Remember how we told you that graphic prints were going to be big news in Spring/Summer '12-'13? Photographic prints, in particular? Well Sportsgirl's latest designer collab ticks the new season trend box, as well as satisfying our love for all things NYC-related. New York based photographer Adrian Mesko has put six of his signature photos on silk for luxury scarf label Tempes de Reves, with the capsule collection for the Aussie chain store dropping in-stores nationally, and online, this week. Priced at $50 a piece, this is a much cheaper way to add a little Big Apple style to your wardrobe than a one way ticket. Snoop (and shop) Mr Mesko's work.
The Sportsgirls Like programme goes from strength to strength (can you believe it's been running for nine years?), with Antipodium being the latest label to work with the Aussie chain store. Signature styles include re-worked Breton striped tees, modern paisley printed frocks, zip-edged hoodies and high waisted plaid shorts which imbue the range with a festival-ready vibe but with cool East London connotations. Sound good? Jump online on September 5th, or head instore on the 12th to get your paws on this killer capsule collection before it runs out the door. Step this way to scope the range in full...
The much anticipated Richard Nicoll for Sportsgirl capsule collection finally dropped into stores yesterday, after many weeks of lusting after his tailored, feminine styles. The London based Aussie expat designer was in town for the drop date, turning up to the Pitt St Sydney flagship store this week. Richard will back there tonight, answering questions from Kate Waterhouse and giving a styling session using his fab range (and showcasing his favourite piece no doubt!). You can also get up close and personal with Mr Nicoll at the Land's End instore event in Paddington, NSW, on Friday. Stalking? Who us? No...never!
Richard Nicoll is bringing his London look to Australia via the latest Sportsgirls Like collaboration. Wanna see? We've got these hot-off-the-press look book images for this capsule collection, and we're busting to share! Cutting his Aussie design teeth at Central Saint Martins before starting his own eponymous line, Mr Nicoll now heads up the creative direction of French label Cerruti. Add seven capsule collections for Topshop to his CV and you've got a chain store collab of the highest design pedigree. "What about the threads?" we hear you cry. Expect a clever blending of boy-meets-girl styles as Richard takes traditionally masculine fabrications like herringbone, checked wools and houndstooth — and injects with femininity via his tailored silhouettes and girlish finishings. Heart motifs and ribbon bow detailing up the flirt factor of sharp shifts, cigarette trousers, and business-like blazers. Sharp enough for work, but cool enough for play — these are clothes designed for the urban stylista. In short, we j’adore. Dropping in store and online March 28th (write that down!), with prices ranging from $80 — $200, this is one expat effort that's sure to be a retail hit.

After what seemed like a long, Siberian winter without a Sportsgirl store in Sydney’s Pitt St Mall, the sun has finally come out! The brand spanking new Sportsgirl flagship store opened it's doors this morning in the still-shiny-new Sydney Westfield complex, and I was treated to a sneak peek last night. They had me at hello with the biggest wall of accessories I’ve ever seen, not to mention a muchos tempting range of handpicked vintage threads, the adorable Sportsgirls Like Anna & Boy collaborative range and more cute-as clogs than you could poke a Swedish stick at. We've also got our eye on their hard to walk past Christmas gift range, too! Take a guided tour inside the new store with our gallery of snaps. Enjoy!
Ex Voguettes Anna Hewett and Lill Boyd saw a void in the market for fashion forward swimwear — and filled it with their now famous, eponymous Anna & Boy line. We've long loved their retro-cute printed cossies and chic-er than average beach cover ups, so it would be a slight understatement to say we were excited about their Sportsgirls Like collab! The designer duo's Wayward Daisychains diffusion line is choc filled with Anna & Boy trademarks, from ditzy floral print onesies to retro styled bikinis, to cuter than cute playsuits. Anna & Boy for Sportsgirl will launch online and hit Sportsgirl stores tomorrow. With prices ranging from $90 to $160 our guess is it'll go fast, so get in quick!
If you aren't already acquainted with hot Aussie label Aje, rest assured, it'll be on your radar very soon. Designed by hipsters Eddi, Bree and Adrian, Aje was born out of a combination of styling, fine arts and finance backgrounds. Recipe for success? You betcha. Sportsgirl has zoned in on the label and announced them as their next installment of Australian designer 'Sportsgirl Likes' collaborations. Hot off the heels of successful partnerships with Ellery and Arnsdorf, Aje's Sportsgirl collection boasts a mismatch of glamour, rock chic and sophistication, including ruffle skirts, one-shoulder necklines and floaty dresses. Tough romance has never looked so sweet. Hit up the Sportsgirls Like Aje collection online from the 26th of July, or in stores from August 2nd.
