Winter is here for Australian fashionistos and yes, all the major fashion houses are starting to drop their pre-fall and early picking of their FW12/13 in store. I’m sharing with you my favourite collection for FW 12/13. And of course there was no bias involved.
I thrill at the fact that the cold season will feature astrakhan collared coats, double collars, double-breasted suits buttoned high, pinstriped jackets with a flower in the buttonhole and bendy butanol-soled oxfords. Of course this well all trickle down too through the “cerulean effect – I just wonder which details the high street will pick up.
Exciting stuff, no? I love that red collared shirt with the negative and positive gun print!!!! Power dressing for the man is back!!!!

There is nothing better for a fashionist(eau) than to own a piece from the runway. A runway piece heralds a fashion house’s creativity, identity and sense of uniqueness. Here are my favourite pieces from Spring Summer 12.
Okay so the last image is almost impossible but a gay boy can dream, right?
Rumour has it some of these pieces will be on sale very soon. So keep your fingers firm on the fashion pulse!

Do you know that feeling when you get back from an amazing holiday and everything you do is “anti-climactic”? I’ve recently been going through that feeling, so to knock myself out of it I invited a friend out to lunch in Erskineville where we could soak up the beautiful autumn sun Sydney has been blessed with lately. What a perfect day it was to break out one of my favourite shirts, my Orri Henrisson Edouard’s mix shirt worn under my Prada suit. It was an occasion, me breaking out of jet-lag and apathy, so I donned my best.
It also gave me the chance to take my Jil Sander market tote (SS11) which I recently purchased in Hong Kong. The way that it captures the sunlight and luminates makes me so happy. A bag I’ve been lusting since it first appeared on the runway, I’ve thought to myself that it would be my token of Raf Simons’ amazing work at the house of Jil Sander. Mentioning also that I’m currently fascinated with petrochemical orange and the tote just happened to be that colour! Don’t you just love when things sync!?!

Let’s hope I’m fully synced to Sydney and my normal routine by the time I go back to work next week! Fingers crossed!
Hello Hong Kong! You are such an amazing city! Fashion, hot boys and yummy food. You are so easy to fall in love with. Too easy. I will see you again. Very soon…
Being back in Sydney sucks.
A couple of weeks ago was my first time EVER in Melbourne. I know right!!! Having lived in Australia for 99% of my life – the fact that I had never been to Melbourne is quite dismal. Nevertheless I managed to make it down there for work. I got to meet the amazing people that work at the Collins St boutique and also catch up with my best friend who is studying texttiles at RMIT. Not to mention…have dinner with Henry Ng of Orri Henrisson fame. However I did not shop (a trip to Melbourne is a must shop…) I was instead enjoying the food, the drinks and the culture of Sydney’s rival city.
If in Melbourne, you must:
-Have cocktails at Manchuria
-Shop at GPO
-Eat burgers at Huxtaburger
-Check out the State Library … it’s absolutely beautiful!!
