PLEASURES Version 6.0


The recent delivery from Los Angeles label Pleasures has already been posted here but today we thought we'd highlight some pieces and run you through the collection.

Inspired by everything that was cool, interesting and funny about the 90's, this collection will bring a smile to everyone's face.

You have "PMA" print originally coined by the HR from the Bad Brains where Pleasures reinterprets "positive mental attitude" in their own way. Other featured items include "Meat Is Murder" cap ( will keep all Smiths fans / Vegans very happy), Nervous Breakdown cap ( Hank and the boys would be stoked on this one) and even a Bjork reference.

The popular pieces are spread throughout the collection from the bright orange Pleasures "FOUND" long sleeve to the Richard Prince "Punchline Hoody". There's plenty for everyone. And if you are starting to feel the willy chilly, the "PMA Sweatpants" are a good option.

You can find Pleasures Version 6.0 in Violent Green Albert Street store and online here

VANS Checker Tape Authentic available in Black and White


Trending.... CHECKERS! Yes, that's right, its back...the black and white checkerboard print is coming back with a vengeance. We've seen it on all the top players/ fashion icons/ fashion influencers and its popping up in a few new season collections too. Vans have been offering the checkerboard classic 'slip on' for years and now they've moved this print to the side sole of the popular Authentic lace ups. The Checker Tape Authentic are a great option for that black and white outfit yet also working perfectly with a more toned down outfit to make it pop.

You can find the Vans Checker Tape Authentic in Violent Green Albert street store and online here

VIOLENT GREEN GIVEAWAY - COLOSSAL MOVIE TICKETS


Thanks to Transmission Films, we've got a handful of double passes to giveaway to the new film Colossal. All you gotta do is contact us at this link and have in the subject 'Colossal' to win. First 5 to contact, win one double pass each!
*Please note, winners must be able to collect tickets from our Albert street store.

Starring Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway, the film is the latest sci-fi masterpiece from writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (TIMECRIMES, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, OPEN WINDOWS). 

COLOSSAL - In cinemas April 13 at Palace Centro

Synopsis- Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an out-of-work party girl who, after getting kicked out of her apartment by her boyfriend, is forced to leave her life in New York and move back to her hometown. When news reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, South Korea, Gloria gradually comes to the realisation that she is somehow connected to this far-off phenomenon. As events begin to spin out of control, Gloria must determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world. 

Deconstructing the monster movie genre in wildly imaginative ways, writer-director Nacho Vigalondo (TIMECRIMES, EXTRATERRESTRIAL, OPEN WINDOWS) unleashes a fantastical tale that also triumphs as a wholly original and subversive romantic comedy. Featuring an empowering central performance by Anne Hathaway — playing a train-wreck fumbling toward redemption as she did in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED — COLOSSAL is that rare beast, the story of a woman battling for her survival and taking control of her own life in the shadow of two very different monsters on either side of the world. Releasing at Palace Centro from April 13.
