We polish off new season arrivals with a fresh mani from Inco Studio!

The ‘Vessel’ collection arrives instore this Sunday. The highly anticipated second drop of three for the season. Familiar styles are reimagined in bold new colourways and new silhouettes pair nostalgic shapes with modern fabrications and the brands signature pale gold detailing.

But it’s the colour palette we are most excited about… They say colours make you happy, so we say ‘the brighter the better!’  The tones of the Vessel collection explore the coastline surrounding the Aegean Sea.  Natural clay, and sun-drenched chalky tones have us dreaming of a Summer in Santorini. The season hero hue, blue is lovingly coined ‘Aegean’ (where would love to be taking a dip!) paralleled with bright magenta, like the beautiful bougainvillea peppered along the cobble stoned streets.

We’ve paired up with Inco Studio, the best in the business, to revel in new season tones, and trends. We are In Good Company (see what we did there?) with the team of hair stylists and nail technicians. They know what’s good before its cool and have built a reputation on creating a welcome, inspiring space with bespoke treatments that’ll have you counting down ‘til your next appointment.

We explore various trends such as magenta ombre, white matte with an iridescent sheen, and ocean blue and clay tones, like refractured rock – playful and electric, there’s something for everyone.

Variations on moody grey, nudes, and glossy navy tend to circulate with the seasons. But the accompanying nail-art designs this year are far less predictable — and feel like a breath of fresh air during this strange back-to-school season of continued social distancing and working from home.

For Saben, Inco designed a magenta ombre manicure, matte white with iridescent cracking, ocean blues and clay tones like the sea and refractured rock our pallet is drawn from.

We catch up with ever-lovely Zoe Clark, INCO Studio owner and mother of three, to chat on our three favorite things: beauty, business and babies. Zoe candidly shares her thoughts on COVID, community, and the challenges that have come with 2020 (most chaotic year to date, am I right?). As a lover of NZ design, we couldn’t help but be inspired by her edgy yet effortless style, along the way. Read more on the blog…
