Full of Fendel’s signature cutout drop earrings, colourful cocktail rings and chucky detailed cuffs, the collection features this season’s vibrant colour scheme with turquoise and emerald making pieces pop. www.nicolefendel.com.au

Looking dapper and defiant Jack London’s signature look, fusing rock and roll attitude with classic tailoring, is revived in the AW13 collection. Inspired by classic modernist themes and tartan prints this season Jack London goes back to basics, mixing traditional British style with 1960s references. With clothing inspired by the British and European Mod Rocker scene you can expect slim cut suit jackets and trousers, short collared shirts and the odd mustard coloured nubuck, suede bike jacket.

City Riots A drunk Kirsten Dunst, Robert Smith in their dressing room, Billy Corgan’s moodswings and meeting bad boy Ryan from the OC all became the norm on tour for Adelaide boys City Riots. Having just finished their Catch the Sun Tour and receiving rave reviews for their album Sea of Bright Lights the boys are looking forward to doing some more writing before potentially heading back to the US later this year. It must be a relief to be home after sleeping in cars and on floors but touring is an opportunity so few get that the boys are enjoying every second of it.

Bailey Nelson Sydney-based optical label Bailey Nelson is causing quite the disruption to Australia’s optical market. Their unique approach to eyewear offers fashion-forward style, handcrafted quality, and value - $95 (including the prescription lenses). With boutiques in both Sydney and Melbourne, they have gradually created a cult-like following over the past few months. For spec-lovers accustomed to paying hundreds of dollars for a pair of brand name spectacles, Bailey Nelson’s dedication to quality is a breath of fresh air. Sourcing the finest materials across the globe, all frames are handcrafted and made from Italian acetates in colours ranging from classic to eclectic. By using the multicoated anti-glare, anti-scratch lenses, Bailey Nelson offers just about the perfect pair of spectacles for $95. Bailey Nelson acknowledges quality, but also quantity. One of the brand’s founders, Scott Triana, explains their vision for spectacles as an accessory - not a long term commitment. “We offer timeless styles that are office-ready and appropriate for every occasion, but why not have a little fun with your spectacles? That’s what the Art of Spectology is all about.”

Sydney Boutique - Monday to Saturday 57 William Street, Paddington NSW 2021 Phone: 02 8011 3827

Prahran Boutique - Monday to Saturday Shop 3, 161-165 Greville Street Prahran VIC 3181 Phone: 03 9044 2838

w www.baileynelson.com.au

For those that have been wearing the same spectacles for more than 12 months, Scott recommends brightening up your day, outfit, or mood with a little colour - perhaps tangerine, champagne, rosé, or even green tortoiseshell. Bailey Nelson’s first boutique has brought a second wind to Paddington’s once exclusive William Street. The constant flow of customers on weekends is evidence that word has spread across Sydney about the stylish spectacles. This has sparked the decision for a second Sydney-based boutique, which will open in late June near the intersection of Oxford and Glenmore streets. The brand also has a strong Melbourne presence, with a boutique on Prahran’s Greville Street, and a Pop Up Shop in Melbourne Central. Spec lovers from other states or rural areas can still get in on the Bailey Nelson action by shopping online. At $95 for a set of spectacles with prescription lenses or polarised sunnies, you can look awesome for every occasion.

with Nadia Draga

The dream of a vast piece of Aussie soil to call one’s own is really just that – a dream – thanks to the crazy housing prices (Gen Y-ers know what I’m talking about). With no big backyard on the horizon what do you do when you want some green in your small, urban dwelling? The answer is macramé plant hangers! And considering you can make your own for less than $10 – why wouldn’t you deck out your pad with hanging succulents or herbs? Here’s what you’ll need: - Utility cord (15m x 3mm thick) - A pack of split key rings (30mm) - A good pair of scissors - Matches - Potted plant - Matches - Potted plant 1. Start by cutting eight strips of cord 1.8m in length and an additional two strips 30cm long.

H O W T O

2. Thread the eight strips through the key ring positioning them halfway down the length – you’ve now doubled your cords to 16. 3 Use one of the 30cm cords to secure everything in place with a wrap knot (head to fashionjournal.com.au if you’re unsure how to do this). Trim and singe the excess cord once the knot is secured. 4. Separate the cords into four groups of four and tie a knot in each bunch about 25cm down. 5. Group two cords from each bunch and tie another knot about 10cm down. 6. Secure the macramé with a final wrap knot using the remaining 30cm cord another 12cm down. Trim and singe the excess to avoid any fraying. 7. Trim the dangling cords so they are all uniform. 8. Pop in your potted plant and you’re good to go!

These are not only great to hang out around your own place, but these simple macramé hanging pots make great gifts too. Try one out this weekend.

Head to fashionjournal.com.au for a detailed step-by-step or for more DIY projects head to Nadia’s blog – thedustyfoxx.tumblr.com. Potted plants supplied by www.glasshaus.com.au

PEOPLE “ Sportswear is my staple, as a trainer and instructor. How do I make it more glam for coffee dates?”

- Cat, Melbourne

W O R D S

Ask Lauren Lauren Brain is a fashion blogger, Nova newsreader, journalist, 2011 LMFF Ambassador and all round fashion lover.

Dang girl! You’re a personal trainer? What I’m hearing is: you’re a hottie with a killer bod, and the permanent rosy glow of someone who pours endorphins into their system daily, while the rest of us over-air conditioned, dehydrated fools schlep around with a handbag full of bronzers and cheek stain (more on this little wonder product later), trying to achieve the same look. And you get paid for it? Good start. Get this girl a cocktail. Seriously though, I do understand the transition from cardio to coffee can be difficult, especially in terms of fashion. Luckily for you, we’re smack bang in the midst of a sports luxe renaissance, where lycra is king, and running shorts (for running errands, running to the shops or running late in – anything BUT running) have never been so omnipotent. Bomber jackets, neoprene, varsity tees – these are all huge in fashion right now – and they’re all inspired by the athletic styles and shapes of traditional exercise gear. One of the top fashion-meets-activewear brands – Lululemon – is a great place to start. Their clothes are almost too nice to wear to the gym! Then there’s Stella McCartney. What this British designer has done for a gal’s workout wardrobe…it’s revolutionary! If you want to step it up in the gymwear stakes, try adding a piece from her range for Adidas: a sporty shell jacket, or printed tee or hoodie. FJ: How long have you been drawing for? I have been drawing as far back as I can remember! As a child, my sister Olivia and I used to sticky tape A4 sheets of paper together and draw massive elaborate houses – each sheet was a room. At the age of 16 I was selling large canvas paintings in my Auntie’s gift shop. It was an organic progression from there ...

Colour and Skulls: An interview with illustrator Morgan Connoley

A

s prolific social media stalkers, we first discovered Morgan Connoley’s work via instagram. Better know as Colour and Skulls, Morgan describes her work as a ‘whimsy mix of inky, beautiful and macabre - a world where femininity and animal are united’. We caught up with Megan to chat about her inspiration and her future aspirations.

FJ: How would you describe your creative process? My first step is always a rough sketch. This sketch then develops into a finer drawing. I use Prismacolour watercolour pencils so once the drawing is complete I then watercolour in the detail (if applicable). Finally I scan or photograph my work and prepare it for print. Some pieces are manipulated digitally in Photoshop, some are left as is. I have never sold an original piece. Fact! FJ: What has been the highlight of your career to date? I have had a couple of highlights which I am a bit chuffed about. I recently collaborated with Westfield to produce a series of work for fashion week (last September), I then got back on board to produce another body of work for their Christmas campaign. I was their first ‘in-house’ artist. I was also very excited to illustrate a portrait of Owl Eyes for Fashion Journal earlier this year.

PAGE 24

American Apparel’s marle singlets, tees and long-sleeves are also perfect for on-trend gym layering, and Bonds has done some amazing activewear this season. Get a rotation of skinny-legged, cuffed, pocketed and printed trackies happening, and if you’re up for a shoe change – add a wedge sneaker to complete the polished look you’re after. Neon is having a moment right now, and nowhere does it fit more than at the gym. Look in any mag and you’ll see celebs on their ‘casual days’ wearing neon trainers from the likes of Nike or New Balance. These bad boys will take you from workout to that coffee date in no time. But the real key to nailing this transformation lies with your beauty arsenal. It’s no good getting the outfit right, if your hair is a hot, tangled mess. So, after your towel and water bottle, the most important item in your gym bag should be a can of dry shampoo. After that, throw in some good face wipes and a tinted moisturizer. If you need it (remember that rosy glow you’re entitled to as a perk of the job?), try the lip and cheek stain I mentioned. Benefit does an easy-to-use product called Benetint, that won’t make you look like you’ve stepped out of the gym with a face full of makeup. Overall – this look to me is about layering, comfort, and confidence. Now go and enjoy that coffee, I’m sure you deserve it! - Lauren Brain Head to Lauren’s blog – thecutandpaste.com – for more fashion posts and don’t forget to send in your own fashion dilemmas to asklauren@fashionjournal.com.au.

FJ: Where did the name Colour and Skulls originate from? I have always had a fascination with skulls, intrigued by Mexican culture and their Day of the Dead Celebrations.  This has provided a huge amount of inspiration for my work - hence the name. FJ: What’s in store for you next? Any exciting upcoming projects? I am a founding member of the Geelong Illustrators Collective. Geelong Illustrators is a small collective of young artists from Geelong and surrounds, designed to be a platform for illustrative artists to collaborate and inspire through group exhibitions, meets, mutual support and crafternoons. We aim to inspire each other to high standards of creativity with zero pretentiousness. Our debut exhibition opened May 31 and will run for 3 weeks at Meraki Gallery, Courthouse ARTS Geelong. Morgan has given us a limited edition Skulls & Pineapple print to giveaway to one lucky reader. To enter simply email giveaways@fashionjournal.com.au letting us know where you’d hang this gem and remember to like Morgan’s facebook page. www.facebook.com/morganconnoleyillustrator

Elle Graham “Paradise”


FASHION JOURNAL

Elle Graham has achieved a lot for someone her age. Celebrating her 21st birthday last month with a party in a five-metre teepee in her backyard where guests were required to dress as characters from Game of Thrones, the singer, songwriter and model is intriguingly humble.

I N T E R V I E W

Photography by Andy Hatton

I

t can be a hard world to navigate; a passionate musician dabbling in modeling risks not being treated seriously as a musician. Equally so, a model dabbling in music invites the same scorn. This is what is different about Elle Graham; the Townsville-born beauty rejected the allure of modeling to remain staidly focused on her education and her music. Graham intends to finish her studies before giving modeling her proper attention, but remains realistic: “Singing I can do when I’m grey,” she laughs. “Modeling has a definite use by date.” Graham’s music rides the current wave of sparse, melodic folk music led by a whispering yet distinct female vocal. Think CocoRosie, Regina Spektor or Imogen Heap of whom Graham is a massive fan. Her sparely produced videos are enchanting to watch; Graham’s flowing locks framing her soft face (refreshingly absent of sharp angles as is currently in vogue) as she sits primly behind the keyboard. Graham’s eyes flutter over to her fellow musicians as she sings, but it is when she locks eyes with the camera and flashes that naïve, almost childish smile that your heart skips a beat. At 16 the flaxen-haired beauty living in Townsville was scouted for Australia’s Next Top Model where she made it into the top 13 (for those not familiar the top 13 are the ones who make it into the model house). Instead of proceeding with the program, Graham decided to withdraw to focus on finishing her schooling, a decision showing wisdom beyond her years. Then, at

seventeen Graham was scouted again, this time by a modeling agency on the Gold Coast for international work and again turned it down to focus on her now budding music career. Now based in Melbourne Graham says she has found a home with Chadwick Models and the agency is extremely supportive and flexible around both her music and university study. The move to Melbourne came one year ago after Graham was in

“Modelling has such a short llifespan” town recording her first EP. “I was blown away by the city and the culture,” she says. When asked if she misses Townsville the answer is a resounding yes; “Paradise,” Graham calls it. There’s a small group of dedicated people in the fashion scene up there apparently but most of it is unpaid, Graham muses. She stills goes up there to play at friend’s parties and weddings though. We switch topics: if Graham had to choose between modeling and singing which would she choose? “There’s a nice crossover. It helps to have the look when you’re a musician, but music can take me through to old age,” she laughs.

the self-production of Heap that she especially admires though, something Graham hopes to do in her own musical career. Graham was also recently one of only eight musicians selected to participate in a songwriting master class with Chet Faker as part of Melbourne Music Week. “He’s awesome,” Graham beams. “I’d listened to a few of his tracks before I went but then I heard his guest vocals on Flume’s album and it was incredible.” That same week Graham also recorded vocals for the new Cat Empire album, filmed a video for Kimbra and saw Radiohead in concert. “I was just like, I love Melbourne!” she gushes. So what’s next in the pipeline for this 21-year-old beauty with the world at her feet? It’s quite a list: “I’m hoping to work on some more produced music videos with Andy Hatton. The new tracks I’m working on are going to have some cello and a choir element which I’m excited about,” she says. “Earlier this year I recorded some guest vocals for Luke Thomas and that will be out soon. I’ll also be promoting my EP and I’m working on a dance project that we’ll be submitting for Triple J’s Unearthed competition. I’ve got one year left at uni though and then I’m going to focus 100 percent on modeling because even though I’m only 21 modeling has such a short lifespan,” Graham laughs.

So which musicians does Graham look up to in their old age (everyone looks old when you’re 21)? “James Blake, Little Dragon, Imogen Heap,” she answers. It is

Haze

With family ties in both the fashion and optometry industries – it seemed written in the stars that Asha Zomer would grow up to design eyewear. Her label, (h)AZE, is Australian designed, handmade in France, and made from Italian materials. There’s a mixture of classic vintage styles with a modern twist, taking inspiration from the shapes and styles of the 1950s, through to today. The latest collection features 7cm thick acetate, cat-eye shapes, keyhole bridges, frosted and polished finishes blended with accents of turquoise, orange, pearl purple and clear crystal pink, as well as edgier metal frames with mirrored gold and silver lenses. (h)AZE eyewear is also 100% scriptable. Four-eyes nationwide rejoice – now there’s no need to choose between fashion and functionality.

Foxton Lane

Melbourne label Foxton Lane reinterprets traditional, timeless and classic European designs with a modern twist. Specialising in women’s tops, bags and skirts, the products are all made on a limited run basis using material off-cuts, reducing the label’s carbon footprint; another fitting way to revert back to the (less polluted) practices of yesteryear. This emerging Melbourne label was created by Cassie Brain – lawyer turned fashion designer pursing her lifelong creative dreams. Versatile and stylish, the range caters for women who want classic fashion both for and outside the office.

My Global Hunter

My Global Hunter was born out of a love for fashion and handcrafted pieces. Working with artisans from around the world the label creates statement jewellry using semi-precious stones including onyx, quartz and topaz. These stones are teamed with sterling silver, 24-carat gold and hammered brass to create unique, weathered designs. The rings, earrings and necklaces can be mixed and matched to take from casual daywear into evening with ease. Starting at less than $80 this exotic handcrafted jewellery won’t blow the budget. At FJ, we love the Beehave necklace, hot at only $65.

My Boyfriends Back

Designed and made in New Zealand, My Boyfriends Back summer 2014 collection, The Lust & Found, offers an effortless and fresh range, which was showcased at Wellington Fashion Week. Clashing, monochromatic prints are juxtaposed with bold hues, evoking the summer spirit and a sense of playful recklessness. Delicate knits are fused with box-shaped, raw-cut mesh panelling, while muted tones contrast against vibrant, floral suiting and printed, playful dresses. With a throwback to the 30s and 60s, The Lust & Found silhouettes are loose and slender with a feminine flair. Keeping with the label’s signature style, My Boyfriends Back balances contemporary style with classic designs, allowing wearers to take pieces from day to play, simply by swapping Cons for heels. The collection will soon be available from Sydney’s Kansai Karnival. It’s also stocked in boutiques nationwide in New Zealand and available online. www.myboyfriendsback.co.nz

A fresh-faced fashion label is upon us with self-taught designers Hannah and Dylan, creating clothing label Twiceshy. Formed in August 2012, the young New Zealand lovers have since grown and gathered a modest yet loyal following, using their big dreams to fuel their creativity. A soon to be summer favourite, Twiceshy specialise in muscle tanks and cropped singlets perfect for those hot sunny days we’re daydreaming about this gloomy winter. With signature tank, Chase the Sun, available in four neutral shades, the couple behind Twiceshy know how to make a soft singlet simplistic with an element of edge.

The Sartorialist CLOSER Scott Schuman

Daft Punk Random Access Memories

Penguin UK / RRP $35.00

Scott Schuman (founder of thesartorialist.com) is back with a second installment of street fashion inspiration. Like his uber-famous blog and previous venture in publishing, this book is filled with beautifully fashionable men and women who work the streets like a runway. This edition moves past his previous focus on the New York sartorial scene as Schuman captures images of human style from as far afield as Seoul, London, Rio de Janeiro and Paris, creating a greater understanding of global style. Like his blog, this book is set to become a hugely respected and influential resource in the fashion industry and – of course – for the fashionistas on the streets.

R E V I E W S

Books & Music

Compressing this album into 90 words is quite the task. The French duo have been producing surprising albums since 1997 – Homework was playful, Discovery was landmark, Human After All – well, every career has low points. RAM, their fourth proper studio release, is a great surprise, it’s Daft Punk ditching their progressive signature sound for the glam styles and production techniques of the 70/80’s. The result - complete high fidelity, the more you listen the more you’re enveloped. Do not miss this record.

Vintage Menswear

The National

A Collection from the vintage showroom

Trouble Will Find Me

Roy Luckett

Thames & Hudson / RRP $59.95

This band goes from stride to stride – every new release sees a more mature, ambitious and accomplished sound. Matt Berninger’s vocals are rich and melancholic, they really make this music hit hard at home for any form of existential mishap happening in the world around us. Trouble Will Find Me does play to intellectualism in music, it’s not the type of record you play on a road trip, but one that requires your attention – intellectual without being pretentious. Humiliation and Graceless are the standouts.

A good book on vintage menswear is as rare as a 1940s flying jacket, a polar exploration suit or vintage French denim (all of which you’ll find featured in this little gem). This vast collection of rare 20th-century pieces were curated by the Vintage Showroom – considered connoisseurs of vintage clothing and whose collection is usually limited only to stylists and fashion designers. The book is divided into three sections (sportswear, militaria and workwear) and is spread over 300 beautifully illustrated pages of vintage tailoring and game-changing designs. A truly beautiful hardback necessary for menswear enthusiast and fashion lovers alike.

Parquet Courts

Banksy Wall and piece

Light Up Gold

Random House Australia / RRP $39.95

Banksy is perhaps the most notorious street artist who has ever lived and has decorated walls, bridges and even zoos throughout the world with his stencils – now his artistic genius can decorate your coffee table too. Wall and Piece is a collection of his best work in a fully illustrated colour volume. The book outlines his witty, subversive stencil art and while many of the pieces have appeared in other texts on the artist, the images featured here are of an exceptionally high standard and in a large format so Banksy fans will definitely find it a worthwhile purchase.

What happens when Texans pick up shop, move to Brooklyn and start jamming everyday? A special kind of I don’t give a shit indie/cowboy Americana happens – and it’s awesome. Parquet Courts debut is lyrically quite disheartening, making a pretty contentious statement that the state of the world is fucked, its themes blend well with the tension that’s oozing musically from the record. For an album from a bunch of stoners, we recommend it highly.

Levi’s Celebrates 140 years of the 501

P A R T Y P I X

Hundreds of Sydney’s most influential and fashionable peeps descended upon the Global Gallery in Paddington to celebrate 140 years of the iconic Levi’s 501 in early May. Guests included Timomatic, NRL stars George & Tom Burgess, Celebrity Apprentice Contestant John Steffensen, actors, models and fashion bloggers who were treated to the indie-electro beats of Flight Facilities and DJ’s SoftWar. The event showcased the timelessness of the 501 with the ‘Installation of Innovation’ – a timeline tracing the history and evolution of the 501.

Cascade First Harvest Ale Launch Hobba Eatery & Bar in Prahran hosted a VIP cocktail event on Wednesday 22 May to celebrate the launch of the highly regarded 2013 Cascade First Harvest Ale, a limited edition handcrafted beer (only 5000 cases have been released). 2012 MasterChef contestant Ben Milbourne created a bespoke menu on the night to complement the beer, using artisan Tasmanian produce and ingredients.
