The Best of October at S2


ESS. Laboratory

The Melbourne based ESS. Laboratory design duo from Japan has embraced an extended notion of fashion as a collaborative effort, where a reaction to the predominance of commercial designs and conventions in the Australian fashion industry inspired them to create fashion that stems from individuality and conceptual ideas.

ESS. Laboratory's clothes are always wearable and timeless.

Lui Hon

Lui Hon’s beautiful designs are of a truly international standard. His creations look simple; however, they prove on closer inspection, not to be so. His designs bring out the beauty of the feminine, when it combines with the strength, injects or pulls out the masculine in the woman. The designs are structurally strong, technically faultless and texturally intriguing.

"I was raised by strong women, whose tenacity, courage and inner strength continue to inspire the type of muse I design for". – Lui Hon


ONE CHOI is based upon Choi’s interests in the simplicity of raw materials and the belief that knitwear can be sensuous. Based on the borderless premise of trans-modernity, ONE CHOI developed the unfussy ‘seamless’ technique and the idea of contrast resulting in a simplicity of form that is both timeless and innovative.

White Woods Installation: Spring Launch

‘White Woods’ welcoming the spring season with a new installation. An upside down, white and coral tipped woods suspended in the centre of S2 creates a new more whimsical, environment for our loved client and the passer-by to delight in…and for us revitalised energy in this simple space where we enjoy meeting and assisting you.

One Fell Swoop

The beauty of One Fell Swoop lies within their continued use of contradictions to fuel their design process. By combining the historical with the modern, the theatrical with the austere and the organic with the structured.
