#1939 ACNE’s kitschy, incorrectly-labelled tourist sweaters are all kinds of awesome


Photos: The Fashionisto Due in no small part to budgetary constraints (and the fact that my daily wardrobe is ascetic to say the least), I don’t often watch the menswear shows and think, ‘I am going to get me one of those shirts, suits or Hermes emerald green suede henley tees.’ However, when a friend showed me ACNE’s postcard sweaters from the Fall 2011 collection, I decided that in this case, the forbidden fruit must be tasted. I’m obsessed. It’s a combination of the navy blue, maroon and grey marle colourways; the slim, cropped shape; and the amazingly kitschy, incorrectly-labelled

#390 Forget chicken of the sea, it’s all NZ labels for Pete’s babes Ashlee


Grazia Once again on the topic of celebrity endorsements, my main man Pete Wentz and his wife Ashlee Simpson were in Sydney last week for the Australian MTV music awards. According to Grazia, Ash needed a dress for the awards (didn’t her mother ever tell her to come prepared?), so she headed to Bondi boutique Ourmishmash for a last minute dash shop. While she was there she picked up an Ellery dress (above) that she wore to the party, and a few pieces from New Zealand designers twentysevennames and Stolen Girlfriends Club (pics of what she bought after the jump).

To be announced tomorrow morning (NZ time): NZ designer Des Rusk will be shuttering his eponymous semi-tailored menswear label at the end of the current summer season.

#2808 The Second Layer Q&A


Hey, gidday mates! I flew back to New York from Paris last Monday, and I was joined onboard by a couple of cool Californian designers named Ant De Padovane and Joshua Willis, who’d just been showing at Project Paris. We got talking, they told me about their labels Second Layer (which they’re presenting tomorrow at NYFW Men’s) and Article No. — worn by guys like Future, Jared Leto and Eugene Tong — and I asked if I could record what was said and post it as an interview. The following conversation on New York VS LA, Mexican gangster style, and tacos took place 30,000 feet above the English Channel.

#2723 Black And White


Hey, gidday mates! This post was brought to you by the colors black and white. As you might have noticed over the past few weeks, I’ve been adopting the styling techniques of guys like Harry Styles and Eugene Tong — great coat, t-shirt, jeans, done. Simplicity at its best. The coat is by a label named Plac, it’s a melange boucle wool (the kind of fabric classic Chanel jackets are made from), it has quilting on the inside to keep you warm — meaning that for now a t-shirt is sufficient underneath — and I’m obsessed.
