had to share the amazing samantha wills high summer collection 'sunset noir'. possibly our favorite to date. luxe pieces to make you feel special. or a gift to remember. 

 'sunset noir was inspired by time spent in new york city. i love the way the sun sets and casts a palette of gold, blush and burnt orange over the harsh metals of the buildings and city streetscape. summer in new york is all about soaking up the sunlight during the day, then throwing on a frock with some jewels and catching up with friends for a night of cocktails in a rustic loft bar'.

'for this collection, my muse was a woman in late 1970’s nyc.... her accessories are wearable yet statement. by day she would visit galleries in soho, wearing layered long necklaces with a crisp blouse and high waisted taupe pants. she would have a statement cocktail ring on her index finger and finish her look with oversized sunglasses and leather tote bag.'

totally inspired to now channel 70s luxe this summer - you?

available instore now xx

v e n r o y

we recently caught up with the boys from venroy boardshorts, theo smallbone and sean venturi ...

how did it all begin? 
it started out as an idea on the drive home 
from the beach one afternoon... however unlike most ‘daydreams’ the scheming continued everyday for a month... after far too many coffees / cigarettes a rough business plan had materialized... i guess we were both so passionate about the prospect of running our own label & its been full steam ahead ever since.

whats the philosophy behind the brand? 
boarshort architecture is very much at the heart of what we do. we make our shorts here in sydney about half an hour drive from bondi. this has given us a unique ability to oversea the manufacturing process in its entirety and impose strict quality controls. using a total of 9 different japanese juki machines to construct one short we pride ourselves in making superior swimwear.  the venroy brand is built upon a strong lifestyle immersed in summer and the antics that go along with it.

whats in the name?
it took months and months of constant verbal dribble until eventually we got to venroy. it’s a combination of both our names

who is the venroy boy?
venroy is suited to guys who can appreciate good design and structural quality. the versatility of our shorts in their ability to be worn throughout a sunny day into the night is reflective of the shenanigan-loving bloke that wears venroy.

any coastal spot with white sand, clear water, cool pools once you get your saltwater hit and good restaurant/bar variety so there’s always something to look forward to during the day

favourite pair?
our chameleon short is the underdog favorite

venroy boardies are instore now xx all styles available here.

your ideal venroy summer destination?

flamenco baby xx

whimsical leathery goods hand tooled by a bohemian byron goddess for pirate lads and gypsy ladies... skeletons and roses, pearls, silver and wood, ships and crucifixes.

'Inspired by, vintage tattoos, pirates, travelling gypsies and meaningful symbols that represent a hidden message and envoke  positivity. These accessories are made from the heart and embedded with an essence found when you close your eyes and think, feel and connect to the peace and power of the ocean, the freedom of uncemmented dancing as though no-one is watching and the excitement of worldly travels and treasure hunting.'
