Currently filling the office

Currently filling Fashionising.com’s office this sunny Monday morning is the music of local talent Gisele Rosselli. You can indulge in her electronica and folk music over at her Facebook fan page (there’s a music player in the left hand column). We encountered Gisele wearing a piece by Australian designer Ruby Smallbone at the Audi A1 launch party that took full advantage of one of Melbourne’s…

Chivas Regal by Vivienne Westwood

Hosting or attending a Christmas party this year? If it’s the former you’ll undoubtedly want to impress. If it’s the latter you’ll naturally want to take your host a gift. Irrespective of which it is, as a fashioniser you’ll be on the look out for that something special. And should it be alcohol that you’re looking for Vivienne Westwood‘s collaboration with Chivas Regal Scotch whisky…

Spotting the bubble girl

It looks like Melvin Sokolsky’s girl in the bubble is haunting me. She first served Fashionising.com as vintage inspiration, and we then discovered the entire photo shoot dating from 1963. Her latest incarnation is part of the 2010 Kips Bay Decorator Show House where she forms the central feature of one of the ‘bubble rooms’.

Tom Ford Private Blend candles

Here’s how I’ll justify it: “they’ll smell great in Fashionising.com’s new office.” Or perhaps: “I have most of the scents from the Private Blend range, this will compliment them.” Or perhaps I’ll simply admit it: I’m addicted to Tom Ford so hardly need an excuse to place yet another thing alongside a mounting collection of suits, shirts, specs, sunglasses, scents and shoes. There, I have…

Vintage luggage makes for the perfect furniture

South African fashioners, I envy you this. While searching for just the right furniture to give the Fashionising.com office an overhaul for 2011, I came across pieces which blend our desire for old-world cool with our ever-escalating passion to travel. Designer Katie Thompson takes disused pieces from yesteryear, and gives them new function perfect for a home or office whose interior feel is a mix…

Inside Coco Rocha’s Manhattan apartment

Models always seem to have uber-cool city apartments. And having now seen the inside of Coco Rocha‘s – a chic residence in Manhattan’s elite Gramercy Park – we can confidently group her as part of that pack. Coco (and husband James Conran) left the task of decking out the home to an interior decorator, which goes a long way to explaining the almost-too-cohesive furnishings and…

Milk Bottle pendant light

I may be the only person in the world who adores them, so if that is the case please forgive this selfish indulgence. But indulgence aside, a fashionisers’ home should be like their wardrobe: full of statement pieces. And the milk bottle pendant light is just such a statement piece; one perfect, at least, for those such as myself who behold milk bottles with childish…

A Single Man’s residence for sale

When Tom Ford made the leap from fashion design to filmmaking, we expected there’d be lots to love. But bringing so much more than just impeccable fashion to the screen, Ford’s directorial debut – A Single Man – had many pining for a retro-furnished redwood retreat with an open plan layout and glass frontage. Designed by architect John Lautner in 1949, the house at the…
