Where the pool meets the ocean

We fell in love with sports luxe many moons ago, yet somehow we haven’t stopped tumbling. The love affair continues into spring / summer 2014: a season where bright neon accents are the exclamation marks on statements made from slick minimal whites, airy mesh fabrics, and reassuringly sturdy neoprenes. All those things get a distinctly Sydney spin in the latest shoot by Kelly Defina for…

The essence of sporty-chic

Australia has the sports-luxe aesthetic nailed. Which makes sense, if you consider the sunburnt country’s love of outdoor activities, and it’s penchant for turning effortless style statements into something more sophisticated. Photographer Kelly Defina captures these styles in a simple and pure manner – representing the sports fashion exactly as it should be seen.

Bondi nights: the wind in her hair, the pavement under her feet

Bondi has it’s own mood on a balmy Friday night. The soul of a beachside city awakens and radiates from everything: the still-warm pavement, the leafy trees, the brightly painted walls. In Kelly Defina’s latest shoot for Fashionising.com, gorgeous fresh face Baylee soaks in the surroundings and becomes a part of them. This is the place where a sporty bikini doubles as streetwear without ever…

Steph Smith is everyone’s new crush

Where fierce sportswear and unbridled glamour intersect, there stands Steph Smith: half melting into the shadows, half illuminated by the light that cuts across a fitting backdrop of deep sea blue. She’s in her element as the star of Kelly Defina’s latest sports-luxe themed shoot for Fashionising.com, styled by Elaine Marshall in what could be a visual handbook to the theme: swimwear and streetwear thrown…

Summer vibes: Laura by Kelly Defina

Right after that early breath of fresh air that doesn’t smell like winter at all and a very first walk spent haunting the streets without a heavy jacket on, there’s only one fantasy that can instantly invade both the mind and the soul. It all begins with the long for an endless summer, the craving for an exotic destination and the need of a light…

Dale Robertson, a model debut

One day, when Dale Robertson’s career as an actor comes to fruition, we might look back on his job working in the Western Australian mines with intrigue – the same way we devour the fact that Johnny Depp once worked as a pen salesman, or try to picture the days that Madonna worked at Dunkin’ Donuts. Celebrity has a way of enchanting us with every…

The jetsetting male

It’s a male literary archetype desired by many but perfected by few, epitomised best in Ian Flemming’s James Bond. He’s a jetsetter, the man who’s tough and yet refined, who lives life with equal parts adventure and luxury. In another new shoot for Fashionising.com, photographer Kelly Defina set about creating a vision of that desirable lifestyle. Model Zac J is dashing in a sharp suit…

Inspiration for soft tailoring

Put tailoring and androgyny in the same sentence and you might be inclined to think of something very hard. You might think of sharp, structured suiting and slicked back hair; you might even picture something that leans a little to the corporate side. But androgynous fashion as a trend in 2012 is more concerned with how traditionally masculine cuts can be transformed into something feminine…
