There’s a low continuous drone like a cloud of mosquitoes blanketing the sun. Distant murmurs on an island, their apparition drowned out in an oceanic swell of noise. Opiates have dulled the senses. Chemicals pattern the sky. The funeral procession is met head on in a solemn ceremony.
The beaded armour offers protection from the evil eye as the Sirocco wind starts to blow; whispering and touching us softly like raindrops. Our human instincts emanate from the heart. This beat is our sound.
Gail Sorronda is available exclusively in Brisbane at Bessie Head and Fallow.

Fallow brings you Anndra Neen...
Anndra Neen was founded in April 2009 by sisters Phoebe and Annette Stephens. Anndra Neen is an expression of their shared vision for jewelry and accessories and is evocative of their personal histories and design inspirations. Born and raised in Mexico City, both Phoebe and Annette attended college in the United States.
Phoebe studied literature at Wheaton College in Massachusetts and Annette studied acting at Boston University. After college they both moved to New York City where Phoebe became a fashion specialist for Philips De Pury and Annette pursued a career in theatre. During a trip to Japan the sisters decided to start their own line.
Their inspirations for their line are as diverse as they are and begin with their childhood in Mexico surrounded by art and artists. Their grandmother, Annette Nancarrow, was a painter, sculptor and jewelry designer who was married to the avant-garde composer, Conlon Nancarrow, and was close friends with such icons as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Jose Clemente Orozco, Rufino Tamayo, Juan O’Gorman, Anais Nin, Merce Cunningham and John Cage.
Nancarrow ‘s jewelry designs fuse pre-Columbian stones and shells with mixed metals. Her pieces were worn and collected by Frida Kahlo, Helena Rubinstein, Peggy Guggenheim, Elizabeth Arden, Dorothy Miller, Mrs. Harry Abrams, and Helen O’Gorman and sold at Henri Bendel in New York City. Although attracted to their grandmother’s eclecticism, the sisters have drawn on their own interpretations of antique European jewelry, Egyptian and Bedouin motifs, Japanese design elements and French Medieval armor to create a vision that gives reference to its antecedents and is at the same time relevant to the moment.
