Spring Racing style via our Kitte Tribe!

Spring racing has been and gone in a whirlwind of designer cocktail dresses, far too high heels, to die for headpieces and much to much champagne. Occasionally there was also the spotting of a horse and a cheeky bet or two!
What a week Spring Racing was for all of us here at Kitte! We had more Midnight Crown orders flying out the door than we could deal with! It was organised chaos and far too much fun with stylists arriving every day to dress their clients in our new collection. 
The races themselves lived up to their spectacularly high standards, and our racing week was made even better by seeing all our pieces styled to perfection by race goers!

We've collected some of our favourite snaps from across the carnival!

Get Spring Racing Ready with Kitte!

Spring Racing season is firmly in our sights, and we know that it can be difficult to not only find the perfect dress, but also the accessories to match.

So giddy up! It’s time to get the whip cracking and begin looking for the perfect accessories to set you apart come Race Day! The aim of the game is to steal the show for all the right reasons, and we have some suggestions to help you get race day ready!

Always remember there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to your Spring Racing outfit. Elegance and a touch of glamour is key, but personal style is essential. Always go for accessories which not only compliment your outfit, but which make you feel comfortable. That way, not only will you be looking good, but you will be feeling good the entire day.

For those of you looking for something extra special, our Midnight Crown is just gorgeous. Not too extravagant, but special enough to instantly draw a few gasps and envious stares. The Midnight Crown is our pick for any race goer. We guarantee the Midnight Crown will be your show stopping piece, so when it comes to your jewellery choices, keep it simple and light. The Grand Bee earrings are the perfect addition and always add a little bit of fun. 

 

If a big bold headpiece is not for you, try something elegant and sleek, like our new Princess Rebels Headpiece. A tiara with edge which will add the final touch to any outfit. Exuding subtle glamour when styled on it's own, this piece is also perfect when layering. When paired with our Queen Bee Headband these headbands become the ultimate Stakes Day statement duo. As styled by Lana Wilkinson from our recent 'Unapologetic Opulence' shoot, these two pieces combine together to create perfection. 


Bespoke jewellery will always help pull together your outfit and will definitely be noticed. A simple yet beautiful headband like this is complimented perfectly by our Princess Rebels Choker which features the matching chain detail seen on the headpiece. 

Let's not forget that the Spring Racing season is not just about amazing millinery...having the perfect clutch is essential. When looking for something to complement your entire outfit, look no further than the Crown Jewel Clutch. An oversized clutch which will hold all your race day necessities from bandaids, your iPhone and array of lipsticks, this clutch is the only choice. Featuring charms seen throughout the entire collection, this piece is subtle glamour at its best and is the perfect accompaniment to any outfit.  

 Finish off your look with a glowing tan, some perfectly tousled waves or relaxed braid and more than anything else, some comfortable shoes!

Behind the Scenes on our latest Campaign Shoot!

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'.
