Welcome to A FOOL’s Paradise, a blog designed to keep FOOL Devotees up to date on all things FOOL-ish. We will give you the scoop on anything new and thrilling that has just landed in-store and may even paddle occasionally in the murky waters of fashion politics and ethics…

Winter is my absolute favourite fashion time of the year. Not only can we get giddy about a new season of FOOL design magic; we also get to cocoon ourselves in wool in all its tactile forms. Soft Merino machine knits (made in Brunswick) in exquisitely detailed intarsia and bold geometric colour-blocking; chunky funky hand-knits; knobby boiled wool wovens and more, more, more…

Although seriously cold weather may seem far away, it will get arctic and wool is still the best, most luxurious, and in FOOL the most stylish, way to stay warm. As you know, each element of our knitwear collections is available in very limited numbers, so if something woolly catches your eye and starts to commandeer your dreams, please visit us. We’re already getting low on some sizes and would hate for you to miss out!



DIAMOND KNIT DRESS – be still my beating heart!

Available in bright or dark combinations, this dress just WORKS. The solid colour rib-knit bodice – black-flecked Topaz in the bright colourway and forest-flecked Black in the dark – features a crew neck, dropped shoulders, ¾ sleeves and super-flattering high waistline. The double-knit multi-coloured skirt falls almost straight, gently flaring into a subtle A-line. The hem is split or ‘stepped’, with one side shorter than the other, cleverly accommodating short and tall. It feels fantastic on the skin and skims the figure rather than clinging. If you buy just one dress this winter, the DIAMOND KNIT DRESS should be it. I can’t wait to wear mine! We also have matching long-line DIAMOND ZIP KNIT JACKETS….double gorgeousness…Both available only at FOOL in Greville Street, Prahran.
