2021 Empties

Oh my goodness. Not me making my return to this lil ‘ol thing! Seven years later and we are still inconsistent. But there’s a bit of a refresh in the air. We’ve had a bit of a spruce up. (Courtesy of the wonderful Nathaniel at Sacko). We are doing empties today, I managed to successfully…

Roopa Pemmaraju Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley It was a bright and colourful debut for Roopa Pemmaraju. Debuting their Indian inspired range to a crowd of minimalists agog with anticipation is no easy feat. But boy did they deliver. With an ethnically diverse model cast (which should be on every runway tbh) they debuted stunning look after stunning…

Marina

Words by Matt Huxley I was on a boat off the coast of Vietnam when the feeling hit me. A gigantic gut bubble that built in my stomach and expanded until I was drunk with queasiness. Stuff the buffet that was being laid out on  the upper deck. Screw the stunning views and humid sunshine.…

Trans-Seasonal Layering

Words by Matt Huxley I’m just going to come right out and say it. I hate this in-between season period. I am definitely one of those people who just likes to plan out what they’re wearing for the day. I don’t want to have to worry about if it’s going to get cold or hot later.…

Debauchery Chic

Words by Matt Huxley It’s funny how we sexualise certain objects for little to no reason. Take for example this choker – and can we just admire how bloody awesome it is?! The choker itself is not an implicitly sexual object, yet when styling it I definitely decided to play up the BDSM connotations associated with it…

The Caped Life

Words by Matt Huxley I’m not sure when exactly capes fell out of fashion for me. The Incredibles certainly scared me off them a bit. For ten year old Matt, learning that capes would undoubtedly suck your superhero ass into a tornado really made him rethink his outfits. But thankfully they are now back in…
