Inside St Kilda's Famous Tolarno Restaurant

In celebration of our 10th birthday, we were lucky enough to collab with cultural icon Mirka Mora to bring you our limited edition Kip&Co x Mirka collaboration.

Six ways you can #switchfornature this Earth Day

Six ways you can #switchfornature this Earth Day

Each year when Earth Day rolls around, we all make little promises to ourselves. You’ve probably already made some smaller changes; maybe purchased yourself a steel straw, some tote bags, and maybe a few keep cups - because sometimes those larger changes can feel daunting and unachievable. So this year, we’re bringing you some sustainable switches that are easy to commit to for long-term impact. These suggestions don’t require any new purchases, and with a bit of practice they might just become new habits.         1. Dispose of your clothes and textiles consciously The end of life for...

Meet Mirka Mora's Son William - Kip&Co x Mirka Mora Collaboration

In celebration of our 10th birthday, we are so excited to announce our limited edition Kip&Co x Mirka collaboration! Mirka Mora is more than an incredible artist, she is a cultural icon. Born in Paris in 1928, she migrated to Melbourne in the 1950s after escaping a Nazi internment camp. 1950s Melbourne was a sleepy town, and Mirka's magnetic and cosmopolitan sensibility fuelled a bohemian subculture that made the Melbourne we know and love today. We’ve been honoured to work with Mirka’s son William, and daughter-in-law Anna, who have guided us generously through this special collaboration. We are so pumped...
