Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in New Fashion on Monday 12 April 2010

How hot is this cut-aged copper bracelet decked out with heart-shaped charms? Icon Brand’s designs of late are definitely heating up raw aesthetic appeal. I’ve got my eye on their bullet, rosary and dog chains. You got to love this 1977 Byron Bay-born company that still continues to deliver quality goods.

This singlet is 100 percent premium 150gsm combed cotton and is made in Australia.

Franks

By This Island Life in New Fashion on Friday 27 November 2009

Boys have had to way too easy for far too long. Back in the day, it was either budgie smugglers or a pair of knee-covering boardies. Not exactly a hard choice. The only problem is that no matter how many boardies you owned, they all produced the same look. A bit like Zoolander with his Blue Steel, Le Tigre, Ferrari and our personal favourite Magnum. But that was before Aussie label Franks hit the scene and before you had options. Now you can kick around at the beach wearing a short leg or mid leg alternative in a variety of colours and hand-drawn prints. Oh, and they work really well with that low-cut v-neck tee your mates love to give you crap about.

Limedrop

By This Island Life in New Fashion on Wednesday 5 August 2009

If you ever asked for a brag-worthy souvenir as a kid, only to have your dreams crushed by some play it safe relative, then chances are they brought you back a tourist tee instead. Now, it may not have cemented your status as the coolest kid in school, and you certainly couldn’t take it into show-and-tell. But by the looks of Melbourne label Limedrop, you might have been onto something. Their latest collection, Places I’ve Never Been, takes inspiration from the vintage tourist t shirts they’ve collected over the years, and the cities they aspire to visit. Slip into nomad mode wearing featherweight fabrics, and travel to faraway lands without even leaving your hood. Who knew dreaming about travel could be so fun?

Make Believe

This Island Life Contributor

By This Island Life in New Fashion on Thursday 2 July 2009

As we made our way to the bar at RAFW this year, it was obvious something was going down. A crowd had gathered around what we assumed to be an off-duty supermodel, but as we ordered our white wine spritzers (they were all the rage) it became apparent that this was no ordinary celeb spotting. The fashion pack were salivating over a man wearing what looked to be a life-sized rat dipped in some sort of neon plastic coating. We needed to know who was behind this, and now finally after months of extensive of research the mystery has been solved. The girls responsible for this Zoolander-like moment are Aussie label Make Believe. They coat flowers and toy rats in high-sheen latex to create scene-stealing jewels. Who’s up for a bit of menagerie accessorizing?
