Lust over Andean Collective’s Peruvian-inspired Anita Guise collection
Juxtaposing delicate floral embroidery against bold studded pinafores, the new Anita Guise clothing collection from Andean Collective is simultaneously pretty and edgy and is guaranteed to have you dreaming of Peruvian adventures with alpacas.
Byron Bay’s Andean Collective creates a swoon-worthy range of soft furnishings, clothing and accessories that combine fine fabrics with beautifully vibrant textiles and embroidery. The Anita Guise collection represents a continuation of this exotic aesthetic and offers simplistic, feminine clothing that is designed for everyday wear including lace-up mini skirts, Spanish linen dresses adorned with pretty pastel flowers, and Italian leather backpacks and bum bags.
Each piece is made with love by talented artisans from communities throughout Peru and as a result some items, such as the backpacks, have a three week turnaround time. Your patience is rewarded with a one-of-a-kind investment piece that will bring a little smile to your dial every time you see it and think of its backstory. Plus, you can feel pretty chuffed about the fact that you’re supporting women in undeveloped areas whilst preserving the ancient art of textile.
