The Matilda Dress is a delicate, feminine, midi length dress in light weight 100% Silk Chiffon.
This dreamy 1930s inspired dress features a wide V neckline and flattering ruching through the centre front, back, side and also on the longer line sleeves.
It could be perfect for your next Tango (like with Pacino in Scent of a Woman).
The delicious Biscotti toned spotted silk was sourced from dead stock fabric making this another mindful purchase.
The Matilda comes with a complimentary midi length slip dress in chocolate brown 100% Cupro which can also be worn as a dress on it's own!
We make each piece in our Ethical Clothing Australia certified factory located in Melbourne. The Matilda Dress is lovingly sewn by one of our incredible machinists that have over 20 years industry experience.
The Memorable Sounds of Ennio Morricone
Think about how you feel when you happen to hear a piece of music from a film that moved you? It can take you right back there in seconds.
The passing of the talented Italian composer Ennio Morricone reminds us to revisit some of the incredible films that he wrote scores for like the emotionally charged 1988 classic Cinema Paradiso, the spaghetti westerns A Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly plus Brian De Palma's 1988 gangster hit starring Kevin Costner, Sean Connery and Robert de Niro, The Untouchables.
Ennio wrote over 400 scores over his career. That's a lot of memorable feels!
Superpositions by Damiano Bertoli
If you've ever had the pleasure of watching 60s or 70s Italian television, we're sure you'll enjoy Damiano Bertoli's latest exhibition called Superpositions which has just opened at the Brunswick home of Neon Parc The Melbourne based artist captures faces from counter culture from this era and compares them with the faces of ancient Rome via classical statues, the pop stars of their day. He has layered the imagery to great affect allowing us to compare the glamorous icons crossing 2000 years.
The exhibition featuring photographic work and a fantastic video piece debuted in London at Mackintosh Lane in November last year is showing now at Neon Parc until August 8. For more details, visit the gallery here.

We have another delicious, limited edition colour way in our new Sloane Jumper and it's called Ochre.
Where's the paella? Order me a Laksa. Meet me for a Turmeric Latte?
Jerri wears the Sloane Jumper in Ochre with the Vanessa Pant in Sand Wool (Coming Soon!)
Made from a medium weight 100% wool sourced from dead stock fabric, the Sloane in Ochre is a beautiful marle of golds and oranges. The jumper features our Arnsdorf logo in a multicolour yet tonal thread which we have embroidered in Collingwood.
The styling is boxy and a little oversized so the Sloane is very relaxed and easy to wear.
Jerri is pictured wearing the Sloane with our newest trouser, the Vanessa Pant in Sand Wool which are delivering next with a matching jacket ;)

Newly released Australian documentary In My Blood It Runs was shot in Alice Springs, Sandy Bore Homeland and the Boorroloola Community, Northern Territory over three years and centres around 10 year old indigenous Dujuan Hoosan who is a child-healer, a hunter and speaks three languages.
Dujuan is struggling in school and starts facing difficulties with welfare and police. He becomes in danger of becoming incarcerated while his family rally to give him both a strong Arrernte and and western education.
Directed by Maya Newell and all female team of directors, The Guardian describe In My Blood Runs as "quietly masterful" and both Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton individually gave it 4 stars.

Make Like You're in Mexico
The world continues to learn how to give and connect to each other during these strange days.
How about a trip to Mexico? Take a virtual tour through the Frida Kahlo's La Casa Azure - The Blue House courtesy of Google Arts and Culture.
This was Frida's house and studio. Where she was born, where she painted, where she lived with Diego Rivera and where she died. Many personal effects have been left untouched in the home as requested by her estate. If you haven't been before and feel like a balmy virtual escape, soak yourself up in these 360 degree images of the museum and feel 'la vivencia' here!

We've reached out to women in the Arnsdorf community to reveal their personal tips on how to work from home in style and comfort while staying healthy, sane and engaged.
What is your connection to Arnsdorf? I’m a stylist so I get the opportunity to borrow Arnsdorf samples for shoots and I shop at Arnsdorf .
What are you doing to stay active? I bought a bike as soon as the restrictions started so I’ve been going on lots of bike rides plus long walks, doing all the free online yoga, pilates & strengthening classes I can. It’s been quite nice to have a bit more free time to actually do these things daily.
Are you reading a great book or do you have a favourite podcast? Re-reading some old Jackie Collins novels, true escapism and I’m listening to Dolly Parton’s America. I’m desperate to get my hands on a copy of Raven Smith’s Trivial Pursuits. It just got released but seems no one has it in stock yet!
What about food. Are you cooking or are you addicted to a particular snack at the moment? Doing lots of cooking and lots of snacking. I made hot cross buns for the first time over Easter
Are you motivated to 'dress' for the day or are you repeating outfits? What are your go-to pieces? My style is very simple and relaxed usually but it’s gotten more so and I’m most definitely repeating outfits. I’m in Queensland sitting this out with family where it’s warmer than Melbourne so my staples here are a bikini, black nylon shorts, oversized t-shirts, a summer dress, men’s oversized business shirt plus an Arnsdorf celeste mini skirt for when I need to leave the house for essentials.
Have you been pleasantly surprised by engaging in something you normally wouldn't? Doing nothing and not feeling guilty about it. It’s an amazing feeling.
What songs are you feeling right now?
A huge mix of things! Listen to them here.
