désordre is a cult designer destination showcasing a carefully curated stable of coveted and hard to find designers.

Founded by Sydney stylist Shannon Thomas in 2008, désordre began as a travelling pop up across locations including Paddington, Bondi and Brisbane, before settling permanently in its Darlinghurst Space.

Aimed at the eclectic, down to earth and fashion forward customer, désordre presents game changing international labels like Prism, Sophia Webster, Jonathan Simkhai and Preen, along with local talents such as Ellery, Michael Lo Sordo, Dion Lee and Christopher Esber. ‘The difference between désordre and other boutiques is that walking into this space feels like wandering into your best friend’s vast walk-in wardrobe.’ Said Thomas, ‘We wanted to bring beautiful things from all over the world for the désordre customer, and at the same time make sure they have a personable, fun and genuine experience without the pretence.’

With a considered edit of clothing, accessories, jewellery and exclusive pieces from Gabriela Artigas, Preen, Osman, and National Standard, désordre will always be the first in delivering the season’s most relevant trends and designer names.

Nobody Denim unveil new campaign

Monday 17th August: Nobody Denim release the highly anticipated Power collection, following the launch of #PowerBlk, the iconic Black Skinny jean category introduced by Nobody Denim at the start of the year.

A range that encourages self-expression and celebrates personal style, the collection is supported by the Power campaign. With a focus on attitude, the campaign was styled by Ilona Hamer, features model Nicole Pollard and captures the spirit of the Nobody Denim girl through a series of strong, urban, street-style images, shot on the streets of Soho, New York.

Made in Melbourne, Australia, the collection includes 5 core styles. Carrying-over the sell-out #PowerBlk styles in the Cult and Siren rise, the range introduces an additional 3 new staples, the Cult Flare in Black, Geo Skinny in White and the Skinny Ankle in Navy. All styles are created using the Nobody Denim #NewTech fabric, a material designed to provide structure and support whilst offering ultimate control and recovery. The Power range will offer the most smoothest appearance without ever losing it’s shape.

Priced from $189 and dropping in store from 17th August, the Nobody Denim Power campaign celebrates a new generation of powerful styles – available through Nobody.com.au

About Nobody Denim: Nobody Denim began within a small, family-built denim laundry in the backstreets of Melbourne, Australia in 1999. To this day everything Nobody Denim produces comes out of the same laundry.

Nobody Denim is a label founded on the belief that making jeans can be imbued with integrity and creativity; representative of their love affair with denim. Nobody Denim begin by designing their own unique tools and techniques for hand customisation and have spent decades since discovering everything there is to know about denim.

Melbourne is Nobody Denim’s heart and soul. The designs, ethos, outlook and aesthetic are deeply entrenched in its birth city and we take pride in representing Melbourne on a world stage.

The new resort collection from sass & bide: Kiss The Sky

An ode to summer for the global woman. kiss the sky captures the essence of sass & bide’s sprit; the strong, obscure & the beautiful. Experience a journey of architectural shapes softened by organic & flowing fabrics.

Pattern, texture & volume reflect the immense power of the ocean & the contrast of the tides. A contradiction in terms, unfolding & unfettered yet structured with purpose.

Bespoke metallic prints explore new heights in languid lines & flowing forms. Classics shapes have been reawakened with agile triangular cut-outs & silhouettes, creating both fluidity and a framework for each piece.

Shimmering, silver yarns tell the tale of twilight. The twinkle of stars in the sky & the moon glow on the ocean. The sass & bide spirit runs free, with translucid greens & denim blue hues cast amongst a primary palette of black & white. The S&B ‘mud ball’ is reanimated in small textured balls, accenting against sharp lines to create playful, feminine silhouettes.

Their hand woven Panama hat makes its debut with an exquisite deep brim. Celebrating it’s artistry routes, each panama is made entirely from Paja Toquilla, a plant only grown in Ecuador, hand woven in the same historic way passed from one generation to the next.

The ethereal tone across the collection is complimented with traditional silver accoutrement, adorned with the sass & bide heritage herringbone detail.

You are invited to kiss the sky.
