Good things happen when fashion people come together. When Perth fashion blogger Andrea Tonkin of AndAndrea teamed up with Bec Davies and Jules Stanley of popular Shenton Park boutique Peachy, the result was the Everyday Cool Shirt. It’s a black or white oversized loose-fitting garment that can be worn year-round.
“We were catching up one day and started talking about how we all wanted a casual shirt that was oversized, comfortable and easy to throw on, but it just didn’t exist,” says Tonkin. “When I style people, I hear their concerns. They all want stylish, everyday pieces that aren’t complicated.”
As well as her styling workshops, Tonkin also periodically runs her AndAndrea online pop-up fashion store. She’s been releasing small capsule collections since 2015.
“I design my pieces with my team in very limited numbers and they sell out in minutes,” says Tonkin. “There is no set month that I release my pieces, because fashion and the seasons are changing so frequently. I don’t follow the rules of retail.”
The Everyday Cool Shirt is available from Peachy, 204 Nicholson Road, Shenton Park, 0418 656 307, for $199.
