STYLE ICON, NICOLE RICHIE LAUNCHES HER EXCLUSIVE NEW JEWELLERY COLLECTION!

Nicole Richie’s brilliant debut collection follows inspiration from her sought-after style.  Layering unexpected combinations of materials and themes, she contrasts feminine mixed with edgy and bold, and modern mixed with native.

Using leather, rivets, gold plated metals and a beautiful palette of colors to decorate the array of pieces, Nicole explores every theme true to the bohemian look; from gypsy to tribal, flower child to edgy street wear.

“I’ve always felt that great accessories are essential in every complete outfit and I wanted to create a collection that was easy to mix and match; to either wear alone as an everyday piece, or stack on to make more of a statement. I love accessories. You can wear the same jeans and T-shirt every day and make it look completely different just by accessorizing.” Nicole Richie.

INVASION DAY 2010

Australia day is the day on which the first fleet descended upon Sydney

harbor in 1788. There is a strange idea of ‘patriotism’ connected with this

date (Australia Day), forgetting that for Aboriginal people this signifies

the beginning of an era of Pain, Fear, Confusion and the Beginning of the end

of their way of life and culture (DREAMING).

Making their unique imprint in the Australian fashion scene is Bondi label Pete Versus Toby.  Creating not only fun, whitty designs, the label also has a serious side.  This range – INVASION DAY – is one which puts the focus on what  AUSTRALIA DAY really is:

This range is definitely dedicated to fashion with a conscience  …

THE BOYS IN KAISER’S COURT is a mood-filled photo shoot by one of  New York City’s best kept secrets.

Photographer SEAN P WATTERS work titled – THE BOYS IN KAISER’S COURT – features two upcoming and albeit well known faces on Ford Models board –  Isaac Carew (featured in this quarter’s L’Officiel Hommes) and Aiden Andrews (a recent winner of Ford’s Vman competition).

THE BOYS IN KAISER’S COURT illustrates the story about angst, envy and a false sense of self.  Stylized via fashion from Cavalli to Jose Duran to Manuel de la Cruz to Marc Jacobs, their world uses fashion to help them find their footing.

“They are luminous as they are tough as they are fragile yet ultimately beautiful.”

Specializing in male fashion photography, Watters style integrates his accomplished background in dance and a heavy influence of iconic women images, breathing air into the life of his provocative images to converse with his audience.

Sean’s work has been featured in Gus Magazine, New York Press, Time Out, and Fantastic Mag, with many of his editorials featuring some of the world’s most recognizable faces, for example Calvin Klein‘s Andrew Stetson, TV star Penn Badgley, and sports star of the Philadelphia PhilliesCole Hamels.
