Hey, gidday mates! What was a mild winter is now turning into a diabolically cold and wet spring, with the occasional sunny day to brighten things up. So it seems a little incongruous to be pushing warm-weather-clothing in the current climate, but surely we’re only a week or two away from balmier days. SURELY. To wit, I got my hands on these Missoni pieces last week, and they’re a far cry from what I’ve been wearing for the past few months (overcoat and black jeans or black leather jacket and stonewash jeans). The pants are significantly wider and higher waisted than anything I usually wear, and the jacket hits above the hips in that perfect 1950s crop. This stuff is elegant as all hell, but works perfectly with a white T-shirt and white socks and my classic Dr Martens. Prime example of this East Villager-by-way-of-New Zealand’s take on Italian luxury. Va bene?Click to Continue!
Gucci — Jenny said it best while the show was in process: “People talk about how crazy this stuff is, but imagine how good it’d look if you just wore one piece at a time with a pair of jeans?” And proving her point, this outfit walked out.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Happy New Year!!! Back to life, back to reality. Early January is always a weird time — everyone’s still in holiday mode but obsessively trying to cling on to their resolutions; after all, 17 days is all that’s required to create a habit (I have no science to back that up, FYI). I guess I’m no exception. I worked out at Equinox in Soho with Moti Ankari on Saturday and I even found myself promising to go at least five times per week in 2016. I rate the likelihood of success at around 33.7%.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! If you’re in NZ or Australia or any other country that wakes up before we do here in America, Merry Christmas! If you’re not, Bah Humbug! We’ll get to you tomorrow. You might have noticed I’m obsessed shearling. Must be the New Zealander in me. I picked up this jacket from the sample rack at the Z Zegna offices a couple of years ago, and I pull it out of the closet whenever the temperatures drop below a tolerable level. The best thing — it’s so thick and warm that it works perfectly with the style-agenda I’m pushing this winter: Great jacket, white T-shirt, jeans, leather lace-ups. Harry Styles-chic, if you will. Invest in shearling (second-hand or new), and don’t ever underestimate the power of a great bomber. Try this one at home.Click to Continue!
