We’re F!nk-ing

By Benjamen Judd F!nk is a bit of an institution within the design world. Not only are they stocked in international art institutes such as MoMA in New York and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra – the label is behind some of the most famous household items of the past decade. The iconic […]

Kate and Douglas + Bec

By Benjamen Judd If you’ve taken yourself out on a lovely stroll up Oxford Street to Paddington, you may have noticed the Kate Sylvester store. The New Zealand designer has been enticing shoppers in with her range of elegant yet simple clothes for women for over a year now. You may have also noticed that […]

From Finland, With Colour.

By Benjamen Judd Former U.S. First Lady and style legend, Jackie Kennedy, was allegedly a huge fan of Finnish fashion and homewares label, Marimekko. They were famous for their bold prints and incredibly bright colours even back in 1951, when the brand first launched. Why are we talking about them? Because they are finally opening […]

It’s always a pleasure learning about new

By Benjamen Judd It’s always a pleasure learning about new Australian designers, especially when we were wearing their label already without even realising it. A recent shopping spree online saw some of the guys here boasting about their new favourite t-shirt and shorts for summer. Synchronicity prevailing, they were all talking about the same label […]

Wax Heads

By Benjamen Judd If someone gave us some candleholders as a birthday gift, we’d probably just re-gift that stuff right back. But if they were candleholders in the shape of a doll’s head we’d not only keep them, but also offer whoever gave it to us our last piece of chocolate. And that, in case […]

Meow, Meow

By Benjamen Judd Have you ever looked at something so cute it made your skin crawl? Adorable little rabbits and baby deer looking up at you, looking completely sweet and innocent…and then you realise that behind them lies a heap of skulls and corpses. That’s the world of Meow Girl. Macabre. But super sweet and […]

Everingham and Watson Now Online

By Benjamen Judd It’s always good news when one of your favourite boutique stores for bits and pieces opens up an online component. Particularly when that store normally operates as a pop-up store around Brisbane. Which is what Everingham and Watson were and now have done. Owners, Susie Everingham and Liz Watson, had already made […]

To Ellery and Back

By Benjamen Judd A quick survey around the QT office and we are quite shocked at the difference in ratios between Sydney born-and-bred-ers and those who moved to Sydney from ‘Elsewhere’. Every city has its own personal charm but Sydney really does have a magic all of its own that seems to attract people of […]

Tea With the Mister

By Benjamen Judd We consider ourselves quite the lucky bunch here in the QT offices. It’s not often you get a group of people working together who all share the same dorky sense of humour – like watching videos of baby animals sneezing, bad grammar in menus and sarcastic cartoons. However, like all offices, no […]

Pinterest is king.

By Sas Rowlands.   If you are like the rest of the world and are getting sick of facebook but can’t bring yourself to delete your page, Pinterest may be a great way to share out your online hours and dilute your FB stalking time. Pinterest is a cool site built on the premise of […]

Ksubi or not to Ksubi

Ksubi or not Ksubi A lot of us remember the Sydney-based brand, Ksubi, back when it was still called Tsubi; when it was sold in only a handful of shops scattered throughout Darlinghurst and Paddington – some of us go as far back as when they were still selling stock out of the trunk of […]

Manly Designs

By Benjamen Judd Dads all over Australia have just celebrated Father’s Day and we can only imagine all the good things they got when they woke up. Like socks. And underwear. Some ‘fancy’ beer. If this was the list of things that your dad got, we hope you kept the receipts because we have gone […]
