FUTURE = FEMALE is the clothing line bringing fun and fierceness to the feminist conversation

You know what’s really cool about the year 2018? The fact that despite a whole bunch of global happenings trying to hold us back and strip our rights away, women are louder and more powerful that ever before. Whilst the fight for gender equality is nowhere near done, more and more ladies are stepping up to join the battle and make their voices heard. One such woman is Amy Crow, a Brisbane-based multi-disciplinary creative who has just launched FUTURE = FEMALE – a clothing label that allows you to wear your heart (and support) on your sleeve while still looking cute. more

We’ve already marked several dates on our calendar for the most anticipated films, which include charming animated adventures, empowering heist flicks, superhero blockbusters and irreverent alternative history comedies. We’re already imagining ourselves ensconced in the shrouded cinema with snacks in hand and oh-so-ready to be transported away. more

The Weekend Series: Five Netflix originals to binge in February

It’s a new year, which means a heck of a lot of good television to devour. Netflix is once again aiming to capture audiences with an incredible array of original content, from television series to standalone movies. So, what’s on the cards for the first half of the year? How does some dystopian sci-fi sound? What about some time-travelling comedy or some in-depth food exploration? We’ve also got the return of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and if that’s not enough then we’ve also got Paul Rudd with a moustache. That’s sure to move the dial! more

Protect your skin and the coral reefs with Little Urchin natural sunscreen

Us Queensland folk are generally very active – whether we're out there exercising, swimming at the beach or wading in a kiddie pool sipping spritzers, we like to spend a fair chunk of our time outdoors. Wearing sunscreen has been a routine drilled into us since we were all little tackers, but have you ever wondered about those big words that make up the ingredients list on your trusty tube of suncream? Well, Chris Matthews did ... and so begins the story of natural sunscreen brand Little Urchin. more

The 2018 Levi’s Pride Collection is giving us all of the happy feels

Levi's etched its place in fashion history when it first invented the blue denim jean back in the late 1800s. Right now, it's etching a place in our hearts with the release of the Levi's 2018 Pride Collection. What's even better is that the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow (aka the proceeds) are all going back into benefitting LGBTQ communities. This has us bursting with joy and we can't wait to rock this denim with pride. more

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.

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
