Autumn Womenswear by Vanishing Elephant


Vanishing Elephant has delivered yet another exceptional drop to our stores.  These guys are the epitome of classic cool and their latest range is well in keeping with this aesthetic they’ve become known for. Based in Sydney, the team at Vanishing Elephant make ‘honest clothing for everyone, everyday.’ Their cuts are as classic as they’ve always been, but they’ve changed up their branding this season and even added some fancy embroidery work.  You can’t go wrong with a good chambray so we’ve got their Raglan Shirt Dress and Oversized Long Sleeve (embroidered!) to ensure we can all get some of that ‘cool’ that embodies the fine folk at VE head office ( in particular that little cutie Ana Diaz:).

ETCH SPEAR EARRING by Meadowlark


According to New Zealand label, Meadowlark, they create ‘timeless totems to be forever cherished’.  This pair of Etched Spear Earrings is no exception; a handcrafted triumph.  With an impressive following that includes Bat For Lashes and Allison Mosshart it’s clear to see that these guys are doing well for themselves.  These studs are 51mm in length and made from sterling silver.  The detailing is fantastic and ensures they catch light from every angle. At just $119 these are a great addition to any collection and will surely be a ‘timeless totem’.

JOYOUS EYEWEAR by Karen Walker



Karen Walker, who came from humble beginnings in New Zealand, first started her fashion brand in 1989. With her Husband, Mikhail Gherman as its creative director, the duo have become incredibly powerful in the industry, now showing exclusively at New York Fashion Week. Over the years Karen has been noted for her excellent collaborations.  Most recently she was approached by the Ethical Fashion Initiative to collaborate on her eyewear range, ‘Visible’.  The Ethical Fashion Initiative pairs amazing artisans from impoverished nations all around the world with top designers.  These artisans produce some of their outstanding work in exchange for a healthy wage and in turn higher quality of living.  These Joyous frames in Crazy Tort from Karen Walker’s Visible collection come with a pouch handmade in Kenya by some of these participating craftspeople.  Taking it one step beyond, Karen featured the people who made these pouches in the campaign imagery.  This particular pair is one of our favourites, with its double bridge and classic tortoise shell frame.  It is available with a limited edition pouch in our Albert Street City store for just $295.

NEW ARRIVALS from VANISHING ELEPHANT


"Effortless" and "chic" are how I'd describe the new delivery from Vanishing Elephant. And it doesn't hurt to add some great detailing (check out the collar on the Oversized L/S!). I've just purchased the Raglan shirt dress and its been a dream to wear during these balmy days. 

These pieces are available in Violent Green stores or shop the collection here

LOONEY TUNES COLLECTION by LAZY OAF


Porky Pig first stepped onto the Warner Brothers’ scene in 1935 and has become an iconic figure for generations.  He famously closes off each of the Warner Brothers cartoons with "Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-... That's all, folks."  Funnily enough the initial voice actor for Porky Pig actually suffered from a stutter.

THAT'S ALL FOLKS HEART OVERSIZED T SHIRT (black)

Porky Pig has appeared in more than 153 cartoons and was one of the first characters/actors to say the word ‘bitch’ on television: after smacking his thumb with a hammer he grimaces in pain and exclaims, "Oh, son of a bi-bi-, son of a bi-bi-, son of a bi-bi-bi-... gun!" after which he turns to the camera to say "Ha-ha-ha! You thought I was gonna say 's-s-son of a bitch, didn't ya?!".  If you’d fancy a bit of history on your person look no further than Lazy Oaf’s Porky Pig collection.  We’ve got several pieces in stores including the ‘Porky Pig’ Denim Shirt and ‘That’s All Folks’ Tee for the guys and the ‘That’s All Folks’ Porky Crop and ‘That’s All Folks’ Heart Tee for the dolls.
