Called Diamonds and Pearls and shown at The Sydney Theatre Co. in May, the summer 2009-10 collection of Luke Sales’ and Anna Plunkett’s Romance Was Born label so captivated the attention of STC co-creative director Cate Blanchett that she wore its one-shouldered, hand-crocheted cocktail dress, seen here, to an Australian launch—and made headlines around the country the next day. That dress was one of a kind, but the charming granny crochet look—knitted by Sales’ mother—lives on via the digitally printed silk quilted Clam bag with a wooden handle, seen here, about $550.
