Review: Soroci Morning Drizzle Creams

Words by Matt Huxley Going in to the dreaded summer months, I’m always on the hunt for lighter, water based moisturisers to give my skin the water content it needs to prevent dehydration. I’m a foul sweater so this is a very real concern for me – nothing worse than dehydration lines! Soroci is a…

The Best Aussie Skincare Brand You’ll Ever Use

Words by Matt Huxley I rarely find a brand where I have a genuine and undying love for every single product that the brand in question produces. This happened for me this week with an Australian brand, Karinda Skincare. Oftentimes we (myself included) can be so focussed on finding amazing overseas brands in the French,…

Akira Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley A perpetual embodiment of the androgynous, oriental aesthetic, the Akira show is always one of brilliant craftsmanship, inspired ideas and unique silhouettes. Think longline layers, loose fits, and a largely white colour palette. Highlights of this collection included a turquoise coat/pant set with a white and beige granddad collar shirt. It was…

Vmajor Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley As the international show for MBFWA, Vmajor had a lot of expectations to meet, and they didn’t disappoint. Bringing back the sexy 70s in a retro-modern way that I certainly didn’t see coming. Think fringing added to skirt and top edges and sides. Retro plastic earrings, billowing silk dresses with large…

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…

Next Gen Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley Next Gen is always a mixed kettle of fish. On one hand you have the opportunity to discover the future faces of the Australian fashion industry, on the other hand you also get to see the result of overconfidence and ambition. Whilst none of the designers in today’s showcase truly flopped,…

Steven Khalil Resort ’18 Review

Words by Matt Huxley Do you remember that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestley is at James Holt’s atelier and purses her lips at the catastrophic dress that he had designed specifically for her? Well it unfortunately happened today at Steven Khalil for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. That probably makes it sound…

April Empties

Words by Matt Huxley Let’s go through my trash: Stefan Shave Oil: Phenomenal, loved every second of using it. It has this effect of clumping up your beardsy bristles so that they’re easier to remove. Great product. Lush Snow Fairy: Made me smell like a candy scented goddess so what’s not to love? Bathox Rose…
