Kolor fall 2014 men’s: a ruffian charm

Wide pant cuts, muted colours and layerings of hoods, knits and chunky scarves gave Kolor’s fall / winter 2014 collection a youthful, ruffian charm. I can’t use the word scruffy though, because that would be inaccurate: it was a little careless, but never far from refined. Sometimes outfits leaned entirely to the casual side: denim shirts peeping out from velour zip-up jackets, heavy handycraft reindeer…

Suzy O’Rourke makes the most beautiful ear muffs you’ll ever see

If ever you doubted that millinery could be called an art, then you need only look at the craftsmanship that goes into couture millinery pieces like these by Suzy O’Rourke. O’Rourke’s autumn / winter 2012 couture collection, which aptly goes under the title of ‘Gilt’, features the types of sculptural shapes that are her hallmark. Vines of 24 carat plated golded leaves twist their way…

Roberto Cavalli men’s: the softer touch

It’s always refreshing to see brands taking certain seasons to a sublime level. The Roberto Cavalli fall 2012 menswear show lends itself well to this fact; we have seen womenswear take on a level of androgyny and adopt a hint of a man’s tailoring touch so to speak. However, it's far rarer to see the same in reverse; the double printed suit trend? Check. The layering of various textures? Cavalli has done it. Man-capes? Yes sir! So when looking through the Cavalli men's collection, we see a cross over of trends and guess what? Men are actually pulling it off! Cobalt blue man-capes, and leather and wool combined knitwear is not just a thing for the fashion savvy lady but a look that is becoming apparent in a man’s wardrobe faster than you can say run roger rabbit.

Short but sweet: practical pin-up

It’s one of those feats that balances along a wire-thin line: how to dress in a way that’s both rather revealing and innocently sweet. Velour magazine gives us not one but eight answers in this shoot starring Kristy Kaurova, all firmly rooted in that hint of 1950s pin-up girl styling. Gingham dress and cat eye glasses? Check. Boy-shorted playsuits with ruffled edges? Check. Vintage inspired…

Flannel: french on the RAFW catwalk

Casual wear is always the order of the day in Australia. This is a laid back country where formality is often snubbed, and that culture is never more prevalent then when you see so many of its designers back to back at the country’s fashion week, RAFW. Tailoring is rare, formal pieces rarer. Through cut, cloth and the slicking back of hair Flannel proved that…

Velvet clothing: velvet fashion trend

Velvet has many enemies. People who loathe its existence, wish it was never invented, and shudder at the thought of a post-90’s velvet revival. I can find that position mildly understandable; sure, there have been some velvet disasters. But for the most part I fall into the velvet-lovers camp because there are also many times when velvet can go so darn right that it’s hard…
