All eyes on me – Assembly Label launches its chic unisex sunglasses range

Simplicity is a really tricky thing to nail, especially when it comes to fashion. If something is too pared back it becomes bland, but if the designers refuse to edit and refine it can all become a mess. One name that has always been a go-to for the perfect balance is Assembly Label, the Sydney staple that has been dressing us in its covetable threads since 2007. If you love yourself some minimalism, you will be pleased to note that Assembly Label has dropped a killer unisex range of sunglasses – and yes, it’s just as chic as you would expect. more

Bold as love – Happy Socks celebrates the legendary Keith Haring with a fresh capsule collection

The worlds of art and fashion have always been intrinsically linked – each has inspired the other all throughout history. Certain names go beyond the coming and going trends to become true beacons of pop culture, and one such person was Keith Haring. The phenomenal pop-artist ruled 1980s New York City with his bright, bold and undeniably optimistic works, creating a legacy that is still recognised to this day. It is these qualities that inspired purveyors of joy Happy Socks to celebrate his work with a limited edition capsule collection. more

Flower power – Tyler, the Creator and Converse drop the next round of colourful collab GOLF le FLEUR*

Hip-hop and sneakers go together like peas and carrots – it’s a simple fact. The two cultures are so intrinsically linked that it just makes sense when artists and brands link up to collaborate. Sometimes these pairings end up being a dubious cash-grab, with poor adoring fans buying the shoes simply because a name is attached. Other times, the world is gifted with a collection that is totally and genuinely rad – a case in point being the teaming up of Tyler, the Creator and Converse to create GOLF le FLEUR* more

How many times have you signed up to a service to access a one-off deal and then swiftly forgotten about it only to cop a ‘membership’ fee a year later because you forgot to unsubscribe? We do this sort of stuff all the time with the little things (hello, multiple streaming services), but it really does add up. One of the biggest things taking a chunk out of our hard-earned income is roadside assistance, but the game has totally changed with gotU. more
