MONSTERA LEAF NECKLACE by Karen Walker



The Karen Walker Monstera Leaf Necklace and earrings are such Karen Walker statement pieces. Featuring a design inspired by the Monstera Genus (whose leaves are known for their heart-shaped appearance) it fits right in with the floral themes of the Karen Walker Autumn/Winter collection “Garden People”. The tortoise shell resin has colours reminiscent of Autumn and it’s all held together with the always popular Karen Walker filigree.

This necklace and earrings has a lot going for it, but just in case 
you needed any more convincing you can take it home for only $65 
(for the necklace) and $45 for the earrings. Doesn’t get much better 
than that. Shop this item in our Albert street store or online here

NAVY POLKA DOT CREW KNIT by Vanishing Elephant


Vanishing Elephant has always made great, dependable men’s essentials and this Autumn/Winter 15 collection is no different. Take for example the Crew Knit in Navy Polka dot.  It’s a reliable classic crew neck shape, easy to wear, perfect for layering but adds the small white polka dots to give it that Vanishing Elephant edge. This piece goes back perfectly with the rest of the collection so why not check it out in our Albert Street store or online here.

SEEDLING T-SHIRT DRESS by Karen Walker


The Karen Walker T-Shirt Dress is one of those super flattering cuts that it makes an appearance in almost every collection. The latest Autumn/Winter collection from Karen Walker sees this dress return with an exploded floral print. Like most pieces from this season, the print is inspired by British gardening culture from the late 1940’s – 1970’s.  The print really compliments the colour palette we all associate with Autumn  - maroons, yellows and oranges. The flowers themselves are  done in a more ‘traditional’ way, like the illustrations you would find in an older encyclopaedia. This makes the print more contemporary and less of a cliché. Find this dress and other Karen Walker pieces in our Albert St City Store and online www.violentgreen.com.au

WHITLOCK by Vans (Off The Wall Collection)


Vans is one of the newer additions to the Violent Green line-up and has been extremely popular since arriving.The latest style to drop are the Whitlock shoes from the “Off the Wall” collection. This premium shoe is leather/suede rather than canvas and is available in all white or black with white sole. Little details such as the “OTW” on the tongue and “Vans” tab at the back makes for a subtle distinction between the classic Vans collection and OTW range.In an environment where sneakers are all the rage, you can’t pass up a good pair of Vans. Available in our Albert Street store and on the Violent Green online store here

Angus Nailhead Shirt and Cooper Jacket by Saturdays Surf Nyc


Saturdays Surf NYC has built quite a reputation on making classic, easy-to-wear pieces with that ‘little bit extra’.  This season the guys have outdone themselves, delivering a really fresh collection that would fit into anyone’s wardrobe. Two pieces that really encompass the aesthetic from this season are the Angus Nailhead Shirt and Cooper Jacket. A Nailhead weave provides an interesting, textured look to the classically fitting Angus Nailhead Shirt.  Wear it back with some chinos and a pair of derby’s, or maybe some denim jeans and leather sneakers. If there is one thing Saturdays Surf NYC do well, it’s versatility.The Cooper Jacket has the fit of a vintage coaches jacket, but done in a way that is right on point.  The ‘pebble’ main and the contrasting blue collar sit easily next to each other, a nice subtle detail which adds dimension to the block colour.  It’s already Autumn and the days are going to start getting colder (not to mention the nights) so get prepared now before you’re left in the cold (pun pun pun). Browse here on our online store or visit our Albert St City Store.

SONG OF THE WEEK!


I've been listening alot to Scottish band LOWLIFE lately. Such easy listening with those jangly guitars and 80s/90's sound. If you are a fan of New Order or the Cure, give these guys a go. Enjoy!

SO BROKE SWEATSHIRT by Lazy Oaf


Lazy Oaf is back this season with a whole new menwear design team and the new changes are quite evident.
 So wearable, but still retaining that fun, cheeky vibe that Lazy Oaf is known for. A great example of this is the Mens So Broke Jumper. A classic raglan sleeve crew neck with flocked embroidery detail, for that easy, no drama’s fit. Here we’ve paired it back with a regular pair of jeans, a polo (all by Saturdays Surf NYC) and some floral socks by Vanishing Elephant. The tongue-in-cheek embroidery is just awesome. Never again will you be asked to buy someone a drink, just walk around proudly with this jumper on and enjoy your night

Mens Paper Shirt by Stolen Girlfriends Club


There's been plenty of hype and excitement for the upcoming range from Stolen Girlfriends Club. This season sees the trio pump out some great bold prints and also some tasty wintery plaid. They'll obviously do it with the signature Stolen touch (which is always the charm about this label). We've only received the one style (boys looking for great shirting are in luck!) but we do have plenty more still to come. Pop on over to our Albert street store for the Stolen Mens Paper shirt or shop here
