Uno de 50 + Numero 3

In the late 1990s, a group of creative designers decided to establish a jewellery and accessories business that would set itself apart, a new brand that would break away from existing trends and impose its own philosophy and personality.. The project was based on a Utopian idea: to make only 50 units of each design, so […]

HEART OF GLASS

By Benjamen Judd Port Douglas is truly one of Australia’s most beautiful areas to visit. Even better to live, if you ask us. Warm oceans, deep tropical forests and endless sunshine can relax even the hardest of workers…we should know, because we work super hard to make sure that it stays this way.   Not […]

Rosetta Santucci at Gallery One

Gallery One presents the works of Rosetta Santucci. Here are some words about the artist: Having spent over a decade experimenting with applications like jewellery and textile design, it was a natural progression for me to start painting. My background in costume for film and television and a passion for textiles – primarily tribal and […]

Bike Taxidermy

Bicycle taxidermy

one’s wood-filled study. Or it’s weird and creepy, with the sad beady eyes of animals that have been conquered or have passed away always looking on. But in a less frightful, more inventive approach to taxidermy, which is also a good show of recycling, comes bicycle taxidermy. With examples of these repurposed works adorning the […]

The Man Bike

The man bike

Though highly practical, a wicker basket fastened to the front of a bicycle can err on the side of the feminine. A slightly more discreet yet laddish option is the Bicycle Seat Barrel Bag from Walnut Studiolo. With a design that fuses the aesthetics of an antique steamer trunk with the practicality of a St […]

Retro Dreamer Cecil Beaton

Retro dreamer – Cecil Beaton

“Be daring, be different, be impractical” With the QT Fashion Week and Awards Gold Coast just around the corner we are loving everything fashion, photographic and unique. This week we’re taking a closer look at the iconic Cecil Beaton. There were many feathers to Cecil Beaton’s cap (including careers as an illustrator, painter, Academy Award-winning […]

He’s as mad as a hatter

Stephen Jones is known for eccentricity. Born in Cheshire, England, and a former student of the elite Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Jones burst on to the London fashion scene during its explosion of street style in the late 70s. He has been one of the worlds most radical and prolific milliners […]

If the shoe fits

If the shoe fits

Shoe Obsession, co-authored by Valerie Steele and Colleen Hill, is a fabulously illustrated book that explores western culture’s fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Over the past decade, shoe design has become increasingly central to fashion, with fashion companies paying ever more attention to shoes and other accessories. High-heeled shoes, in particular, have become the fashion […]

Oldskool Chatterbox

Remember these? The hours spent in class deciding your classmates fortune or challenging them to the dreaded ‘truth or dare’. These paper Chatterboxes are one of the simplest origami tricks to master and we’ve included some easy refresher tips so that you can relive the glory days: Materials: 1 sheet of paper Coloured pencils Pen […]

Gothic Glamour

Gothic Glamour

The aroma is overpowering but deeply sensuous – like being hit in the face with a velvet pillow stuffed with rose petals. Surely the scent of every flower imaginable is here, infused with the heady essence of darker, musky fragrances my untrained nose refuses to identify. That’s my first impression upon entering Damask Perfumery – […]

CAST YOUR EYES THIS WAY

By Benjamen Judd You make the decision not to wear sunglasses in Sydney at your own peril. They serve multiple purposes, not in the least to help prevent you getting unnecessary crows feet from constantly squinting in the Australian sun. They also make sure that no-one can tell you’re not listening to them when they talk […]

Who framed Bambi?

By Benjamen Judd We have a soft spot for cute things. They make spaces more fun and they tend to lighten the mood of a room up and we’re also incredibly juvenile at heart so anything even slightly whimsical makes us happy. The Bambi frame came from a collaboration between designer Fukutoshi Ueno and Australian […]

Wall heads from Anthropologie

Wall heads

By Benjamen Judd What do a hippo, a giraffe, a walrus and an egret have in common? Their heads could be hanging from your wall in the very near future. Before you go all Bridgette Bardot and call PETA on our butts, we don’t actually mean real animal heads. We mean some super cool papier-mache […]

Jordan Askill

JORDAN ASKILL DESIGNS

By Benjamen Judd Jordan’s CV reads like a dream. Or nightmare, if you are a competing designer. Before launching his own avant garde range of jewellery, Jordan worked at the infamous Sydney-based Kusbi, during which time he also launched his own ready to wear line. Following that, Jordan then took his already impeccable skills off […]

Comfort outdoors

By Benjamen Judd You may not feel like it right now (what idiot decided that 45 degrees was an appropriate temperature?) but in a month or two when it finally feels like we’re no longer living on Mercury, there is nothing better than some ice-cold mojitos in the backyard. Or the balcony. Or the rooftop. […]
