Three Australian Textile Labels Pop Up In Albert Park!

5th February, 2020

Australian labels Købn, Aestas + Kerrin are all in one spot for a late summer pop up.

This Wednesday, three Australian labels will launch Curated Collective, a joint pop-up space in Albert Park dedicated to celebrating a casual, curated Australian style.

Købn, Aestas and Kerrin are three Melbourne-based designers with ‘an appreciation of good design and a love of the Australian way of life’. As summer enters its final month, the designers intend the space to be a celebration of local luxury design.

Each label prioritises craftsmanship and a transparent supply chain. Aestas’ gold-plated jewellery designed on the Mornington Peninsula and handmade in Jaipur will sit alongside its sustainably produced, earthy-toned apparel. A selection of Købn’s architecture-inspired towels crafted in Turkey (which the TDF team can personally attest to the brilliance of!) will also be for sale alongside Kerrin’s casual menswear that reflects and embraces the Australian lifestyle.

The pop-up will run from February 5th until the end of March.

Curated Collective Pop Up
February 5th – March 31st
9am-5.30pm
194 Bridport Street
Albert Park, Victoria
