May The Label has become a bit of a wardrobe staple for Aussie women, not least of all because of its cool, easy aesthetic. We were mad for May's Summer release, and now history is repeating itself with their Autumn 2013 collection, titled "Arizona". While the details are bold and beautiful — think quirky motifs, lots of colour and a touch of leopard — the silhouettes are quite classic, given that May is all about simplicity. Full of can-wear-right-now separates, this latest collection is quite minimalistic, with a punchy twist — and we pretty much want it all. It's all available online now (they do free delivery!), but you can click through to see it right here, right now. Bring on Autumn!
It's no secret that we love a bit of One Teaspoon round these parts. The easy, edgy, cool-without-trying label has been a summer-friendly staple since its inception in 2000, and the brand's latest offering reminds us exactly why. Starring gorgeous Aussie model Rachel Rutt and styled by founder Jamie Blakey, the look book was shot by photographer Ben Sullivan, who also shot the label's campaign with Erin Wasson earlier this year. The Easy Rider range mixes the grungy with the hippie, lending a rock-meets-boho feel to the jumpsuits, capes, flares and maxis that feature in the collection. It's all available online now, or in store, and prices ranges from $59 to $380 — so good, right? Click through the gallery to check it all out now!
To coincide with Australia Day, we're focussing on everything fashionable to come out of Australia this week, including our favourite and most successful model expats, designers, clothing and more. However, first (and most important) thing's first — shopping. We've done a little online hunting to bring you 10 wardrobe staples that every Aussie girl should own including an iconic Seafolly floral bikini teamed with a Tigerlily cover-up, black cats-eye Ellery sunglasses and a Country Road towel. We've got you set for the beach and beyond, so it's time to put your (chic) patriotic hat on and get shopping.
Charlie Brown's latest celebrity recruit, Nicky Hilton, took to the runway last night for her Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival Spring/Summer show. The collection, titled Altered States, was shown at Sydney's Town Hall in front of celebrity guests and fashion insiders. Nicky paraded key pieces from the range including prom-style chiffon dresses, drapey leopard print and embellished evening frocks. Charlie Brown is no stranger to celebrity models, having previously used big international names such as Lily Cole, Jade Jagger and Sophie Dahl to walk for her shows. "I'm excited to welcome Nicky Hilton to Australia and to bring her back to the runway to showcase my new Spring/Summer collection direct to my friends, fans and customers. My Altered States range is full of bold colours and prints and fun pieces for the party season. I think people are going to love it," said the designer. See Nicky in action in our jam-packed gallery!
Paris-based Australian designer Gail Sorronda injected bronze into her Spring/Summer collection this year, a first for the designer who only favours black and white each season. Dramatic hairpieces and jewellery were yet again the centre of attention adorning sleek satin pencil skirts, white shirting, tutu-style skirts and puff sleeves. I particularly love the ribbon-detailed sheer black dress and white gathered bubble dress, they may not be entirely wearable but I'd still love to try them on and have a little play! Kooky, yes, but still beautiful.
