Label to Watch: Scanlan & Theodore

Scanlan & Theodore is an Australian label that smartly garnered some press recently by using model and designer Erin Wasson in their latest lookbook - I know that's how I heard about them! Shot by famed photog Nan Goldin, the pictures were so moody glam, I immediately decided to learn more about the brand!Even though they've been around for more than 20 years and celebrities such as Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Ashley Olsen have wore them, it was difficult to find much info! They seem to have a mostly feminine aesthetic, using delicate fabrics and lots of draping. Lots of great prints, most recently abstract tie dyes, and slouchy silhouettes that add a grungy edge, reminding me a bit of Charlotte Ronson.

I can usually find international brands online, but right now all I got is eBay! Is Australian trying to keep this gem of a label their little secret?
