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-labelledClick to Continue!

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).Click to Continue!
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. Des Rusk is stocked in six stores between New Zealand and Australia and has been operating for four seasons.

In an interesting twist of fate, after Barkers and Des Rusk ended their agreement, Barkers signed a deal to exclusively distribute Rusk’s previous employerClick to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I don’t know about you, but I’m on a perennial hunt for the perfect white T-shirt. Obviously the perfect white tee is entirely subjective, but right now I’m feeling a 1950s style Marlon Brando/James Dean fit, in a heavier weight cotton, with way short sleeves to show off the sculpted guns (which you’d know I’ve been working on every day if you’d been following me on Snapchat: isaaclikes).Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Another day, another Baracuta G9. This time it’s the stone colorway, favored by Steve McQueen. The only difference being that liked to wear his with a cream colored sweater underneath; the perks of a year-round tan. As a fairer skinned individual, I try not to wear too much beige too close to my face, but I hope the navy blue sweater (knitted by my Mum!!!) balances it out a bit. Yay? Nay? Now, a quick note on those sunglasses. I’ve been wearing Moscots for about five years — they were the first proper-good pair of sunglasses I ever picked up. This pair is part of a special limited edition collaboration with the Australian record label Future Classic, and there are only 100 pairs available worldwide, so get in quick.Click to Continue!
