Hey, gidday mates! I’m writing to you live from 30,000 feet above ground — Jenny and I are en route to Greece (Santorini, Poros and Athens) — so next time you hear from me, expect to see white buildings with blue domes and plenty of ocean meeting the horizon. But first… On Friday we caught a car out east to The Hamptons with the team from Ray-Ban and a ton of bloggers, and spent the weekend running around from pool to beach to restaurant to club to way-the-hell-out-in-the-middle-of-the-sea for fly-boarding. Needless to say, it was good times. Our only requirement: Remix seven pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses. Check out ours!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! We DJ every Saturday night at The Handy Liquor Bar in Soho, and because it’s always such a big, late night, we try to keep things as healthy as possible during the day — first things first, working out. Jenny’s a big fan of cardio, I prefer calisthenics, but if she wants a race, who am I to say no? (She won.)Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! We came, we saw, we conquered. NYC to Milan and back, Thursday to Tuesday, four and a half days, in and out. Or so we thought.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Dressing well for summer requires maximum look with minimum clothing, so as always, I’m currently on the hunt for perfect basics from denim to t-shirts to leather jackets. In our quest for summer looks, Jenny and I teamed up with Armani Exchange to showcase the brand’s new summer collection, and road-test the aforementioned denim, t-shirts, jackets; and in Jenny’s case, dresses, et al. They’re classic pieces with plenty of visual pop — perfect for the hotter months. We shot these photos over the course of a weekend in Manhattan, and as you’ll see, we experienced all the weather. ALL THE WEATHER. It started off sunny, got a little cloudy, got a lot cloudy, started drizzling, then bucketed down. See the results, below.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! We’re in that crossover period between spring showers and summer heat right now in New York City, and the atmosphere outside feels not unlike the inside of a mouth. Not my favorite. So, lightweight raincoats are an absolute must because you never know when the skies are going to open and drench all and sundry. I say lightweight, because anything heavier will result in a similar drenching, from sweat. Ewwwwww. Jenny and I took a spin around Nolita with our mate Kat Irlin yesterday, and paired our trench coats with easy T-shirts, broken-in denim and Chuck Taylors. Fun fact: The jeans that Jenny’s wearing are my 10-year-old Ksubi Van Winkles, which I bought in Auckland in 2006, and wore every day for the next two years. No joke. They were one color when I got them, every fade you see is entirely legit. (Pity I’ve outgrown them.)Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Another day, another gratuitous make out series featuring me and Jenny, shot by our friend Kat Irlin (@kat_in_nyc). For this set of images, we were inspired by the 80s movies of John Hughes — Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, et al. Think: Kids running amok after the prom in dresses with Chuck Taylors, denim jackets with ties, plus plenty of smeared lipstick. And then we got rained on. The results, below.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Happy Monday, happy Monday. I thought I’d switch things up a bit today and do an outfit post featuring Jenny, because we just got our hands on a bunch of the Guess Originals X A$AP Rocky collection, and the pieces we picked up looked better on her than they did on me. But I was still obsessed. I mean, it’s 90s-throwback-logo-heavy-boyish-streetwear. What’s not to love? Also, the launch party was without a doubt the best night out of New York Fashion Week — A$AP Rocky and friends performing live at The Box with giant candy jars on every table in the room, so they had me at hello. Hope you like as much as I do. (p.s. These photos were shot by the lovely Lucinda Taffs — check out her website, it’s amazing stuff.)Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I love living in New York, and I do believe that attending the international fashion weeks is a privilege, not a chore, but after a solid month of shows in Milan, Paris and New York (men’s and women’s), not to mention freezing temperatures, snow, and an internal voice — heady with fashion week-induced insecurity — that tells me all sorts of unhelpful things, it was high-time to get out of the city for a quick breather with my other half.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! If there’s one job that I’ve been coveting for as long as I can remember, it’s a Kooples campaign. I know a ton of people who’ve done them (also, a ton of people who’ve subsequently broken up), and no matter what happens, they’re such an awesome moment in time; something to show the grandkids. “When I was 25, I dated this guy for six months, and we did The Kooples campaign! We broke up soon afterwards, but it was fun while it lasted. Don’t tell your grandfather.” To be clear, Jenny and I did not shoot The Kooples campaign, but we did do a social media project with the brand for Valentine’s Day, photographed in and around the Gramercy Park Hotel by Ms Katerina Irlin (@kat_in_nyc_). One day, though, one day.Click to Continue!
1. I’m fascinated by what’s happening right now in American politics, but because I’m not a naturalized citizen of this country, all I can do is whinge and opine, whinge and opine. For the record, if I could vote, it’d be for Bernie Sanders, simply because it makes a lot of sense to me that if you take away the ability of big business to
buy influence policy, then perhaps the government would begin to operate in the interests of its citizens and not its corporations.
