Hats off | Spring racing means a few things:
plenty of bubbly, frocking up, a painful attempt
to spend the day in heels on grass, something
to do with horses and, it’s one of the few
remaining occasions we can wear show-stopping
hats. So while you’re on your annual hat search
and deliberating whether bags still need to
match shoes, consider Reny Kestel.
After studying millinery at the London College
of Fashion, Reny returned to Perth to launch her
own label; which has already been on the catwalk,
capping off Blackbox Apparel’s swimwear at
Rosemount Australian Fashion Week.
Reny’s work combines traditional millinery
techniques with innovative design – making
for fantastic, sculptural works that are modern
but totally elegant. Her range includes hats,
fascinators and headpieces as well as corsages
and bridal couture designs, all designed with
intricate detail and luxurious trim. To see more
of her gorgeous work, hop online and visit
renykestel.com, or you can make an appointment
or view the collection in person by calling Reny
on 0413 308 346.

Kate Moss continues to inspire with the release
of her second collaboration with Longchamp.
Drawing on her love for all things vintage, this
collection is loaded with rich colours reminiscent
of precious stones, chain detailing and striking
shapes. We love the Neo Patch bag (right) – it simply
screams ‘hot mess’ with its clash of colours and a
variety of leathers – perfect for a luxurious weekend
getaway. Swing one on at Hunt Leather, 30 King St,
Perth, (08) 9321 8504. – Ali Sims

You know what they say: big feet mean big... ahem. Come on people, heads out of the gutter – I’m
talking about shoes. Big feet may be funny for some but if you’re a woman with larger than average
tootsies, this can be a sensitive topic. For ladies who strug gle to find shoes that fit, shoe shopping can be
a nightmare, leaving you frustrated when you have to settle on another pair of hideous loafers.
Loaf no more! There’s no need to live in the fear that every phone call will be Ronald MacDonald
asking for his shoes back; online boutique At Last Shoes caters specifically to women with feet size 11
and over who have been finding it near impossible to get their kicks.
Owner and founder Lauren Whiting knows all too well the difficulty that comes with finding shoes to
fit. At the ag e of 12, Lauren found it impossible to buy shoes for her size 13 feet. Limited to only thongs
and open sandals so that her toes could hang over the edge, the dream of having an endless amount of
beautiful shoes became a reality when she launched At Last Shoes in 2007.
The website has a hug e selection of glamorous heels, casual flats and winter boots made in Italy, and
some even designed and made in Australia by Lauren herself. With so many styles on offer to suit a range
of tastes, At Last Shoes will have you jumping for joy. atlastshoes.com .au delivers Australia wide so with only a
few clicks you ar e on your way to shoe heaven.
