I was so happy to get an email earlier this week alerting me to the re-launch of Glomesh. The iconic Australian brand was high on my wish list when as a fashion obsessed teenager I would go hunting after school in second hand stores hoping to get my hands on a prized hand bag or purse. Glomesh was founded in 1958 by Hungarian immigrants Louis and Alice Kennedy in Sydney and grew to be one of the most popular Australian fashion brands. Now their grandson Daniel Goldberg is bringing the brand back to life.

Glomesh with its shimmery trademark mesh has unveiled their website this week and has taken the brand in two distinct paths. ‘The Way We Were’ features shapes and pieces that hark back to the brand history by reworking their classic and well loved bags that would be familiar to many.

The other direction ‘Ground Floor Going Up’ mixes leather with bold graphic hardware and works the iconic glomesh into the pieces more subtly.
