Truly slow and ethical fashion

For the Truly Soulful,
& Mindful Woman.

Shop Just Dropped

Thoughtfully Designed
Lovingly Hand-Crafted

At House of Lacuna, we don’t believe in seasonal collections. In fact, we stay away from doing anything quickly; without conscience.

Our styles are slow from infancy: designed, hand-stitched and printed with intention and purpose at every step. The result is simple, timeless and classic fashion, worn for years and across every season.

Supporting Local Artisans and their communities, with integrity

Our Story

Naomi Swalwell comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, with her great grandfather founding the nationally treasured brand, Cottees. 

It was her grandmother Mae, in fact, who came up with the Aussie staple of every family’s summer, ‘Passiona’, helping her father to lovingly squeeze the fruits for each batch of cordial and jam. 

Naomi’s fashion credentials are vast and impressive, with stints in design production at Zambesi and womenswear design at Bonds. It was these experiences that Naomi credits to her love for homegrown brands; ones that cultivate and celebrate the laid-back Aussie aesthetic, and snap-change seasons of the land down under.

House of Lacuna

House of Lacuna literally means ‘new space’ in Latin, but to us, the translation goes so much further than just the name - it is reminiscent of the many moons of reinvention that women pass through over their lives. 

Our timeless pieces are designed to take you through them all.
