2011 was an opportunity to look at the sum of our work and consider our most enduring pieces- those that have transcended fashion and become classics. To this end, and to make way for the evolution of Bouvier, we have curated a collection of all-time favourite designs, yours and ours.
The Classic collection includes creations that have stood the test of time, are much loved and that personify Bouvier. A new home in the Classic collection makes these pieces forever available… Visit the Classic Collection, quintessentially Bouvier.
From the studio
A desire to re-invent and to deliver Bouvier women a fresh hit of fabulous has brought about two inspirational new collections, Ione and Sophia, both goddesses in their own right.
I’ve had so much fun in the studio introducing subtle colour to the Bouvier aesthetic, and bringing the collection ‘personalities’ to life! Inspired by a mythical Grecian sea goddess, Ione sees our signature hand-beaten silver offset with stones such as pyrite, peridot, green aventurine and golden quartz, reflecting the shifting colours of the sea. Sophia takes its sophisticated voice from screen icon Sophia Loren, circa 1962, using stones such as garnet, onyx, and bamboo coral. Ione and Sophia are winging their way to NYC as we speak…Have a sneaky peak at the new Collections
Bouvier lands … in New York
We’re thrilled to again be joining forces with renowned architect and long time friend from Palm Beach Iain Halliday, in a project that will deliver fabulous Australian design to the heart of the Big Apple. A serendipitous lunch catch-up at our local haunt, The Boat House (we recommend the bucket o’ prawns!) paved the way for this exciting collaboration and the Bouvier collections now have a permanent home in NYC. Iain has designed a showcase studio to bring edgy Australian brands to a perceptive New York market, and the USA beyond. Stay tuned for news updates as New York Fashion Week gets underway…
Bouvier hits … Gourmet Traveller
One of the most fulfilling, frustrating, and ultimately most rewarding design projects PC and I have ever embarked on is ‘Dar Rafti’. Well and truly a labour of love, Dar Rafti is our second home in Morocco; close but distant enough from the colour and action in the Medina in Fez.
PC and I first travelled to Morocco in 2006 on an unsuspecting break from living and working in Sydney. We were fortunate to fall in love with the place and the people, and our newfound friends convinced us to consider local real estate. Many negotiations and remote renovations followed, and the result is ‘Dar Rafti’, which demands many visits for leisure and pleasure and sometimes attention.
The story of Dar Rafti and its influence on Bouvier appears in the November edition of Australian Gourmet Traveller.
