Salty knots in your hair, sun-kissed skin, and a scent like coconuts and lemonade icy poles - these are the marks of an Aussie summer. After a long day at the beach give yourself - or your loved one - the gift of a soak, scrub and pamper with Klein's Perfumery goodies in Melbournalia's homage to summer - the Beach Life Pack. The perfect way to refine your glow before settling into your local for a night of conviviality.
Kleins began as one of Australia's first dedicated perfumeries on Brunswick Street in bohemian Fitzroy. Almost twenty five years later, founder Andrea Birnie took her insight and experience and - working in close collaboration with the Rennie Ellis Archive - launched Kleins' own range of body-care products.
The images of 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s Australia, as captured through the lens of Rennie Ellis (1940 – 2003), are widely regarded as seminal portraits of a country exploring its wilder self. Ellis himself was interested in the offbeat and in the freedom of Australia in these times. Through his photography, Ellis explored a myriad of subcultures, documenting intriguing characters and a different time in history.
Kleins' Rennie Ellis series combines a proudly Australian made product with a proudly Australian talent, taking the audacious, sexy and often shocking photography of Melbourne's most famous social photographer, Rennie Ellis, as its inspiration.
