Lick Clothing

April 21, 2010

For this post, I am taking a more personal approach (which I usually try to avoid). BUT- after my attention was directed to this ‘review‘ on Lick Clothing- I felt I should probably provide a proper and more personal review of the store.

The statement was made that “some clothes were way over priced as such and the same product but better quality would easily be bought in other stores such as “cotton on” or “mink pink”.”

While this person has the right to his or her opinion, I highly disagree with this statement. Cotton On is a decent store where I buy basics from, however the style they produce does not really overlap with the style stocked at Lick Clothing. As for the clothing being over priced- on the contrary Mary. I have never been more satisfied with the prices from Lick. I believe that in the majority of small businesses, designer labeled tops may cost up to $60. Today however, I walked in and managed to find a few tops under $40 and on occasion, I have bought skirts for $35.

They stock more than clothes too! They have the quirkiest shoes to offer along with some unique accessories such as necklaces and brooches. They always promote local music and artists which more people need to do. And don’t get me started on the people that work there- they are always friendly with a smile and only too happy to help you out.

For all those of you in Perth, or will be visiting Perth soon- I highly suggest you all to visit Lick Clothing and help support this adorable small business and keep it going!

If you’re curious about the art exhibitions they’ve held in the past, all details about the artists and musicians they have supported are available on their website.

Lick Clothing is situated on:
25 Market St
Fremantle, 6160

Perth Street Lookbook

April 18, 2010

This is the first of many evidences of me being a creepy person on the street. On the way to the Huge Vintage Sale in North Perth, I realised I’m gonna stalk more people on the street, take a photo of them and put them up here for all people to see. It’s to show people that Perth style isn’t as derro/bogan as people think. For the non-Australian readers, what I’m trying to say is that despite Perth being a small city in a massive state, we still got style!

So enjoy the small amount of photos for now, but I hope it will build up quickly.

Nudie Jeans Co.

July 3, 2009

eee

Jeans shopping is such a pain but you know that once you found the right pair (or 5) you’ll pretty much wear them out till beyond repair. Nudie Jeans has been so popular recently because it seems to fit well as well as provide people with the right style that most are looking out for- cuz they have an unbelievable range of jeans available from the Average Joe slack wear to the Thin Finn skinnies. And to match the large range of fit, is the variety of colours!

Despite the name, the company does sell tees, collared long/short sleeve shirts, jackets, accessories eeeeeven underwearr! The main concept for these jeans turns into something philosophical:

We love jeans, a passion we share with everyone who mourns a pair of worn out jeans as a close friend. Jeans share the same soul and attitude as music. The inspiration springs from the same dreams. As a true jeans brand we are not looking for the short-term trends. The inspiration is far from glamour and catwalks. The collection is tight, like a rock band, reflecting the feeling of everyday life.

Design goes beyond creating just a product that serves to fulfil a need or a function. The philosophy of Nudie jeans is to become part of your dreams. Jeans have a natural built-in dream and attitude.

Nudie will stay true to jeans and all about jeans.

Nudie is the ”naked truth about denim”. Denim has the ability to age beautifully – formed by its user into a second skin, naked and personal. The longer it lives the more character it gets. The indigo is a living colour that fades and gives the denim its character. The more you wear your jeans the more beautiful they get. Jeans are more than just a piece of clothing.

In Perth, Nudie Jeans can be found innn-
Highs & Lows – 1/672 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley- 08 9272 9893
Ricarda- 91 Waratah Ave, Dalkeith- +61 8 9389 9494
Subway DC- Freo, Perth City & Claremont

Have fun exploring your denim style!

Johnny Cupcakes

My name is Johnny and I make clothes with cupcakes on em. Have you had your cupcake today?

This guy is an awesome designer with a great concept behind his label. I’m a big fan of his designs- they’re all so quirky and witty!

The Story Begins….
Customers like and appreciate the story behind my brand. I started this as a joke, from the trunk of my beat up 89′ Toyota Camry; a college drop out — drug and alcohol-free lifestyle — turned down a lot of investors — Took countless risks — kept my shirts out of heaps of chain stores. Yeah, I could of made a TON of money real quick, but I chose quality over quantity.

The stores are located in the US but you can order from the Online Store. AND they have even provided a list of ‘Nutritional Facts” to make sure you’re ordering the right size tees.

a

Just to show you how damn popular these tees are for men & women- check out the store and the line outside of it! His store is set out to be similar to a food store as opposed to a clothing store to keep his ‘cupcakes’ vibe.

Heyday Footwear

More goodies for sneaker enthusiasts!

“Heyday is a design-driven brand focused on combining disparate creative elements to form an entirely new style–one that is equally at home on the streets of Tokyo or New York. Heyday traces its design roots to the authentic wedge-soled work boot made popular by Tokyo’s elite trend setters and part of the classic American workingman’s uniform. The use of premium leathers, comfort features and original design throughout the entire line separates the collection from all other street wear influenced athletic products on the market.”

Darin Hager has been designing since 1995 for such brands like Puma. He started up Heyday in 2006 and it has already grown so much in three years. He aims to create designs that are truly original and unique by trying to combine different concepts.

For each shoe, you truly get a description.
Example:

Shift LowWhite/Black SL2002
– Premium white full grain leather with perforated black suede quarter panel
– Signature Heyday triple stitch
– Perforated and unlined quarter panel for airflow
– 2 color rubber cupsole with 360 degree stitching
– Full length memory foam over molded EVA footbed
– Terry cloth lining
– Slim last and multi density insole board

Okay- slightly biased as I have just bought a pair for myself (the pretty white ones in the first photo). But the shoes are yummy! They have such varied designs of sneakers which include the ‘typical’ sneakers and also some of the more creatively designed sneakers. This includes canvas high tops and velcro straps in crazy colours and materials- and a decent range for women! The brand also extends to making sandals and sexy travel bags too. Have a look through the site and pick out some of your favourites- if you’re in Perth, you can get the widest selection from Key Sole on Collie St, Freo.
