Groovy, baby – Billionaire Boys Club’s latest drop goes subtly psychedelic

By all accounts, the 1960s were a pretty wild time – the Vietnam War was raging and the American youth were revolting against the violence around them by advocating for peace. From this counterculture sprang the hippie movement, and with it came a whole new wave of fashion. Free love and flower power were the name of the game, with many followers of the movement wearing their hearts on their sleeves via tangible symbols of tolerance and pacification. It is this time period that has influenced the Billionaire Boys Club’s Fall 2017 drop, infusing touches of the era with its own signature aesthetic. more

Salt Gypsy merges sustainability, sass and style for its swish surf gear

Sport in general tends to be a man’s world, which very much blows. As well as getting paid significantly less and often being shirked by the media in favour of their male counterparts, too often women in sport are represented as a less gritty, more pretty alternative. For example, in the world of surfing you’d be forgiven for thinking that the ladies are bound to bikinis, boardies and rashies, but there’s a player on the scene that’s offering a killer alternative. Salt Gypsy is pioneering a movement that celebrates female surf athleticism, diversity and style in equal measure, designed by those who walk the walk. more

Face the facts – here’s the rad stuff you could afford if you didn’t pay bank fees

Being an adult is exceptionally difficult and that is a stone cold fact, son. You might think you’re totally killing it by maintaining strong relationships, holding down a great job, finding time to socialise and going to the gym at least semi-regularly (you go Glen Coco!) but nobody has this whole grown-up thing locked down. Amongst neglected houseplants and awkward post-liking during a deep Facebook lurk, personal finances are some tricky waters to navigate. For example, do you have any idea how much you’re paying in account fees with your bank? Here at The Weekend Edition we sure didn’t, so our friends at BOQ challenged us to take a look at how much we were coughing up and where it could be better spent – on totally baller stuff. more

The Weekend Series: five things we are vibing on in August

In our opinion, August tends to be less appreciated than other months of the year. Perhaps it’s because it’s the last winter month before the delights of spring arrive, or maybe were too busy not ignoring how fast the year has gone that we purposely don’t acknowledge that August exists, but the middle child of the yearly dozen never fails to bring some exciting happenings to the table. This August is packed with coolness, including news of bars serving canned cocktails, cracking new television shows, handy technological accessories and more. See, if you paid attention to August every once in a while, perhaps you’d see all it has to offer. more
