Come out come out wherever you are and meet the ‘Wallace Girls’ who fell from a star.  They fell from the sky, they fell very far, and Love in the Afternoon they say is the name of their star.  They bring you good news, so haven’t you heard, when they fell out of Love in the Afternoon, a miracle occurred.

The ‘Wallace Girls’ rocketed through time on a retro-futuristic, kaleidoscopic journey somewhere over the rainbow. The collection ‘Retrospectrum’ took a deconstructed, and reinvented retrospective look at all of WallacePlayford’s collections to date, intermixed with carefully curated vintage pieces from Vintage Lifestyle Shop ‘Love in the Afternoon’. The fun, and cheeky collection was a whirlwind of fashion, colour, pattern and style, as only WallacePlayford can do.

All pieces from the collection are now available at Love in the Afternoon! 320 James Street North, Hamilton.

Shop Hours: Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm, Sunday 12am to 4pm

James Street SuperCrawl

With three Art Crawls under their belt, or should we say tightly bound waist corsets, vintage vixens Katherine Laird & Jennifer Murtagh, owners of vintage lifestyle shop Love in the Afternoon,  and designer duo behind vintage inspired couture label WallacePlayford, are pulling out all the stops for Super Crawl.

Together with other local designers from Hamilton’s thriving artist community on James North, Love in the Afternoon will be putting on quite a show. A runway collection that is sure to knock your socks off. The collection ‘Retrospectrum’ takes a deconstructed, and reinvented retrospective look at all of WallacePlayford’s collections to date. Get ready to rocket through time on a retro-futuristic, kaleidoscopic rainbow as we travel through a whirlwind of fashion, colour, pattern and style, as only WallacePlayford can do.

 ‘In the end it doesn’t really feel like |FAT| without seeing what the girls from WallacePlayford have in store for us, with the shows over for this season we are forced to wait with bated breath until we see what these designers bring to the runway next.’ – Josh Cawston
