Wednesday night was the store and fall 2010 collection launch for Brisbane label Subfusco. The boutique, on Ann Street in Fortitude Valley, showcases the label’s fashion-forward mens and womens wear within a light, cool space – think white brick walls with silver accents. And the new collection fits in perfectly with the decor, we are loving this white sequin cape from the latest collection. Check out their blog for more pics from the night and to spy on the new collection … www.subfusco.blogspot.com
