we are handsome @ princess polly

Posted in Spring/Summer 2010/11, Swimwear by brisbane on November 21, 2010

We Are Handsome swimwear has established a cult status in the last year thanks to its striking printed bikinis, one-pieces and mens trunks. The spring/summer 2010/11 collection features bold images of lions, flamingos, horses and more, and wearing them (to the beach or to the bar) will make you feel like you are wearing art. And each design is a limited edition and hand-made in Australia – two added bonuses!

Select pieces from the collection are available now at Princess Polly, Adelaide Street, Brisbane City. Run, don’t walk!

We are just loving Gary Bigeni’s latest collection … his designs are so simple yet artful, and always use the most beautiful jersey fabrics in multi-dimensional tailoring. These pieces will take you from day to night this spring with ease.

The Spring/Summer collection has just arrived in-store at Bam & Juju, Wintergarden and you can also find his line at Bessie Head, Broadway on the Mall.

uscari – coming soon to garnsis

Posted in Elizabeth Arcade, Spring/Summer 2010/11 by brisbane on August 20, 2010

Uscari is an up-and-coming Australian label that is just about to hit the racks at Garnsis boutique, Elizabeth Arcade. The brain child of designer Krystel Davis, Uscari was born out of a love affair for the finer things in life and the beauty of detailing and unusual designs. The label is a clever twist on classic and on-trend tailoring. As seen recently on Nicole Richie while in oz, we just love this fresh and affordable label that is perfect for spring in Brisbane.
