We’re super excited to announce the arrival of Base Range’s ‘Apotypoma’ collection. Known for their use of organic, natural or raw fibres, Base Range focus on creating pieces that have minimal impact on the environment and the wearer. Dyed without the use of toxic components and heavy metals, Base Range strives to create high quality garments using materials made to be soft, light and effortlessly wearable.

A favourite here at Monk House, this season we’ve branched out picking up some special new styles. Think loose skirts with tribal prints, waffle textured dresses with turtle necks and classic tees in soft cottons, bamboos and silks. This range is totally on the mark, using simple colours in navy, grey, off white and black they’ve created a super fresh aesthetic.

Their soft, easy to wear shapes will have you hooked, but be quick! We’re tipping they’ll run out the door. Come see the full range in-store now!

The neoprene dream team have delivered again! Witu’s latest collection ‘Ozone’ has launched in-store and online & we’re pretty smitten. 

Inspired by the deep blue sea, of crashing waves and creatures dwelling in caves, Ozone is a re-imagination of the teams classic neoprene shapes. This season however you’ll find new friends among the crowd, with subtle details make way for big changes. Petal pink bowler bags and khaki waves define a collection that we just can’t get enough of. 

We're lusting after their dreamy colour palette and let's be honest, there's a definitely Witu for you. Shop Ozone in-store or online now!

We’ve spent the last few seasons drenching ourselves with soft feathery pom-poms, but their latest Spring/Summer release ‘Gemm*’ has taken a step back from the innocent absurdity of collections past, revealing a more refined, mature aesthetic.

Small pastel, furry pom-poms hang from chains in silver and gold, bathing wrists and adorning ears with rotund beads and fine clasps. There’s something special about adorning yourself, and let’s be honest there’s still a little kid living in all of us that needs a chance to shine.

Come view the range in-store now!

As part of our involvement in Craft Victoria’s annual Craft Cubed festival we’re running a month long installation featuring Two Hills.

The brainchild of Rhiannon Smith, Two Hills is a small jewellery label based in the heart of Melbourne. Rhiannon has been working with precious metals for a number of years and has just released her highly anticipated third collection ‘Echo’. During the month of August you’ll find Rhiannon busily working on new pieces right in our very own window! Come have a peek as pieces evolve from her intimate reaction to the space. 

To coincide with her installation we will be holding a Meet the Maker evening on Thursday the 28th of August, from 6-8pm. You’ll have the unique opportunity to hear Rhiannon talk about her practices, including methods and techniques, as well as her inspirations and influences, this will be followed by time for Q&A.

If you would like to attend our Meet the Maker evening please send an RSVP to before the 25th of August, but hurry – places are limited.
