Ensemble is a vehicle for four individual businesses and a reflection of the owners’ shared aesthetic. The shop, workshop, studio, gallery and event space houses ethical fashion designer Anny Duff of Good Studios, plant stylist Emma Sadie Thomson and Beccy Bromilow (AKA B.B. Shoemaker). It is also the permanent studio for Naomi Keyte’s Joyoga.
There’s a defined synergy between the brands, which Keyte describes as an “interweaving of values”. Every item crafted in the workshop or sold in the shop is South Australian-made – from leather goods to ceramic pots to men’s, women’s and unisex clothing.
The four overhauled the interior themselves, refitting to accommodate their individual businesses. Walls were painted, floors were ground and polished and window tinting was stripped.
The result is a beautifully calming space that captures the mood of the “slow retail” movement. It’s a chance for the makers to connect, or re-connect, with their clients face-to-face.
