The motto contains the Latin inscription "Orta recens quam pura nites" which, in English, means "Newly risen, how brightly you shine".

Hanging out the washing


Martin Place this morning getting ready for a promotion for Kit and Ace. "Canadian technical cashmere experts Kit and Ace continue their pursuit for Australian domination with a new store opening in the heart of Sydney in Martin Place, which will be the brand’s first international tailor shop in the country. The 360 square metre retail space will offer more of the same classic tailoring and technical details Kit and Ace have become known for, but will feature a Technical Atelier, a workshop for up-and-coming local designers. Part tailor shop, part design lab, the Technical Atelier is a hub of innovation where Designers in Residence capture fresh trends and local input to create new styles."
