Despite being known for their beautifully tailored clothes and custom prints, you may be surprised to know Ginger & Smart, one of Australia’s most successful labels, originally started out in accessories. After their local manufacturer shut down, the sisters behind the brand, talented design duo Alexandra and Genevieve Smart, turned their focus to garments, which has not only seen them garner a loyal following over the past 13 years, but has seen them develop into one of Australia’s most popular brands. This Spring/Summer, Ginger & Smart have once again introduced accessories to their collection, and once you see their offering, you’ll wish they had brought them back sooner!


Like their clothing line, Alexandra and Genevieve have used only high quality materials, with a strong focus on not only being on-trend, but doing it in such a way that their pieces are still classic enough to be worn and carried for seasons to come.

This season’s collection is perfect for the modern woman. Based on a classic palette of white, nude and black, with pops of bright blue and rose gold detailing, it’s the unexpected detail that makes each piece stand out. Mixed leathers are accentuated by rubber tread detailing, constructed in a way that you think these two materials are made to go together. The accessories give off the perfect sports luxe vibe and are a great way to compliment this season’s garments.

The Shapeshifter structured box shaped clutch, while classic in its silhouette, makes a real statement and will be sure to be a real talking point whenever you take it out. The Shapeshifter Tote is the ideal work bag which will comfortably fit all your belongings and can easily transition from day to night. The Shapeshifter zippered clutch is perfect for a night on the town. The soft leather exterior comes in a versatile black, white nude or navy, and when the holder opens it up, the inside is lined with an exclusive Ginger & Smart print.

The Shapeshifter Zipper Tote and Shapeshifter Carry All are great for the weekend. Whether you are busy running errands or catching up with friends, these bags are both practical and stylish, the perfect complement to any outfit.


The Shapeshifter Heels mix leather and colour to perfection. They are a great way to compliment any sports luxe inspired outfit and the thick heel and platform make them one of the most comfortable shoes on the market, proving you don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort.

So as you get your wardrobe ready for the warmer weather, make sure you stock up on some Ginger & Smart accessories to have you standing out this season.
