Kisschacey is a Melbourne based mens clothing label that consistently brings out really beautiful lookbooks with great photography and a really different approach to showcasing their pieces (as well as being helped by having an exceptionally attractive model...). Above is their Winter Collection 2010: This is War. The label really nails denim, with a different cut to slim jeans to allow for (or so I'm told) larger thighs, so they fit footballers etc better and allow for a tighter fit on their beefed up quads and calves.

All Hope Is Gone is their current Spring range 2010 which follows through on the photographically stunning imagery and is in Bali (I think). Below is an older collection, Autumn 2010: We Are World Changers. Shot in amongst big beautiful trees.

I keep grabbing their lookbook's when I go into Globalize and have been meaning to post about them for ages and just never got around to it, but there you go. Really well executed lookbooks from this relatively young label.

Finger in the nose

Wow. I love it when The Cool Hunter publishes some very fashion-forward children's labels. Finger in the nose is no exception - these little kids look schmick! Check out those awesome leather jackets and trenches. These outfits aren't for children, they're for little people!

Princess Polly

Princess Polly is a great online store if you're located in Australia. They stock labels such as Stylestalker, Finders Keepers, Cameo, Miss Unkon, State of Georgia and many many more that I love.

There are boutiques located in Brisbane and Sydney for those of you who can shop face-to-face, but with free shipping Australia wide with orders over $150 (and with the labels they stock, spending that much is a piece of cake) it is accessible for all of us Australian ladies!

Sorry to those of you who aren't located in Aus, but I had to post this gem anyway! x

Attitude Magazine

Attitude Magazine is a little Adelaide gem. It is a free publication that comes out quarterly. It has only been around since the beginning of 2010 (or thereabouts) but it already has a large following from girls and boys alike. It features the best in Adelaide fashion, style and popular culture and delivers it in well designed pages with some great photography.

So, next time you're out and about in Adelaide, keep your eyes peeled for a copy of Attitude. You can usually find it in cafes, pubs, clothing stores etc. wherever Rip It Up and Onion are, Attitude usually is too.

Five Thousand - The best cultural guide for things in Adelaide

Five Thousand is a guide to what's happening in Adelaide. There is a guide for each Australian city, based on their cbd postcode. For example, Melbourne has Three Thousand, Brisbane has Four Thousand and Sydney has Two Thousand. It is kind of like a magazine that comes out weekly, with articles on various events/places.

You can browse the site in the following categories: 
• hear. 
• read. 
• goods. 
• look. 
• shop. 
• watch. 
• out.
• stray.
• work.
• eat/drink.
• win!
• maps.

The Thousands have recently released an iPhone app for those who want to see what's on, on the go. Simply search 'the thousands' in the app store and hey presto! there it is.

So if you're stumped with what to do, check out The Thousands, there's sure to be something there that tickles your fancy.

Oscar The Third

Oscar The Third is a local label by designer Jessian Polk. The label has been around for quite a few years ago now, but has only come to my attention in the last year or so. The Othello collection was the Summer 2010 range and incorporates a beautiful understated colour palette of neutrals with luxe fabrics and simple, calculated cuts.

Now, their spring range which is called the Sweet Jane collection is out. This range follows a neutral palette as well but with a dash of burnt orange here and there to brighten it up. The cuts are once again simple and confident, making this label so very wearable.

It is stocked at Shop Five in Melbourne street for us Adelaidians, for other stockists across Australia & Asia please check their website.

Happy weekend all! The weather in Adelaide is pretty dismal, so I think I'll be laying low with this month's Yen & Vogue to keep me company... I might venture out tonight though, who knows.
