How to: the messy French pleat at Jayson Brunson

Strong but feminine, this is how Redken Hair Director Richard Kavanagh envisioned the Jayson Brunsdon woman for spring / summer 2016. Anchored by a French pleat, the androgynous hairstyle pays homage to the 1950s, while having the overall textured look borrow inspiration from the ’90s supermodels. Textured, messy, one-of-a-kind, this is the look you’ll want to rock this summer. Discover the full, step-by-step tutorial, after…

UNIF channels grunge-girl style for spring

That love of 1990s fashion that crept back into our hearts is still getting a good run for its money – as brands like UNIF are reminding us. Their spring / summer 2015 collection features a doe-eyed Valerie S (@ Wilhelmina models) wearing ’90s grunge-girl staples like choker necklaces, school-girl skirts, crop tops and ripped jeans.

Naomi Campbell is a lingerie-clad femme fatale

Naomi Campbell with a shovel or a riding crop (and a tempter) aught to spell trouble. But where there’s Agent Provocateur lingerie involved, it’s trouble of the best kind. Campbell stars as the femme fatale of the brand’s David Lynch-inspired spring 2015 campaign – and with Ellen Von Unwerth behind the lens, it’s a perfect murder, executed with perfect sensuality.

Disco glam on roller skates

Flipped hair, glitter eyes, glossy lips of crimson red and a whole lot of gold serve to outline her flirty character. Made perfect with gilded roller skates and flashy, metallic shorts, Sydney Mays takes you right back to the disco-fabulous days saturated with loud music, colourful lighting and dazzling garments. Half roller babe, half disco queen, she turns the ’70s flashback into a dreamland, as photographed…

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…

A day off in another decade

Somehow the elements of fashion’s neo-punk and the streets of Sydney just gel well together. A relaxed, too-cool-to-care vibe permeates both: the unlaced Doc Martens and clashes of prints in Blake Sutherland styling, and the arcades and streets chosen by photographer Aimee Stoddart make for an editorial that could be the 1990s or could be the now.

Fetishised sensuality gone rogue (NSFW)

It’s not about the desire to shock anymore, not since the bondage element has long morphed into a full statement of luxury, instead the modern fetishism is more about allowing sensuality to break new grounds, without fully abandoning the taste of forbiddance. Chokers, fishnets, thigh-high stockings and leather harnesses met Sidney Bristow’s androgynous beauty as photographed by Yves Kortum for Bambi Magazine, in a successful…

Dressing the uptown girl

It’s not Park Avenue. To my eye, I’d guess at one of Sydney’s winding city streets. But Forever New’s Park Avenue Collection, and the campaign to promote it, is probably not going for something so literal anyway. It’s going for a mood, a look, one of gently waved hair and feminine dresses, lace and florals and brocade. Juliana Forge plays the uptown girl who’s never…

Hair how to: clean & chic side part at Witchery

Straddling the space between timeless classics and modern sporty-chic is the spring 2013 collection from Australian retailer Witchery. The key story of the season is a monochromatic one: crisp white and pitch black facing off in a multitude of minimalistic ways, complimented by occasional bursts of colour and slick snakeskin prints. The collection – titled “Bold Vision” – was shown on the runway in Sydney…
