Trix and Dandy Launches in Style at the Long Room

Trix & Dandy Launch - Calypso PaoliTalented designer Michael Pattison delivers a breath of fresh air to hearts and minds of fashion followers with a new label – Trix & Dandy.

Last night at the new Ponsonby cool club, The Long Room, Michael Pattison displays an engaging show of his inaugural collection from the label. In true Michael Pattison style, the show is fun and packed with personality.

A city-style mix is presented of orange and red checks, florals and glam evening silks and cheeky knit dresses. The men’s collection shows smooth basics of shirts, jeans and tees with classic Andy Warhol style pop-culture prints speaking of sophisticated styles with contemporary and fun thrown in to the mix.

Inspired from the sultry and sinister thirties, Trix &Dandy are an irreverent Bonnie and Clyde influenced danger duo with a definitive gangster style. In a hedonistic collision of passion and debauchery, the two meet and the theme for the label is born.

“I wanted to capture the feel of a cardsharp and his gangster moll working the speakeasies of the thirties,” says Pattison

Not only is this label and its launch collection a fun and uplifting motivation for us; Michael designed the range in direct response to the recession and the effect it was having on fashion and followers.

“Stores were saying they weren’t buying anything due to the recession, but when I talked them through the Trix & Dandy concept, they have changed their position slightly and for the good of Trix & Dandy – we will be in 25 stores as of next week”

The Trix & Dandy pop up store is open for business up until late December at 16 Ponsonby Road, Auckland. You can also visit the official website here http://www.trixanddandy.com
