Talking with Nicole Trunfio as she launches Trunfio Jewels

Models have perfected the art of moonlighting. When they’re not on the catwalk, they’re appearing in movies, satiating their social calendars and/ or fulfilling the title of Professional Muse. When you’re Australian beauty, Nicole Trunfio, you’re somehow managing to do all of this, whilst living overseas, and attending acting school, and designing your own collection. And did we mention she’s yet to hit thirty? Following…

Sinesia Karol Resort: understated pieces that understand women

It wouldn’t be unfair to sweep fashion-forward swimwear with a generalization of “overworked”, would it? A lot of the time when ‘fashion’ and ‘swimwear’ are used in conjunction, the result is often something jewelled, dazzled and anything but ‘swimable’. Even AAA’s would risk mortifying modesty slips with a slight shuffle on their loungers in those barely-there bathers — let alone the rest of us in…

Karlie Kloss gets even cuter for Free People’s fall video

Back in January, Karlie Kloss looked cool as she sat, soft pretz in hand, for Free People. Six months later she softened our hearts as she spoke about ballet to W. Now we’re falling in love all over again as she steps in front of the camcorder — this time more mute but twice as cute — for Free People‘s kitschy campaign vid. Sharing the…

Zana Bayne plays to social taboos, launches new season

It wasn’t the gallery’s air-con that had people piling outside of Chelsea’s CATM gallery in ninety-degree New York last week. There was no air-con. Instead, Zana Bayne’s leather harnesses attracted quite the crowd. Robed aptly for the event in their obscure labels, black ensembles and heavy Rei Kawakubo influences, the 50 strong crowd packed in to the tiny (and temperately tropical) gallery to support the…

The moody side of Zimmermann

Whilst Zimmermann has grown ubiquitous amongst our summer closets, and Zimmer-swimmers have made for ultimate beach bag staples, next season we see the brand reveal their moodier side. Floral frocks and feminine throw-overs dominated the spring / summer collection (in a way that Zimmermann does best, with beautiful fabrics, attention to detail and cutaways here, there and everywhere). Transitioning into colder temperatures – and a…

Giving us a sneak preview of their upcoming collection, Ksubi have released pictures of the first looks from their spring 2012 line, WAR. A modernised shake-up of ’90s grunge, the label has, as can only be expected of them, taken on rebellion, revival and notoriety.
