Hey there, my name is Lisa and I am the designer and founder of the Australian fashion label LILYA, which has now been going for an incredible 16 years. I took my love of fashion, design and interiors, one step further a few years back and I am now also the owner of two beautiful lifestyle boutiques in Bali called Cove. Island Essentials. I am a Queenslander currently living in Bali, but have spent most of my adult life in Sydney, Australia. I am a mum, who loves aesthetics and design, animals, travelling and the beach.
In this journal, I want to introduce you to the talented and dedicated team of wonderful women who work in both our Australian and Indonesian offices and share with you our top picks for the season.
This season my personal favourites all have a little French flair. I love the way French girls mix casual with chic and always look natural and never too dressed up. For me, this look shines through perfectly in the pretty floral dress Yvonne. The Lacey Top in Black, has that element of 90s glamour mixed with a touch of rock 'n' roll, yet is super chic when worn with Molly Pants in Black. Also, on constant repeat for me this season is the Le Mans Cotton Jumpsuit, which is comfortable, can be worn belted or loose and looks great with both sneakers and also heels or sandals, allowing you to wear on so many occasions from work, to dinner, or on the weekends.
Hi there, I’m Rachel. I’m blessed to live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Australia a stones throw away from the ocean. I’ve been a part of the LILYA team for nearly 5 years. My role is customer service and I manage the website and stock, I make sure all orders are sent and buyers and stockists are happy.
I first met Lisa 15 years ago when I stocked LILYA in my fashion boutique in Brisbane and I still have LILYA clothes I wear from back then!
I’m lucky to be part of an amazing team of women and to have a wardrobe full of beautiful clothes! I enjoy the beach, pilates, walking, running and spending time with my gorgeous 12 year old twin boys.
My favourite styles from the Amour collection are the Safari Linen Dress in Olive and the Lauralee Dress in the gorgeous Botany Olive, because it's such a pretty floral print dress that's flattering and easy to wear for all year round.
Hey there, I’m Sarah. I'm originally from Melbourne, however I now have a lovely beach house on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. I joined the LILYA team around 3 years ago and my role is account management, administration, international wholesale and customer relations, as well as being the all round office organiser.
I love working in the fashion industry, I also love walking, water sports, meeting new people and the challenge of two boys aged 12 and 14.
My favourite pieces from this collection would have to be the Lacey Top in Blush, as its so pretty yet still edgy and made from gorgeous lace. The Yvonne Floral Dress in the Vintage Floral Lavender, because I love the liberty print look and just adore the vintage tea dress style and the Juliette Top in Cameo Rose, as it's a great top to dress up or wear with jeans.
Hi there, I’m Molly from Sunshine Coast, Australia. As a Graphic Designer I love precious moments spent with my family, my little bubs Bodi and hubby Mikey. We love sun filled days - early mornings at the beach enjoying a coffee and surfing and finishing the day watching the sunset with a cold drink (preferably a glass of Rosé).
My 3 favourite styles from Amour collection - The Molly Jean, which is without a doubt the best fitting and most comfortable jeans I've ever owned. The Safari Linen Dress, as it's such a chic and versatile piece and the Nila Cotton Wrap Dress, it's the perfect little black dress and a total wardrobe essential.
Hey, I’m Ilka and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I’m a Brand Specialist and the Social Media Manager for LILYA. In my spare time you’ll find me taking photos and going on adventures with friends. I love thrift shops and decorating my home.
My favourite pieces are the Mongolian Jacket in Caramel, because it's so warm and such a statement piece. The Nyree Dress in Black Lace, as it has just the right amount of grunge mixed and glamour and I love the Ellen Vest in Ivory to layer over other classics for the changing season.
Hi, I’m Diana from Jakarta. I have worked closely with Lisa in the LILYA Indonesian office for the past years 5 years.
My role is managing LILYA production and shipping. I make sure it's on time and good quality and I also help Lisa sourcing homewares and unique items for Cove. Island Essentials, her beautiful Bali stores.
My favourite styles from Amour AW22 are the sporty chic Lula Jacket in Desert Sage and the Gabby Dress, as it's such a classic linen dress in a natural colour that can be worn to work or the weekend. I also love the detail and colour of the Elysee Cotton Top, worn tucked in with the high waisted Lou Lou Pant in Mimosa.
Hi, I’m Lita, I come from Bali, Indonesia and I’m Lisa’s personal assistant. My passions include singing and travelling.
I am the newest member of the team and have learnt so much in the past year. I really admire the LILYA collections, and it's hard to choose favourites, but if I have to, I would say the Lou Lou Pants in Fawn, as they are such a great shade of brown and match everything. I love the way the Hermes Top in Toast looks with them in the campaign and I love the subtle romantic detailing. The Janey Cotton Top in Desert Sage, is also a favourite as it's a classic and easy to wear in the hot Bali weather. My dream piece is the Mongolian Jacket in Blush, though I could never wear it here in Bali.
Hi there, I’m Dina and I am from Bali, Indonesia. I'm the graphic designer at LILYA and also Cove.
I love working with a great team who make me laugh and I love learning new ways to do things. I also love riding my bike, catching up with friends after work, travelling and also chocolate!
My favourite styles from Amour collection are the Alila Jacket in Army worn with Delhi Linen Pant, together they make a comfortable yet casual linen suit. The Lula Jacket in Toast is a great fit and perfect for the weekend, worn with the Hendra Cotton Short in Mocca. I also really like the Le Mans Jumpsuit in Croissant. These styles are simple, comfortable and really fit my look.
Hi, I’m Adel and I am from Jakarta, Indonesia. I have been working at LILYA for the past year whilst also studying fashion at La Salle Fashion School. I have learned a lot working at LILYA helping Lisa with collections and I’m also the social media manager at Cove. Some of my favourite things to do to feel inspired are travelling, watching old movies and trying out new restaurants.
My favourite styles from Amour collection are the Luxemborg Knit, because when I travel this Winter it will be the perfect sweater to bring along. I will pair it with Olina Silk Velvet Pants, to mix the muted colours and textures. I also love the Ellen Vest in Black, layered over dresses and pants.
