• Review: The Riversleigh Hotel, Bairnsdale

    The nature of my job means that sometimes I need to travel, and on the odd occasion that travel requires me to be on a work site in a country location at 6 am, and that’s exactly what happened this time. Uhhgggg. I needed to be on site in Bairnsdale at 6 am, hi-vis and all, for an emergency training session. And coming from Melbourne, leaving at 3 am just wasn’t an option! I needed to find somewhere to stay that night near the work site so I could be up bright and early the next day, so I jumped on to…

    VAMFF 2017 Spotlight: AMXANDER

    When I first saw the collection’s lookbook, I was taken aback. The collections prior to it had all celebrated one classic form of masculinity or another (with a recent collection having an aviation/military influence), and I was expecting AMXANDER to follow in that format this time around. But this collection… It seems to celebrate a lesser spoken about part of being a man, but one that’s just as important and influential: Fragility. The pieces themselves are bold, determined and clean, clearly showing influences from Gucci & Yeezy (triple denim, more if you can!), Dolce & Gabanna (embroidery & patchwork features) and Balenciaga…

    Sass & Bide: Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear

    Sass & Bide are one of those brands that seem to straddle the invisible like – looking like they’re going in circles, using the same influences, the same styles, but then they bust out a collection like this. Every. Single. Year. It really is amazing. Their pieces, normally your go-to party dress or neon print ‘I just threw this on yet look stunning’ singlet has undergone re-vamp this season, with a rather obvious (and gorgeous) Japanese influence that melds nicely with classic embellished and printed pieces. The classic geometric cuts, zigzag stitching, and prints were in full force, yet in a…
