Happy birthday to me.
Now seems as good a time as any to announce that I am no longer an intern. I am officially an employee of an Australian fashion magazine.
Frockshop is an online retailer specialising in Australian and international designers, and they’re pretty brilliant when it comes to social media. They have a very active blog, and I was lucky enough to be asked to do a guest post on San Francisco’s street style – it’s just gone live and you can read it here.
As an added bonus, they’ve offered readers of The Animal Orchestra a 10% discount off any stock available at Frockshop (including sale items!) – just enter animalorchestra when making a purchase to redeem it! The code is valid until September 16th, and apparently they’re just about to get some very exciting new stock in from the likes of Ellery, ManiaMania and Arnsdorf (hands off the Ellery x Graz sunglasses, they’re mine).
All black everything and the provocation of an inverted cross. I’ve fallen hard for Does Not Equal, a brand whose aesthetic so perfectly matches my own. I love the clean simplicity of this piece, and that the connotations it evokes are neither clean nor simple.
Some fragments from my trip to San Francisco.
