Mimi Leung Reader Find

By Mimi Leung in New Fashion on Friday 19 October 2012

Gorman is an Aussie label that I’ve recently discovered.

Zanerobe goodies for a fashionable Christmas

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Fashion on Thursday 15 December 2011

We’re buzzed about a few items in particular in the latest range from our friends at aspirational street-wear label, ZANEROBE, who we’ve been fans of since we launched Lost At E Minor back in 2005. Our faves at the moment include the Chuck Navy shorts, with rolled cuff; the Curtis Brown Sunnies, ‘with full rim metal detail in a round vintage frame'; and the Acapulco Navy Tee, with twisted side seams. Stocking fillers? Hell yeah. We’ll take them all for Christmas. ZANEROBE is hanging in the cream of stores, including Australia’s David Jones, Japan’s Barneys, the USA’s Nieman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks. Or just get into it online.

I heard the impressive girls behind the Newcastle art and fashion label, High Tea with Mrs Woo, talk last night. Man, they are an awesome team. These three sisters have been making beautiful, hand-sewn fashion for the past ten years: a labour of love, inspired by their environment, their love of their craft and materials, and their own unique sense of aesthetic. I walked away from their talk — organised by Renew Newcastle — inspired by the beautiful work they create each day.
