The la­bel rich in retro makes wall­pa­per fash­ion­able again

Central and North Burnett Times - - CLOSET -

NINE Lives Bazaar is what years of be­ing ad­dicted to op-shop­ping looks like. The fashion la­bel with a 1970s soul is the love child of best mates Rose Sadleir and Vanessa Satch­well.’

“We had both amassed a pretty im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of vin­tage clothes in our garages,” Rose said.

“We de­cided these pieces needed to find a new home where they could be loved, so we started ped­dling our wares at the lo­cal Vil­lage Mar­kets un­der the ban­ner Nine Lives Bazaar.” But it wasn’t long be­fore the pair’s thrift-store sup­ply dwin­dled. “They say the best ideas are the ones that solve a prob­lem, so we de­cided to take mat­ters into our own hands and cre­ate a range of cloth­ing that was whole­heart­edly in­spired by the 1970s … ex­cept this time around we wanted to make sure they felt a lit­tle softer and fit a whole lot bet­ter,” Rose said.

Nine Lives’ lat­est col­lec­tion, Har­lequin Jewel, re­ceived a stag­ger­ing re­sponse when it was launched last week.

“In less than one week we sold more than a third of the col­lec­tion. In­spired by 1970s wall­pa­per, it’s a strik­ingly rich range that’s com­plete with bold cuts and vivid colour­ways,” Rose said.
