IMAGES Gritty Pretty + Goldie & Ace
Mother of 4, Entrepreneur & one seriously stylish individual. We were lucky enough to Chat with Lindy Klim about her recent collaboration with the Gorgeous Children's label Goldie & Ace.
OKKKK and about life in Bali, Travel Tips, Motherhood, Advice for those starting a business etc-etc-etc ... It is fair to say, we enjoyed this one!
What was it about the brand Goldie & Ace that you felt you are naturally aligned to?
At the moment, I seem to be having a love affair with linen. It started with my label Rama Voyage and when I was approached by Goldie & Ace, it resonated with me. So I guess, instead of dressing adults in linen, I can dress children in linen too. In addition, Goldie is the name of my daughter so it was the perfect synergy.
Having dressed four of your own children over the years, what was important to you when designing Goldie & Ace’s Linen Range for children?
Practicality is a definite one for me. Trying to dress a moving child is difficult sometimes. And I love that linen is easy to wear and it's timeless.
As outsiders looking in, we are very envious of your life in Bali! What is the biggest difference in your lifestyle compared to Melbourne?
Everything. My life in Bali is very relaxed and super chill. There is no keeping up with the Joneses in Bali. The children are so fortunate to have a carefree beach life.
Being a Bali Local do you have any recommendations on your favourite go-to places to eat or things to do for anyone traveling over?
My favorite go-to local places is probably around my area in Berawa. You'll see me hanging out a lot in Milk and Madu, Nude cafe, The Slow. I pretty much don't venture far from my home. And my favorite thing to do on the weekend is to take the children to the Bukit and hang out at places like Karma Kandara.
We absolutely love hearing about success in business. You have been involved in several start-ups including MILK & CO and now your recently launched label Rama Voyage. Can you give us your best piece of advice for anyone looking to and/or currently running their own business?
I personally think that it started with having a good team. I'm a true believer in outsourcing, it's important to leave any ego behind and being able to accept what you're good at and what you're not good at is very important.
And finally can you share with us your favourite pieces from the collection?
The romper suits and the pinafore. I love the colours and they are so easy to take on and off and layer in the cooler months.
