sportsgirl likes alpha60 & Ellery

Posted in Autumn Winter 2010 by brisbane on March 24, 2010

Sportsgirl just keep the amazing collaborations coming! They have just launched their latest ‘likes’ collection with Melbourne designer Alpha60, and are launching a range next month with uber-cool Ellery. 

The exclusive 9-piece Alpha60 range is inspired by Marchesa Luisa Casati, a now forgotten but notorious early 20th Century celeb, featuring a playful mix of luxurious fabrics and prints with t-shirts, jackets and mini-dresses. While the Ellery range is rock-infused with sharp tailoring and tones of nude, soft pink and charcoal offset against leopard print.

Available in selected Sportsgirl stores only – and yes that includes the Queen Street Mall store

chanel inspired

Posted in Broadway on the Mall, Elizabeth Arcade, Inspiration, QueensPlaza by brisbane on December 16, 2009

The Queen Street Mall has gone a bit crazy for Coco Chanel lately.  QueensPlaza held the ‘Three Weeks with Coco Chanel’ photographic exhibition throughout November and December (finished on Sunday), and last week the Queen Street Mall treated customers with an encore screening of Coco Avant Chanel at The Regent Cinema.

So in keeping with the trend we thought we’d put together some looks inspired by some of Coco Chanel’s greatest quotes …

“A woman is closest to being naked when she is well dressed.”

Gary Bigeni Carla dress, $465, from Bessie Head, Broadway on the Mall

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same”

Sportsgirl top, $40, from Sportsgirl, Queen Adelaide Building

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

Sass & Bide ‘Hurts so good’ dress, $390 from David Jones, QueensPlaza

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”

Stolen Girlfriends Club jacket, from Violent Green, Elizabeth Arcade

“The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”

Something Else dress, $129.95, from General Pants, Albert Street
