to breastfeed my little poppet down, but Spelly was there to represent!)

Biggest, hugest, ‘arms-spread-wide-open’ thanks to our girls Jaimi-Lee and Emma who pulled the night together, and to all the gorgeous local peeps who joined us on the night!
