As mentioned in the previous post, the collars fold up flat for transport inside a little mint bag and will be posted within Australia for free.

A first little look at the new Alexi Freeman pieces - two lovely scarves, currently available from both Milly Carlton and Milly at Von Haus in la cité. I almost felt bad putting them under the nose of a confessed scarf-collector yesterday...

When Allys Phillips visited Von Haus recently, we had a nice little chat about the development of her jewellery label - Allys Ellen - and the endearing fact that, although she had been making jewellery ever since she could remember, it had never quite occurred to her to turn a favourite past-time into a business ... even after completing a fashion design and textiles course ... and even after people began to buy the pieces she was making to keep herself busy (after re-locating from England to Australia).
But the golden penny has finally dropped and Allys is now very, very busy - hand-making the beautiful pieces that compose her first collection. Milly Sleeping has been excited to present this range as part of our Stringing Things Together showcase throughout September, and will now house the pieces at our Carlton store (until they're sold out!) ...
In fact, although Stringing Things Together has technically closed, we've decided to bring many of the components of the show back to 157 Elgin, and present the works in a different light for a few more weeks. If you haven't yet had a chance to view the jewellery in person, please do drop by soon and try a few pieces on.

This month is destined to be one full of sweet new things ... but it is possible that we received the absolute sweetest thing on the very first day. Martha of new label Inside Outside delivered a round of collars to Milly Sleeping yesterday, and we saw fit to put them straight into the window.
There are three styles and three colour ways currently in store (with more to come) all of which look lovely and sophisticated with a range of different necklines and outfits. Each is 100% cotton and part of an edition of 50; they fold up flat and come with a neat little drawstring bag, which makes them a great gift or a delightful treat to receive in the mail...

Inside Outside Limited Ed. cotton collars are just $66 each. Mail orders will attract no postage charge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with enquiries.
It has taken me so many goes to upload these jolly images today, I feel like their presence before you is as miraculous and precarious as a house of playing cards.
Its lucky that I have so much practise building card houses for my nephew (whose sole but great pleasure in my work is the chance to blow the finished product down).
Now I know you're excited but please don't jump about and bump the table...
