Skin and Threads is the result of Penelope Cohen and Emma Gathercole’s singular vision to create modern, polished basics for those who value style, quality and the environment.

Skin and Threads are at the forefront of the new wave of retail. With an already well-established online presence, the store has been designed to be "a welcoming space, resembling a home rather than a retail store.” And it’s likely that as the trend for brand ‘happenings’ and experiences grows we’ll start to see more labels following Skin and Threads’ lead by treating their spaces like exhibits and interactive zones and leaving the business end of the deal to increasingly take place online or through specially designed apps for use on your phone.

In addition to the Armadale store, intimate boutiques can now be found at Chadstone, Little Collins street and Emporium where shoppers are made to feel at home amidst the hectic hubbub of the shopping centres. Leaf through the duo’s latest range of denim, coats, jackets, knitwear, accessories and Italian-made footwear made solely with pure and natural fabrics. The colour scheme is a welcome deviation from the darker winter shades for charcoals and greys are anchored by splashes of citrus, pink, olive, raspberry and jade.
