TRIWA x Design Studios

 

Founded in 2007 by four friends, TRIWA is a young and independent watch and accessory brand dedicated to transforming the industry of watches and the perception of understated style.

All TRIWA watches and sunglasses are born in a creative studio in central Stockholm, where the city’s stark landscapes, diverse architecture and inquisitive people are the foundation for innovation.

Each TRIWA product is a thoughtful juxtaposition of classic silhouettes, Swedish contemporary design and curated materials.

 
"We challenge by looking for something else, deliberately misunderstanding what’s supposed. At our design studio in Stockholm we call it Swedish curiosity – always reinterpreting, always inspired by anything different, and always quality controlled by one simple question: Would we wear it ourselves?"
  
 
Triwa source all of their leather straps from Tärnsjö Tannery.
Founded in 1873, and built with unsurpassed knowledge and experience in the art of vegetable tanning and saddlery. Tärnsjö use local Swedish farms and are among the remaining 5% of tanning houses worldwide who still employ the tradition of vegetable tanning using environmentally friendly bark extracts, water and water-based finishing. The resulting aesthetic is of unparalleled quality and beauty.

BTS @ HOLLY RYAN Studio

The brand embraces functional design with a strong focus on high quality materials and the very best craftsmanship. Ryan aims to create jewellery designs which serve as memorable understatements. Refined, versatile and honest goods, built to last, but never boring. 
 
 
Holly believes that a piece of jewellery can transcend mere adornment to become part of the wearer: a signature. Designing pieces that are distinctive and subtle, yet enduring enough to suggest self-knowledge in their owner.
 
 
Architectural, linear, sculptural, geometric, minimal, and very polished. There are no embellishments. Each piece is specially handcrafted to order in Australia from locally sourced sustainably produced materials.

Bite into BITE BEAUTY

THE PHILOSOPHY
Susanne Longmuir, the founder and driving force behind Bite Beauty created her brand with the guiding philosophy and singular idea: Edible innovation for lips. 
"You eat what you put on your lips, so your lipstick should be good for you."
 
In 2011 Bite Beauty debuted - a collection of creamy, moisture-rich lip products made with food-grade, antioxidant ingredients that were good enough to eat. 
 
Iconic for highly pigmented and trend-forward colour palettes, infused in ultra-hydrating formulas, all with a cool modern matte finish. 

THE METHOD
Bite Beauty products are handcrafted one at a time in downtown Toronto, Canada. Their uncompromising quality is achieved by milling in small batches, and by taking the time to heat at low temperatures to retain the natural benefits of organic ingredients. 
 
The Bite Beauty product range is free of synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts like parabens, sulfates and phthalates. 

 
 
 
THE RANGE
High Pigment Pencil is a long-lasting, matte lip colour with the precision application of a pencil.
Made with a double dose of premium micronised pigments, this lip pencil delivers an ultra concentrated pigment with a modern matte finish.
 
The High Pigment Pencil contains the super antioxidant Resveratrol, which fights free radicals with potent long-term antiaging benefits. Each lip pencil contains the amount of Resveratrol found in five glasses of red wine. Shop here
 
 

Lush Lip Tint is a revolutionary lip tint formula that delivers luscious colour with an ultra-glossy finish. 
This Lush Lip Tint contains pure argan oil, vitamin E and fruit butters to hydate, nourish, and revitalise the lips. The more layers you apply on your lips, the more rich colour you will get.

While delivering long-lasting colour, this product also works to soothe and soften the lips, with the center 'B' bead providing Resveratrol, a double dose of the antioxidants found in red wine. This product is free from parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances or dyes, it is beauty for lips that’s good enough to eat.

Cashmere Lip Cream is a cream-to-powder matte lip colour that delivers an unprecedented intense pigment dispersion. Through Bite Beauty's proprietary small-batch process, this weightless formula fuses hand-milled edible butters with pure premium pigments to deliver Bite Beauty’s boldest coverage yet. Formulated with four times the average level of pigments, Cashmere Lip Cream imparts an intense, yet feather-light wash of colour. 

The cream-to-powder delivery system is achieved with an advanced formulation of butters, waxes, and oils that all have different melting and absorption rates. The balanced combination of waxes and butters with the powder texture of silica develop a creamy and buttery application that quickly absorbs into lips while the powdered pigments remain on the surface to leave a matte finish.

Matte Lip Cream is a collection of lip crayons from Bite Beauty’s latest breakthrough formula. With a collection of beautiful nudes, striking reds, and deep burgundies in a matte yet moist texture.

The secret is the moisture-locking power of orange peel wax along with the antioxidant properties of Resveratrol. The colors are water-resistent, and long wearing. The lips-only collection is certified gluten-free and made with food-grade ingredients, without sacrificing pigmentation or performance.
