Beachy chic pieces made from natural materials are now strolling the shorelines thanks to Sebastian Says. The label’s latest collection, ‘A New Bohemian’, is made up of 100 per cent cotton macramé collars, leads in earthy hues, and warm merino-wool jumpers.
Founded by Suz Strampic in Elwood, Australia, and inspired by the Aussie beaches, Sebastian Says specialises in fringed-wool jumpers and vegetable-tanned leather collars that are made for blustery beach days. The label’s tanning process uses vegetable dyes on Italian leather, leaving products naturally distressed (a smart contrast to the brass detailing). They also incorporate Pinatex—a vegan-friendly leather alternative made from fibres extracted from pineapple leaves—into collars and coats, which have the soft feel of real worn leather and remain both environmentally friendly and sustainable. For a seamless finish to all outfits, get your dog’s name monogrammed on a collar of your choice. Looks like it’s time to drop the dog tag.
We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. Available for purchase here.
