The Amazing Women Of KIM

One of our core values at Boo & Westley is empowerment, of anybody really – but in particular, women. We believe women are truly amazing and can change the world, so when we were deciding what to do with our offcuts to reduce waste, we only had one thing in mind. That is, we wanted to collaborate with an NPO that held the empowerment of women to the same level we do. When we came across KIM we knew we had found that. KIM stands for “Kasih Inspirasi Mandiri” which translates, in essence, to “Giving Inspiration & Independence”. KIM shelters marginalised and/or divorced rural Balinese women, who are often ostracized in the local community. This amazing NPO inspires by providing...

Our designs // Double shot shirt

The classic slim fit shirts are (probably) the most repetitive item in every gentleman’s closet, the reason for which is obvious. However, they may seem rather dull and lifeless at times… Surely there is no excitement in choosing among the tedious single coloured or striped shirts usually on offer. Well, there is no reason why a gentleman shouldn’t enjoy choosing from vibrant, vivid options! There is so much more one should expect from a shirt and we believe the market doesn’t give enough options. So, like the story behind the creation of all our garments we found the gap and jumped right in to solve what we felt is a real problem. Boo & Westley Double Shot shirts are the...

Our Designs // Smoko Shirt

Since the beginning, AND.M has been aware of the special relationship it has between its two home countries, Australia and Indonesia. We have put a lot of thought into a product that can show this connection - A design that not only represents both cultures but also helps bring them together. And so, our Smoko shirt came to be. Whilst - like all AND.M’s clothing this is created using hand-painted batik from Indonesia, the Smoko design itself is inspired by the iconic agricultural shirt from Australia. Making the concept of these men’s shirts is incredibly close to our hearts and especially that of our founder Tillie who is from a farming family. To us making sure our gentlemen get the...

Our Designs // Diamond Top

Do you have tops overflowing from your wardrobe? – because we sure do … all the way onto “the chair”. And hey! Who can blame you! Those things are handy! But how many can you match with all kinds of your bottoms? From a fun skirt to classic trousers, how many do you have that can match both? Struggling to think of what options you have? Don’t worry – that’s exactly what we design for ;). Remember before being designers we join you as being consumers in this massive industry called fashion. AND.M was started partly because of the frustrations we experienced shopping, the lack of variety and colours – all limitations and not what we really wanted. Ladies -You...
