These incredible shots were taken on Lord Howe Island after Romance was Born designer Luke Sales likened the magical island to scenes from Jurassic Park and drew connections to his current collection which takes inspiration from prehistoricism. Now, in an effort to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the images are being auctioned off here in Sydney. I've always admired Sales' and Plunkett's visionary collections, and to have the pieces captured in such a beautiful way really does make for an amazing piece of art. I was lucky enough to see the show last month where the pair of designers sat directly opposite me - a very special moment for me!
Check out more of the collection here.
A picture really says 1000 words. This collection is beyond phenomenal. Ever since Goot's label launched several years ago I've watching with admiration and awe at his amazing manipulation of colour and line yet I've never managed to get my hands on one of his pieces. Calling Mr. Goot - I think it's time we were invited to a warehouse sale...

You all remember how Chronicles of Never launched their shoe line and found it became their staple sellers... well I'm getting a feeling a de ja vu. Ksubi have produced footwear for quite some time without a great deal of hype, but now it seems with the new store open in Oxford Street and possibly a city store opening in the new Westfield, the label are trying to punch them out with force. The reason I compare the shoes to those of Chronicles of Never is they are actually remarkably similar to them... perhaps they have indeed taken a leaf out of ex-Ksubi boy and current Chronicles founder Gareth Moody's book?
After months of visiting the tiny boutique of Via Alley in Surry Hills with Samm to gaze at 'the watch' through the glass cabinet, yesterday he finally decided to take the plunge and buy his beautiful time instrument from Tsovet. With its Italian calf leather strap and and mineral crystal face what's not to love... I love it so much and am so jealous of it I had to post about it... and yes I have tried it on (and yes I will be borrowing it!)

Hair exactly like this - Samm, take note.
With a style like hers and a shoe collection which actually makes me shake, Sandra from 5 Inch and Up is just the bomb! I stalk this girl daily through her amazing blog, which as a matter of fact she's only had up and running for less than a year! If you haven't already, check it out here.
It can be said I've been waiting for this moment for some time... so with great excitement I bring you Sass and Bides SS11 collection named playfully after the girls' imaginary friend who journeys with them on all their travels - Papa Sucre, French for Sugar Daddy. A significant contrast to their previous collection, Tomorrow the Great, this season's collection plays with new colours to the Sass and Bide palate including beautiful watermelons, khakis, inks and fiery crimsons. Texture is another addition. The raffia detailing mixed with the metallics shown in both the fabrics and the accoutrements of bronze neck and waist plates is a bold and revolutionary choice for the Sass and Bide girls who would usually look towards embellishment for detail. Those of you who know my obsession for my Ksubi silk tee will be hardly surprised at my excitement for the digitally printed silks in the collection (there are no words.) - I can tell you now both those pants and that top can already be considered part of my wardrobe... also to keep in mind is that this show mainly featured the Ready to Wear collection - keep your eyes open for the Vie collection (part of which I have seen and fallen in love with...)
They need to stop doing this to me...
