an inspired brand story.

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Founded by Bondi Local - Alex Nieuwenhuys in 2018, Alex's focus was to deliver a brand that represented her love of travel,  style, design and paying homage to her European roots.

This Australian brand and Small Business Startup has developed a national following with plans to expand across the Pacific and then Globally by 2021.

 

rhodin. is the result of Alex's obsession with Travel and Tourism - having worked as a Sales & Marketing Director for some of the worlds largest travel brands. Some say it is an interesting combination and crossover - however with Alex's background - she wanted a collection that you can easily pack to feel beautiful and effortless during your travels. 

 The current product lines feature Sunglasses, Earrings and her Woven by Rhodin pieces with a new line coming in 2022 - that promises to anchor rhodin. into the travelluxe mindset.

A little piece of background on our main inspiration below.
Welcome to rhodin.

 

The inspiration behind rhodin. comes from the era of an amazing lady named Anne.

A true lady whose style ran across the decades from the 30s...she was an entertainer, a style maven, a model,

a mother and most of all my beloved Nan.

She loved her family, holidays, afternoon cocktails and telling tales.

I miss her - this is for you Nanny Rhodin xxxx

p.s her eyewear collection was amazing.
