meet: rhodin collection
Welcome to my second meet: post , introducing some very rad local bizs I've found and fallen for.
Local could easily be interchanged with small for these bizs but I refuse to label them as small because to the person/people behind them, they are anything but small. So to me, they will always be known as locals. A rad local biz by my definition, is one located within Australia, with values similar to mine and a strong commitment to the environment and the people who inhabit it.
Without further ado, here is my second rad local (& I'm sure you're going to love them, I know I do!)...
who is rhodin collection?
rhodin is a brand delivered by its founder Alex Nieuwenhuys to represent her love of travel, style, design and playing homage to her European Roots.
The basis of Alex's inspiration came from both her Grandmother and her Mother growing up. Both great lovers and adopters of style and trends...she was always surrounded by women wearing beautiful accessories.
rhodin. is a family name..an inspirational bunch of creative personalities - from Swedish beginnings to putting down Australian Roots.
This lifestyle label was born in Bondi, a community of creatives, trends, incredible landscapes and seasons.
We hope you enjoy our pieces - both handpicked and designed.
Our Shades are aligned to the modern thinker who loves a classic shape.
Our Baubles are a beautiful complimentary piece that adds a little something to your day.
Our Woven by Rhodin pieces are designed in Australia and made by our team in Bali. Chic yet simple.
We hope you enjoy our aesthetic and welcome any feedback you have.
A little piece of background on our main inspiration below. Welcome to rhodin.
who is behind rhodin?
Founded by Bondi Local, Alex Nieuwenhuys in 2018 and is a result of her obsession with Travel & Tourism - having worked as a Sales & Marketing Director for some of the worlds largest travel brands. She wanted a collection that you could easily pack to feel beautiful and effortless during your travels.
who wears rhodin?
rhodin is worn by the everyday woman who enjoys chic, affordable and sustainable styles. Pieces that have good design that you are happy to wear for more than one season
what type of gallivanting does rhodin enjoy best?
rhodin is a brand for all situations across the weekend - you can take it from sport, to coffee, to the beach and then to afternoon cocktails. Our pieces are designed to compliment each other and if you throw them into one of our rhodin totes - your weekend is set.
is rhodin a coffee or tea drinker?
Absolutely both depending on the mood. Loves a Flat White with full Cream Milk ( to get the day started) and Tea - Russian Caravan...her absolute favourite brew ( to wind down).
what is rhodin’s fave piece from current drop?
Fave piece.....ohhh...have to be the RC Tort Wing Shades - they go with everything. I wear them everyday.
what can we expect from rhodin for summer?
A new design in our Medium Woven Tote Bag is arriving at the end of October - and will be in a Black Trim and for the first time a Cream Trim.
Our new Boyfriend Resort Shirt will hopefully be on the shelf by December. This has been nearly 9 months in the design process and we are so proud of it. The shirt will feature in an organic cotton poplin and we made sure that it was sustainable and ethically produced. Our production studio we work with is in Bali and is family run. Cannot wait to show you all!. It will be a versatile piece that you can wear to the beach, to breakfast on holidays and then to cocktails in the evening. Inspired by my travels around the world and always searching for that perfect resort shirt in the hotel boutiques. It will come in three sizes to start - but will be oversized. We wanted to make sure that it was button up - so mammas and non mammas could enjoy it in style. (I personally cannot wait for this, it sounds INCREDIBLE!)
