I had not heard of the Brazilian brand Osklen until I stumbled upon it in Rome of all places. I immediately loved its casual style, flattering draping and lush fabrics. My boyfriend equally loved the menswear line. The brand, so suited to the Australian aesthetic, is unfortunately hard to come by in Oz, so if you find it spread the word.

The old and new of it

You may not have heard of them before but Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair have been creating some seriously cool kit. This Swedish brand is dedicated to "traditional tailoring, pattern making and the old ways of the trade". Their cropped trench featured below is an example of this dedication but also shows how the brand merges the old ways with the new. Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair is stocked at Incu and the cropped trench is on sale at Incu's Galeries Victoria store now!

Cute as a bunny rabbit!

This young thing has some serious fashion crazies and I salut her for that. Cute as a bunny rabbit if not a little on the skinny side, she definitely has fun with her fashion.

Coco Avant Chanel

The day is almost upon us. Coco Avant Chanel, the film that portrays Gabrielle Coco Chanel's rise from orphan to legendary couturier, opens in cinemas around the country on 25 June. The Australian premiere was held last week and there were plenty of Sydney's social set there to check out the much anticipated film. I can't wait to see it out myself.

Bracelaces are the new bracelets

For those not up for the revival of Madonna's fingerless lace gloves try these Bracelaces by Itunube. They are made from lace and leather and look great! You can purchase them online at Lost at E Minor.

The new Madonna (Not sure where these come from but if you find out be sure to let me know!)

Jumpsuit + Sequins = YSL. But wearer beware, you have to be brave for this combo. Oh and you'll need a small fortune to afford them. So worth it!

These shots are hot!

One of the brave.

On the Straight and Narrow

I've noticed a lot of the classic black and white stripes featured in photos by The Sartorialist of late and I'm feeling inspired. I love Ann-Sofie BACKs take - more zebra than not. Manning Cartell also featured it in shades of grey. For the boys check out Anna & Boy's boardshorts!
