Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: News, We Love
Luna Gal Spring Lifestlye Knitwear collection 2017.

When the only reliable thing about the weather is how unreliable it is, knitted layering saves the day.

Luna Gal releases her new range of Lifestyle Knitwear for Spring, with a focus on easy-wear, easy-care relaxed fit knits. These hard-working knits are designed to become an addictive addition for all occasions.

Knit drapes and falls naturally, skimming your body, never restricting it from your natural movement.
Well ours don’t anyway.
We love the feel of natural fibres and use supreme quality superfine merino wool and pure melange cotton.

Our Spring Lifestyle knits have been created for everyday luxury – yoga, over active wear – perfect weekend and travel garments.

For Supreme Quality – we Choose Wool. August 22nd, 2017

Knitted Yoga and travel wrap knitted in 16.5 micron superfine merino wool.

Working with wool get’s better and better. We were recently commissioned to knit a wrap for Lexus Australia as an exclusive gift. They requested cashmere. So we contacted our finest yarn suppliers and sourced cashmere / merino wool blend, silk / cashmere … and 16.5 micron superfine merino wool.

The results were unanimous – the superfine merino wool outperforms the rest – has the most beautiful feel, smoothest knitting process, washes beautifully AND is sourced from home grown Australian sheep.

We couldn’t have been happier with the results and have added it to our own Luna Gallery range as our staple yoga and travel wrap.

Luna Gal knitwear at Bowerbird market Adelaide

We love the buzz of a good market & Adelaide really knows how to turn it on.

Bowerbird is a dynamic environment for creative collaborators, supporting Australian designers, makers & artists.
It brings all kinds of people together for design-savvy interactions, with a heartfelt passion for small production runs, the handmade and offers the opportunity for buyers to meet makers – every stall at Bowerbird is staffed by the creatives behind the products.

Catching up with our fellow designer friends is a treat and the road trip from Melbourne is a very cruisy drive … if you happen to have a great pal by your side.

Thank you SO MUCH Jane Barwick & Adelaide for this great experience – we’ll see you next year.

Daniela Gregis – knit design March 19th, 2017

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: Luna gal, We Love
Knit design by Daniella Gregis is one of our faves at Luna Gal.

…tricycle, cycle, recycle…each thing has use as something else, and everything is transformed…forward, backward, return…it’s the path of a child, the zigzag of a mend…to play, to work, to help…a different tricycle in each time of life, received from someone and then given to another, life a craft or a big coat…three buttons, three wheels, three colours, it takes so little to do so much…waste becomes thread, thread becomes fabric, fabric becomes filling…yellow in the sky, evening night blue and naturals…beginning with what one is, working with what one has, living, preserving, transforming…

triciclo the wonderful inspiration of Daniela Gregis for her Autumn Winter 2017/2018 range.

Yarn sourcing inspiration for Luna Gallery Knitwear

Our inspiration for knit design begins with the yarn.

It has to be soft … yet resilient
Consistently spun with a perfect twist
Natural fibres, ethically grown & processed
Colours to inspire & suit our market
Available from a reliable yarn supplier … yes … many times we have been let down
by yarn shysters!
Machine washable (if possible) & Total Easy Care

So as you wear and enjoy your Luna Knit, know that we have worked hard to bring you a product of integrity … a garment designed for longevity … an original knit created from a simple & natural fibre.

Lazy Days January 6th, 2017

Dreaming of lazy days Luna Style

January – a time to slow down, rest, relax, renew – lazy days & hot nights.

And a time to ponder all things new for the year … what colours, what yarns, where will be get our inspiration … what will ‘float our boat’ for the coming Season.

As the Rooster is this years star – and a fire Rooster at that – will he have us meticulously pecking at our protocols, snapping us into line … will flamboyance come back into style?
Being a Rooster myself … I hope so … bring back RED.

Porcelain art by ANNA SCHEEN December 5th, 2016

Porcelain art by Anna Scheen - Lino Girl - Melbourne Design

HAND FORMED, HAND-PAINTED PORCELAIN WORKS, LIMITED EDITION PRINTS AND WORKS ON PAPER…beautiful creations by Anna Scheen – linogirl.com.au.

I had the pleasure of seeing, feeling, admiring & buying this most beautiful art this past weekend. I am in love forever. Here is a STATEMENT BY THE ARTIST … also capturing our hearts.

“A quiet smile, a flash of anger before it is restrained, quiet love that goes un-noticed. The stillness of a room that has just been left, the quietness inside ourselves, the quiet strength that we gather in a moment of clarity….
It is these small aspects of everyday life that interest me the most. I am interested in the moments that we miss when we do not play the role of the careful observer. We miss the small changes in our environments until we are struck by the larger events that ask us for all of our attention. Working with porcelain, I find that as a material, it captures this fragile state in a very pure way.”
Anna Scheen

… and much loved by The Luna Gal.
