Australian fashion designer Katie Perry’s pop up store opening on Thursday 18th April saw several creative types coming together showcasing their fabulous wares. Sydney Social popped along to check it out.
Excited guests poured into Katie’s gorgeous residence on Paddington’s style mecca William Street to browse her gorgeous autumn collection and other luxury brands such as Swarovski jewellery from Jlili and boutique skincare Pink Hibiscus (a favourite of Jackie O and Bessie Bardot).
Sydney has seen a bit of a surge in the pop up phenomenon over the past few years. Rising rental prices sometimes see empty spaces for a retailer, bar or art gallery to temporarily spring up in. It’s fun for the consumers who constantly have new places to visit and an excellent way for niche retailers, who don’t necessarily want the financial burden of a full time store, to engage new customers, particularly when several retailers come together in one space.
Throughout the evening, Sydney Social enjoyed the sociability of the shopping experience and the friendly atmosphere while we bopped around to the various designers and retailers. We tasted fabulous Italian wine from Sensi Collezione and ate delicious hot canapés (served by equally delicious hot men!).
Katie Perry was on hand throughout the night to give style tips and showcase the collection. Her pop up shop will be open every Saturday and individual shopping appointments (and for further one off events).
Other guests included; Steve Clisby (The Voice), Lauren Dawes (The Voice), Adam Dixon (couture bridal designer and next-door neighbour) and Anna Lutkajitis (Skipping Girl). The beautiful flowers and decorations were supplied by Willow and Dune.
Sydney Social trivia: brief history of the pop-up shop
‘Vacant’ of Los Angeles was the first company to introduce pop-up retail. In 1999
following a business trip to Tokyo, ‘Vacant’ staff wondered whether consumers would line up to purchase limited edition products from niche retailers.
Once the products were sold out (usually within hours) the store would close until the owner received more products and would then re-open. This led ‘Vacant’ to think about closing the store permanently after the goods were sold, and moving it to another target destination, since consumers were travelling long distances to the niche retailers.
You can check out her online store is http://www.katieperry.com.au. This review was attended and written by Katie Hoskins. href=”http://sydneysocial101.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/20130424-115618.jpg”>
Hump Day for MBFWA and what a hump day it was. Highlights included, British it-girl Georgia May Jagger walked for Australian boho-cool label Camilla in what could only be described as a perfect pairing.
In addition, a strong contigent of home-grown models fresh from the Autumn Winter 2013/14 international shows like Julia Nobis, Caitlin Lomax, Amanda Ware, Montana Cox, Rachel Rutt and Ruby Jean Wilson have walked this week.
Showing against a backdrop that combines the timeless with the modern, Lisa Ho’s show at the Art Gallery of NSW was not dissimilar to its surrounds. The designer sent a cohesive lineup of timeless and feminine pieces with a modern edge down the runway.
German botanist Ernst Haeckel and French art nouveau jeweller René Jules Lalique were the inspiration behind McCall’s organic silhouettes and powder hues. Ornate prints in oceanic hues were a highlight.
SERPENT & THE SWAN
It’s botanical meets insect prints in a way you’ve never seen before. Serpent & Swan made their fashion week debut with an exciting collection of uniquely beautiful and adrogynous pieces like leather harnesses over soft dresses and handcrafted gold and brass trimmings.
WE ARE HANDSOME
We Are Handsome are one on Sydney Social’s favourites and are known for bringing a colourful and cool vision to the runway and this year saw a clear and mature brand direction which drew inspiration from the travels, memories, music and imaginations of design duo Indhra Chagoury and Jeremy Somers.
In a spectacular staging, set in Sydney’s iconic Centennial Park, Camilla showed a diversification of her original resort-focused brand in her collection ‘Pachamama’, demonstrating once again why she has a loyal following amongst the style set.
Young talent was on show at the Raffles College of Design & Commerce show with Aurelia Santoso, Gabriel Lee, Ayaka Ichikawa, Diyana Kosso, Nara Sangngern and Virginia Killroy Liu presenting fresh and exciting pieces.
BRONX and BANCO
Taking a futuristic approach to their Spring Summer collection, Bronx & Banco showcased their clean, crisp and chic designs in a collaboration with Australian artist Charles Billich. Sharp fringes and quirky makeup tied in with the ‘Fifth Element’ feel.
WATSON X WATSON
Sisters Somer and Liberty Watson have established their label in a relatively short period of time for a young brand. The label is only two years old but is showing all the signs of being an industry mainstay.
Casual classics and soft tailoring made for a wearable collection of print and colour. Vanishing Elephant’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia debut showcased menswear alongside their third womenswear collection.
‘Bandits’, the debut collection for 20-year-old designer Khim Hang was a palette cleanser of pure whites in clean lines and myriad textures. Embossed leather, silk and neoprene underpinned a sport-luxe feel.
MICHAEL LO SORDO
Thinking outside the box, Michael Lo Sordo’s new collection features flowing lines and feminine detailing melded with masculine tailoring.
MB PRESENTS EASTON PEARSON
Presenting under the prestigious MB Presents award, Easton Pearson will show ‘Hyper Real’. Described as an intense fusion of colour and super nature, the show is sure to be one of the week’s high points and a spectacular showcasing of the label’s skill and craftsmanship.
CELEBS SEEN TODAY
Georgia May Jagger, Stephanie Rice, Nikki Phillips, Deni Hines, Phoebe Tonkin, Tammin Sursok, Annalise Braakensiek, Samara Weaving and Prinnie Stevens.
Jim Beam, the world’s no.1 bourbon, pays tribute to the great Aussie icon
Thursday 21st March 2013 As the sun rose on Bondi Beach this morning, there was a slight change in the water temperature, as Jim Beam make history by turning the iconic Bondi Icebergs Pool into the world’s largest ESKY® cooler. The desire to set this record stems from the earliest values of founder Jacob Beam (1770 – 1834) – a pioneer and a man with history-making vision.
Today, Jim Beam is the world’s number one bourbon and make history everyday. What better way to continue the trend than by championing true icons of the Australian lifestyle, Bondi Beach and the ESKY® cooler.
Members of Channel Ten’s Bondi Rescue cast joined Bondi locals and intrigued passers-by this morning to marvel at the new Bondi skyline and unveil the gargantuan structure to the public.
Fred Noe, great-grandson of Jim Beam says, “At Jim Beam we take our bourbon making seriously, we felt the world’s number one bourbon deserved something, and somewhere, special to keep it cold – and where better than the world’s largest ESKY® cooler at Bondi Beach.
“In our family of seven generations of distillers, we don’t just say we’ll make history – we actually do it.” Continues Noe.
The huge structure took days to build and boasts some pretty impressive stats:
· The ESKY® cooler (measuring 36m by 15m) will be filled with approximately 2 million litres of water.
· Over 500 giant ice cubes.
· The giant structure will hold 33 supersized Jim Beam cans (1960mm diameter at a height of 3920mm).
· This ESKY® cooler has been designed to work with the infrastructure of the iconic pool – the water will float the cans, and ice, to the optimal level to give the perception that the giant cans can be easily grabbed.

The day that they call Valentines Day is almost upon us, on the 14th February couples, singles and friends and family use this opportunity to tell their loved ones just how much they mean to them.
From experience I have found that there is definitely a split opinion when it comes to Valentines Day Celebrations. They usually come in the following two categories:
These people believe that there shouldn’t be just one day that you are forced to, by society, to proclaim your undying love to your partner, friends and family. They often refer to it as a ‘Hallmark Holiday’. They feel that you should be able to make grand gestures ‘just because’, not just because it’s Valentines Day, and well that’s the done thing…
Singles also fall into this category, these singles hate romance being paraded in front of them. They ask for the ‘sick bag’ and they’ll probably arrange an ‘anti-Valentines’ evening – Cue takeaway, horror/ comedy DVD and the rest of their single/ anti-Valentines loved up friends.
Then there’s the:
This category of people love everything there is to love about Valentines, they love what it stands for, they love any excuse for a grand gesture and embrace it with both arms and share the love. They’ll book/ cook a special meal for their nearest and dearest, they’ll have flowers delivered to their respective other’s workplace and they’ll probably splash out on an expensive gift.
Singles also fall into this category too – they might go to all lengths to bag a date as they don’t like to be alone on Valentines Day. They might even want to celebrate the ‘day of love’ with their best friends and toast all that Valentines Day stands for in their minds – A day to show how much you love your friends and family. If grand gestures can be celebrated anytime, why not today?!
I have been guilty of falling into all of the above categories at some point in my life. What I can say is that I do believe that you should be able to show your loved ones how much they mean to you anytime sure, however I do think then why not celebrate Valentines Day? The day of love, romance and grand gestures – seems like the perfect time for me. (I’m of the school of thought, that if you want to do big romantics acts at anytime of year, then do! Just because you choose to do one on Valentines Day too, doesn’t use up your quota!)
Here are a number of gift suggestions, for either your partner (girl or guy), your friends on family members:

Spending a day on the water, leaping from a plane or learning to cook a killer soufflé are some of the top ways we choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, according to online experience retailer redballoon.com.au.
After selling more than 1.7 million experiences in just over a decade, RedBalloon is a popular choice for the loved-up wanting to celebrate February 14 in a romantic or adventure-fuelled fashion.
Top Valentine’s Day experiences in 2012:
2. Eating out and cooking classes
3. Massages, beauty and spa treatments
4. V8 and rally car experiences
RedBalloon customer Sheri Gould was one who opted for the skydiving option, proposing to her boyfriend Max after leaping from 14,000 feet on Valentine’s Day last year.
As part of a daredevil skydive proposal arranged by RedBalloon, Sheri surprised Max with a skydiving experience – little did he know Sheri was taking the biggest leap of her life.
“I was very nervous as we boarded the plane – I had to jump first so that I could be on the ground and on one knee ready to pop the question when Max landed,” Sheri said.
“There was a huge banner reading ‘Will you marry me?’ laid out on the ground as Max came into land, and a film crew capturing the moment for TV.
“It was a real logistical and emotional exercise. But when he said yes it was the happiest moment of my life.”
Sheri and Max plan to wed in Sydney this year.

GOLDEN SILVER COLLECTION LAUNCH L’Aqua Gold Room, Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney
THOMAS SABO invited the Australian fashion and lifestyle press on Wednesday afternoon to the launch of the new Spring/Summer 2013 Sterling Silver Collections at L’Aqua Gold Room, Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney. Around 100 media and a handful of selected celebrity guests celebrated the international lifestyle brand’s exquisite new ranges.
The THOMAS SABO GLAM & SOUL Women’s Collection renowned for its 925 Sterling silver sparkled with a completely new design signature for the brand – 18 carat yellow and rose gold plated silver. Entitled GOLDEN SILVER, this new feature of the SS2013 collection was unveiled against a backdrop of picturesque harbour views.
The modern look of the women’s collection is inspired by the fabulous designs and colours of Moorish culture and includes warm-coloured elements incorporated into the gold-plated pieces of jewellery. Drop-shaped arabesques, intensive bright turquoise and golden yellow suns from One Thousand and One Nights are combined in new style statements.
A highlight was the presentation of the new SS2013 campaign which features Poppy Delevingne as the new global brand ambassador for the Women’s GLAM & SOUL Collections. Poppy Delevingne, a top British model and internationally celebrated style icon, is the face of the evocative campaign for the women’s wear and perfectly captures the spirit associated with the GOLDEN SILVER range with her youthful twist and seductive charm.
Poppy Delevingne: “The new Spring Summer 2013 Collection by THOMAS SABO offers the modern woman every opportunity to take centre stage. With the many new combination options using silver, rose gold and yellow gold, you can find the right accessory for every occasion, every style and every personality.”
The THOMAS SABO REBEL AT HEART Men’s Collection was presented autonomously for the very first time. With countless items of jewellery with rebellious attitude, blackened silver is the material that lends the designs their special coolness. Although created for the rebellious gentleman, the REBEL AT HEART Collection includes numerous unisex items of jewellery. The celebrity testimonial for the new the men’s collection is internationally successful violin virtuoso, David Garrett. David Garrett is a huge jewellery fan and a role model for men’s jewellery as he demonstrates the courage to experiment with exceptional styles and accessories.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me, some wonderful products for my skin to make it glow youthfully…
Sydney Social 101 knows how much many men love to look after their skin, just as much as the women in their lives. With this in mind, we have pulled together a list of products that would be the ideal stocking fillers this Christmas Day!
Clinique Skin Supplies for Men Dark Spot Corrector was specially formulated for men’s skin. It contains additional reparative ingredients to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier that is constantly stripped due to daily shaving as well as anti-inflamatory ingredients to help calm and soothe irritated skin. As men’s skin tends to be more oily, the lightweight texture allows for quick absorption, leaving a soft and smooth feel after shaving. Finally, Glucosamine and Salicylic Acid work to exfoliate the skin’s surface, encouraging cell renewal and fighting against the occurrence of ingrown hairs.
Skin Supplies for Men Dark Spot Corrector is specifically designed for men and is suitable for all skin types and tones. Apply twice a day after 3-Step Skin Care Regimen or shaving. Spread evenly over the entire face, avoiding the immediate eye area. In the morning, finish with M Protect SPF 21.
Oil Free. Non-Acnegenic. Dermatologist Tested. Ophthalmologist Tested.
Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance Free.
New SSFM Dark Spot Corrector will be available at Clinique counters and at www.clinique.com.au for a suggested retail price of $92.00

As a pioneer of natural grooming, all Bulldog products are natural and never contain controversial man-made chemicals such as parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances. Instead, Bulldog products are loaded with essential oils and other amazing natural ingredients to deliver superb grooming results.
