Born in Japan, Hiro Kimura started his career as a 21-year-old fashion stylist in New York, returning to Japan to work for Vogue Japan, Vogue Taiwan and Japanese Harpers Bazaar. Hiro turned to photography in 2008, returning to the Big Apple to live and work. Now 34 years of age, Hiro continues to freelance and photographed this issue’s most exciting ready to wear clothes.

Belying his youthful looks and, dare we say it, chiseled cheekbones, Nick Hudson is quickly becoming a fashion industry veteran. One of the hardest working photographers in the biz, Hudson has spent the majority of his 14 years (firstly as a model, then photographer) traversing the cities of New York, LA, London, Tokyo and Sydney, his home town, shooting high-end fashion for magazines like GQ Australia and Madison, as well as portraits for Rolling Stone. “Nostalgia, minimalism, and effortless beauty” are recurring themes in Nicks work. One of the luckiest men in the industry, Hudson can count Aussie sirens Elle McPherson, Jennifer Hawkins and ‘Mrs Orlando Bloom’, Miranda Kerr, amongst his coterie of subjects. He also shot an advertising campaigns for Dion Lee, the acclaimed emerging Australian designer. _ _ _ _

Sydney-based designers Felix, Huw and Arran caught panellists collective eye at the November 2010 GQ men of the year Awards, taking out first place. Two years prior to this prestigious event the creative trio teamed up to execute a vision of ‘clothing with real quality, purpose and originality’, in short bringing the Gentleman back after a couple of decades of poor male dressing.

Think the best of 1940s, 50s and 60s resortstyle wear with a cool modern twist. Bold coloured dress shoes funked down for casual use and patterned short sleeves. Available in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Asia, Canada and the UK, Vanishing Elephant is the bomb. WWW.VANISHINGELEPHANT.COM

Jamie Fame Not just for vagabonds, pilgrims, wanderers in search of music, work or artistic career. Jamie Fame is Queensland’s upcoming label with a deliberately dressed down edgy look for men. Casual dress shoes and lace up boots popular in decades gone by, this labels has strong influences of the street scene, the urban constructed world and the souls who reside here struggling to remain individual in an encroachingly homogenous world. Urband chic in strong shouldered jackets with casual edges. The blurred line between cardigan and hoodie. Gaining popularity in NZ as well as in Australia, this brand is worth keeping an eye on. WWW.JAMIEFAME.COM

The spirit of possibilities and that excited feeling you get from travelling. That is the feel and look of Limedrop, designed by husband and wife team Clea Garrick and Nathan Price. After meeting in Darwin then moving to Melbourne, their knack of combining soft and strong prints into modern dressing piqued the interest of the design world. Especially after winning hottest look in Spring Racing 2010 at the 3rd Annual Chambord ‘Shine’ awards. Their carousel horse in digital print dress highlighted the designers’ ability to tailor classically with new age fabrics. Lime Drop’s tropical summer ‘Calypso’ collection 11/12 made its debut on the Australian Fashion week calendar in 2011. Flowing sleeves and dress lengths meet structured lines and bold colours. Men’s short and long sleeves and tees scream ‘Poolside chic’, inspired by the wealthy poolside set. Lingerie range Elle De emerged as the solution to the enduring problem of how to maintain beautiful shapes when the outerwear is cut very low or very high, without exposing sheer or lacy under garments. Alongside clothing Limedrop’s accessories range includes silk bowties and scarves, jewellery items are quirky and playful made from American Cherry wood or two base gold and black laminate layers.

Lime drop

Stolen girlfriends club collection

In 2005 three kooky kiwi surfers got together to make a few clothes for themselves and friends. With no formal design background, their creative matrix got tongues a-wagging and thus the label was born. Between then and now the brand retains a rockand-roll feel to their clothes, with amassing global sophistication as they popularity increases. Their collections for spring/summer 2011/12 titled ‘The Big Come Down’ is an explosionof colour using inhouse print of the of Karl Maughan in shorts, dresses and short sleeve forms for women. Use of 100% silk georgette silk is the perfect fusion of technology and beauty.

three over one

Have you picked up a black and white photo of people in days gone by and marvelled at their clothes? The way a man can make dress shirts in short and long sleeves look so easy to wear playing tennis, full suited men riding bicycles, braces slung over rolled up sleeves, short pants with quality leather shoes, vests worn over sleeves on a weekend. This is Three Over One as they welcome nostalgia back into the 21st century and beyond. Design inspiration is drawn from the appreciation of attitudes, styles, quality of workmanship of the past.

There is no hastily put together trending here. Durable and authentic fabrics are used, as they were in the past before a value was put on mass production. Collections are modelled on a working man’s wardrobe of the 1930s and 1940s and is best described as rugged and relaxed elegance.

they welcome nostalgia back into the 21st century

Kissin Cussin

Jess and Hayley spent eight months in Talalla bay, Sri Lanka in 2004, volunteering as part of the humanitarian post-tsunami effort. The colours, people, smells, flora and prints in local markets left an indelible print on them both, so much so they founded ‘Kissin Cussin’, sourcing prints for feminine Bohemiun dresses and easy- to-wear pieces that reflected island and tribal lifestyle living. Their demographic is largely 18-25 year old women, but any like-minded free spirited girl could pull these pieces together and reflect what the designers fell in love with about Sri Lanka and India. Kissincussin Clothes for comfort, playful yet feminine. The brand has a firm base in ethical practice and this was intentionally done so. Jess and Hayley wanted to empower local Sri Lankan women and help a community at the same time, initially hiring a few women, which grew to twelves as part of an ethical production facility. The power of generation Y when they put their minds to something. Love love love this brand.

Mercurialist An accesories brand from the underworld.Mercurialist offers a counter-culture approach to fashion accessorising, challenging conformists to see beauty with pieces which personify death. Vials, vampire pendants, icons, dinosaur or bones of other underworld or vile creatures are created by brother and sister team. Their current collection, ‘Danse Macabre’ is inspired by the old world before Buffy and Twilight made blood sucking standard practice. Accessories favour a distressed look, metals are dark oxidised or gold toned. They are intended to remind wearers of the frailty of life, with a ‘post-apocalyptic’ twist.

Icon Brand

Born out of the warm summer days of Byron Bay back in 1977, three Aussies began producing jewellery pieces that spoke out about the laid-back north coast lifestyle and has evolved and grown as the three live, work and play together, This Aussie brand oozes surf, music and great times and as a youth-inspired premium men’s accessories brand it has grown to include women’s accessories, popular with 18-35 and beyond. Fedora and Castro hats, truckers caps, belts and jewellery are made for lovers of music and the good life. Uni-sex bracelets, necklaces and rings use heavily oxidised pendants, leather pieces and roped styles call up images of late nights, reggae, rodeo and surfing. Their signature ‘trick wallet’ utilises premium stitching and cool designs. Their ‘El Verano’ (The Summer) Collection takes inspiration from a recent trip to the laidback streets of Mexico. Their Summer 2012 collection ‘Pieces of Nowhere’, inspired by the tale of a touring band is reminiscent of life on the road, was used in collaboration with London menswear designer Martine Rose for the London Fashion Week in September, fitting with her vision of finding distressed objects and giving them new life. Available in the UK, USA as well as Australia it is likely Icon Brand’s laid-back living approach is catching as designers stay true to themselves, hoping Icon Brand emerges as more of a community, supporting emerging artists in photography, art and music.

lela jacobs

Grateful for Lela Jacobs to be sacked from her previous job is a huge understatement. ‘Clearly my heart wasn’t in it. I couldn’t get enthused about a product I didn’t believe in’ the NZ designer reflects. Lela kept her integrity and belief in sustainability and design (NOT copy) and voila, her creations were born. Sole trading took a turn for partnership, taking on a business partner in Sarah Crowe as the brand’s popularity grew.

In the pursuit for something different the Summer 11/12 collection ‘Echoes of Awe’ give us smoking jackets, pullovers with eye-catching design, sheer suits, use of hoods, using high quality fabrics such as silk. The clothes reflect the designer’s firm commitment to pushing boundaries and supporting local artists among other qualities that she readily admits are not ‘focused on 100% saleability’. Lela Jacob customers are head turners for all the right reasons. They are influential and unconventional and command respect.

live and breathe nobody

Nobody Denim

denim /

Nick and John Condilis live and breathe denim and under microscope we may see blue denim coursing through their veins. After twenty years working in a denim laundry the brothers started Nobody, as a means of producing a locally designed and made Melbourne brand, focusing on great quality and innovative product that inspires you to be who you want to be. Its ethos centres on having ‘No design heroes’ beyond integrity, and accreditation from the Australian Ethical Clothing standard, which translates to a completely transparent supply chain and manufacturing process means they lead by example. They are keen to be a part of a ‘meet your maker’ campaign, with the name of the actual person who made your jeans printed at the back of the jeans, as opposed to a faceless machine.Primarily produced for Generation Y, their denim wearers demand excellence in all aspects of life including what they wear. This includes girls who want to dress and feel sexy and sophisticated without feeling like they’re something they’re not. Producing entirely under one roof using unique tools and techniques, they have total control over the jean process, enabling the vision of ‘the perfect jean’ to be tweaked as they see fit. Their first store opened in 2006 in Fitzroy, amid the students, vagrants, addicts and free thinkers as a kind of ‘denim apothecary with a gallery’, employees are ‘no pressure’ denim experts. The second store in Chapel St in 2008 opened as a ‘denim destination’ for best fit. The world needs more Nobodys.

PAM

Encapsulating and celebrating the creativity of the individual, this brand deliberately blurs lines between art, music and creative projects and is becoming a way of life for international freethinkers wishing to swim against the tide of same-ity-same sameness. From inception in 2000 creative geniuses Mischa Hollenbach and Shauna T’s focus is on fashion mixed with the fine arts, design and creative flow. Their accessory line includes digital printed carabiners (yes, think rock climbing), bags in unique shapes and styles, shoes that are sneaker/ brogue cross and fresh takes on stadium jackets. Rare books and LP records not seen since the shady side of the 1980s form part of the cult retinue. Sunglasses, caps, tees and beanies have a distinctly art/ music feel. Women’s fashion showcases tailored shorts, arty totes and tees and groovy moccasins. Mischa’s personal interest has extended into his own art exhibitions in Japan, his shows reflecting this blurred line between fashion/ art/ design and fine art. This brand is evolving and expanding and is a breath of fresh air in an increasingly homogenised fashion world.

/ modern wearable

After spending years working for big International design houses, Australianborn Robert Rigutto returned home with an impressive resume under his belt. Tired of seeing mass-produced jeans and tees Robert and his Hong Kong based business partner set out to design ‘Modern wearable sport wear with a twist and a point of view’. Influenced by the military, men’s uniforms and masculine dressing, he shows integrity to these design ideals using bright colours for funky hoodies and casual jackets. This brand has wide age group appeal and oozes self-confidence and a laid back ‘no worries’ lifestyle. Former Men’s Designer Director at Donna Karan and Calvin Klein as well as Design Director of Kenneth Cole he most certainly knows his menswear inside out.

sport wear with a twist and a point of view /

Citizen Deconstructed

His focus is on the ‘fit’ of a garment, something he feels is lacking in Australia. Pieces are urban, industrial and deconstructed and offer a modern twist on cargoes, sweats and hoodies. His collections include Slacker Chic and Workwear and are a bold use of denims in jackets, hats, vests and trench coat. He would like to see Australian retailers to take design risks beyond the same boring old brands to take Mens design into a new era.

Mr Simple

‘Simply genuine, genuinely simple’. Boating shorts, jackets, shoes, shirts and tees for days on boats, camping and road trips. Mr Simple’s menswear garments are timeless casual classics that span generations of age groups, looking just as great on a 70 year old as they would on a 20 year old. Made to withstand more than just a few washes, like much of the drivel found in current stores, Mr Simple clothing is built to last. The range includes accessories such as satchels and backpacks, over night bags and kids backpacks. WWW.MRSIMPLE.COM.AU

‘Life is like a cup of tea’ its all in how you make it’. It’s a simple premise to begin a designer clothing brand, but the difficulty lies in remaining true to form. Chinese-Malaysian born sisters Rowena, Juliana and Angela Foong migrated to Australia in 1988 and launched the brand in 2004 as a collective expression of memories of growing up. ‘Weaving memory into clothing, we explore the ability of fashion to unfold a great tale’, enthuses Rowena from her Newcastle based studioInspired by ordinary people doing extraordinary things, High Tea with Mrs Woo is steeped in artistic, architectural and environmental influence. From a leaf to the highest mountain, the colour of the sky before a storm or art houses in Japan. . Faraway places, possibility and adventure, story telling is a large influence on charming and timeless clothes designs. Unique necklines, sleeves, lapels and motifs, totes and halters combine classic tailoring with timeless oriental print. The brand sits halfway between the fashion and the craft world, they are individualistic, made mindfully with high quality natural materials and are not trendbased at all. The sisters believe that valuing, resonating and extending the goodness in ourselves makes for a better world for all.

High Tea with Mrs Woo

Francis Leon

Neccessity is the mother of invention, or in this case frustration at not being able to find tailored women’s clothes with a menswear influence forced this hand of fate. Relaxed styling is Francis Leon. No fuss elegance, comfortable pieces in leather or other natural fibres with a quirky detail. After studying at Brisbane’s Q.U.T , Sophie and Mieka teamed up with Head Designer Jo Turner in 2009 to create a women’s range that reflected the modern Australian woman. That means cool styling. And that means slightly tough. Mieke says their current summer range is influenced by the ethereal lost ‘Grey Garden’ type heroine shackled to an ‘External Sunshine’ style beach house. Their winter 2012 range is ‘tough’, inspired by girls with attitudes, superheroes and bootleg comics. Out-of-thisuniverse jackets are named after superheroes (the outer wear persona). Basic pieces (shirts, pants) are the daytime alter-ego. Francis Leon is a fashion label with a slightly tongue-in-cheek attitude to fashion. Followers are of a ‘style demographic’ rather than an age demographic, A nod to the reality that a 45 year old woman can just as easily pull off a look as a 22 year old. With their second store opening in Melbourne this year and stores set to open in Hong Kong, Switzerland, Scotland and the UK’s Harvey Nichols global customers are soon to recognise ‘something special to wear everyday’ is a pretty cool way to live.

S ong for the mute

TWR / Children

first few seasons. We won the award the LMFF designer award this year, so were also invited to the first ever men’s fashion week in Singapore. We were honored to close the event as well and I think we sold more tickets than any other show during that week. They love us in Singapore and we have been invited back there to show our collections there in March 2012. Song For The Mute has also been shown in Paris this year, where nine different countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Japan and Romania picked up the label. It’s great because we never planned any of this – Song For The Mute started as a hobby, a side project. Q. What does the future hold for young Australian designers in the international fashion sphere?

Song For The Mute (Melvin Tanaya): Q. There is a wealth of international knowledge behind the label – how has this informed your designs? A. Yes, each of us has travelled around so much since we were little – Layna originally came from Paris and I came from Indonesia so we’ve both been around the world a lot! I think different ways of life, values and cultures have had a strong contribution in our designs. For example, in our next collection you can see the color pallet and silhouette are very Zen, which comes back to never forgetting where you came from. Culture has always played a big part in the way Layna and I have designed, as we both come from an Asian background.

A. I think more people in the industry are interested in what we do now. I recently went to Singapore to see our stockists, our main buyer being Inhabit who stock Alexander Wang as well as other international designers. But the main label I saw in their womenswear was Dion Lee. It is so great to see that people are seeking fresh, new Australian labels. I think our label is coming at the right time. Q. Any other future projects SFTM on the horizon? A. Womenswear is definitely on the cards as Layna is originally a womenswear designer. Currently, Song For The Mute has collaborated with Hampton - a jewelry label from Melbourne – to produce our first jewelry range. Only four styles were crafted, so each piece is going to be limited. We have also started doing bags, which have been received well, and next season we are looking at possibly collaborating with a shoemaker. Q. Please describe your design aesthetic?

Q. You have a strong back ground in graphic design, when did fashion become of interest? A. I always had this idea to come up with my own fashion label but when I first started I didn’t have any knowledge of fashion design, which is why I approached Layna. After I finished my Masters (in Commerce) I wanted to create something on the side as a hobby. It was initially going to be a printed graphic tee shirt label, so I contacted Layna and talked to her about the concept. Eventually, the idea for Song For The Mute evolved from there. The graphic printed idea was then scraped, as we believed we could communicate ourselves more effectively by just doing interesting shapes. Q. How has the label been received by an international fashion realm? A. We have been very fortunate I think. This is our fourth collection and we are still very new, but we are quite lucky in that nine countries have picked us up now. Initially, buyers from Hong Kong and Singapore requested to see our collections from the

A. It changes every season. Merging constructions and shapes to heighten the natural qualities of the fabrics is at the core of Song For The Mute. Fabric is the DNA of the label and when we source fabrics, it will actually talk to us and then will lend itself. We stand by choosing to dye our fabrics naturally as well, its something that is very important to us. Layna and I don’t actually draw anything, we pick up the fabric and let it drape and do what it wants, allowing it to create the actual aesthetic of the garment. We don’t draw anything until the piece is done, which is working backward I guess! It’s more of a conceptual approach rather than being aesthetic based and depends on how we feel at the moment. Q. What was the design concept behind the next SS12 collection – Milieu 2? A. Milieu 2 marks our first serious foray to create our own fabrics. Layna and I started off with a linen that been tied in Persimmon juice and charcoal, we dried it in the sun for about three to fourth months to age. The idea being that it would produce a particular look, where how the garment feels and how it flows is the actual silhouette of the piece. We also experimented with balloon flowers that

were basket died to achieve this uneven color within the fabric. This current season is all about us trying to manipulate the fabric during a pre-production stage. Regarding its story - Milieu 2 is the continuation of Milieu 1. The color palette exhibits a lot of beige, sand, bark and mud hues that all relate to the earth. Milieu 1 revolved around Layna dealing with the loss off her grandmother and it was mostly black and raw with a cocoon shell silhouette that you just want to wrap in and hide. The idea of Milieu 2 was about dealing with those feelings, coming to terms with the sadness and embracing it. Hence why the colors are more evolved, as coming into life and looking at the brighter side is celebrated. Q. Describe for me the quintessential ‘Song For The Mute’ male? A. He is a creative man that takes pride in his individuality and is aware of trends but does not necessarily follow them. He always thinks about the unique cross roads of comfort and utility, where it needs to do what it is designed to do. However, the piece needs to communicate a certain story about that person. It also needs to be universal, we don’t want our garments to be seen as a costume, it is supposed to be worn daily.

Q. Where did the name ‘Song For The Mute’ stem from?

A. The name is quite personal to both Layna and myself. The core idea revolves around speaking out for people that don’t have a chance to. Coming from an Asian background, creativity is often seen at the dead end from our family. It is preferable to be involved with finance or commerce – something with more security. We are supposed to do what is expected of us, whereas this is our way to communicate how we really feel and our thoughts. Although we are all unique individuals, there is always someone out there experiencing the same thing. This premise is what I first pitched to Layna at the start of the label and she fell in love with it. We designed the first collection without the name – we knew what it was going to represent, but didn’t actually have a name. writer: christina nathan

Q. Did designing menswear come naturally to Layna? A. Layna became involved in men’s wear because of the label. I didn’t come from a fashion background, she just instinctively gravitated to menswear so I could put in my point of view and she could put in hers. Layna strives for the challenge, I think she fell in love with menswear shortly after she started doing it because she learnt how constrictive it actually is. Womenswear is fairly limitless, you can go crazy with many details, whilst in menswear if you go too far people think you are wearing a costume. Layna likes to push the envelope, she just needs to know how far. She believes that menswear is more beautiful on the inside and male clients are generally more loyal. We both feel as though the brand has been built together with our clients and they will now follow the Song For The Mute Story.

CHRONICLES OF NEVER (Gareth Moody): Q. What was most difficult in penetrating the overseas fashion market?

Chronicles of Never

A. There are of course many factors into successfully breaking into the overseas market. However, the single most difficult aspect at this point in time is pricing where the mark up in Europe, for example, is often set at three times the Australian. Concurrently, our products are then set in direct competition with local, more established top end labels. Our products for the most part are created using European and Japanese fabrications, designed and produced in Australia - I can't compete with made in China, therefore I don't. My position in the overseas market is of a boutique nature. Q. What is the most challenging aspect of being founder, director and designer of CON? A. The most challenging factor in wearing all hats is knowing when and how to take one hat off and put the other hat on.

writer: christina nathan Q. Describe for me the inspiration behind your diffusion line Black Noise White Rain? A. Black Noise White Rain is a relative of Chronicles Of Never, it's built on the same principles however using more price pointed fabrications and construction methods, the styles are more casual and relaxed. It's a dressed down version. In today's market I feel there is a need to service all ends, this is impossible with a product/label of the nature of CĂ˜N due to price point and it's niche nature. Q. What is your design philosophy or strategy? A. I approach each season with the same handwriting. The labels have a signature style, therefore the outcome is somewhat known to me from the onset. However, that being said, the trick is to not get boxed into the parameters you create. It's a delicate balance. I do not have a design philosophy as such, I merely know where I stand with my likes and dislikes. Q. You’ve covered a range mediums throughout your designs, do you have a preference for one over another? A. Clothing in general is my favored medium to date, it's tactile and practical. Clothing provides warmth, comfort and protection. Q. What inspired you to start designing womenswear? A. If you build it they will come.

/ providing warmth, comfot and protection /

Q. What direction is CON story due to take next? A. The collection has become more refined, sharp and minimal this AW, maturing somewhat I suppose. The story as a whole? well this is unknown even to me, I guess we will have to see what tomorrow brings. Q. Being multi-directional, what would be your most dominate influence? A. Life.

Q. What were the biggest challenges you faced in the expansion of the label?

Auto nomy

writer: christina nathan

A. When you expand there are so many changes and demands. From a team of two - myself and my wife Simone - to now having production assistants, online and retail sales staff. Q. How do you maintain a clear brand identity when expanding alongside rival labels in Australia? A. Brand identity is communicated through everything you do, from the smallest thing like a shop bag to design and presentation of our stores. Autonomy has established itself throughout the years offering a distinctive mix for products and designs. From our dependable basics range and printed t-shirts to fine cut shirts in European fabrics. This depth of product sets us apart and allows the customer flexibility in buying.

AUTONOMY (Nick Demkiw): Q. When did fashion design take precedence over your DJ career? A. My Dj career began in 1994 playing is various warehouse parties and clubs across Melbourne. Autonomy began in 2003 around the same time I released my first full-length album. The two did in fact co-exist for some time, but late nights Djing and the fast pace of the fashion industry were testing. I came to the cross roads with music and Djing, do I continue to write music and pursue touring and writing or do I continue to work on nurturing an already growing brand? Fashion won, ultimately fashion and design was my profession and music was left for after hours.

they welcome nostagia back into the 21st century and beyond /

A. Yes, we have received interest from New Zealand and have a number of overseas online customers. In the meantime we have be concentrating on our Australian market, having increased our wholesale stockist base this coming season. In regards to online we are in the process of upgrading our store to have an increased functionality, easier navigation and a greater variety of products. Q. Describe for me the story behind your SS11 line – Harmony By Contrast?

A. Yes, music has had an influence as does cinema, the arts and history. I am continually inspired by all around me. I feel my background in Graphic Design directs me the most, the natural ability to work with color, shape and texture. I am very particular when it comes to finishing on garments and the proportions of various elements, it’s all about creating the right level of balance and contrast.

A. The Autonomy Spring 11 collection is inspired by the American Coast. The look reflected the times and the ‘boys’ who, regardless of what they were wearing, were always perfectly in sync with their times and set the tone. Also reflecting their carefree attitude. From outerwear that references outdoor pursuits, through functional and relaxed garments. The harmony is found by contrast of blanket stripes, colour blocking and mis-matched checks. Treatments that imply the ravages of time are applied to many garments, while graphic tees are inspired by road trip souvenirs and vintage thrift-store finds. Blue emerges as a key colour of the range. Mixing different tones of blue in shirting, jersey stripes in dark navy and marine and electric blue denim. Navy essentials such as the Leo shorts and Captains blazer create all-blue looks.

Q. When do you feel the most autonomous?

Q. Is there a medium that you enjoying working with the most?

A. With my printed designs I always put something in that is left of center, this would be fueled by my sense of humor and fascination for the Avant-garde.

A. Coming from a Graphic Design and music background I enjoy working most in the digital medium. I am able to test ideas and work up complex designs and communicate accurately to my makers via detail specifications and diagrams. After studying just about every area including painting, sculpture, photography, design, textiles, wood and metal craft, I find digital mediums provides me the best results. I can experiment with more ideas, compare them and choose the best solution. It really is a digital playground.

Q. Has have your music roots influenced your fashion design concepts?

/

Q. Aside from your thriving online store, is penetrating the overseas fashion climate on your agenda?

Q. Who is the ‘Autonomy’ man? A. A fashion conscience guy who appreciates quality design and aesthetics, not only in fashion but all aspects.

We love Nobody’s current collection, in particular their high waisted leather inspired pants. Summer is coming to an end, and as the cooler months approach why not rug up with these beauty’s, and a simple white top. Nothing screams ‘beautiful and chic’ more. For those of you who prefer something edgier, would love Nom*D current T-shirt collection. Keep an eye out for the spider web design in particular which would look great paired with a pair of skinny jeans and some wedges.
