Sun-Drunk-Love - Tusk Collective

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Introducing "Every Morning Comes the Sun" from Tusk Collective.  The lovely ladies of Tusk Collective share their creativity and passion for design by creating pieces that breathe fresh, tropical and erotic air. Don't even get me started on my obsession with the Madame Fate cape (below). Without further adieu, tap into your inner wanderlust and explore Tusk Collective.





Where did you meet?
We met drifting around our lazy coastal town, and got to know each other on escapades to the tropics.



How did you get into designing?
We're both inherently creative and our backgrounds in fashion & graphics were a catalyst to begin our own design ventures; It was just perfect timing with island life and the mix of our visions & inspirations that Tusk came about.



What are your favorite materials to work with?
Metals & leather; creating natural, handmade products that are designed to age with you, and one day tell their own story. 



What inspires you daily?
Sunshine & caffeine. Marrying a rockstar in Mexico ala Patti Hansen. Flowers in every room.



How would you describe the 'Tusk Collective' wearer?
Sun-drunk & wandering



What are some of your favorite places in New Zealand?
Opoutere's forest & ocean. The top of our local mountain. Undiscovered waterfalls. Fruit icecreams on a roadtrip. Birding on Great Barrier Island. Fields with live music. Home.



"Delivering thoughtfully curated collections to adorn both the body and abode. A collaboration between friends - we cultivate our design inspirations from our most loved destinations, creating relationships with loving craftsmen and together refining limited edition capsule collections."
