The ‘Instagram Braid’
We know we have all seen this one before, the perfect boho inspired braid. Anyone has has managed to master this whimsical creation has created an Instagram bloggers dream.
Follow the video for an up close look as to how easy this creation truly is! The final result will never be the same, and allows you to let your creativity flow. To finish off team this look with an intricate Kitte Crown.
The Casual Bun
The casual bun is as all females out there know, anything but casual. Hours of teasing, pulling, and hair spray for the perfect 'casual yet chic' look. Oh, the joys of pre-event preparation…
The relaxed bun has been simplified and styled to perfection, pair with a detailed headband for a sophisticated take on the 'Headwear' trend.
A day at the races is a long one, so make sure to think of all the elements before testing your luck trackside.
A slick pony is for those who like everything in place. If Melbourne produces one of it’s weather specialities, 40 degrees or 15 degrees (who knows) a slick pony will work well either way.
Let your headpiece shine and do all the talking with this look going for height and volume like our Rising Sun headband.
Classic curls with a modern twist.
Classic, soft curls add romance and glamour to an outfit with ease and are a staple amongst the Cup Day crowd. Pair with a bold headpiece or fascinator, such as the Wild Grandeur Headpiece featured here, for a chic edge.
The 90’s, often referred to as the decade that style forgot. However, it would be difficult to realise with the sudden resurgence of 90’s trends stomping down the Demkiw Premium runway and into our wardrobes.
Melbourne Fashion Festival became a testament to the 90’s with the bum bag making a dominant high fashion return. Here at Kitte we must say that we are well and truly on board with the bum bag trend, and loved the pairing of our Kitte jewels with the latest sports luxe movement. The style created was sleek and powerful, and demanded audience attention right away.
In these busy times where two hands are sometimes not enough to get everything important done in one day, the bum bag is essentially the millennials ultimate addition to their everyday activities. We know we will be embracing this one time daggy fashion trend as our go to time saver this spring.
Not only for women, Ella Murphy styled an array of Kitte pieces at the Menswear Garage Runway Show. The Kitte range added a softness to the ‘grittier’ menswear collection allowing Ella Murphy to create a fresh take on the styling of traditionally feminine pieces. The leather Kitte chokers and statement earrings combined with berets and fitted blazers create a unisex style achievable by anyone ready to embrace the fashion forward trend.
We always love seeing one of our favourite style influencers, Rozalia Russian, and her take on the latest trends for the upcoming season.
Recently featured in Rozalia’s blog, ‘Spotlight On’, we have a sneak peek for you into our upcoming collection, ‘Jagger’.
Rozalia has styled our new staff favourite, the ‘Modern Lover’ earrings effortlessly with a classic Camilla & Marc tailored suit. Combining perfectly to create a look that can easily shift from day to night, the simplicity of our Modern Lover chain earrings and the classic blazer cut are a match made.
Don’t even get us started on those ahhh-mazing shoes. We’ll start saving now!
The Modern Lover earrings are a nostalgic throwback to the classic chain jewellery seen and worn everywhere throughout the 90’s.
Focusing on the beauty and detail of the chain and clasp componentry themselves, the Modern Lover earrings are timeless, simple and classic.
A piece that will never go out of style, let the Modern Lover earrings be the next ‘must have’ accessory in your jewellry collection.
Available now for pre-order!

It's a wrap.
Our brand new range, 'Unapologetic Opulence' has been shot, and we could not be happier. Our biggest photo shoot ever became even more amazing than we could have hoped for.
With our dream team on hand, stylist Lana Wilkinson, H & MU Artist Jade Kisnorbo and our favourite photographer Marnie Haddad ready to bring the Kitte collection to life. We were also lucky enough to have Alice Morgan, one of Australia's top models and current Kitte dream girl booked!
As always on shoot day, we all arrived ready to go, full of nervous energy, and thankful that Melbourne had decided to show that is was still capable of producing sunlight in the middle of a freezing winter
Photographer Marnie had scoped the city for the perfect location to shoot our lavish new range, and she DELIVERED. We found ourselves shooting inside an under construction 18th century mansion.
After the customary inspection of every single room, the standard Snapchat brigade began as we all wandered around trying to capture the ultimate scenic Snapchat story moment. There also may have been one or two (or 20) shameless selfies taken….
But far more importantly, having finished our social media storm we got to work. From the eccentric pink bathroom, to the insanely grand living room or the piano room with the ridiculously extravagant ceiling, we could not have been more spoilt for choice.
Although stunning, our mansion certainly had not moved onto the heating system segment of its grand reconstruction, with everyone but Alice who was ever the professional (a very freezing professional) looking a little puffier than usual thanks to the many layers being worn.
Heating was definitely missed, but our home for the day did however come with a complimentary miniature pony which certainly made things entertaining. A miniature pony is very cute, but a miniature pony invasion in the middle of a photo shoot is a sight to see. Especially a pony chasing around a photographers miniature pug.
Moving on from our mid morning pony escapade, we were able to watch Alice bring our jewellery to life.
Lana's stunning outfit choices made our collection look beyond amazing, and had the whole Kitte team pretty excited to see the final shots.
It was a day full of miniature pony escapades, endless jewellery changes and a ridiculous amount of instant coffee . Without doubt we left exhausted and freezing, but excited about seeing our range styled and living up to its name.
Every shot was simply 'Unapologetically Opulent'.
