Vittoria Coffee launched the annual Vittoria Fashion Series for 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia during the week of May 12-18th. As a proud supporter of the Australian Fashion Industry, the Vittoria Fashion Series is a unique collection of limited edition ceramic and takeaway cups, created by Australia’s best designer talent. Vittoria Coffee hosted an intimate canapé lunch at Icebergs Dining Room Bar to celebrate the launch.

As a proud supporter of the Australian Fashion Industry, the Vittoria Fashion Series is a unique collection of limited edition ceramic and takeaway cups, created by Australia’s best designer talent. The 2019 Vittoria Fashion Series features 12 new designs from leading Australian Designers; Dion Lee, Macgraw, Nobody Denim, Venroy, We Are Kindred and Vittoria Coffee Design Award winner, Caroline Reznik.

Designers engaged in the Fashion Series along with fashion, food and lifestyle media and digital influencers were hosted by Rolando Schriato, Managing Director, Vittoria Food and Beverage. The roaming canapé lunch featured signature Icebergs Regional Italian cuisine, while Perrier Jouët and Aperol Spritz were served on arrival. The Fashion Series designer cups were displayed throughout the space, highlighted by signature Vittoria gold accents and deep, tonal florals.

Dion Lee was inspired by “sensuality and lingerie” in selecting the two prints for the series from his Spring/Summer 2019 collection, ‘Privacy.’ Dion Lee says of the prints selected for his collaboration with Vittoria Coffee, “The notion of privacy sets the tone through sensuality + lingerie. It is about controlling what people see and don’t see.”

Melbourne based Nobody Denim selected prints from their Resort 2020 collection, ‘Artist Not the Muse,’ which celebrates the brands 20th anniversary. The two prints featured offer a nod to the era of surrealism and impressionism and remain loyal to the brand’s denim foundations. Nobody Denim embraced this theme of wearable art to collaborate with inspirational young artist, Talia Blank to create an impactful print featuring the inquisitive curves of the female face. The brand’s second design celebrates denim’s truest hue, the Indigo Rinse, as a homage to Nobody Denim 20th anniversary.

Born in Bondi Beach in 2011, Venroy encapsulates the leisure-centric Bondi lifestyle, with the brand concept being developed over many years spent on Sydney’s beaches. Venroy’s Bondi Sunset sunset print captures the spirit of Sydney, while the brush stroke design ties in the artisanal nature of hand painting with the technical nature of Venroy’s iconic swim shorts.

Contemporary Australian womenswear label, We Are Kindred, have selected two prints from their whimsical Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, ‘Meadows’ to be a part of the Vittoria Fashion Series. The brand’s iconic, bespoke floral prints are brought to life by the rich and vibrant autumnal colour palette and a mixture of bohemia and sensuality, showcasing the DNA of the brand.

To further strengthen the ongoing support towards Australian fashion and to enrich the Australian fashion industry, Vittoria announced Caroline Reznik as the winner of the inaugural Vittoria Coffee Design Award.

Whitehouse Institute of Design Student, Caroline Reznik received $5,000 to further her studies as a part of the award, as well as the opportunity to be featured in the Vittoria Fashion Series, alongside leading Australian designers who have a strong presence not only locally, but on a global level. Vittoria Coffee Design Award winner, Caroline Reznik looks to Renaissance artwork and Classical Ballet for inspiration for the two line drawing prints selected to be a part of the Vittoria Fashion Series for 2019.

Vittoria will activate at on-site at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week within Carriageworks as a pop-up cafe, designed by one of Sydney’s most prolific Interior Designers of hospitality spaces, Matt Woods. The ultra-modern pop-up installation has been designed utilising a zero waste construction method and is a nod to Vittoria’s influence on Australia’s cafe culture.

Sass & Bide launch limited edition tee with Barnardos

This Mother’s Day sass & bide are excited to be celebrating their long-standing partnership with Barnardos© Australia with the launch of their limited-edition kids and adults embellished tees.

They have christened this year’s limited-edition tee Family, as that is very much the heart and soul of both sass & bide and Barnardos. As they do every year, 100% of profits from the sale of their women’s and mini-me kids tees go directly to support Barnardos.

In support of the campaign, they have invited a selection of inspirational women, children and mothers to capture them and their children in the new sass & bide Family tees including Nikki Phillips, Samantha Harris, the kids from Barnardos and more.

A massive thank you goes to the ongoing support and love of the sass & bide customers, who have helped to raise awareness and over quarter of a million dollars ($250,000) in support of the incredible work Barnardos do to break the cycle of disadvantage for thousands of Australian children and their families.

The limited-edition tees are available from Monday 6th May at sass & bide boutiques, sassandbide.com and participating Myer stores. RRP $160 for the Grande Famille (adults) & $90 for the Petite Famille (kids) tees.

LEVI'S as seen on Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid celebrated her denim-themed birthday party by wearing a custom Levi’s® Trucker Jacket and Levi’s® 501® Jeans made by the Levis® Haus tailor, which included her age and favourite number “24” on the front of her jeans and the back of her jacket.

Borrowed from him, re-imagined for you. The Levi’s® Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket is bigger, longer and looser than Levi’s® traditional fit. It’s designed with an extra-relaxed silhouette and elongated hem to create the oversized look.

The 501® Jean is the first blue jean ever and has been a canvas for self-expression since Levi’s® invented it in 1873. True to the original, this jean features the iconic straight fit and signature button fly and is made to last.

Levi’s Ex-Boyfriend Trucker Jacket, RRP: $149.95 AUD
501 Jeans, RRP: $149.95 AUD
