Blue Monday - Winter Looks to Keep You Dancing

For those of us sitting out the cooler winter months in Melbourne, here at MHD we thought we might as well make the most of it! We put together a special winter edit, inspired by New Order’s Blue Monday, released in 1983 it was the highest selling single of all time. With an infectious hook and recorded using homemade synthesisers, New Order opened a club on the strength of this one single! Just because it's chilly, and there are intermittent down pours of rain doesn’t mean you can’t go out, enjoy yourself and look your best while doing so! We have picked out all our favourite pieces from the season, to get your creative juices flowing for your next party, or outdoor adventure. In the mix is a range of separates that are perfect for layering with your existing wardrobe and also some special standalone pieces that will take your winter look to the next level!

Also we’re very happy to announce the launch of a new skivvy from our very own in house label! Just in time for the serious chill that is about to descend on Melbourne. Available now, the Lettuce Long Sleeve Skivvy. This new addition is a tube style wool blend long sleeve with baby locked sleeve detailing which also appears on the top and bottom edges, creating subtle detailing.

Coming in Olive and Black, the Lettuce Skivvy is a versatile skivvy, perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth and texture to your outfit. In spring wear as a light jumper or tie around your waist for layering effect.
